A Florida man whoâ€™d been evicted from a mobile home park picked a disgusting way of getting back at the community; he carried a five gallon bucket full of whatâ€™s been described as looking like â€œliquid feces/diarrhea,â€ and dumped it into the community pool.
54-year-old Thomas Lee Mason carried out his nauseating deed at the Embassy Mobile Home Park late Thursday night. Witnesses say that they saw him carrying the bucket and entering the area with â€œno legitimate businessâ€ there.
He was then seen â€œentering the pool area with the bucket and then leaving the area with the same bucket.â€
In the criminal complaint, authorities say heâ€™s been charged with â€œpouring an unknown dark colored substance that had the appearance of liquid feces/diarrheaâ€ into the pool.
In the same report, they say he â€œis angry over his eviction from the parkâ€ and is a suspect in â€œseveral criminal mischief events in the last week there.â€
Itâ€™s estimated that will take $300 to â€œdisinfect the pool by health code standards for the community to use again.â€
Mr. Masonâ€™s official charge is criminal mischief.
Heâ€™s now residing in the county jail in lieu of $150 bond.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, he has a criminal history. It includes priors for drunk driving, domestic battery, disorderly conduct, public intoxication, trespassing, robbery, aggravated assault, battery on a law enforcement officer, and violating probation.
