Partygoer accused of urinating on police officer's head and face

When police arrived to break up a raucous 3:20am frat house party in Albany on Sunday, a New York man allegedly decided that it was the opportune moment to urinate directly down onto a police officer from an elevated position, according to investigators.

Responding to a disturbance call, Albany Police Department officers arrived at the property and “observed several people inside and outside of the residence consuming alcohol and causing a loud commotion,” police reported. The property is home to Pi Kappa Phi, an outlaw fraternity that is not recognized by the University at Albany due to its history of hazing.

As officers sought to “quell the disturbance,” Noah McCall, 19, “urinated off the rear staircase directly onto a uniformed police officer,” police noted. McCall’s urine fell “onto the head and face” of the officer, who subsequently received treatment at a local hospital for “bodily fluid exposure.”

McCall was quickly apprehended and charged with reckless assault on the damp patrolman (as well as possession of a fake Florida driver's license). A second partygoer, a 19-year-old college student, was arrested for possession of brass knuckles. Both defendants were released from custody following arraignment in Albany City Criminal Court.
