A woman who was accused of urinating on potatoes at a Pennsylvania Walmart last week has turned herself in.

20-year-old Grace Brown arrived at the station with her attorney on Tuesday and “identified herself as the person urinating on the potatoes” after the CCTV images of her were released by police.

The disturbing incident occurred late July 24 into early July 25 after a store employee noticed a pool of urine in the produce area near the spuds and called for officers. After cycling back through camera footage, he spotted a female “urinating in the potato bins” at 10:10 p.m. the night before.

Brown was charged with Criminal Mischief, Open Lewdness, Disorderly Conduct and Public Drunkenness, per District Attorney recommendations. They did not, however, list tampering with a consumer product, which is a second-degree felony.

“Clearly, she doesn’t want to see herself portrayed in that light,” her attorney, Casey White told Pittsburgh’s Action News 4, emphasizing that she is a young hard worker who has a full-time job and graduated from high school.

“She’s embarrassed. She’s a young woman that made a mistake, but she’s going to address whatever issues she may or may not have. She’s going to move forward.”
