CORVALLIS, Ore. – Police arrested a Corvallis man after he allegedly defecated inside a grocery store.
Police responded to the Safeway store on Southwest 3rd Street at about 10 p.m. Monday. Employees told police a man was walking around the inside of the store when he stopped in an aisle, lowered his shorts and defecated in the aisle. The man then allegedly continued walking around the store, tracking feces as he went, until employees made him to leave.
Police said the man left behind a bag of belongings which helped them identify the man as Tim Kielty, 54, of Corvallis.
Officers later located Kielty in the 300 block of SW 7th Street after receiving a report from a resident that a naked, intoxicated man was in his home. Police said Kielty entered the home through an unlocked door, and went inside where he defecated on the victim’s couch. When the victims demanded he leave, he ignored them and told them to bring him a towel.
Police said Kielty stayed inside the house until they arrived. He appeared to be under the influence of an inhalant, and told officers he liked to use “whip its” which are cylinders of nitrous oxide used in making whipped cream.
Kielty was taken into custody and transported to Good Samaritan Hospital for evaluation. He was later cited and released at the hospital.
Kielty was charged with two counts of criminal mischief in the second degree, one count of trespass in the first degree, and one count of disorderly conduct in the second degree.
