Hudson Valley Man Allegedly Exposes Himself

Police say the passenger in the vehicle was "highly intoxicated", and repeatedly exited the vehicle and refused to comply with officers. Police said that the 23-year-old man from Saugerties was "verbally threatening towards the officers and eventually shoved one of the officers who was attempting to calm him down."
It was at that point, according to the release, that the suspect whipped it out and proceeded to urinate on the ground. Police did not indicate how long he was urinating, though they say the suspect fought with them, and resisted their efforts to arrest him.
He was arrested and charged with the Misdemeanor of Resisting Arrest and the Violations of Exposure of a Person and Harassment in the 2nd Degree.
