The 26-year-old Philadelphia resident leaped onto and crashed through the roof of the portable toilet at the corner of Pine & Olde New Jersey Avenues on Feb. 23, North Wildwood police said Tuesday.
Police arrested him Monday and charged him with criminal mischief and disorderly conduct. The toilet was in place near the seawall because a polar bear plunge event took place in North Wildwood a day earlier.
