A City Council member from New Jersey had himself a wild weekend which included urinating over people at a nightclub and a subsequent arrest.The Washington Post's account of this story reports, "Lipski was described as "a wonderful and caring person." Another...said he always put "the well-being of his fellow human beings first." His pee must be of very high quality.
Steven Lipski, 44, a New Jersey councilman, made a fool of himself Friday night and possibly endangered his political career by attending a concert by a Grateful Dead tribute band in Washington, D.C., ingesting a serious amount of alcohol and then proceeding to urinate on fellow concertgoers.
Lipski was at the 9:30 Club in Washington, D.C. and the other people attending the show were not equally inebriated so as not to notice what Lipski was doing from atop a second-floor balcony. Police officers were called; he was arrested and charged with simple assault, reports the New York Daily News.
