Saturday afternoon gave the sporting world one of its weirdest - and most disturbing - stories of the year. As the Memphis Tigers took on the Tennessee Volunteers, a man decided to use a very public place for something that should not be done in public.

According to a report from WREG Memphis, a security guard saw a man defecate behind a concession stand.

Here's more details from the report:

A security guard was making her way from a stairwell and saw the man, later identified as 46-year-old Royce Thomos Lodholz, squatting behind a concession stand. She went over to Lodholz and found that he had his pants off his body, exposing himself to several people walking nearby, and was defecating on the floor.

The man allegedly told offices that the restroom lines were taking to long so "he had to do what he had to do." Police charged the 46-year-old man with indecent exposure.

We've all waited in a line during a sporting game. Sure, sometimes they take a little too long, but there are better alternatives to public defecation.

Meanwhile, Tennessee took down Memphis by a final score of 102-92.
