Officials say Mark Leighton was taking a bathroom break when he heard a splash, turned around, and saw his car in the lake.

BELGRADE, Maine (AP) _ Police say a Maine man's car got all wet when he stopped on the road for a bathroom break.

Chief Deputy Everett Flannery of the Kennebec County Sheriff's Office says 32-year-old Mark Leighton of Oakland stopped at a boat landing on Salmon Lake in Belgrade on Wednesday evening because he had to go.

Flannery tells the Morning Sentinel  that Leighton was going to the bathroom when he heard a splash, turned around, and saw the car in the lake.

Flannery says it appears Leighton pulled the emergency brake but forget to put the car in park.

The car was pulled from the lake by a tow truck.

No one was hurt and no charges were filed.
