Public Urination Lands Man in Jail
By Jacob Mathias
After he refused to stop urinating in front of a hotel entry, a Wisconsin Rapids man has charged with obstruction and disorderly conduct.
Terri Moore, 30, faces 9 months imprisonment, a $10,000 fine or both for the charge of resisting or obstructing an officer, a Class A misdemeanor. For the Class B misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct, he faces 90 days imprisonment, a $1,000 fine or both.
According to court documents, Wisconsin Rapids police were called to America’s Best Value Inn on 8th St. South when a caller reported Moore was relieving himself by the entryway.
Moore was ordered to cease urinating zip his pants back up multiple times but refused. When the officer told Moore to comply or he would be arrested, Moore said, “F*** You.”
Moore finished urinating and walked away from the officer. The officer ordered Moore to stop and put his hand behind his back. Moore continued walking away and became combative as he was being handcuffed by kicking the officer. Moore continued to kick the interior of the squad car after being arrested.
Moore was released on a $350 cash bond on July 21 with the stipulation that he make no contact with the America’s Best Value Inn.
Moore returns to branch 2 of the Wood County Circuit Court at 9:00 AM on September 11 for a pre-trial conference.
