Convenient? Sure. But we will never look at the self-checkout scanner the same way again after an Ohio man admitted to defecating on a UScan-it terminal at a Kroger grocery.

During a Municipal Court appearance last week, the 23-year-old admitted he entered a Cincinnati-area Kroger near his home, and “stripped naked” in front of an employee and then proceeded to do his bathroom business on the self-checkout scanner, The Smoking Gun reports.

Police said he smelled of alcohol, had trouble keeping his balance, and his speech was slurred.

He was convicted on charges of public indecency and disorderly conduct, and was sentenced to 30 days in jail. That sentence was suspended for now, and he’ll instead be on probation for two years, and will have to pay about $400 in fines and court costs.

He’s also been ordered to stay away from Kroger, because no one wants to see that happen again.
