SAN MARINO, Calif. (AP) — The mayor of a wealthy California town who was caught on camera tossing dog poop onto the walkway of a political opponent is being asked to resign by residents who say he smeared their image.

During a City Council meeting on Wednesday, San Marino residents blasted Mayor Dennis Kneier (kuh-NEER') and called for him to step down, even though he has apologized.

Police cited him for littering, which can carry a fine of up to $1,000.

The mayor of the tidy Los Angeles suburb says he found a bag of dog waste on a parkway Saturday and tossed it onto the front walkway of a home.

The homeowner, Philip Lao, is a political opponent. He recognized the mayor on surveillance video and called police.
