Boston Police issue this report on BPDNews.com about an incident last night in front of Saraceno Restaurant and Cafe Pompeii on Hanover Street:
There’s a Right Way and a Wrong Way to Water the Plants
At about 1:54am, on Wednesday, December 14, 2011, an officer on foot patrol in the area of Hanover Street observed a large crowd gathered in front of the Saraceno Restaurant in the area of 284 Hanover Street. As the officer got closer to the group, the officer observed a white male urinating into a potted plant resting in front of the location. When the individual realized that he was in the presence of a police officer, the individual quickly stopped urinating on the plant.
Officers spoke to an irritated employee from the Café Pompeii restaurant who stated that the individual and his friends had dined at his restaurant. According to the employee, the suspect and his friends made a stink about the bill before finally paying and then exiting the restaurant. However, the employee goes on to say that when the suspect exited the restaurant, he spit on the restaurant’s pane glass window and then proceeded to urinate on the plants.
Said the suspect to the officers, “You guys are really making a big deal out of this just because I took a leak on a pine tree.”
Officers arrested Chris McNamara, 33, of Boston and charged him with Indecent Exposure.
