Step One: Do The Dirty 

Remember this name: Sgt. Dave Karsnia. The baby-faced cop from Minneapolis might hereafter be remembered as the guy who brought down a senator.

But you might also consider him the guy whose job you least want to have. His detail? Lurking in the men's restroom at the Lindbergh Terminal of the Minneapolis International Airport, waiting to see if any dude is going to show up and hope to get lucky. Sadly, he knows this is a good place to look because several Internet chat rooms have identified it as such. Karsnia was working a plainclothes gig.

In his report, he describes sitting in a stall in the back of the bathroom, when he said he saw a guy later ID'd as Craig, hovering outside of his stall for a few minutes.

Finally, Craig gets his stall next to Karsnia. Puts his roller bag inside with him, against the door.

"My experience has shown that individuals engaging in lewd conduct use their bags to block the view from the front of their stall," Karsnia wrote in his report.

At 12:15 p.m., Craig began to tap his right foot.

"I recognized this as a signal used by persons wishing to engage in lewd conduct," Karsnia said. Craig apparently tapped his toes several times, then moved his foot closer to Karsnia's foot.

"The presence of others did not seem to deter Craig as he moved his right foot so that it touched the side of my left foot which was within my stall area," Karsnia wrote.

Shortly after that, Karsnia writes, he saw Craig swipe his hand under the stall divider for a few seconds. He did this a few times, apparently. Karsnia said he could see it was Craig's left hand because of the position of his thumb, and he could see a gold ring on the ring finger of the hand.

That was when Karsnia offered a visual signal of his own: He flashed his police identification down by the floor so Craig could see it, and pointed toward the exit.

"Craig responded, 'No!'" Karsnia wrote. Eventually he exited the stall—without flushing the toilet—and accompanied Karsnia from the bathroom "without causing a disturbance."
