Florida Woman Arrested For Defecating In Courthouse Elevator

A Florida woman was arrested and charged with being a “nuisance injurious to health” after she defecated in a courthouse elevator.

Patricia Ann Jamison, 49, was caught on surveillance camera pooping in the St. Lucie County Courthouse elevator on March 7.

When excrement was found inside the elevator, security staff reviewed the footage and saw a woman in black and white zebra-striped pants get onto the elevator on the first floor.

She allegedly "appears to pull her pants down and back up toward the interior elevator buttons consistent with someone using the bathroom," according to the arrest warrant.

She then got off at the second floor and signed in at the public defender’s office.

After Jamison was identified, authorities arrested her on March 11.

It is unclear why she was at the courthouse to begin with. She now faces one misdemeanor charge of “health-safety-nuisance injurious to health.”
