WHEAT RIDGE, Colo. — A Colorado man who confronted a local litterbug on camera is earning both praise and criticism from social media users.

The video has received more than 500,000 views and appears to show a woman dumping trash in Denver-area parking lot. The man behind the camera, Rich Law, confronted the woman, asking “Is that the most appropriate place for that?” 

The woman ignores the man and drives off, leaving the pile of trash behind.

The woman in the video declined comment.

In response to the video, Wheat Ridge Police took to Facebook, posting a community pride message and thanking those who alerted them to the video. Police also noted they have been working to contact the owner of the vehicle.
