Ronald Strong, 50, was sentenced to a week behind bars after he left feces smeared on the floor and up the wall of a federal courthouse’s bathroom.
Ronald Strong left such a mess in a federal courthouse’s bathroom — with feces smeared on the floor and up the wall — that a judge locked him up for one week as punishment.
The Salon reports that Strong arrived at court for an unrelated civil case when, as he was being screened by security, poop started leaking out of his clothes.
The 50-year-old, who had a heart condition requiring medication that could have affected his bowel control, was escorted to the restroom.
He took his clothes off, tried to clean himself up and then got redressed. He attended his hearing and left the building.
But 15 minutes later a cop entered the room.
The cleaning lady tasked with dealing with the scene later claimed that “75 percent of the floor was covered in feces” which was “smeared more than 2 feet up on the walls.”
It was “on the paper towel and toilet paper dispensers, on the toilet paper itself, and on part of the toilet seat and the left side of the toilet bowl,” she added.
Strong was hauled back into court and sentenced for willfully damaging and creating a hazard and nuisance in the federal courthouse in Portland.
The Salon adds that a graphic 57-page court document included pictures and “vivid comparisons to spaghetti with meat sauce and chunky peanut butter.”
Strong had his appeal of the conviction thrown out by the 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals last week. It is not known whether he will appeal in front of the Supreme Court.
