Umberger's been charged with posessing child porn

Good, clean fun at the Wisconsin Dells may have been what the Rev. Patrick Umberger had on his mind last year at the Noah's Ark Water Park. Parents and security guards caught him following little boys in a public restroom.

Big misunderstanding, Umberger told the Lake Delton cops. No big deal. Just trying to get some relief from the old enlarged prostate. Got to pee a lot. Wrong, the cops said. And besides, how come no request for a bathroom break during the hour-long interview?

Also, what do prostate problems have to do with this nugget reported by the LaCrosse Tribune:

Lake Delton police also forwarded the report to the Onalaska Police Department, which later discovered photos of the priest with young boys on his Facebook page, according to a criminal complaint filed Thursday in La Crosse County Circuit Court.

Maybe he was telling them about his prostate problems. Maybe not:

Umberger told a state agent Wednesday he is sexually attracted to boys and young men and searched the Internet for pictures of boys 12 to 15 years old, according to the complaint.
