A 26-year-old man, known as Wisconsin’s “serial toilet clogger” was found guilty of five counts of criminal damage to property after he repeatedly backed up women’s toilets at his workplace, causing them to overflow.
Police investigated a case of a clogged toilet back in March 2018 at Deland Community Center in Sheboygan and named a suspect, Patrick Beeman. Officers say about 10 other clogged toilet cases dating back to 2017 could be tied to him.
Beeman caused the toilets to clog by sticking plastic bottles in them. Court documents say that it cost about $200 each time a toilet needed to be repaired due to the clogging and overflows.
Beeman allegedly told police “he could not explain this behavior, but simply that he would get very strong urges to do this.”
"I need to make things right and pray for forgiveness every day," Beeman said in court Monday.
Beeman will serve a three-year probation period which includes 150 days in jail, pay $5,500 in restitution, complete 100 hours of community service and will not be allowed to possess or consume alcohol or any controlled substances.
