COVINGTON, Ga., May 22 (UPI) -- A former University of Georgia instructor who worked as an executive at CNN was fined $180 for shoving dog feces into his Georgia neighbor's mailbox.

Covington police said a surveillance video recorded Bob Furnad stuffing the canine droppings into the mailbox owned by neighbors Benjamin Dameron and Ralph Miller, WGCL-TV, Atlanta, reported Tuesday.

Police said Furnad admitted to the incident and told officers he stuffed the feces into the mailbox as part of an ongoing dispute with his neighbors.

However, Dameron said he and Miller have "no clue" why Furnad would target them with the prank.

Police said Furnad was issued a $180 fine.
