The Opossum Pooper

A bizarre and revolting incident was recorded in Clearwater, Florida when a man was allegedly seen defecating on a deceased opossum in the midst of rush hour traffic. The unprecedented incident, characterized by such an unusual police report statement, unfolded at about 5:30 PM.

“The defendant was observed defecating on a deceased opossum with his pants lowered and his anal region exposed.”



Who Was The Man?

As per the arrest affidavit, Rudy Wilcox, 45, was apparently observed by a law enforcement officer conducting the appalling act while motorists passed by.

After the officer read Wilcox his rights, he adamantly refuted the claims and instead countered that the officer had visual issues. Despite his denials, the affidavit points out that physical evidence found at the scene was consistent with the accusations made against Wilcox.

The Charges

For his disturbing act of indecency, Wilcox was subsequently apprehended on charges of exposing sexual organs, which is considered a misdemeanor in Florida.

Currently, he is incarcerated in the county jail on a $150 bond.

This particular case is distinguished by its strikingly atypical and repugnant nature. It surely adds an unsavory footnote in the history of American law enforcement and jurisprudence.
