DUI Suspect Urinated on Officer’s Leg

A Las Vegas man is facing several charges after threatening law enforcement and urinating on an officer’s leg when he was arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol.

Just after 2:00 AM on February 19, the authorities in Southeast Las Vegas were notified by a woman who said she saw her ex-husband get drunk at a bar. She informed them that he was drunk when he got behind the wheel of his vehicle, and before he drove away, she tried to convince him to stay at her nearby residence for the night.

Officers from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department located the vehicle when the driver was entering the onramp for the highway, and they initiated a traffic stop. The driver reportedly stopped the car in the middle of the road.

When the officers approached and spoke to the man, they believed he was intoxicated. When asked, he refused to consent to blood-alcohol concentration testing.

Officers took the suspect into custody, and while they were transporting him to the jail, he asked them to pull over so he could urinate on the roadside. When they refused, the man allegedly began acting unruly. When they arrived at the jail, the suspect allegedly punched an officer, in addition to urinating on an officer’s leg.

The man was booked into the Clark County Detention Center. He is facing preliminary charges of unlawful acts related to human excrement or bodily fluid, driving with a revoked license, and driving under the influence, in addition to charges regarding having failed to register his address as a convicted felon. According to reports, he was released from jail with orders to abstain from drinking alcohol, and he is not allowed to drive.
