‘Tis the season for Busted Coverage to move into the summer time activity arrest report realm. Football players are slowing down as training camp (allegedly) approaches. It’s time that we expand our Google News searches into the pool scene where there’s always an interesting character. Today we meet Jonathan Vertigans of Manchester, New Hampshire. He’s 27 and decided to go for a swim and drop a deuce is a pool. Why? No idea, just a good arrest story.
From the Nashua Telegraph:
Merrimack police said Jonathan Vertigans didn’t just take an ill-advised dip in someone else’s pool, but also left a disgusting gift behind for the owner.
Vertigans, 27, of 92 Walnut St., Manchester, turned himself in to Merrimack police Thursday on an arrest warrant for criminal mischief and criminal trespassing, police said.
Police were called to a home in the Crosswoods Path Development on June 14 after a homeowner described seeing a heavyset man in the backyard strip down to boxer shorts and jump in the swimming pool, police said.
The owner went outside after the man left and found that he had defecated in the pool, police said.
For those who want to give Jon a virtual high-five, we recommend his Facebook account. Also, kudos to the Telegraph reporter for that lede. Of course a guy wrote it. ‘Gift.’ Perfect use of the English language.
