A homeowner in Stockton, California, was reportedly stabbed for pooping on his neighbor's lawn.

Police were called to a home on April 3 after reports of two people being stabbed. When officers arrived at the home, they learned that a man had defecated on 18-year-old Lonale Shaw's lawn.

Shaw reportedly began chasing the man with a large knife after he pooped on his lawn. The man then fell and Shaw jumped on top of him and stabbed him in the head, KCRA reported.

At one point during the altercation, Shaw dropped the knife and the man picked it up. Shaw was then stabbed in the neck.

Shaw was arrested and charged with assault with a deadly weapon. The victim had scratches on his head from the attack.

In a similar incident in Texas, a man was arrested for an alleged stabbing that left his victim in critical condition, but the story made headlines because the man defecated in the back seat of the police car after his arrest.

Galveston, Texas, resident Jonathan Glenn was arrested in May of 2015 for the stabbing, and was involved in a brief foot chase with police before being arrested outside of the home where he was found.

When he was seated in the police vehicle, Glenn defecated in the back seat, put the feces in his mouth and spit it at the officers sitting in front of him. He then reportedly wrapped a seat belt around his neck in an attempt to choke himself, KTRK reported.

Officers cut the seat belt from his neck and took him to jail, where he was charged with aggravated assault and held in lieu of $100,000 bail. He was also reportedly wanted on a kidnapping warrant in another part of Texas. The stabbing victim was taken to the hospital in critical condition.
