Call it Brown's brown revenge.

Jevon Brown, a 58-year-old veteran from St. Louis, mailed cat feces to a company when they didn't offer him a job, earning him two years probation Friday for the misdemeanor charge of mailing injurious articles.

The U.S. Postal Service found 20 poop packages tied to Brown, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Brown's fecal form of payback seems out of character for the veteran, who has almost no criminal history. He told the court he was seeking help from a counselor and from his church.

"I'm sorry," Brown told the court. "This will never happen again."

Brown has since found a job, according to the Post-Dispatch.
