this is news?
If its my child, public humiliation will stop em by using the oriental
punishment of bamboo em on the street so he won't do it again. Or we can have
walk and do worst than that. Same at the kids writing on the walls. Have him
stand on the corner of downtown with a signs say "I am a thief" for six months
bet he wont do it again.
That only happens in Utah.
news or not, its funny! good job, Ben
Faced with certain capture, the teen did the only scatological thing he could do
- he got a case of the runs.The police charged him with attempted
burglary and aggravated incontinence.
Actually, comments like that only happen in Utah.
I'm only sorry they are juveniles and we can't know their names.
This is so funny! To So Utah: you're right. No where else but in Utah can a
person mess their pants.
To bad they cannot release their names or a e-mail address.
Boys wll be boys,They come from good homes , let their parents deal with
To Anonymous: I hope you were being funny. Letting the parents deal with it is
what got the cars broken into in the first place. Parents are off the radar in
this case or the boys wouldn't have come up with the idea of such recreation in
the first place, or had a party of their peers to run to in the second place.
Wake up! They need to stay in Farmington Bay for a long time until they realize
that messing in one's pants isn't the worse to come from getting caught!!
Isn't this too much information? Why is the focus on the story scatalogical? I
know you're reporting on crime, but is it really importance to know that a
criminal or potential criminal had a bowel movement? Did he pick his nose as
well? Are there journalistic standards anymore?
Now that's fast police response time.
The comments on this site are proof that no one in Utah has a sense of humor.
We don't need names. Mug shots will do just fine.
Ditto. You're absolutely right. This reporter was just looking to poke fun at an
otherwise serious criminal situation. I guess he's bored with his job. Time to
I can guess that the reputation that he gets at school is not one that he wants
or that will go away soon. I can hear them talking now at his 25 year class
reunion. "Hey remember the time... lol. "Oh yeah, I remember you now, Aren't
you the one that ... lol.
"Boys will be boys?!" Wow. If breaking into cars and stealing other
people's stuff is just a normal and accepted part of boyhood, then I guess I
missed out in my youth. Who would say something like that? I guess
this person wouldn't mind then if I asked my 4 sons to help themselves to any
personal belongs in his (or her) cars and house then. If they get away with it,
then cool, we could use a new flat screen TV. And if they get
caught, well, boys will be boys so we'll just let these "good homes" deal with
it, because these "good homes" produced such good boys to begin with. Funny story though. Not only would most people consider this news, I wouldn't
be surprised if it makes national news and perhaps Leno as well. And
what's with the anti-Utah cheap shots? Tell us what state you are
from and I bet I can find stories just as ludicrous about your home state as
well, so why not give the hate a rest?
They may have come from good homes, and maybe the parents are doing everything
they can think of to guide these boys in the right direction. But to suggest
that this be left up to the parents? This isn't a victimless crime that won't
cost something to others, this is a serious crime that older people go to jail
for. Toilet-papering, doorbell-ditching, and other things like that you leave up
to the parents - to a point... but not this.
This has been the best story from DesNews. The headline alone made my day.
Please give us more stories like this!Also I want to know who the
kid was, so I can find him on facebook and totally make fun of him on his wall!
I have family there and read to keep up. I think the story is hilarious. Kudos
for printing it all. Crime doesn't pay...no, crime stinks!! And for
those of you who think this kind of thing only happens in Utah or would be
written up in Utah, try reading New York, Dutch or German news!!!
Well I guess your mom telling you to always wear clean underwear doesn't really
work if you..um...soil them. Seriously though, his friends know who he is and
I'm sure they won't let him forget about this. Hopefully this is a very good
I hope the kids thinks twice next time. His friends will not forget it for sure
for a long time. The person who says boys will be boys probably did some theft
when he was that age and turned his life around. The ones who took cheap shots
at Utah are not very well read. Such stories happen nationwide, not just Utah.
This story sounds like what happened in Lehi on Saturday night as I was wrapping
up for the night at 11 p.m. I heard a noise in my carport and opened the back
door to find two young men crouched behind my van. I yelled at them and they ran
into the street where an SUV was waiting for them. I called 911 and gave the
officer a description of the car, including the license plate. When he came back
after following up on my explanation, he said they had stopped a vehicle on Main
Street which matched the description and it was a group of kids playing hide and
go seek. I suggested that it might not be so much fun if someone with a gun had
caught them. Fun can be had in better ways.
