RCMP have a crappy job sometimes

It's a dirty job, but someone has to do it.

It’s a dirty job, but someone has to do it.Comox Valley RCMP responded to call just before midnight Aug. 24 to a report of a topless female running along Veteran’s Memorial Parkway in Courtenay.When police arrived on scene they found an intoxicated man stumbling along the roadway wearing only shorts. The man was arrested for being drunk in public and was to be released once sober.However, once in cells, the man proceeded to defecate and smear the feces throughout his cell and into the hallway area.Although no permanent damage was done to the Comox Valley detachment, much discomfort was felt by the employees as they had to spend hours ensuring the area was thoroughly cleaned. Police confirm the man has been charged with mischief and will need to attend court to deal with his actions. — Comox Valley RCMP
