As revealed by The Courier-Mail, Mr Macintosh was charged after allegedly defecating on a unit block pathway in Greenslopes while going about his morning run.

The alleged deed was captured on camera by a fed-up resident.

Mr Macintosh was a national quality manager with Aveo and a member of Brisbane City Council's Inclusive Board.

SCROLL DOWN TO SEE HOW SOCIAL MEDIA REACTED

This morning Aveo confirmed Mr Macintosh - a former director of the Retirement Village Association of Australia - had now resigned from the company.

"Until yesterday, Aveo Group was not aware of the charges laid against Mr Macintosh," a company spokesman said.

"Aveo Group is distressed and disappointed at the alleged incidents concerning Mr Macintosh. He has tendered his resignation to the company today and is no longer an employee of Aveo Group.

"Aveo will continue to extend its support to Mr Macintosh for help that he may require.

His resignation came as the story went viral on social media, trending on Twitter. One user even created the Twitter handle @poojogger.
