On March 10, Florida resident Carlos Adonis Ramos-Erazo, 24, was driving 75 mph in a 55 mph zone on U.S. Highway 27, but for what he claims was a good reason—desperately trying to get home to use the bathroom. And of course he got pulled over for speeding, because, hey, Murphy's Law.
Due to the nature of his problem, Ramos-Erazo apparently refused to get out of his car when the police officer asked him to and instead drove off, hitting the deputy's arm with his car in the process. The cops chased him to his home, and when he got out of his car and started racing towards his house, they shot him with a Taser gun. Into the back of the cop car he went, where he finally gave into the call of nature, and urinated and defecated in the cops' car. Hey, he warned them it was dire situation.
According to the Daily Commercial, Ramos-Erazo was charged with fleeing, battery on a law enforcement officer, aggravated assault with a motor vehicle on a law enforcement officer, and resisting with and without violence. He was finally allowed to go home to his own bathroom after posting his $18,000 bail.
It's an urban myth in the making, one that parents can tell their kids about for years to come, to make sure they use the toilet before a long trip. "You don't want mommy getting arrested just because you wouldn't use the potty like a big boy, now do you, Timmy?"
And for adults, let this be a lesson to you all—always, always, always use the bathroom before getting into your car. Or, you know, there are always diapers.
