Well, that's one way to get out of jury duty

NEW YORK -- A man serving on a grand jury has been charged for exposing himself inside a room at a federal courthouse, authorities said.

Edwin Ng, 38, was charged with committing an act of public lewdness, disorderly conduct and destruction of government property, officials said.

A female employee at U.S. District Court in Brooklyn saw the incident Friday and alerted authorities.

Ng, of Brooklyn, was given a summons and told to appear before a federal magistrate at a later date. He faces up to a year in prison and a fine if convicted, officials said.

Ng also was discharged from jury duty.

I've been through the process of jury duty selection, and ended up serving on a murder trial that rendered a guilty verdict. I never really thought about rubbing one out in the courtroom to get out of it. I'll keep that in mind next time.
