Brooklyn's newly renovated McCarren Park pool was closed down yet again today, but this time it wasn't for fighting. No, this time it appears that poop played a part. The Parks Department has yet to elaborate on the nature of the incident, but one spokesperson tells DNAinfo "a child had a toilet accident." We don't have any hard proof yet, but there's speculation the "accident" was fecal in nature. (Alternate lazy headline: Hipsters Aren't The Only Things Floating In McCarren Pool.)
King & Grove pool closed for cleaning, McCarren pool closed bc someone apparently shit in it. What's a girl to do?

Considering children routinely "put the p in ool" with impunity, we're assuming it took some solid waste to close the pool down. Of course, it's also possible this was just a harmless Baby Ruth.
