Toilet holds up traffic at busy intersection

Police in Chickasha, Oklahoma, say they get a lot of calls into their department but never one quite like this. A concerned citizen called the law about a toilet at a busy intersection.

It is one of the busiest ones in town which is probably why somebody carefully placed it in the middle of a median. Nobody knows why the toilet was placed there or where it came from but police said they believe it was definitely a very deliberate act.

“Normally people will discard trash on the side of the road but this is a porcelain toilet,” Chickasha Police Major Elip Moore said. “If they had thrown it from a vehicle, it would have busted. Whoever placed it there deliberately placed it there with care.”

Police said they had the public works department remove the toilet from the intersection. While it is a crime to litter, they said finding the person who did it does not exactly rank at the top of their priority list.
