Police arrested a man Feb. 10 for allegedly urinating in a Tennessee Walmart while trying to stuff a package of frozen trout into his trousers.
An employee reported David Wylie, 56, to an officer after he was seen urinating on the sales floor near the alcoholic beverages before putting the fish down his pants, according to the arrest warrant obtained by the Clarksville Leaf Chronicle.
The man then reportedly attempted to leave the store without paying for the trout and other items he picked up, altogether valued at $130.
When police confronted Wylie, he said he had been drinking alcohol and was not worried about his actions, dismissing them as just misdemeanors.
"Wylie's statements as well as the detection of alcohol led me to believe that the offenses were likely to continue," the officer wrote in the warrant.
Wylie was then arrested and charged with shoplifting, vandalism, indecent exposure and public intoxication. He is in jail on a $2,000 bond.
This is not the first time police have arrested an individual for using a Walmart floor as a toilet
Tomas Arenas, also 56, was stopped by a loss prevention manager in 2012 after stealing alcohol from the store, according to Death and Taxes.
Arenas began yelling at the manager and then proceeded to take off his pants and defecate on the floor in front of customers.
He was arrested for shoplifting, defecating, indecent exposure, loitering and disorderly conduct.
Meanwhile, a man in Sweden in 2010 also defecated on a store floor when the cashier refused to let him use the bathroom. He proceeded to steal some candy.
Even airplanes are not immune. A man on a flight to New York reportedly defecated on a beverage cart after a flight attendant said he could not drink any more alcohol.
“This seems to happen on a fairly regular basis — people expressing their anger from the wrong end,” Death and Taxes writer Carmel Lobello noted. “We obviously can’t say why — each offender probably has his or her own reasons — but we can say that we’re glad we work on the Internet.”
