Man Hides From Cops in Vat of Poo
Don't do it.
In Noble County, Indiana, Thomas Hovis Jr. decided that concealing himself in a vat of dog dukey was his best shot at freedom. Wanted on warrants that included methamphetamine and weapons charges, Hovis eluded a SWAT team and spent nearly an hour in the poop pit.
What's more, when pulled from the dog pile, Hovis resisted and was summarily stunned by a Taser before being taken into custody. Suffering from crap-induced hypothermia, Hovis was trembling so much that he required medical treatment. No word on whether that included a heartworm biscuit and testing for Parvo.
Hiding in a liquid manure pit may not seem like a good idea for everyone, which is probably as it should be. For Hovis, however, being in deep shit is all part of the game.
