FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) - Lee County deputies have identified a man they say robbed a bank, covered himself in his feces and threw it at authorities.

The News-Press of Fort Myers (http://newspr.es/29Apw8m ) reports that officials identified the man as 25-year-old Dravion Vonkeith Hampleton.

Hampleton was arrested Tuesday after officials say he robbed a bank. When he was questioned by deputies, they say Hampleton asked to use the restroom. He later emerged from the restroom covered in feces and threw it at officers.

He was charged with armed robbery, battery on a law enforcement officer and resisting arrest violence. Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers says Hampleton will also be charged with providing false information to law enforcement after lying about his name when questioned.

He remains in jail on a $250,000 bond. It's unclear if he has an attorney.
