Man Arrested After Filling Hotel Bathtub With Potatoes High On MDMA, 'It Felt Like The Right Thing To Do'

A judge at Southampton Crown Court in Southampton, England, was beside himself over a criminal case he called "odd and bizarre."

The case involved drug use, women's lingerie and spuds.


Police arrested 30-year-old James Johnson at Travelodge in Eastleigh. James wore a bra over his shirt, appeared intoxicated and was apparently filling a bathtub with potatoes in the hotel room.


To celebrate his return to his hometown of Eastleigh, Johnson decided to go full Animal House for a night of uninhibited partying with two of his besties.


...but with drugs.

James booked a room at a Travelodge in the town near Southampton and purchased ยฃ750 (approximately $975) worth of drugs on the dark web. The initial one-night-binge extended to five days as the trio loaded up on various substances.

Four days later, police officers discovered Johnson reentering his room blitzed out of his mind and wearing a women's bra over his shirt.

The peculiar sighting revealed plenty about Johnson's mental state, but his bag loaded with five pounds worth of taters took things to another level.

Police searched James' room and found a cornucopia of drugs, including ecstasy or MDMA, the hallucinogen 2CB and 5 MA-PB.

Also, a bathtub being filled with potatoes.

In England, chips are American fries and crisps are American chips.

According to Daily Echo, prosecutor James Kellum told court officials that hotel staff members were alerted to the smell of pot emanating from the boys' room.

A separate search of Johnson's home in Ely uncovered even more drugs. He was charged with possession with intent to supply, to which he pleaded guilty.

The court discovered that Johnson, who works as a volunteer, was on prescribed medication but stopped taking them once he turned to "class A" drugs.


After authorities seized and tested the drugs found in his hotel room, drug experts discovered that the actual value of the impure drugs was really about ยฃ300 ($390).

In an attempt to gather some clarity for the hotel hedonism involving the spud bath, Judge Peter Henry asked Johnson why he did it.

Johnson's response was plain and simple.

"It felt like the right thing to do at the time."


Can't deny the spuds.

People commented on the ridiculousness of the spudly affair.







Johnson will serve 18-months of community service and was ordered to enroll in a nine-month drug rehabilitation program.

No word on what happened to the potatoes, though.

Times change, and if you don't change with them you're likely to get left behind. That simple piece of wisdom applies to pretty much everything - up to and including the job market. It seems like a lot of older didn't get that memo, though.

Reddit user u/GeekyKirby wanted to get something for their boyfriend for his birthday, but he said not to get him anything because it is so close to Christmas, so they decided it was time to get creative.

When asked what they bought him, u/GeekyKirby replied:

I pre-ordered him a game [Kingdom Hearts III], and bought him a shirt and a book he wanted :) ...I also filled up his living room floor with balloons...

It seems minor mischief is a common theme in their relationship:

Thank you. :) At this point, I can't really surprise my boyfriend anymore. And I try lol. Like the time I secretly put googly eyes on everything in his fridge...

Oh, and they made him this Pikachu cake. You know, nbd.

Users were impressed by u/GeekyKirby's piping skills. Also, the hate for fondant icing is real!

Nicely done and without fondant! r/FondantHate - Patiod

Making something for someone is a great way to show them you love them.

The fact that Surprised Pikachu is still around in 2019 really speaks to its universal appeal and ease of use. People will surely keep coming up with inventive ways to use the meme.

If there's one thing Christian Bale is known for, aside from a very gravely Batman voice, it's the physical transformations he undergoes for his roles. The actor is known to yo-yo his weight from role to role, in order to better portray his characters.

Now, however, the actor is considering calling it quits on the dangerous transformations. In an interview with The Sunday Times, the actor described his process with playing Dick Cheney in the new film Vice.
