A man accused of dumping soiled adult diapers on Orange County roads has been formally charged.

For months, authorities struggled to find whoever was dumping the diapers on southbound lanes of Coast Highway in Newport Beach and Laguna Bach.

Tomoo Kawai, 67, was arrested after investigators found his employers address in a bag of dumped diapers.

Kawai was charged with a misdemeanor count of prohibited waste disposal. If convicted, he faces up to six months in jail.
