A retired pastor told police in Wyoming that his high sex drive was to blame after he was arrested when he asked an undercover officer to perform oral sex on him.

The Casper Police Department on Sunday charged 75-year-old Rev. Bryant Badger with public indecency, obscene literature and incitement to a crime.

According to an affidavit obtained by the Casper Star-Tribune, Badger had left his phone number and graphic propositions scrawled in a portable restroom at Morad Park, which was discovered by a Natrona County High School coach.

Officer Mitch Baker, using the pseudonym “Paul,” contacted Badger and told him that he was willing to do “anything.” Badger recommended that they meet at the Emporium Adult Video store, where the reverend said he had “been there several times to perform sexual acts,” the affidavit said.

After meeting outside the video store, police said that Badger requested that Baker get in the backseat of his SUV and perform oral sex on him. When Badger unzipped his pants, Baker gave the signal for other officers to move in by tuning the radio to country music.

“Badger told police he had a high sex drive and could not control his urges to have sex,” the paper reported.

“It’s wrong,” Badger allegedly said.

Police said that the pastor promised them that he would never do that type of thing again.

First Christian Church Pastor Cynthia McBride confirmed to the Casper Star-Tribune that Badger had served as a pastor there for 25 years, but she declined to comment on the charges.
