A Potsdam man is behind bars after being accused of public lewdness at a grocery store in Massena Wednesday night.

State police arrested 41 year old John Allison of 8614 Route 11.

Investigators said Allison rubbed a packaged stick of pepperoni on his exposed penis inside the Hannaford store at the St. Lawrence Plaza.

Police said he then put the food back on the store shelf.

According to police, a Hannaford loss prevention security officer was watching Allison on video surveillance and captured the incident on tape.

In addition to public lewdness, Allison was also charged with fourth-degree criminal mischief because Hannaford is unable to sell the pepperoni.

Allison was arraigned and ordered held in the St. Lawrence County jail in lieu of $1,000 cash bail or $2,000 bond.
