A drunken off-duty cop has been accused of urinating in the audience at a METALLICA concert. According to the Cape Cod Times, Joseph Houston was booted from Metallica’s 18 January (09) concert in Boston, Massachusetts for relieving himself among the audience.
The police officer was reportedly asked to leave the venue because he was drunk, but he managed to re-enter by flashing his badge.
He was kicked out for good after allegedly urinating on another concert-goer.
Local police chief Richard Koch has confirmed the incident happened, but refused to name the officer involved. No charges have been filed against the disgraced cop beyond trespassing, which carries a maximum $100 (GBP71.40) fine and/or 30 days in jail.
Houston is due in court on 5 February (09). He has been placed on paid administrative leave following the incident.
