A Florida man who was arrested for driving without a license on Sunday decided to have himself a pee party at his local police station.
While in custody of the Gainesville Police, the man decided that he not only needed to take a piss but that doing it on an x-ray machine and the nearest detention officer was the place to do it.
According to a Gainesville Police report, Raymond E. Lawhorn, 34, was pulled over late Sunday evening when he hit the curb of a street with his front tire.
The report says Lawhorn also almost struck a squad car when he turned to pull away.
When pulled over, Lawhorn told the cop that he did not have a valid driver's license and that it had been revoked. He was then taken to the Alachua County jail.
And that's where the pissing started.
Cops say Lawhorn began pissing on the floor and then aimed his sights on the x-ray machine and started to piss on that. He then pissed on one of the officers.
Police asked him to put his hands behind his back to be cuffed, but Lawhorn refused, presumably because he wasn't done pissing on things. The officers had to tackle him to the ground in order to cuff and detain him, which had to be rough.
According to the Gainesville Sun, pissing on an officer of the law is considered battery, because Lawhorn was being held on $10,000 bond on charges of battery on detention staff. He was also charged with resisting arrest without violence and driving while his license was revoked.
