TV Reporter Arrested for Pooping in Someone's Front Yard During Work

A TV reporter got arrested for pooping in someone's front yard during work.

According to Vice, Goodyear, Arizona police told the Phoenix New Times that Jonathan Lowe of the Arizona's city's CBS 5 station "chose to use the front yard of a residence to relieve himself." After “an onlooker from across the street called it in to officers,” officers arrived on the scene and confronted Lowe, who “said he’d had to relieve himself, and they arrested him.” The reporter and a crew from the Phoenix affiliate were in town covering a story about a former Arizona State University football player who had allegedly sacrificed his family's poodle by burning it alive in the family's smoker. Lowe was charged with public urination or defecation, a Class 1 misdemeanor in Goodyear that carries with it up to six months in jail or a fine of up to $2,500. In an email from news director Dan Wilson on Friday afternoon, it was confirmed that Lowe no longer worked for the station. Moral of the story? Go to the bathroom before you leave the house.
