Louisville man accused of urinating in public library
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A 24-year-old Louisville man was arrested Monday after police say he exposed himself in the main branch of the public library and urinated on the floor.
According to an arrest report, it happened March 24 around 4 p.m. at the library located in the 300 block of Library Place near Broadway in downtown Louisville. That's where police say they responded to a call to assist EMS inside the building. When officers arrived, they found Monterie Smith passed out at one of the computers.
According to the arrest report, Smith smelled strongly of alcohol and had a half empty bottle of vodka on his person. Officers remained on scene so Smith could be checked by EMS to ensure he wasn't suffering from alcohol poisoning.
When EMS crews arrived, police say Smith stood up and exposed himself in the middle of the public library and "started urinating in view of the general public," including police, EMS crews women, and children.
Library staff planned to have the area professionally cleaned "due to the natural biohazard human urine causes."
Smith was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct, indecent exposure, alcohol intoxication in a public place, and criminal mischief.
