A Seattle man was taken into custody after he went a little too far in going with the flow – by urinating all over the inside of a police car despite having an adult diaper on. The man, whose name was not released, had already gotten his feet – and some other stuff – wet when he peed on a bed and the floor when he was taken to a hospital after being found passed out drunk. Then he spat on one staffer.

The Manatee County Sheriff’s Office said a deputy responded to a report of a “female in the street kicking people in genitals and running around.” Katina Collins, who matched the description of the suspect, walked away from the approaching deputy and allegedly spun around when he followed her and punched him in the face, knocking off his sunglasses. The deputy was able to wrestle Collins to the ground and she allegedly tried to scratch his face while he put the handcuffs on her. Collins was arrested on a charge of battery on an officer and taken to the Manatee County jail in lieu of $1,500 bond. Police did not give a motive for Collins’ alleged groin attacks.
