An Albuquerque man was arrested after police say he interfered with a traffic stop, urinated in public and gave bad grammatical advice to an officer.
The Albuquerque police officer was setting up a roadblock near Downtown
early Sunday when Jesus Torrez, 24, walked up and demanded an explanation for
the traffic stop, according to a Metro Court criminal complaint.
An hour later, the same officer said he saw Torrez jump onto a trash can,
drop his pants and urinate, the complaint says.
After he was arrested, Torrez insulted the officer and kicked him in the
hand, the complaint says. Later, Torrez offered to check the officer's report
for proper grammar because he said police never pass English class, the
"He told me he would accept `aidence' if he was in my
place," the officer wrote in the complaint.
Torrez was charged with battery on a police officer.
