A Hernando County, Florida woman was arrested on Friday after police said she walked out of a Publix grocery store with numerous items but said she left the store because she pooped in her pants. Yup!

Paula Jay Ernst, 51, was seen by Publix employees selecting items and placing them in her cart while shopping at the Spring Hill-area store. Deputies said she took the items from her cart and placed them in a number of reusable shopping bags.

Deputies said Ernst told them she “did not mean to steal the items and walked out of the store because she had defecated in her pants.” She was arrested and charged with shoplifting.
