SEATTLE, June 3 (UPI) -- A Washington man was booked into the King County Jail for investigation of reckless burning after he allegedly was caught burning a bag of his own poop behind the Seattle Police Department's East Precinct.

The 31-year-old man was allegedly torching his feces in a paper bag on Sunday morning in an alley behind the precinct when officers went over to investigate. The blaze, which was about three feet away from trash bins stuffed with trash and paper, was quickly extinguished.

The man admitted to starting the fire and told police he had "taken a (poop) and was trying to burn the (poop) away," according to KOMO.

The man also claimed he was unaware it was illegal "to burn bags of feces behind police stations."

Police reported that a crew from the Seattle Fire Department "mercifully came and hosed down the alley."
