In an attempt to conceal evidence, a man held in his bowel movements for 37 days.
According to the BBC, police believe Lamarr Chambers swallowed drugs during a chase with the cops in Essex, London, on January 17. On February 23, the outlet wrote that Chambers had not used the bathroom in 37 days in what officials believe is an attempt to conceal evidence.
The Independent reported that Essex Police department provided updates about Chambers’ bowel movements on Twitter with the #poopwatch hashtag, however no tweets could be found. The prisoner has been under constant watch by two police officers in his cell, the paper wrote.
An Essex Police department spokesperson told Newsweek he could not verify if Chambers finally used the restroom, how many days passed since he last pooped or provide any comment on the situation.
Although, there is no official word on when Chambers last used the toilet, going weeks without pooping is dangerous, according to Dr. Robert Glatter, an emergency physician at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York.
He explains that the defendant is likely suffering from fecal impaction, which is when hard stool is stuck inside the rectum. This could cause a bowel obstruction, or blockage, that prevents food and liquids from moving through the intestine. Chances are, Chambers could get physically ill.
