National Piercing Day went horribly wrong for one Casper man.
Casper police arrested Stanley “Scooter” Dalton on four counts of piercing underage girls without consent from their parents or legal guardians.
Dalton, 34, is currently on probation for failing to register as a sex offender.
The parents of one girl notified police that their 15-year-old daughter had her nipples pierced at Dalton’s home. The girl and two friends went to Dalton’s home on May 16, National Piercing Day, and each got her nipples pierced, according to an affidavit.
Dalton told police none of the girls had ID on them, and that he believed them to be underage. He said he did not have permission from any parents to pierce the girls. He did anyway, according to the police report, and said he charged the girls $10 for each piercing.
On Thursday, when police went to talk with Dalton, they found a 17-year-old girl there who was talking about her belly button ring before she realized an officer was inside the house. Dalton told police that he had received consent from the girl’s aunt over the phone, but admitted that he could not verify that the person on the phone was her aunt.
