A California man was arrested after allegedly paying a teenager $31 to spit in his face.

Ventura County authorities say the 39-year-old resident of Thousand Oaks, whose name wasn't released, has made a habit of recruiting boys on MySpace to yell profanities at him, slap him and spit at him.

The teens are male students at Westlake High School, investigators said. The man was booked on a misdemeanor child annoyance charge, then released from Ventura County Jail on a promise to appear in court.

Authorities say several teens also accused the man of offering them money to urinate and defecate on him.

His motive wasn't clear.
