Revenge can stink. One husband is accused of causing a “big stink” by pouring manure in his wife’s hot tub.
The 64-year-old man of Quebec, Canada is facing charges after he filled his wife’s hot tub and stairs with manure after being served with divorce papers.
On Tuesday morning, the Quebec Provincial Police were called to a house in the small town of Sainte-Emelie-de-l’Energie, located an hour and a half north of Montreal.
When police arrived to the scene, officers observed the man in a tractor dumping manure into the hot tub. There was also manure spilled at the woman’s front door. Police ordered the man to stop, but he took off in the tractor.
Officers followed him. “It was a low-speed chase, about 20 kilometers an hour,” Sgt. Gino Pare said. Police finally got the tractor to pull over about a mile and a half from the scene. The man resisted arrest and slightly injured one officer.
The suspect is a retired police officer, who had just received notice that his wife has begun divorce proceedings.
The 64-year-old is facing charges including mischief, hit-and-run, evading arrest, and assault on a police officer.
