A Wisconsin English teacher has admitted to defecating on a building in a public park for more than two years, a report said.
Jeffrey Churchwell, 60, who will be retiring from Milton School District in January, allegedly fessed up to littering Natureland Park with poop since 2017, leaving behind his human waste and used toilet paper, according to The Janesville Gazette.
His run came to an end on Oct. 8 — the same day a county worker met with a sheriff’s deputy over a complaint about somebody repeatedly going to the bathroom on a park building up to five days a week, sometimes several times per day, the report said.
Churchwell has agreed to pay $5,705 in restitution to the Public Works Department, the agency tasked with cleaning up his feces. The longtime teacher is also on the hook for a $365 fine, the report said, citing reports from the Walworth County Sheriff’s Office.
During Churchwell’s reign, the parks department, on occasion, would have to pressure wash and repaint the building.
The day Churchwell was busted, the parks worker provided the deputy with surveillance footage showing the suspect in action. The photos also captured a gray Chevy Malibu and parts of its license plate.
Later that same day, the deputy saw the vehicle in question, being driven by Churchill, near the park and stopped him, the report said.
During questioning, Churchill allegedly admitted he knew why he was being stopped when the deputy indicated the department had photos of him.
It was because of “going to the bathroom,” the teacher said, later clarifying he did “No. 2” by the park building without a bathroom, the report said.
Churchill also admitted he sometimes pooped in the park on his way to work.
Initially, the suspect said he had been relieving himself in the park since the summer, but later said it has been going on for more than a year.
Churchwell also allegedly said he had done it at the park to be disrespectful and for the convenience.
The following day, he sent an email to sheriff’s deputy, apologizing for his misdeeds.
“I’m so disappointed in myself. I have the great opportunity to teach ‘Political Rhetoric.’ … In this class, I stress the importance of involved citizenship. And then there I am being a lousy citizen of Walworth County. My hypocrisy now sickens me,” he wrote.
The Wisconsin case is reminiscent of an occurrence out of New Jersey, when a school superintendent plead guilty to defecating under bleachers on Kenilworth Public Schools property.
Thomas Tramaglini, who has since left his post, was identified in May 2018 as the suspect responsible for the “human feces” found near Holmdel High School’s track field on a “daily basis.”
