The man whose image was circulated by Howell Township police, for allegedly getting busy with himself in a film theater last Friday, has been identified, and has a court date, authorities said today.

Police declined to identify the suspect, who was charged with a disorderly persons offense.

A mom who took her children to the Emoji Movie complained that he began gratifying himself while sitting in the last row of the Xscape Theater on Route 9.

The nature of the charge does not rise to the level of an actual arrest, and it's handled through a summons to appear in court.
