Jonathan Lowe mugshot

OK buddy, you got some serious ‘splainin’ to do.

We’re talking about Jonathan Lowe, an Arizona reporter who popped a squat and did his business in somebody’s front yard. Yes, he did!

TMZ is reporting that Lowe was working a story earlier this week in a Goodyear, AZ neighborhood when nature called. According to the police report … Lowe left his news van, grabbed a bunch of papers and walked across the street and “proceeded to defecate in the yard of the residence.”

Obviously some was observing Lowe doing his biz and called cops. When the officer showed up at Lowe’s news van .. the reporter said, “I know what you want to talk to me about.”

He said he was feeling sick and didn’t want to bother anyone. Big mistake because the homeowner says she would have been totally willing to let him use her bathroom.

For his troubles he got arrested for public defecation and now the world knows about it.
