Parking officers take a lot of crap, but this incident really stinks.
A New Jersey woman got into some doo-doo after flinging feces in the face of a Hoboken, N.J. parking utility officer that had written her a ticket earlier in the week.
According to the Jersey Journal, the officer was leaving work at the Hoboken Parking Utility offices at City Hall on Sept. 11 when she was accosted by the angry woman. After the officer told the woman she was going to get her supervisor, she says the woman threw a substance in her face, which was later confirmed to be feces. The species of origin is unclear.
"The attacker told cops she had gotten upset about a parking ticket because she thought she was being targeted because she is Latina," the newspaper reported.
The 39-year-old woman initially denied she had thrown the poop at the officer, but later allegedly admitted it, telling police that she'd scooped the poop off the ground with a paper cup. She was issued a summons for disorderly conduct.
Strangely, this isn't the first time this month that someone has made the news for tossing poop. Earlier in September, Chicago police arrested a homeless man after he allegedly threw bottles of urine and feces at officers who tried to move him.
In June, a Texas woman was charged with aggravated assault after allegedly throwing dog poop at a man who she claimed hadn't been cleaning up after his pet.
