TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (FTN) – A Terre Haute toddler is under fire for allegedly pooping at an elementary school playground.
Parents say the incident happened Saturday evening at Dixie Bee Elementary School on the city’s south side.
Two-year-old Alex Essex was accused of going to a different part of the playground, away from his parents to do the deed.
“It started with some pretty insane grunts. I snapped a photo for evidence,” Alex’s dad Chris said.
His parents say the toddler wanted to keep playing after the incident.
“No. He needed a diaper change. He was done. Angry…but done,” his mom, Ami told us.
Officials say playground pooping is frowned upon but it happens.
“He didn’t smear I…it was contained to a diaper. That’s the best you can hope for,” Sheriff Woody said.
Right now, no charges have been filed.
