Urinating Man Arrested at the Pleasant Hill BART Station

August 28, 2014 10:00 am · 36 comments

While on patrol, an officer observed a male subject urinating on the platform this week at the Pleasant Hill BART station.

A warrant check revealed that the subject had a Felony warrant for $30K for Burglary.

The subject was arrested and booked into the Martinez Detention Facility after a Sergeant approved the arrest.

The man’s name has not been released at this time.

Moving in silent desperation, keeping an eye on the Holy Land.
A hypothetical destination, say, who is this urinating man?

Urine big trouble mister!!

BART would be lost without a sergeant nearby.

Oh, dear…that sounds way too much like a James Taylor song lyric, Gargoyle.

For those who dont know, why does an officer, who enforces the law, require a sargeant to approve of the arrest.

@ Gargoyle

Good start but I think you should compose a haiku.

It’s the much fabled incontinent burglar.

“For those who dont know, why does an officer, who enforces the law, require a sargeant to approve of the arrest.”

Ever since the Johannes Meserhle case, where there was excessive force used, a sergeant must approve the rest now, to ensure correct procedures are followed.

To Pee or not to Pee…

The guy had a felony warrant.

My question is this: Did he start before or after he saw the officer?

mohairs August 28, 2014 at 11:26 AM

You can’t be fleeing if you’re peeing!! Stories like this one make us goofy, huh?

PhilthyPHRESH August 28, 2014 at 11:36 AM

I still do not understand the mentality of people with warrants hanging at BART……..

Walnut Creek Resident August 28, 2014 at 11:36 AM

Now this is so important we need to all be aware of this!!

Look at the bright side. At least he wasn’t wasting drinking water.

Obviously, a man with Neanderthal genes-possible IQ of about 70.
I think if I had a warrant out for me, and I had to go, I would use the public restrooms.DUH.

This person can’t follow any rules of society, can he?

RCC August 28, 2014 at 12:01 PM

@ #9 thanks.

There isn’t any where else to go at BART. I prefer to use the seats myself, as they soak up the urine quite nicely.

Peeing on the tracks,
Can’t shake felony warrant,
I sure enjoy meth!

PogueMehone August 28, 2014 at 1:01 PM

BART station relief,
Societal parasite,
Missed the third rail.

The Professor August 28, 2014 at 1:04 PM

Ah, such sweet release.
There is nothing to see here.
Give it a shake, cop.

an expensive leak August 28, 2014 at 1:05 PM

“who ya gonna call?”

Drought August 28, 2014 at 1:51 PM

Hope they dont waste too much water cleaning that up.

RunnerDope August 28, 2014 at 2:18 PM

So they arrested him while he was urinating? Sounds messy.

VikingPrincess August 28, 2014 at 2:47 PM

After reading the posts, the jingle about a children’s board game from The Ren & Stimpy show.
How does it go?
“Don’t pee on the electric fence”

Oh dear..

Marianne August 28, 2014 at 3:41 PM

Was he jingling while he was tinkling…..

The Mamba August 28, 2014 at 3:58 PM

Big disgrace waiving
His dong all over the place
Post pics of his face!

MikeT August 28, 2014 at 4:11 PM

He is lucky he didn’t hit that third rail!

anonanonagain August 28, 2014 at 4:25 PM

What an idiot. He keeps pissing his life away……..
Couldn’t resist.

WTF August 28, 2014 at 7:58 PM

Am I the only one who thinks “Urinating Man” sounds a wee bit like “Burning Man” (and if so, if it burns, see a doctor).

Mika August 28, 2014 at 9:24 PM

BART needs to open their bathrooms again. Some people cannot hold it, like older people or young children.

funny man August 28, 2014 at 9:55 PM

if the diaper doesn’t fit, you must aquit!
(am I doin it right?)
