This really puts the “gross” in grocery. A Virginia man is facing charges after he allegedly grabbed produce at a Manassas store, pulled down his pants and rubbed the food items on his bare buttocks. Several pallets of produce were allegedly tainted by the suspect’s butt. The suspect then allegedly put the tainted produce back on the shelves, according to The Associated Press. Michael Dwayne Johnson, 27, was arrested Saturday afternoon at the Giant Food Store and charged with two misdemeanors: indecent exposure and destruction of property. Johnson was arrested inside the supermarket after an employee called 911 about destruction of property.
Johnson was allegedly seen “picking up produce, pulling down his pants, rubbing the produce on his buttocks, and replacing the produce back on the shelf,” according to a police report obtained by The Smoking Gun. According to the police report, store employees had to destroy several pallets of produce presumedly tainted by Johnson’s bare heinie. Although a police spokesperson told NBC Washington she did not know what type of produce Johnson allegedly defiled, a police report mentioned it was fruit. Authorities say they haven’t determined a possible motive and Giant Food Stores was unable to be reached for comment. Johnson was later released on his own recognizance.
