HOUSTON (CBS Houston/AP) — A vendor at Houston’s Minute Maid Park has been fired after a fan filmed him taking a tray of snow cones into a stadium bathroom and putting it on the floor of the stall while using the facilities.

The fan shared the video with the local NBC affiliate, which aired a report Wednesday night.

“I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. This guy is taking a dump. There’s no doubt about it,” the unidentified fan told KPRC-TV. “What sane person could possibly think, yeah this is a good idea. I’ll just put the food that I’m about to sell on the floor.”

New Astros president Reid Ryan says in a statement: “The Astros were notified immediately by our partner ARAMARK of the incident involving a vendor on Monday night. We commend the swift reaction displayed by ARAMARK of terminating the employee immediately upon learning of the incident that evening.”

ARAMARK, which runs all of the food services at the ballpark, says this was an isolated incident and that the vendor’s actions were “a clear violation of our food safety practices and are not reflective of our standards.”
