His series of erotic images "Pas de Deux" provoked an outcry and his arrest on 29 October 1970 by security guards on the campus of Towson State College. Fined and forced to serve two years probation for a case that went all the way to the American Supreme Court that declined to hear the case. His work was appropriated by German artist Wolf Vostell for his work "Heuschrecken" ("Locusts") who justified his use by saying that they were "found objects."
