Homeless Man Plays with Poop on Valley Lightrail

June 4th, 2009 by admin

PHOENIX – A light rail train was taken out of service Tuesday morning after someone left a nasty surprise inside.

Around 8 a.m., a train was stopped for cleaning after a man smudged feces in the interior of the train. Police were told the man on the train was flicking and playing with feces.

The light rail operator was notified and quickly took the train out of service.

“It is a biohazard, and we have protocol for how we handle a situation like this,” says Hillary Foose. Those protocols include disinfecting the train.

It was discovered near the 38th St and Washington station.

The man, who police say is homeless, was questioned at the station and released. Police plan to review surveillance video on the train.
