Investigators have tracked down the person for starting a 73-acre wildfire in Boise, Idaho on Wednesday: a cyclist who had to drop a deuce.

According to a press release from the Bureau of Land Management, the bike rider was trying to be responsible and did not want to litter – so he lit his toilet paper on fire and then tried to bury it. It obviously was a shitty plan.

To the cyclist’s credit, he contacted investigators and confessed on Thursday morning (Oh, what I would not have given to have answered that call!).

The cyclist’s name was not released. He was cited and may have to pay the entire cost of fighting the fire.
