Ronald Strong Gets Week In Jail For Pooping Pants


Everybody poops.

But not everybody does it in their pants, inside a federal courthouse and then gets jail time for it.

That was the case for 50-year-old Ronald Strong who, according to a recent Salon article accidentally defecated in his pants, went to clean it up and left such a terrible mess in the bathroom that the 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals gave the Maine man a week in jail.

In a graphic 57-page document detailing Strong’s crappy day, a distinguished judge included “vivid comparisons to spaghetti with meat sauce and chunky peanut butter.”

Things could be worse, like a Florida man who punched a cop and pooped his pants.

Or another Florida fellow who shot up a public dock, then pooped himself.
