Suspect Accused of Felonious Cow Dung Dumping

A homeless man in Florida allegedly emptied a bucket of cow feces on top of a victim’s head at a dairy farm.

Sometime between 1:30 pm and 2:30 pm at the Spoto’s Palm River Dairy in the suburban area of Crystal Springs, a man reportedly caused a stink resulting in his arrest.

The suspect, later identified as 47-year-old Jose Ramirez-Callejas, was at the dairy when he encountered an unidentified victim. Whether or not the suspect had a beef with the alleged victim was not reported, but Ramirez-Callejas reportedly employed cow droppings in an assault against the person.

As stated in the Pasco County arrest affidavit, the suspect collected the waste left by cows and placed it inside of a bucket before he “willfully and intentionally threw the manure on the victim against the victim’s will” by dumping it on their head.

When the police arrived at the scene of the reported battery by bovine defecation, they said they spoke with Ramirez-Callejas about what had taken place between himself and the alleged victim.

The suspect, who was listed as being born in Havana, Cuba is currently a legal citizen of the United States and a transient in Crystal Springs that works as a laborer. He allegedly told the officers that he did perform the unclean act against the other person, but no reason for the incident was reported.

The authorities saw remnants of the dung still clinging to the alleged victim in more than one place on their body.

Ramirez-Callejas, who has prior assault and battery convictions, was taken into custody and booked into the Pasco County Jail for suspicion of felony battery.
