A 35-year-old Waldo man was charged Wednesday for allegedly driving drunk, then urinating on the arresting officer while in a squad car.
Police say Daniel L. Shilts, of 720 W. Second St., was pulled over about 2 a.m. in the City of Plymouth after the officer saw him drive in the parking lane and nearly strike the curb while making turns, according to a criminal complaint. The officer followed Shilts as he pulled into a gas station and struck a pole, then nearly backed into the squad car before coming to a stop.
Shilts was arrested after the officer smelled alcohol on his breath and Shilts failed field sobriety tests, the complaint said. While en route to the police station, Shilts urinated in the back seat of the squad car and also sprayed some urine through the center divider, striking the officer in the back of the head, the complaint said.
Shilts was charged with misdemeanor fourth-offense operating while intoxicated, felony discharging bodily fluids at a public safety worker, misdemeanor operating after revocation and three felony counts of bail jumping tied to other pending felony cases. He could face up to 15.5 years in prison, if convicted on all counts.
