Things got messy for a Madison County Sheriff's deputy after the woman she was trying to arrest "released her bowels" on her, according to authorities.
Law enforcement officers told Oxygen.com deputies first came in contact with Amanda Peters, 26, after receiving a call Friday that someone who was at a Kentucky residence with Peters had been involved in an auto theft.
When officers arrived on the scene, the suspect was gone but Peters and several other individuals were still at the residence.
Although she was not the person deputies were looking for, Peters had an active warrant out for her arrest for a separate auto theft in another county and provided officers with a fake name, police said.
"That's why she gave the fictitious name, she knew she had a warrant on her," Deputy Michael Stotts, public information officer for the Madison County Sheriff's Office told Oxygen.com.
After the deputies later discovered her true identity, they tracked her to down at another home.
The deputies received permission to search the home from the homeowner and discovered that Peters had locked herself in the bathroom, according to WKYT.
Once the female deputy was able to gain entry into the bathroom, Peters attempted to resist arrest by positioning herself on the toilet and then she "intentionally released her bowels in an upward motion and with purposeful direction," according to the arrest citation.
The human waste landed on the deputy's "face, arms and legs," according to the Lexington Herald-Leader.
Stotts told Oxygen.com during his 24 years in law enforcement, he had never seen anything like that happen before.
Despite her attempt to evade arrest, Peters was still taken into custody. In addition to the charges she was already facing, she's now been booked on charges of resisting arrest and third-degree assault after the bathroom stunt. She is also facing charges of identity theft, giving officers false information, and the auto theft charge that resulted in the initial warrant for her arrest.
Peters was booked at 2:37 a.m. on Saturday morning and still remains in the Kentucky jail, according to jail records from the Madison County Detention Center.
While Peters' alleged crime was all too real for the deputy involved, it comes at a time when fictitious fecal crimes are making headlines as well. The second season of Netflix's true-crime spoof "American Vandal," which was released Friday, centers on the poop-related misdeeds of the mysterious "Turd Burglar."
