EMBARRASSING CRIMINAL OF THE DAY:
(Trentonian.com) An alleged crack addict with nervous bowels was charged yesterday in a string of burglaries, in several cases leaving feces in the homes he robbed, according to police.

William "Billy" Woodard, 39, of Bradford Court in Bordentown Township, was arraigned before Hamilton Municipal Court Judge Roger Haley on four counts of burglary, two counts of theft and one for resisting arrest. He was incarcerated in the county jail after the judge set bail at $185,000.

Mercer County Prosecutor Joseph Bocchini said Woodard, suspected in more than 50 burglaries in the Trenton area since November of last year, will be charged with "approximately 35 burglaries" in Hamilton, Lawrence Township, Lawrence and Bordentown in the days ahead.

The prosecutor said Woodard defecated in four victims’ homes, including those of two policemen, but said the suspect didn’t target cops.

"He defecated in at least four residences," Bocchini said. "We’re certain it’s probably more from nerves than anything else, because when he was taken into custody, he also defecated, and that was in his pants."
No, no I'm pretty sure I'm laughing *at* you, not *with* you.
