How to avoid being arrested for public urination on highway, police officer tells police

The man who allegedly caught a trooper urinating in his car on Interstate 94 was charged with public urinating and possession of a drug paraphernalia.

A Ketchum, Idaho, police deputy told Wooten the man who called 911 to report the man was urinating on the road near the Highway Patrol Office was arrested after the deputy noticed the man’s breath smelled of alcohol.

Wooten said the deputy saw the man take a drink from his cup before driving off, according to Ketchamans Public Information Officer Brad Wootens.

Wollersheim said the trooper, who is on paid administrative leave, was taken to the Ketchums jail.

A public information officer for the Kettle Mound Police Department told WOWT 13 News that officers were patrolling the area where the alleged incident took place and saw a man urinating.

The officer contacted the KMPD Highway Patrol office, which has an officer on administrative leave.

Wodens said the incident has been investigated by the KPD Highway patrol.
