Man Hasn’t Pooed For 26 Days In Protest Against Arrest
A man who hasn’t pooed in protest over his arrest, has reached day 26, police have revealed.
Lamarr Chambers has now gone almost four weeks without going to the toilet after Essex Police arrested and detained him on suspected drug dealing offences.
According to reports, the longest an inmate has gone without using the toilet is 23 days, so Chambers has broken the British record by three days so far.
Police officers believe he concealed drugs before his arrest and so they have been waiting for him to finally go to the bathroom in order to officially charge him.
The force even started a hashtag ‘PooWatch’ to keep the public updated on the situation.
Here’s how it’s all played out so far:
January 18: Male is still refusing to pass objects, still doesn’t believe police have this power to hold him until he produces, male has been charged with possession with intent to supply class A drugs x2 and on way to court for a 7 day lay down application
Later on: Chelmsford magistrates court have issued a 190 hour detention warrant for the male to pass the items concealed, if they are not passed during that time we will apply for more time #comeon #delayingtheinevitable
Jan 19: Male has now been in police custody for the past 50hrs and will remain until he passes said items, he has refused food for all this time and will not accept that he will not be released until he releases #howlongcanyougo #mustbehungry

Some followers have commented on the man’s health, but officers have assured the public he is being checked over by medical staff who are assessing him.
They also said it’s ‘HIS choice not to poo’.
The guy must be feeling pretty rough to be fair.
