He also wet his pants. The clerk told the man he had soiled himself, but the man seemed surprised. He left the store. While the man was leaving, he continued to urinate on himself.
The man then climbed into a car parked at a nearby gas station. The driver of the car had pumped $14 in gas. The driver and the man left without paying for the gas.
