Steven Stanulonis has become Facebook-infamous after a video that showed him defecating on a Colorado Springs porch was shared on the social-media site and quickly led to an unhappy visit from police.
Seldom has choosing our latest Schmuck of the Week been easier.
On Wednesday morning, May 3, Facebook user Evan Steadman posted the clip in question along with the following note: "If anyone knows who this is they took a shit in front of my house after looking thru cars let me know."
The Steadman video, which is not safe for work (or anywhere, frankly), shows a man approaching a townhouse complex on the 6100 block of Colony Circle in the Springs, dropping trou and doing his business. But KKTV obtained a longer version that it censored for broadcast. The additional footage shows him ranting and flipping off the residence.
