It’s said that you reap what you sow or, as an Ohio potty-tipper recently found out, you muck what you spew. Authorities state 18-year-old Bayley Toth was caught on camera tipping over a portable restroom and damaging other facets of Painesville Township (Ohio) Park in June. After pleading guilty to two counts of misdemeanor criminal mischief, Toth was sentenced in July by Municipal Judge Michael Cicconetti to 120 days in jail. However, Cicconetti chose to suspend the sentence in favor of more creative punishment.

“You act like an animal, you’re going to take care of animals,” Cicconetti tells Toth at the hearing, according to The News-Herald.

Toth was then sentenced to muck the stalls at the six-day Lake County Fair and clean up road apples at the fair parade in addition to other conditions set by Cicconetti.


A Florida man recently decided revenge is a dish best washed down with a wastewater slurry. In the hours of bar close on Aug. 1, Damian Simms walked into a 7-Eleven in St. Petersburg, Florida, and emptied a bucket of waste he had removed from a nearby portable restroom.

The reason for such sweet-smelling revenge? Police state they suspect it was because Simms had been kicked out of and barred from the same 7-Eleven in May. But we can’t help but wonder if that explanation is missing one key detail: The ban meant Simms missed out on free slushy day July 11 and maybe, angered about it, he decided to give 7-Eleven a free slurry slushy.

The unsanitary splash caused $28 in damage to merchandise; Simms was charged with trespass and criminal mischief. Read more about it here.


Need a compelling argument when presenting event organizers with portable urinals as a rental add-on? Look no further:

An inebriated Illinois man was one of many arrested at Wisconsin country music festival Country Thunder in late July. Unlike the scores of others, Brandon Weber was found relieving himself on the exterior of a portable restroom at the festival grounds. When approached by a Kenosha County sheriff’s deputy and asked for identification, Weber cold-cocked the deputy. He was booked on charges of battery of a police officer, resisting an officer and disorderly conduct.

Perhaps the presence of portable urinals (or more thereof) could’ve avoided this unfortunate, but foreseeable incident altogether? Catch all the details here.


Usually when you find yourself putting near a toilet, it’s the last hole at a gimmicky mini-golf course, but not so for Kevin Chappell at the PGA Championship in St. Louis. 

Chappell teed off on the fifth hole only to send the ball into a grouping of portable restrooms. The wayward ball rolled beneath a portable and continued to roll, only to find its flight to freedom blocked by a fence. 

After course officials determined the ball was stuck between the portable restroom and fence, Chappell was allowed to drop a ball in the nearby rough and continue playing. According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the No. 53-ranked golfer worldwide finished the tournament tied for 65th place.
