Ottawa police arrested a Colorado man Friday who fled after he was reported defecating in a Morris park.
According to Morris police, a public works employee spotted Kevin Kearns, 53, Denver, Colo., defecating in the open in the parking lot of Gould Park at about 7:30 a.m. Friday.

Kearns was arrested on complaints of aggravated battery, reckless driving and an ordinance violation for defecation in public. He was taken to Grundy County Jail.
