NEWARK, NJ — A New Jersey man has been charged with lewdness, criminal mischief and disorderly conduct for urinating on a police SUV on Saturday.
According to Fox News, viral video captured 22-year-old Tauqueer Boyd urinating on a police SUV while a crowd cheered him on. He was arrested on Sunday after police tracked him down at his home.
“We absolutely will not tolerate disrespect of our police,” said Newark Public Safety Director Anthony F. Ambrose. “We take this as a personal insult. When our department became aware of this, we moved quickly to apprehend the suspect.”
Boyd was previously arrested in October for burglarizing a police cruiser parked outside a police headquarters. Boyd and another man had rummaged through the cruiser, throwing summons books on the ground and unzipping a Narcan kit.
