Partygoer accused of urinating on NY officer
Noah McCall, 19, urinated on an officer from a staircase and was charged with reckless assault
ALBANY — City police officers who went to the site of a loud party early Sunday said one of the partygoers urinated from a staircase onto an officer.
At 3:20 a.m., officers went to 470 Hudson Ave., where they say several people inside and out were drinking alcohol and causing a disturbance.
Noah McCall, 19, urinated on an officer, police said. McCall was charged with reckless assault, police said.
A resident was found with metal knuckles, police said. Luca Quinn, a 19-year-old State University at Albany student, was charged with criminal possession of a weapon.
Both men were arraigned in Albany City Court and released.
Police also requested a building and codes inspection of the house. The inspection found the building to be unsafe and uninhabitable.
Police were called to the home at least two other times in the last 15 months.
At about 12:15 a.m. on Aug. 30, police received a report of a loud party and found a group of people drinking alcohol. Police noted safety hazards on that visit and requested a building and codes inspection. The site was deemed uninhabitable.
On 1:15 a.m. Nov. 9, 2012, police found 14 people in the basement for what appeared to be an initiation for membership in a group or fraternity.
Officers said they saw several people face down on the basement floor with their faces submerged in water. They were being struck with wooden paddles and rubber hoses while being told to "beg for mercy" and having cold water from a garden hose sprayed on their heads.
Nine people were arrested on charges of hazing, criminal nuisance, unlawful assembly, obstruction of governmental administration and resisting arrest.
