Dirty diapers were really grossing out drivers along a busy California road for quite some time, according to police reports.

Now, California officials said that a man accused of repeatedly dumping adult diapers on the road was arrested and is facing a misdemeanor charge.

The District Attorney's Office said that the Orange County man, Tomoo Kawai, 67, of Newport Beach, allegedly dumped bags of dirty adult diapers on roads in Newport Beach and Laguna Beach multiple times.

Police said that they arrested Kawai, after they discovered an envelope with his address in one of the bags holding the dirty diapers. A bag containing dirty diapers was also found in his car that he was preparing to dump on the road again, police said.

Kawai is scheduled to be arraigned soon on charges of prohibited waste disposal. He faces up to six months in jail and probation if convicted on this one charge alone.
