A former high-ranking CNN executive and University of Georgia professor has been caught red-handed in a prank more fitting for adolescent pranksters than a middle-aged man.
What did he do? Unaware that he was in plain view of a security camera, Bob Furnad left a bag of dog feces in his neighbor's mailbox.
CBS Atlanta has more information:
Furnad told the Covington News that he pulled the prank due to a long-standing feud with the two [neighbors].
“This was an immature act in response to years of malicious rumor mongering that I consider defamation of character,” Furnad told the paper.
[The neighbor] Dameron says he and Miller were getting ready for a wedding at Worthington Manor when they found the package.
“We were working, getting ready for a wedding and we were out on the driveway,” Dameron told WGCL. “We thought, well, we’re this close, we’ll check the mail box to see if the mail’s come."
They found something else entirely, and now Furnad faces a $180 fine.
Interestingly, when CBS Atlanta reporters asked the neighbors about the feud that prompted the incident, they said they had "no idea" what the feud was about.
Moreover, they have chosen not to confront Furnad about the stunt.
"I don't see a reason to [talk to him], that's just silly," one explained.
