Man charged after child caught in public diarrhea backsplash


A gentleman dropped his pants in the street and defecated so explosively that diarrhea alighted upon a nearby child and earned the man a charge of outraging public decency.

In its unbylined story, The Central Somerset Gazette reports that Chas Cox, 25, recently appeared before magistrates to explain himself.

Though Cox pleaded not guilty, claiming he had no choice but to do what he did, prosecutor Christine Hart told the court that "the child was caught in the backsplash" and the defendant was remanded for trial.

The proceedings will resume August 7 in Yeovil, England.