No, car theives do no come from good homes. America is so twisted.Somewhere, during his upbringing, he got the message that he could do whatever
he wanted.Look around at Wal-Mart for 5 minutes with your eyes open,
and you'll see what I mean.Kids from good homes dont run from
The police are trained at handling messy situations like this one :)Throw them in jail for a little while so they can learn a lesson and grow up
to be good responsible adults.
Glad there weren't any fans around.
Cop should have "tased" the teenaged perp when the door opened. No harm done,
and the kid might not have messed his skivvies. I liked the public bamboo bit,
as well as the corner sign holding .. but, one or both parents should be
required to be there as well.
"Detectives were trying to determine if the teens were involved in a rash" -
Yes, a diaper rash.
That article gave me a good laugh!! I love how people brush off
illegal activity by saying "boys will be boys." Good home or not, their actions
have consequences: one of the possible consequences of breaking the law is
getting arrested. Clearly, something that they were not yet aware of, or
completely chose to ignore.
Big deal. Nothing's gonna' happen to him. With our super-sized, liberal,
turnstyle justice system he'll receive a slap on the wrist, a talking to from a
judge, an apology from Obama and a year of probation.
The Bros were just havin them some fun.Chill People. You were a teen
once. We all do this kinda stuff. It's our right of passage. Just Chill and be
cool wit it !!
It has been fascinating to read the comments that are so varied and polemic in
nature. Perhaps there should be a prize offered for the one who can guess the
liberal or conservative viewpoint. Naw....too easy.That kinda contest wouldn't
pass the smell test.
The kid might not have messed his pants if he were tazed?Apparently you
haven't heard a large number of police officers who volunteer to be tazed wear
rubber undies just in case.
I think that if someone commits a crime like this, if the public can hear about
what happened, then they should also know who committed the crime. Who cares if
he is a juvenile? Let people know who he is, what he looks like, so we can keep
an eye on him near our belongings. Stop coddling criminals.
Best. Story. Ever.
and he'll never live that one down. He will be remembered for all time how he
was so scared of the cops that he dropped off a load by surprise. I wonder if
they hosed him off at the detention center. I imagine it something like in the
first rambo. I hope so. How humiliating and it sounds like the kid needed
something like that.
The "only in Utah" comment is classic patonization designed to cover up personal
intolerance. There are many things that happen in Utah and elsewhere if you
merely open your eyes and drop your predjudice long enough to see. Humans are
human - everywhere.
For all of the people who say "boys will be boys" and to back off on them. YOU
are the reason I hate people. YOU are the reason these boys are stealing. I
was a teen boy and I never stole or broke into cars and came from a broken
family but a "good" home. Or as good as it could have been. So instead of the
parents holding the sign...why dont YOU go out their with them and hold the
sign. Since YOU seem to think this is ok then why dont YOU go to jail for them
instead of the boys. Which of course will never happen because they wont get
jail time becuase people like YOU wont allow that to happen. YOU are ruining
our country and I want you gone.
Reminds me of the chorus to an old 60s song, "doo run run, da doo run runnnn"He will forever be known as the doodoo burglar.
I'm sure the boys and their parents want to donwplay this. I'm also sure that
the boy who messed himself will be reminded by his peers of this long after the
rest of us have moved on with our lives. Karma works - sometimes.
The kid will be famous. He made the Drudge Report.
yeah, he's going to have a nickname now that he will never get rid of
These kids will be the butt of many jokes around school.
this story really stinks.
Re: Bob at 7:20 Either you are not a parent of teenagers or your living with
your head in a bucket. You should be careful what you say it may come back to
bite you. Lots of kids from good homes make stupid mistakes. When you're 16 your
peers have a lot more influence on you than your parents. This story is great
and it's nice to see these kids get caught and humiliated. Hopefully they will
be embarrassed enough by this incident that they will learn their lesson and
wise up. And to the moron that says "no one in Utah has a sense of humor" I was
laughing so hard I about fell out of my chair and I am a Utah native and LDS.
Hurray for this cop and the Centerville police, they may just have done the
thing that will turn these kids around.
Don't you mean "Doo doo run run" ????
It was all Bush's fault.
Now if I had a cop sitting in my car all night maybe I wouldn't have had three
cars stolen when I lived in D.C. Either that or we make sure we lock up people
that can't seem to follow the rules.
I think the value of this story is deterrence. Other teens will know there
could be a police officer in any car you try to burglarize. You could be
embarrassed for the rest of your life by some dumb thing that you do when you're
16. Life is long, think ahead kids.
This is better than the 'Trunk Monkey' for anti car theft!
