Police are looking for a man in his late 40s, early 50s, who caused swimmers at the Bridgeport Municipal swimming pool to quickly empty out after being told the pool had been compromised with urine. Life guard, Urma Will caught the exodus on her cell and a close up of the photo shown here, shows a smiling bearded man, in what looks like a yellow pool of water.

"The pool was full of college age kids." Ms. Will told OFF THE WALL NEWS. "Then from out of nowhere I saw this older bearded gentleman come out of the shelter and jump in among them. I watched him tread water for a few minutes before whispering something to a young coed. She then screamed, he just pissed in the pool and bodies began splashing every which way in a panic to get out of the yellow water."
At first pool officials thought the culprit was none other than Dave Taylor, the senior editor and reporter at OFF THE WALL NEWS, but that turned out to be a case of mistaken identity. Taylor was still in Philadelphia, where he had been covering the DNC.
When contacted his reaction was one of disbelief. "No one looks like me, do they?"
The pool was drained and refilled by nightfall. The Dave Taylor double is still on the loose and a reward is being offered.
