Man jailed over unwelcome toilet break

GIRARD, Pa. (AP) - August 26, 2011

Police in Girard say 24-year-old Nathan Wingerter broke into his ex-wife's home on Aug. 1, threw her photo identification cards into the toilet and then defecated on them. Police say the woman walked in to find Wingerter on the toilet.

A local newspaper reports that police issued a warrant for Wingerter and arrested him days later in Painesville, Ohio. He was returned to Erie County to face charges of burglary and criminal mischief on Wednesday.

Online court records don't list an attorney for Wingerter. Erie County Prison officials say he remained incarcerated there on Friday.
