An MTA worker has been arrested after he was allegedly caught masturbating in a subway token booth. (RIP tokens.) Harold Sisselman, 51, was arrested and charged with public lewdness for the incident, according to police.

The Post fills in some of the details: Sisselman, a 22 year veteran of the MTA, was caught by a straphanger just before 11 p.m. on Tuesday at the 61st Street station in Woodside. The straphanger wanted to ask for directions when he allegedly came upon Sisselman shooting for the moon.

Police said they had no other information about the incident. So what's worse: fully awake and flogging the eggman, or snoozing on the job at a terror-targeted station? We believe an alert self-pleasuring MTA employee is the best defense against our freedom-hating enemies!
