(Scroll down for video) A mayor was seen throwing dog poop into his neighbor’s property, a video uploaded to the Internet showed.

After the video was made public, the mayor of a wealthy Los Angeles, California, suburb, apologized.

Dennis Kneier of San Marino, said that he should have disposed the poop in a proper manner instead of throwing it in the front yard. Kneier said that he and his wife were walking home from a park on Saturday night, when they found the bag of dog poop on the floor.

He picked it up it threw it into the yard. Homeowner Philip Lao, said he recognized Kneier on his home surveillance video and called police.

Officers photographed the bag. Lao said that he believed that the incident was a revenge for his past opposition to some of the mayor’s proposals, including plans for a dog park.

Kneier denied the allegations. Police said that they launched an investigation, but so far, no arrests have been made.
