CINCINNATI -- At a store somewhere, there are children’s socks covered in urine thanks to a Cincinnati man.

Paul Tatum posted a live video to Facebook Wednesday night showing himself urinating in the aisle at a store he said was a Wal-Mart.

Local police said they wouldn’t go looking for Tatum yet because they don’t know the location of the store, and no complaint has been filed.

A Wal-Mart representative called the incident “gross” and “unacceptable.”

“We, in no way, tolerate this kind of behavior in our stores and will continue working with local law enforcement to investigate the matter,” the company said in a statement. “We will do everything we can to make sure he is held accountable.”

As the urination video grew in popularity, other Facebook users reposted another video showing Tatum defecating in a display toilet at a Lowe’s. It wasn’t immediately clear if that video was new or old.

A representative from Lowe’s said there was an incident in March where an individual defecated in a display toilet at a Cincinnati Lowe’s in March.

“We would be interested in working with law enforcement concerning possible options,” the company said.

The urination video was posted to Facebook just hours after Tatum posted an inspirational Facebook status praising recent graduates:
