SANTA CLARITA (CBSLA) — An unidentified woman was caught on camera defecating in front of a Santa Clarita storefront in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

“When I looked at the video, surprise surprise,” Nuri March, the business owner whose camera caught the act, said. “A cute little lady in her minidress, in a miniskirt with a Mercedes.”

The video shows the woman getting out of her vehicle, defecating in front of the vehicle and then driving off.

“I was like, this was not what I expected, but being 1:20 a.m., maybe she partied a little too hard and couldn’t make it home,” March said.

And March says this isn’t the first time this has happened. He said the last time it happened, he caught a man doing the same thing.

“I don’t know. I can’t say I’m mad at her,” he said. “Wasn’t fun cleaning up.”

And while sheriff’s deputies were called out to the scene, March said he decided not to file a police report or file charges against the woman.

According to law enforcement, defecating in public is a misdemeanor that carries a sentence of up to one year in jail and a fine of up to $10,000.

March just hopes this woman and others think twice before relieving themselves in public.

“Look out for cameras,” he said. “They’re everywhere these days.”

    so the homeless and drug addicts defecate all the time on the street and yes openly do drugs – shooting up and smoking crack, but you decided to shame this woman. Nice. why don’t you have a entire area devoted to open heavy drug use and using common ground as your bathroom and let us all send in the pictures.

      “but you decided to shame this woman” – what you call ‘shame’ I call ‘holding responsible.’ I’ve had to do something similar a few times in my life, but I always carry extra plastic shopping bags and go onto/into that, then take it with me. Or I’ve gone in my pants – knowing I’d have a mess to clean up later. To just ‘dump and go’? Knowing later others will be using that area? Yeah, that’s shame-worthy imho.
