A South Carolina man faces up to 13 years in prison if convicted on charges that he sprayed a foul-smelling liquid, believed to be the stool, a supermarket production in October.
Pau Hang, 41, pleaded not guilty to the federal charges Wednesday following his arrest Oct. 15, WNCN-TV reported.
A store manager saw him spraying fluid with a fecal odor to the products and other items on a Harris Teeter store in Charleston, authorities said.
The police said Hanging was a “disgruntled contractor” for the shop who was angry because he thought that the business owed him money.
A federal grand jury indicted Hang, earlier this month, on charges of attempting to tamper with a consumer product and the restrictions are a product to cause commercial damage.
