A Chicago police officer vacationing in Florida gets charged with two misdemeanours for urinating in an ice machine at a beach bar on Monday.
An employee at Jimmy B’s Beach Bar told police he “discovered” the defendant “pissing” on the ice in the machine” at 12:32 a.m., according to Capouch’s arrest affidavit.
The Beachcomber Resort Hotel on St. Pete Beach houses the bar.
Capouch’s Bond was $650
The bar employee said police urged Capouch to stop soiling the ice, but the CPD officer “began verbally insulting the victim and shoved him a few times with both of his hands.”
The report reportedly alleges Capouch pushed a security officer who saw the event.
Capouch, a five-year Chicago police veteran, “was aggressively resisting and initially not following legal directions while being held,” according to the lawsuit.
Capouch’s arrest was broken by The Smoking Gun.
