Florida Man Defiles Washing Machine At Soapy's Coin Laundromat, Cops Report

A Florida man was arrested Saturday morning for a vile incident inside Soapy’s Coin Laundromat, cops report.

According to an arrest affidavit, Michael Shannon, 57, entered the laundromat around 7:40 AM and proceeded to defecate on the floor of the St. Petersburg business.

Not content with that disgusting bit of criminality, Shannon then scooped up his own waste, an eyewitness told cops, and approached a Dexter commercial washing machine. Shannon was then seen “taking his own human waste” and “pressing it into the soap loading compartment” of the front loader.

When a St. Petersburg patrolman responded to a 911 call, Shannon was still in the laundromat (where he was arrested after reportedly confessing). Officer Steven Laurenzi reported that the "crime scene" was “still present upon police arrival.”

Shannon was charged with criminal mischief, a misdemeanor, and booked into the county jail (where he has frequently been lodged). Shannon’s lengthy rap sheet includes a state prison stretch for robbery.

Cops estimated damage to the washing machine at $475.
