A Connecticut school tech worker was arrested for allegedly having a friend film him having sex with a cow while covered in jelly, WTNH-TV reported on Tuesday.
31-year-old Reid A. Fontaine was charged with one count of sexual misconduct after being arrested on Feb. 21 on a farm in Herkimer, New York. WTNH reported that Fontaine was being filmed by a friend, 35-year-old Michael H. Jones, when its crew got to the farm. Jones reportedly fled the scene after seeing WTNH arrive, but was arrested later and also charged with sexual misconduct.
The cow also fled the scene, and died after being hit by three cars on a nearby highway. The drivers of two of the cars were hospitalized.
The Hartford Courant reported that the two suspects were also caught on tape by the owner of the farm, who installed a video camera in the barn after the cows began “acting anxious and not producing milk as usual.”
Fontaine resigned from his position on Sunday. He had been working as an information technology network specialist for the public school system in Farmington, Connecticut for six months prior to the arrest. Superintendent Kathleen C. Greider told WTNH that pre-employment background checks by both local police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation showed he had no criminal history.
“The former employee did not provide instruction to students nor did he have responsibilities involving direct student contact,” the school system said in a statement. “As IT network specialist, his job involved the maintenance of the district’s technology infrastructure and hardware.”

‘He’s long ago left the fact-based world’: Ex-CIA operative takes down Trump’s lies about recapturing ISIS fighters
On Wednesday's edition of CNN's "OutFront," former CIA operative Bob Baer destroyed President Donald Trump's claims that ISIS fighters in Syria have mostly been recaptured.
"Okay. So you heard him, right? They've been largely recaptured and there were only a few who got out," said anchor Erin Burnett. "Unfortunately, it's not true. His own special envoy for Syria and the Global Coalition to Defeat ISIS an hour before the president said that, said the exact opposite thing about the escaped ISIS fighters."
"We would say that the number is now over a hundred," said Ambassador James Jeffrey in the clip. "We do not know where they are."
‘Ridiculous’ for Trump’s team to ‘feed people this line’ that Ukraine didn’t know about the frozen aid: CNN contributor
President Donald Trump and his associates have recently tried a new defense for the Ukraine scandal, claiming that there couldn't have been a quid pro quo because the Ukrainians were supposedly unaware of the military aid freeze the Trump apparently ordered to force them to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden.
On Wednesday's edition of CNN's "The Situation Room," Washington Post journalist David Swerdlick and his co-panelists smacked down that narrative.
"The New York Times reports that the Ukrainians learned in early August that aid was frozen and they were told to reach out to the acting White House Chief of Staff, Mick Mulvaney," said anchor Wolf Blitzer.

"The reason remains a mystery," the newspaper noted.
