SUSPECT RELEASED AFTER REFUSING TO POOP FOR 47 DAYS

Lamarr Chambers' stance on No. 2 ultimately made him No. 1

Lamarr Chambers fought the law, and the law came in No. 2—all over some No. 2. Some media outlets were calling it "Poo Watch".  Thankfully, it finnaly ended in the UK,  with the 24-year-old released on Monday after 47 days in custody in which he refused to have a bowel movement. 

He was arrested back in January when police suspected the alleged drug dealer had swallowed his stash— and decided to wait him out. It didn't work after seven court hearings in which police sought custody extensions, and even though Chambers ate and drank daily. Prosecutors decided to drop the charges—possession with intent to supply—against him due to "insufficient evidence," though he was then re-arrested by police on different drug charges—suspicion of being concerned in the supply.

Chambers was released on bail; then he was taken to a hospital and treated. It's believed to be the longest anyone in custody has gone without pooping, though the human body can go longer.

BABIES WHO LOOK LIKE THEIR DADS ARE HEALTHIER
