Man doing Port-A-Potty fund-raiser assaulted

`A Mattoon man raising money for charity by living in a portable toilet for most of November was assaulted early Saturday morning by a teen-ager who had wanted to use the bathroom facilities. [..]

At approximately 4 a.m. Saturday morning, Craig said, a man knocked on the door of his Port-A-Potty, which is located at the Citgo Gas Station located on Illinois 16 near the Showplace 10 movie theater. Craig said he explained that he was staying in the Port-A-Potty for charity, but the teen, Jordan T. Maxey, 18, of Mattoon, began to argue.

The two yelled at each other for five minutes, ending with Maxey throwing [a] folding chair, Craig said.’
