We all know divorce can be dirty -- in some cases, literally.
Gerald Desiderio, a 51-year-old bartender from Long Island, N.Y., was arrested Thursday after sending alimony checks to his ex-wife that were covered in feces, The New York Post reports.
His rattled ex-wife told officials that she moved out to Arizona in order to avoid her former spouse, who is now being charged with stalking, obstructing the mail and sending hazardous materials through the mail.
Authorities say Desiderio will appear in a federal court trial in Arizona at the end of month.
This isn't the first time an ex-wife has been on the receiving end of a dirty divorce move. In October, a Tennessee man threw an egg at his ex-wife's head while she was parked outside of his apartment waiting to pick up their son at the bus stop.

In May 2012, a recently divorced Superior, Wisc. woman held an "X-Husband Sale" on her front lawn where she gave away piles of her ex's belongings for free. She also flattened the tires on his SUV and spray-painted it with the word "cheater" and other invectives (click here for photos). Police had to tow away the vehicle after curious passersby caused traffic to slow to a halt in front of the house.
In July 2012, Elle Zober put her Beaverton, Ore. home up for sale with a sign on the front lawn that read: "Husband left us for a 22-year-old. House for sale by scorned, slightly bitter, newly single owner. Adulterers need not apply." Zober told local Fox affiliate KPTV that it was not an act of revenge. In fact, her seemingly laid-back husband knew about the sign and even approved its use. Luckily, the kooky marketing scheme paid off. According to Zober's website, an offer was put in on the house just 23 days after she listed it.
In July 2012, 35-year-old Denver man Scott Kramer was charged with felony arson after he reportedly set his estranged wife's wedding dress, wedding photos and skis ablaze. Prosecutors said he put her belongings in a garbage can and set them on fire near his home.
In June 2011, a divorced Michigan woman reportedly sent a letter coated in peanut butter to her ex-husband, whose current wife was allergic to peanuts. The ex-wife denied accusations that it was a deliberate attempt to make his new wife ill. She insisted, rather, that she did it to prevent the woman from reading the private contents of the letter.
In March 2012, 44-year-old Brit Darrell Plews set fire to his estranged wife's clothes, shoes, and designer purses after learning that she married a man she met on a solo trip to Africa months prior. To make matters worse, she was still legally married to Plews when she tied the knot with her new Gambian beau. In a fit of jealous rage, Plews burned her belongings in the garden of the house they once shared together in Wakefield, West Yorkshire. His punishment? A 12-month prison sentence, £5,000 owed to his wife in compensation and a two-year restraining order.
