Hospital threw away thousands of dollars worth of medication after alleged urination incident

A patient at Florida Hospital Waterman has been accused of possibly contaminating thousands of dollars worth of medication after he reportedly urinated on a refrigerator.

According to Tavares police, hospital officials said 53-year-old Clyde Brooks, went to the emergency room on Tuesday night and sometime before 6:30am on Wednesday, he started to urinate on the walls and floor.

Some of the urine struck a small refrigerator that contained the medicine, which hospital officials said they had to dispose of due to possible contamination. Brooks was charged with criminal mischief.

He was released from the Lake County jail after he posted a $2,000 bail. Brooks has been arrested 19 other times in the past 10 years on charges that included trespassing, disorderly conduct and indecent exposure, according to Lake County Sheriff’s Office records.