Hahahahahaha... (repeat ad nauseum)
This could only happen in Utah....or California, Oklahoma, New York,
To those who are whining about why this story was even reported, realize that
now those who read this may realize that they too may "push a crayon" in
mid-crime, and it may too make national headlines. It would give me second
Cops asked the kid if he wanted to change pants now or later...kid said
Talk about your bad luck.
". . . We're gonna need back-up here. We have a Code Brown."
I blame this 0-conomy.
i love hearing about criminals being caught.
I really didn't need to know all the details.....wow!!!! Seriously, just report
on the crime not all the "messy" details......these kids don't need all that
KARMA WORKS...ALL THE TIME....HE'LL BE"
MR. POOTIE TOOTIE " FOR LIFE!!!
Good job, I suspect the police were able to track this boy by the little road
apples he left on the ground as he was running through the neighborhood. Give
him a fine, and make his community service cleaning the public toilets in the
local parks. His "friends" and school chums will give him punishment that will
last a lifetime. Imagine calling mom & dad and saying by the way please bring
me a clean set of spankies.Oh yes Jame T, I was a teen and we did stupid
things, but we never stole someones car or possessions.
Instant justice.I like that.
That's a word one doesn't hear every day.... Scatological, what a wonderful word
opportunity. Nice "warm" story. Made me feel.... Excuse me for a moment.
I had to shake my head at the article, but the comments are downright HILARIOUS!
Wit is alive and well and Utah.
Isn't Centerville also the home of the Carl's Jr. toilet shooter? It's turning
out to be a banner year for Centerville. Keep this up and you might get your
own series on FX...
I think the "Only in Utah" comment referred to the journalistic use of the
phrase "messed his pants" rather than the actual event itself.
Let's hope he's learned a lesson by all this.....
Surely you people must have had childhoods and can remember breaking a law or
two? But Breaking into cars, i think is a little more hardcore than
say....stealing a playboy, and as such maybe should not be written off as "oh
boys will be boys." Let the punishment fit the crime, make them repay any
damage done by making them get a job, community service, and spend a few days in
a real prison....to let them know where they can end up.Just a thought.PS. yes having a burgular crap his pants when caught "brown handed" is very
funny and I'm glad i herd about it.
Here is your next stupid lawsuit that we will have to pay for. This kids
parents will cry about how much emotional 'STRAIN' this kid was under that he
lost eSTRAINt of his bowels. It's really funny maybe this kid will remember
this the next time he thinks about stealing a car, or hopefully his friends will
remind him of the STINK he made from his last attempt. If his parents were any
kind of people they would keep his undershorts as a friendly reminder.
You have the right to remain Silent But Deadly.
...as it should be...
I don't care who you are, this is funny. If anything it gave my whole office a
good laugh on a pretty slow Tuesday morning.
What is this kid's name? Anybody know? It wasn't in the article. I say make
the kid walk around in ONLY a diaper for the next two years.
"I think that if someone commits a crime like this, if the public can hear about

you need to know who he is? You'll certainly smell him coming!
Funniest comment on here. I had to look up that word myself. Thanks for making
His name and picture should be all over the news.
Anyone else notice the part about him going to a friend's house where there's a
party going on at 1 in the morning? Hello parents, do you know where your kids
I know of someone this happened to. The police made him "sit in it" for hours
waiting on his dad to bail him out. They brought the guy clean pants or/ and
diapers for presents on his birthday for a few yrs.And- he never stole
You had to look up scatological?... Incontinence was one I had to look up. Nice
Night-vision goggles and didn't spot the policeman? Messing his pants when
caught? Methinks he wasn't ready for crime-time!
Some lawyer will sue the PD for causing the kid to crap his pants...
Well, what can you say? Poop happens...
he should have made the Fudge Report- dah dum dum...
I understand Michael Moore has purchased the movie rights; Perez Hilton has
signed on for the starring role. "Gosh, it's almost like I have a
twin. For me it will be like shooting a documentary of my entire life."
Uhh . . . Public Enemy Number 2?
The kid has been asked to star in the new Burger King commercial.
Well, this incident should preclude the kid from any future military service.
Out on a secret mission, he gets nervous and blows the cover.
How long before this is on Jay Leno's "Headlines"?
Yet another case of parents neglecting their toilet training responsibilities.
I heard the officer just followed the skid marks....
Just... awesome. Best news story I've read all year.
I bet his parents are liberals...
The cops this kid on the runs....
That was classic! Too funny!
This reminds me of Bill Cosby's joke aboout being scared witless - "First you
say it, then you do it"
Seriously?!? They put BEN on this story? What a waste...
I'd enter my own comment but I can't stop laughing!
I had a bad day...but not THAT bad. Too funny.
what's the latest poop on this story?
he won't be getting any "street cred" with that move!
