A 27-year-old Florida man fled the scene of an auto accident but authorities said the dash was due to bowel irritability, instead of a lack of accountability.

The TC Palm reported on Thursday police in Port St. Lucie said Carlos Baca left the area after his pickup truck backed into another vehicle on May 6. But only briefly.

Baca “reported he left briefly because he had ‘bad’ Chinese food and did not want to defecate in his pants,” said the authorities’ arrest affadavit (PDF).

Baca subsequently apologized for departing the scene, and was also found to be driving without a license. He apologized for that, as well, but was still arrested on misdemeanor charges.
