Apr 20, 2008 at 9:52 p.m. ET

CNN broadcaster Richard Quest likes to tie one on -- to his genitals.

The kinky broadcaster was nabbed in Central Park well after closing time with another man. Upon closer inspection, cops found a rope tied from Quest's neck to his manly bits, an unspecified sex toy in his boot and a back full of methamphetamines in his pocket that he helpfully identified for the arresting officer, stating, "I've got some meth in my pocket."He was charge with loitering and possession of a controlled substance. His unusual accessories didn't earn him any additional charges since he was not exposing himself.Quest's lawyer Alan Abramson simply said, "Mr. Quest didn't realize that the park had a curfew."At his quick hearing in Manhattan Criminal Court, Quest agreed to undergo six months of drug counseling in return for the possibility of dismissal of all charges.Quest's official CNN bio calls him "one of the most instantly recognizable members of the CNN team" and "one of the network's highest profile presenters." If he wasn't before, he certainly is now.
