There’s healthy competition and then there’s this.

Jung Soon Wypcha, 66, allegedly peed in an ice cream machine at Lu Lu’s Ice Cream Shop in Indian Shores, Fla., a rival business to her own, ruining around $2,000 worth of ice cream, the Tampa Bay Times reports.

It gets worse though.

According to an arrest affidavit, Wypcha not only peed in the ice cream machine but also spat and wiped her own snot into the ice cream tubs at Lu Lu’s.

Wypcha owns the Indian Shores Food Mart beside Lu Lu’s Ice Cream Shop where they share a bathroom, WPTV reported.

According to police, Wypcha’s “bathroom breaks” were all caught on camera.

The footage shows Wypcha use the bathroom multiple times over the course of June.

Arrest reports claim the footage shows Wypcha not washing her hands after using the bathroom and can be seen on multiple occasions walking into a freezer and shoving her dirty hands into tubs of ice cream.

Not to be outdone by her previous brash pit stops at Lu Lu’s, on the final occasion, Wypcha allegedly used the ice cream churning machine as a toilet and urinated into the sink used to clean the ice cream bowls, WPTV reports.

Lu Lu’s was forced to shut down for several days, had to throw out the ruined product, and clean their equipment.

As for what prompted Wypcha’s lewd behaviour, Paul Chiulli and wife Beth, owners of the Lu Lu’s told WPTV : “We didn’t even know she was mad. But I’m guessing it’s from the parking and us being popular.”

“Stuff like this can ruin our business and can ruin our lives,” they added.

According to the Tampa Bay Times, Wypcha declined to comment on her behaviour.

Wypcha was charged with criminal mischief and tampering with consumer products and was released on $5,000 bail.
