A Florida man was arrested after allegedly defecating on a dead possum in the middle of rush-hour traffic, according to police.
Rudy Wilcox, 45, was picked up by Clearwater police on Wednesday around 5:30 p.m. after he was seen dropping-trow in the middle of the Belcher Road and Willow Tree Trail intersection then laying a log on the doubly-unfortunate possum “in full view of the motoring public.”
“The def. was observed defecating on a deceased possum with his pants lowered and his anal region exposed,” a Pinellas County affidavit obtained by The Smoking Gun read.
In addition to pooping on the possum within sight of motorists, he was also allegedly witnessed in action by a police officer with the Clearwater Police Department.
When questioned, Wilcox denied the accusations and said the officer who witnessed him “Doesn’t see straight,” according to the affidavit — but police weren’t having it.
“Physical evidence was viewed at the scene which corroborates the allegations alleged,” the affidavit noted.
Wilcox, who is homeless, was not under the influence of any intoxicants at the time of the alleged incident, according to the report.
He was charged with exposure of sexual organs and booked at the Pinellas County Jail.
