DETROIT (AP) — A security video appearing to show a taxi driver defecating in public on Detroit’s west side is being met with reactions of disgust.

Garrett Morse tells WDIV-TV he was troubleshooting with a video surveillance client when he saw the recording taken about 6 a.m. Sunday. Morse describes the scene, saying the driver “pulls into the alley, hops out of his van and proceeds to use the bathroom.”

In the video, the driver stops at the Keep It Clean car wash and gets out with toilet paper in hand.

Detroit City Councilman George Cushingberry says he’s “abhorred” and “we can’t afford to have that kind of activity.”

The cab company says it’ll work with police on an investigation, if needed. It says drivers are contractors that own their own vehicles.
