NJ.comWestbound lanes at the Holland Tunnel were briefly closed to traffic last night after a California man exited a vehicle and defecated inside a tunnel booth, officials said. Kevin Nam, 21, was charged with trespassing after Port Authority police saw him exit a car that was driving in the north tunnel and walk inside a tunnel booth where Nam was caught defecating, Port Authority spokesperson Steven Coleman said. The incident occurred around 10 p.m. and forced the closure of the north tunnel for 5 to 10 minutes as police conducted a “standardized security sweep,” Coleman said. Nam was in the car with three other passengers when he told the driver he felt sick, Coleman said, he then told the driver to let him out as they were driving in the tunnel. A security camera observed Nam walking in the tunnel to a booth where he was later apprehended by police.

Absolutely anybody who’s ever been inside a tunnel stuck in traffic has had this nightmare. Can’t tell you how many times I’ve realized I’m locked into Lincoln Tunnel traffic, no turning back, and the first thing I do is think about whether or not I gotta take a shit. Nowhere to stop. Nowhere to go really. No telling how long its gonna take to emerge on the other end. Your imagination runs wild and you start to think about whats gonna happen if you shit your pants and have to spend the next 45 minutes getting through tunnel traffic with a shit filled car. If you really do reach that breaking point,and you’re able to spot some sort of booth, you absolutely have to shit in there. Any rational person is shitting inside that booth. I’ll take the trespassing charges. I’ll risk being mistaken for a terrorist. All of that pales in comparison to the feeling of an ass full of shit and a tunnel full of traffic.
