An Iowa City man faces two charges after he allegedly defecated on the floor of a local pharmacy last week.

Robert E. Lee, 57, 1903 H St., was charged with fifth-degree criminal mischief and public intoxication.

According to police reports, Lee entered CVS Pharmacy, 2425 Muscatine Ave. at about 4:15 p.m. on Nov. 6, walked to the front area of the store, lifted up his shirt, dropped his pants, and defecated on the floor.

Lee then walked out of the store, police said.

Reports show Lee smelled of alcohol, had very slurred speech, and had a blood-alcohol content of 0.24.

A store manager told police it cost under $200 to clean up the feces, police said.

Fifth-degree criminal mischief and public intoxication are both simple misdemeanors.
