Alfred Ferrara, 59, from Cleveland and Mary Schroeder, 67, from Hudson, Ohio were charged with resisting arrest, inducing panic, and criminal trespass after they threatened to shoot up a restaurant in East Palestine, Ohio on Tuesday where Steve Bannon was hosting his talk show.
According to WKBN News, after threatening Bannon the two drove off and then rammed their car into the local sewer plant where they became stuck in human excrement and assorted raw sewage.

Ferrara then allegedly left in a car being driven by Schroeder, who later drove the car into a solids-holding tank at the sewer plant, causing the car to be submerged.
