Woman says she felt sexually assaulted by water-squirting toy

Woman says she felt sexually assaulted by water-squirting toy: ‘It peed on me!’


A woman is claiming she was sexually assaulted at a Teppanyaki restaurant in Tennessee on Monday when she was hit by a “urinating” plastic toy figurine used by the chef.

Isabelle and James Lassiter were dining at Wasabi Japanese Steakhouse when the chef used the water-squirting toy as a part of his array of tricks to entertain guests.

When the figurine’s toy pants are pulled down, water shoots out as if it was urinating.


“It peed on me basically!” Isabelle told WTVF. “Out of its wee-wee area.”


Furious, the Lassiters called police to report the incident.

“It was a sexual-style assault on my wife,” said James. “It shot water out of its penis.”

The Texas couple were even more angered by the fact that it happened in front of their young grandchildren.

The police incident report says the responding officer inspected the toy but didn’t find a penis, “just a hole for the water to shoot out.”

The Lassiters believe that detail is irrelevant to the alleged assault.

“Just because somebody may have cut off that little piece of plastic to say, ‘Okay it’s not there anymore,’ doesn’t change the fact that you’re getting peed on,” said James.

Restaurant manager Johnny Huang said he’s never received complaints about the toy before but that he is sorry the Lassiters were offended.

“The kids like it. They think it’s a water gun. It’s kind of like a water gun, you know?” he said.

But the Lassiters disagree. In a statement to WTVF, they wrote:

“People are missing the point. This was a sexually-oriented toy meant for adults, in front of minor children. We’re not trying to make money off of this. If the toy was in a bar, it’d be a different situation, but this was in a family restaurant with 13 to 14 year olds at the table. If people think it’s so funny, why don’t people go buy that toy and squirt a cop in the face with it and see what happens.”

No one has been charged, but according to the news station, the family is still considering pressing charges.



I just don't have the words.

Does she even know what sexual assault is?


What is Sexual Assault?

Sexual Assault is defined as an assault of a sexual nature that violates the sexual integrity of the victim. The Supreme Court of Canada held that the act of sexual assault does not depend solely on contact with any specific part of the human anatomy but rather the act of a sexual nature that violates the sexual integrity of the victim. When investigating a sexual assault, there are certain relevant factors to consider:

  • The part of the body touched
  • The nature of the contact
  • The situation in which the contact occurred
  • The words and gestures accompanying the act
  • All other circumstances surrounding the act
  • Any threats that may or may not be accompanied by force

The victim of the sexual assault can be man or woman and the attackercan be of the same sex as the victim. A spouse may be charged with sexual assault upon the other spouse.

Now, was the "toy" lewd?  Sure, it could be construed that way - specially in front of minors.

Do these people live under a rock or deep in the woods? How do they get through life? I'm assuming they don't own a TV or even leave the house. I'm sure the grandchildren loved it and thought it was hilarious. Thank the gods I didn't grow up in a stifle environment like that, and developed a sense of humour. Well, it is the US and they'll sue anyone for anything. I love Canada.
