Jonathan Lowe

Jonathan Lowe, a reporter for KPHO in Phoenix, was arrested Monday after a woman filed a complaint against him for defecating in her yard while covering a breaking news story.

“Those people who called on me just wanted to start problems," Lowe told the police officer who tracked him down in his news van and arrested him.

The woman who filed the complaint said Lowe could have used her bathroom if he had simply knocked on the door and asked her.

NY Daily News -- The 33-year-old was seen by a neighbor as he picked up papers from the street before leaning against the wall of a house and relieving himself, according to a Goodyear police report obtained by his station.

An officer tasked with the job of tracking Lowe down said the suspect admitted to using the yard as an impromptu latrine.

“I know what you want to talk to me about. I’ve been feeling very sick and I’ve been stuck in this van all day,” he said, according to the report.

KPHO News director responded to an inquiry from the NY Daily News, saying Lowe was still an employee at the station. But a write-up on Thursday night referred to their bubble guts colleague as a “former KPHO/KTVK reporter.”

  • Di Ana

    I understand that he needed to go, but he could've at least cleaned up his own poop which he didn't. Make a d*mn effort to make the situation better which he didn't so the lady had every right to call the cops on his butt.

  • LibraGirlonly

    He should have went to a gas station or something.

  • IAmLegend

    This shyt right here lol. I'm guessing there was no public restroom nearby and he wasn't able to drive the truck anywhere. If thats the case then I understand. But what I don't get is why he couldn't dispose of the shyt after he was done. I mean come on dude.

    And dude def looks older than 33.

    $250. The manager had no problems deducting that from my balance since she SAW the pictures.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    He would have been pink slipped immediately. Major liability.

  • PettyEyezPrime

    I don't have Revolt? Is it worth it? Tickets are still available for tomorrow though.

  • Buttercup

    Oddly enough he wasn't. He was on the load to deliver my items. He tried to get away with not putting up Lil Butter's bunk beds since it's a "child's bed." I was like, "Don't play with me, Mario. I have it written in the contract here. You're trying to be lazy. Don't make me call Karlie (his manager)." They marked up the walls when delivering my items to the new place. I ended up only paying about half of what I should have paid when it was all said and done.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Revolt is just a part of my Comcast package. I only watch the channel occasionally, but I'll tune in to see that concert.

  • PettyEyezPrime

    I'm looking at tickets now. My friend I was supposed to go paid $230. Why I had to say no. He crazy

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    That's bananas. Thank Goodness you were on top of them. You spend way too much money moving to not get everything you pay for.

  • Hugga Bunch

    And he look like the type to take a big, mean, stank s****! Sue him and his a**!

  • Soda

    Wow. I remember working in a place that allowed public access to the restrooms. There was a certain group of people who came from a country with poor toilet operations and these people would wipe their butts then toss the tp in the garbage with the excrement in full view. And a certain group from another country would crouch on the toilet seats leaving shoeprints.

  • Trey

    Last time I saw this activity was in 1991 when a lil kid kid took a dump in his front yard and picked it up while we were playing football in the street...

  • IAmLegend

    No lol. But I understand that he thought he had nowhere else to go. Those reporters work under extreme pressure.

  • PettyEyezPrime

    I may need to call Verizon and ask for a "preview" of the channel in case I'm interested in buying ?

  • Buttercup

    Honey Dip is often embarrassed with the way I pitch fits and demand discounts when I receive sub-par service. I told him that I pay for a service and when it's done the way it should be, I have no problem paying full price.

    I told y'all about what I was going through with my apartment. The property manager told me I should call her boss to get a resolution. Ummmmm, if I'm going to do that, you're going to cut me a check for doing your job. My time is valuable.

  • Kim

    He was in a news van with the station's call letters on the van,he had ID.This occurred at 3:27 pm in the afternoon.This was not some homeless man dressed in rags knocking at a stranger's door at 10 pm.Why not say" I'm a reporter working in that news van,here is my ID ,may I use your bathroom"? Instead of taking a dump in her yard like a mentally ill person and then leaving it there.

  • Ni Ni

    His rusty end knew he had to go.
    Ain no job worth me not being able to relieve myself. If he didn't want to ask to use the restroom, he couldve left and went to a store or restaurant. Or run in the woods, but use it in somebody's yard, smh. Im shamed for him cause folks will never let him forget this.

  • Real (Miss)???

    Nasty as hell. Just couldn't resist taking a dump in this lady's yard smdh....

    Squatting is the natural way for humans to defecate. We are not designed to sit and defecate on a toilet. That's why we have so my gastrointestinal issues.

    That's what i was thinking. Had he left his post to relieve himself & missed the subject coming out the house...that would've been his azzz. But the front lawn? Dizzayum.

  • StoneColdLady

    I don't think he should have relieved himself in her yard however I don't give a flying catfish if he had on a three piece suit I wouldn't let him in to use my restroom...I barely want people whom I know to use it..ijs

    Oh wow. Gotta go, gotta go. He seems like a practiced impromptu shytta tho...paper just laying on the street eh?

  • Go Head With That

    Yep. The time he spent collecting leaves and now later packs to wipe with, he could have knocked on a door. Or hosed it down. Something

  • Go Head With That

  • SandrasNewFave

    Why not keep an empty Big Gulp cup in the van at all times? Number 1, number 2...combo, whatever. TP, sanitizer, all dat. Personally, I would have left but with how casual he was about the situation I wouldn't be surprised if all his top stories have a turd left behind. #nasty
