Man arrested for sharing cellphone porn video

MANKATO — A man parked in his car watching a pornographic video on his cellphone landed in jail after allegedly turning the video toward a man and woman in a semi-truck.

Mankato police were called at 10:30 p.m. Thursday to 1294 North Riverfront Drive, the Wilson Trailer parking lot.

According to the couple in the semi, they were parked in the lot when a car pulled up next to the semi. They told police they noticed the man in the car viewing a pornographic video on his phone and that he turned the screen to them so they could see it.

Police said the video did not contain child pornography.

Police arrested and jailed Jeffrey J. Swenson, 55, of North Mankato. Police are seeking charges of obscene material exhibition, disorderly conduct, public nuisance and harassment.
