James V. Palmieri did both one day in March, according to Syracuse police.
Palmieri, 59, was suffering from severe diarrhea March 10 in the apartment he shared at 473 Pleasantview Ave. with David Utt, 62, according to a Syracuse police report.
"I asked him to use the bathroom fan so that it wouldn't smell up the house," Utt said in a written statement. The request upset Palmieri.
"Thanks for the sympathy," Palmieri said, according to Utt.
"It's common courtesy," Utt replied.
Palmieri then vowed to "crap all over the house, the bathroom and my car," Utt told police.
Palmieri got into his pajama bottoms, then went outside, Utt told police. Utt was suspicious because Palmieri doesn't smoke.
During the night, Utt discovered Palmieri had defecated "all over the floor in the bathroom and in the hallway near the bathroom," Utt's statement said.
"He clearly did this deliberately," Utt said.
The next morning, Utt opened the door to his 1997 Lincoln and saw "that Palmieri had, in fact, defecated over the back seat of his car, on the leather seats," a police report said.
Gotta love my hometown sometimes...
