TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Today's Most... Interesting political resignation: The mayor of a small town in California who was caught on tape throwing dog poop into a neighbor's yard is resigning immediately.

San Marino Mayor Dennis Kneier said "I have apologized to my neighbor for my action, and I will pay a fine for littering. These events continue to be embarrassing to me and to the city. Because of this, I have decided to step down as mayor."

Ten days ago, a video went viral of Kneier tossing a bag full of dog poop onto a neighbor's lawn. The neighbor had found the poop, and then recognized the mayor in the surveillance video. He gave the San Marino police the surveillance video, and they gave the mayor a ticket for littering.

Once the tape went viral, people in San Marino called the controversy "Poop-Gate."
