A disturbing footage has surfaced on the internet which shows an unidentified Boston marathon runner apparently pooping on a stranger’s lawn. The incident was captured on a doorbell camera dated April 17.
The video shows the marathon runner squatting down in the corner of someone’s front lawn in order to relieve themselves during the 26.2-mile race. However, the runner was interrupted by a man who walked into the yard and appeared to have an awkward exchange with the marathon runner.

According to New York Post, more than 30,000 marathoners partook in the annual run from Hopkinton, Mass. to downtown Boston.
