84-year-old man arrested for dumping a bowl of urine on a teenager
Revenge is a tricky business. When someone does something that irritates us, we want to get back at them in an equally irritating yet highly creative way. Apparently this 84-year-old man deemed dumping a bowl of urine on a 13-year-old boy a fitting revenge for the boy's vandalizing the man's walkway.
Charles Weatherford of Evansville, Ind. was arrested on Saturday for dumping a bowl of urine on a 13-year-old boy. Weatherford reportedly called police after the teen smashed landscaping bricks outside the man's home. The police noted in a report that they smelled a "strong odor of urine" at the scene.
After police left the scene, they were called back because the boy's mother, Alicia Lile, accused the elderly neighbor of pouring urine on her son from the man's balcony. The teen reportedly told the police that he and Weatherford were arguing before the incident occurred. When officers questions Weatherford, he said that he was angry because the teen called him names and challenged him to a fight. Police said:
"Weatherford then stated that he then threw a liquid onto the Juvenile male suspect."
Upon Weatherford's arrest, the police said that the elderly man confessed that he does indeed use urine as a self-defense tool. The police said:
"He disclosed that he did sometimes keep a bowl of urine on his balcony for self defense."
Weatherford was charged with battery by communicable bodily waste, a felony, and battery on a victim under the age of 14. He is scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday, August 19.
