(NJ.COM) — Westbound 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.
