Dave Matthews' Bus Dumped 800lbs Of Poop Into Chicago River 13 Years Ago

Today, August 8th, marks the 13th anniversary of the day the Dave Matthews Band's tour bus dumped 800 pounds of human waste on a river cruise floating under the Kinzie Street Bridge.

Boat passengers "described a downpour of foul-smelling, brownish-yellow slurry that ruined their clothes and made several of them sick," the afternoon of Aug. 8, 2004, the Tribune reported.

The tour bus driver ended up paying a fine, served 1½ years  probation and performed community service. The band later donated $50,000 to the Chicago Park District "to begin the healing process," according to reports.
