When you gotta’ go, you gotta’ go — even if it is in the shoe department at a Meijer store.
That’s the situation Anthony Bowman, 38, of Deerfield Township, told police he found himself in when he wasn’t able to locate the restrooms in the Deerfield Township store.
Law enforcement officials weren’t so understanding — a Warren County grand jury Friday indicted Bowman on charges of public indecency, criminal damaging and possession of heroin.
The incident occurred on Feb. 22, when store loss prevention officials notified the Warren County Sheriff’s Office they observed a man urinating on shoe racks in the store.
When police confronted Bowman, he denied the incident occurring, but later admitted it after told it was captured on store security video, according to the police report.
Police say Bowman damaged seven boxes of shoes valued at around $450.
He faces up to 22 months in jail and a $6,000 fine if convicted of the charges.
