Man Picks Wrong Spot When Nature Calls
Aug. 12, 2006
CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) _ Sometimes when nature calls, there's no time to delay, but a Kentucky man sure picked the wrong spot for a pit stop.
Michael Ray Hunter, 37, found out Wednesday night that the parking lot of the West Virginia State Police headquarters in South Charleston isn't the right spot.
Trooper J.S. Crane just happened to be walking nearby as Hunter was relieving himself.
As Crane approached, he smelled alcohol. That discovery led Crane to the pickup truck where Hunter's buddy, James Alan Richardson, 40, was checking phone messages.
During a search of the truck, Crane and another trooper found a marijuana pipe and pills for which Richardson had no prescription.
Both men were arrested for public intoxication. Hunter also is charged with indecent exposure and Richardson is charged with possessing controlled substances.
