Whether it’s an urgent whisper or a loud scream, when duty calls you find the nearest bathroom and release. That’s what homicide detective Alois Mabhunu did while working the Zimbabwe International Trade Fair several weeks ago.

The problem? That particular latrine was a VIP toilet reserved for Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe.

The following day, Mabhunu was arrested for his time spent in the VIP commode. According to Global Post, the detective was sentenced to 10 days in prison last week. He was also demoted from his job on the police staff.
