Man Arrested While on Toilet

Posted By on Thu, Mar 15, 2012 at 10:05 AM


Meet Nicholas Ross. The 23-year-old was arrested Tuesday night by Sandusky police on a slew of charges. The Sandusky Register has the whole story, but the interesting nugget is simply this: he was arrested while sitting on the can.

Officers entered a bathroom in the home and found Ross sitting on the toilet. They ordered him off the receptacle, but he refused to move because he was defecating, the report said.

When Ross reached toward a pile of clothes, cops sprang on him. They grabbed his hands and used “reasonable force” to arrest him, damaging a sink in the process, the report said.

"It should be noted there was no sign of a bowel movement in the toilet,” the report said.

Yes, let it be noted.
