Picking the wrong car to pee on

An intoxicated Petaluma motorist who wandered off course into a cul-de-sac on MacArthur Lane at about 8 p.m. on April 14, encountered a Sonoma Valley High School administrator with years of experience confronting ill-behaved teens.

The 37-year-old motorist, now out of his white Volvo, was quite drunk, acting oddly and began threatening the administrator, who was taking out his trash, according to the police report.

Taking exception to something the administrator said, perhaps, the motorist proceeded to urinate on his car. The administrator responded by taking away the man’s car keys and calling police, who arrived promptly. There they discovered the motorist walking around talking to himself.

As a police officer approached, the motorist said, “What’s up Bro? What’s the problem.”

Noting that the suspect had a knife and a pair of scissors on his belt, the officer told him to turn around so he could be searched. Things went downhill from there, the man did not want to submit to a search or, ultimately, to being handcuffed. He also refused to perform a field sobriety test or blow into a blood-alcohol meter.
