TV Reporter Reports Story, Then Becomes Story, By Using Person’s Front Lawn As An Outhouse
This just in..when you’ve to go, you’ve just got to go. Even if you’re in the middle of reporting the news.
Jonathan Lowe, a reporter for KPHO in Arizona, was arrested this week after “allegedly defecating on a front lawn near the subject of his story’s home.”
The 33-year-old was seen by a neighbor as he picked up papers from the street before leaning against the wall of a house and relieving himself, according to a Goodyear police report obtained by his station.
An officer tasked with the job of tracking Lowe down said the suspect admitted to using the yard as an impromptu latrine.
Lowe had a legit reason for not curbing himself.
“I know what you want to talk to me about. I’ve been feeling very sick and I’ve been stuck in this van all day,” he said, according to the report.
There’s nothing worse than being out in the middle of nowhere and having to drop anchor. I feel his pain. But the woman who made the call claims if he just rang the doorbell, and asked to use her bathroom, she would have been cool with it.
Lowe now faces a $2500 fine and possible jail time. Ain’t that a shit.
