You’ve heard of the infamous ice cream licker, but what about the potato-pee-person of Pennsylvania?
Last week, a West Mifflin Walmart employee was miffed after they “noticed urine on the floor near the potatoes in the produce area,” according to the West Mifflin Police Department.
The store’s loss prevention officer then pulled up video which allegedly revealed a woman urinating in the potato bins of the store on Wednesday.
The police department released photos of the peeing culprit in hopes that someone in the community would ID her.
The move worked, and by Tuesday, someone was in custody.
A woman named Grace Brown “along with her attorney came to the station where she identified herself as the person urinating on the potatoes,” according to police. Brown did so after allegedly seeing surveillance photos of herself on television, WTAE in Pittsburgh reports.
The motive for the alleged incident is not clear, although her charges indicate she may have allegedly been drunk. Brown, 20, is expected to be charged with criminal mischief, open lewdness, disorderly conduct and public drunkenness.
Her lawyer said she made a mistake.
"Clearly, she doesn't want to see herself portrayed in that light. She's a young lady that has a full-time job. She's a high school graduate. She's working to make her life better," Brown's attorney, Casey White said, Pittsburgh Action News reports.
The urine-soaked potatoes have been tossed.
“This type of obscene conduct is outrageous, and we immediately disposed of the affected products and sanitized the area to ensure its cleanliness and safety for our customers,” Walmart said in a statement.
The potato peeing incident comes on the heels of the arrest earlier this month of a woman who allegedly licked ice iccream inside a Texas Walmart. That sparked a viral video and resulted in all half-gallons of Blue Bell’s “Tin Roof” getting tossed from that store.
