Man charged after giving a ‘wet willy’ to a 4-year-old

Shelton police have charged a man who they said stuck his finger in a 4-year-old boy’s ear.

Police said 34-year-old Michael Migani put his finger in his mouth and then stuck it in the ear of a 4-year-old, in the presence of the boy’s mother. This act is also commonly known as a “wet willy.”

The incident happened in the waiting room of a business on Center Street, while the child was playing with his mother, police said. When Migani was confronted by the mother and staff, he fled in his vehicle and was stopped by Shelton police.

Migani was charged with second-degree breach of peace and second-degree reckless endangerment. He is expected to appear in court on Aug. 19.
