Police in Maryland, USA are on the hunt for a prankster who smeared glue on a toilet seat in the bathroom of a Wal-Mart store.
The prank left a man stuck to the toilet in the store in Elkton, with officials refusing to reveal just how long he was stuck there before help was called.
Local police said that emergency workers first removed the seat from the toilet and took the man to the hospital with it still attached, and then removed it whilst the man was in the A&E department.
It is believed that the incident was a random prank for April Fools’ Day, but police say that they are treating it as a second-degree assault case.

The games are installed in four locations across the city and allow users to test their accuracy as they answer the call of nature.
The Toylet uses pressure sensors attached to eye-level LCD screen, as includes 4 games. One of the games includes clearing graffiti off the screen, and another allows users to compete against each other, luckily not at the same time, by challenging them to produce a more powerful stream than the last visitor.
If users are particularly proud of their score, they can download it onto a USB stick, and between games the Toylet displays adverts.
Sega have said that there are no plans to market the games commercially, and if you want to find out more you can visit the Toylet website. However, you do need to be able to speak Japanese to understand it!No Comments
Lake District Council are looking to sell their public toilets to private firms in a bid to save cash.
South Lakeland Council is considering introducing charges for the 39 toilets that are currently in operation.
The annual cost of the toilets is £790,000 which the council cannot afford to keep. They are currently in areas such as Windermere, Ulverston and Kendal.
A recent public consultation saw more than 70 per cent of those questioned back the introduction of charges.
A council spokesman said, “We currently have 39 public toilets, which cost £790,000 every year to run, or over £16 for every househould in the district funded entirely from council tax.
“Costs have spiralled upwards in recent years due to increased charges for water, electricity and fuel.
“The council receives no funding from the government to keep public toilets cleaned, maintained and open for use in one of Britain’s most visited tourist areas, which significantly drives up the costs associated with the loss-making service.
“A report has also shown that some toilets are in urgent need of major upgrades to meet modern standards.”
The council are due to make an informal decision later on this year.No Comments
