Police Question Man Over Freo War Memorial Poop Dump
A man who was filmed dumping a bucket of crap over a war memorial in Fremantle has been taken to hospital for a mental health assessment.
Police tracked the man down after footage of him tipping a bucket of his own faeces over memorial plaques at Monument Hill about 5.30pm on Sunday.
He was witnessed by a member of the public who recorded the incident.
When the man was confronted, he admitted dumping excrement on the memorial.
"That's my poo," he told the witness.
When asked why he was desecrating the memorial, he responded: “That’s my personal prerogative".
Police are yet to lay any charges.
