The guard was taking a break when he allegedly saw the suspect taking a number two. After he confronted the man about his non-courteous crapping, a confrontation ensued and the two men "exchange(d) words," Seattle Pi reported.
Following the argument, the pooper took off and the guard sprinted after him and tackled him to the ground. When police arrived on the scene, they saw the guard detaining the man with a headlock.
According to police, "the man admitted to pooping on the ground, but claimed he had a bladder issue and that the guard attacked him without provocation."
Police opted to send him to Harborview Medical Center, but learned after checking his background that the man had lied about his name.
It's unclear if the guard was recognized for his sanitary service.
