A gay porn actor has been arrested and charged after he was found masturbating on equipment at a fire station in Louisville, Kentucky.

Last weekend, Nicholas Gonzales, 27, shattered one of the bay window doors on the building, broke in, pulled gear out of lockers in a storage room and was found masturbating on the items.

Police said he was under the influence of alcohol and when asked why he broke in, he stated: “Because I wanted to,” reports WLKY.

Damage to the bay window door is estimated at $1,000 (£655.44)

Gonzales is charged with burglary, public intoxication and criminal mischief.

Following a tip off by a reader to the website Gawker, Gonzales has been identified as the gay porn actor Donny Wright.

The reader noticed a resemblance between the two, and the name on Donny Wright’s Amazon account is Nicholas Gonzalez.

Donny Wright also tweeted from his account that he was in Kentucky on Friday 15 February – shortly before the incident.