I imagine the kid ran so fast he left skid marks.
Incontinence seminar on Thursday. Be there or be square.
I've been trying to come up with something poignant and witty to close out the
comments on this story, but after having been up since 3:30 this morning, well,
frankly, I'm pooped.
I fought the law, and the law made me crap my pants.
LOL too funny! stop it your killing me!
Police were looking for car theives, but they had nothing to go on... And
neither did the car theives.:-)
Boxers or Briefs? Depends :)
Forget Colace or Exlax...try Cops! That's right...Cops! Cops works instantly
providing the relief you need. Cops is safe too. Side effects are minor and
include incarceration, an appearance before a Judge and even a free ride in a
squad car. Dial 911 for Cops today.
This story is a bunch of crap
Are they going to charge the Police with excessive force...LOL
How about an update? Was there underage drinking going on at the house? Did
the police even investigate that? Or were they just interested in the poopy
NEW! Pampers for Pillagers.
RE: JamesT While growing up I never did this type of "right of passage." I did
get caught stealing from the local Sears when I was 6, but my mom took care of
that "problem." Guess what? I NEVER did it again. Would have been an ez case
for the K-9. Way to go Mr. Policeman!
it was quiet as can be, and I heard frrrrbsppslsshlshlslshshrrrt
Imagine sitting in the jail cell, waiting for a judge (the next day), while you
have pants full of poopy... HAha
Did this policeman happen to look like a bear?
Being a retired police officer - if I got a dime for every time this happened
when I came upon a burglary or car theft perp - I'd be wealthy.
This kid may have been saved from a life of crime by an irritable bowel. I would not have wanted to be that policeman who had to pat him down
before putting him under arrest or the jailer who had to account for his
personal belongings as he was being booked. The kid was charged with
two misdemeanours: carrying loaded pants without a permit and discharging a bum
within the city limits.
Christian Bale has signed to the play the role of the kid as super hero:
Blastman. Robin Williams is set to play his arch-nemesis Mr.
Buglarize? When did everything become acceptable to put 'ize' on the end of
something and call it a verb? Don't you mean 'steal'? Maybe it's just because
I'm British haha. Also - well done to the police for detaining the
kid - maybe teach him a lesson that crime isn't victimless and that even if he
thought it was just childish foolery it's certainly not smart.
I hope the off-duty officer called for backup, so that the perp could sit in the
back of someone else's car.
RE: Bob @ 7:20They come from good homes, bad homes, educated and
uneducated. My wife busted shoplifters that ranged from a homeless guy stealing
baby formula to feed his kid to an admirals wife for stealing shoes and many
other types in between including doctors, lawyers teachers and my favorite the
adult probation officer. It really is kids will be kids because kids
just do stupid things. It is the catching him after he crapped his pants that
made it funny and there fore "news" worthy.
I wish that all burglars were scared enough that they defecated in their pants.
Then we could smell them coming. It would have been an unpleasant experience for
the police who had to make the arrest and anyone who was in a holding cell with
the burglar. Perhaps his fright will make him feel more sorry for his act along
with the blow out.
1)Case the neighborhood2)Get supplies together3)Develop an alibi4)Know where the cops live5)Drop a deuce BEFORE heading out to work for
Kids from GOOD homes are influenced by kids who have no supervision. When
parents are not allowed to discipline their kids without the government
interfering and when kids are allowed to make their own decisions from birth
without parental interference what can you expect? People who think Utah is the
only state with this problem, have their head in the sand. When God is left out
of everything, the devil takes control. Wake up America!!! Lets take out Country
I just wondered if the kid(burglar) was still stressed and having problems. Oh
well, I think the thread will probably end soon.
What's the big Stink....... Oh.... right!
Car Thief: "Urban Mobile Community Organizer"...............ACORN and ACLU
lawyer on the way!
If that kid hasn't learned his lesson, he never will.
His Mom must be so proud! I'm not sure what's worse; having a Son who is a
burgler, or having a Son who Stinks at being a burgler?
If he was old enough to be scared at the appearance of an officer, then he was
old enough to know that he was deliberatly breaking the law. He may not be old
enough to understand all the consequences for his choices, but most adults do
not understand that either. Why do we insist that teenagers cannot
be held responsible for their choices, but we let them drive on public streets.
These young men should have the opportunity to learn honesty the hard way as
they are not quite bright enough to learn it the easy way.
I thought maybe I would talk to the police about a "cork program." I wonder if
it could of helped in this case?
LOL The cop should have put him in a cell with his crap pants on overnight.
