Fortunately, soccer fans in England aren't the type to heckle a guy over something like this:
England defender Glen Johnson, who plays for Portsmouth on loan from Chelsea, and Millwall striker Ben May were caught at B&Q in Dartford, Kent, on Wednesday.
The pair were spotted by a security guard putting a toilet seat into a box with a cheaper price tag before they reached the checkout, The Sun reported.
It was a 74-year-old security guard that caught him, too, which leads me to believe that Glen Johnson and Ben May are not a master criminals. The only thing sadder than the fact that someone was dumb enough to do this is that two people were dumb enough to do this... and not even do it competently.
This is, to my knowledge, the first known instance of a professional athlete committing toilet seat theft. Unfortunately for me, I had Ron Artest in the "Who Will Steal a Toilet Seat First" office pool, and thought I was still solidly behind the lady who had Eddie Griffin and R. Kelly.
