Men arrested after urinating in public, taunting officer

Two men were arrested for allegedly resisting a peace officer on Sunday, according to a Douglas County Sheriff’s report.

A sheriff’s deputy was told that two allegedly intoxicated men were about to leave Harvey’s rear parking lot in their vehicle and officers were attempting to prevent them from leaving.

The men were in the maintenance parking lot at the rear of the casino with security officers. One man stood near the deputy and allegedly exposed himself while urinating and laughing. The other man stood next to him laughing, according to the report.

The deputy smelled alcohol on both men. They both had red, watery eyes, slurred speech and sedated expressions, according to the report.

One of the men said they were going back to their hotel and could not pronounce the name of it, finally settling on MontBleu, the report stated.

The other man couldn’t stand up straight. The deputy said they should take taxis back.

One of the men fired off several expletives. The deputy told the man yelling the foul language to quiet down. The man grabbed the deputy by the right arm and spun him around.

The second man told the deputy to leave his friend alone. The deputy told the second man not to put his hands on him and to step away, according to the report.

The man apologized. One of the men pulled out cash. The deputy got a cab.

The deputy wrote up an indecent exposure citation for the first man.

Minutes later, the other man grabbed onto the deputy’s snowsuit , pulling his left arm back.

The first man was put into a patrol car and kicked the door. The deputy handcuffed the first man and put him back in the car. The other man pulled on the deputy and said “you can’t take him,” the report stated.

The deputy ordered the second man to get into the taxi or he would be arrested. The

man refused to leave without his friend. The deputy handcuffed the second man and put him in the back of the car.

Both men were booked at Lake Jail and allegedly failed their breath tests.
