Richmond, California – A suspect defecated in the back of a police squad car then ate his own feces and spat it at the officers, according to the Richmond Police Department which reported the July 24 incident on their Facebook page.
Police were responding to a report of a man who was wanted on an arrest warrant. The police found the man, and he gave police a false name at first. Unfortunately for him, it turned out that there was an arrest warrant out for the fake name, too.
When the suspect realized the fake name was also wanted, he gave police his real name. The suspect was taken into custody for false impersonation.
When the suspect was taken to the police department, officers learned he was on parole. The suspect became uncooperative and combative with officers during the booking process. Police decided to drive the suspect to the county jail in another city.
The officers put the man in the back seat of the police car. When they reached the freeway, the suspect slipped his cuffed hands from the back to the front, undressed, and slipped his clothes through the window and onto the freeway.
“As soon as the officers realized the suspect was throwing his clothes out of the police car, they also realized he had just defecated, started to eat his feces and spat feces at the officers,” the police wrote on their Facebook page.
The officers immediately pulled over and called for assistance. More Richmond police officers arrived and put the suspect into a compliance safety device. Police also shut down the freeway to ensure the safety of the officers and the suspect.
Once the suspect was secured, he was taken to county jail. There were no injuries.
“We are proud of the officers' professionalism, composure and patience in this incident,” the Richmond Police Department wrote on Facebook.
The police didn’t release the name of the man.
