Joseph Houston - Brewster Police Officer Accused Of Exposing Himself And Urinating On A Patron At A Metallica Concert
Brewster, Massachusetts (The Weekly Vice) -- Joseph Houston, a 29-year-old Brewster Police officer is in hot water over accusations of trespassing, exposing himself and urinating on a patron while attending a Metallica concert.
According to authorities, Houston was charged with trespassing, may face additional charges and is on paid administrative leave. The action comes after Houston allegedly engaged in a series of lewd and bizarre activities during a Metallica concert that took place at TD Banknorth Garden on January 18.
According to Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority Police, a visibly intoxicated Joseph Houston "pulled down his pants and urinated on a male victim. Then, with his penis still out, he lunged toward the male victim's sister several times," according to the MBTA police report.
MBTA police officers say Houston then physically harassed several women and then got into a fight with one of the men while on the concert grounds.
When MBTA officers ejected Houston from the concert grounds, he allegedly pulled out his badge and refused to leave on the grounds that he was a Brewster police officer. Officers also say Houston called one of the officers an "Obama" after they transported him off property.
Police say that despite their repeated warnings that he would be arrested, Houston allegedly returned to the property. He was then arrested after a brief struggle with MBTA officers.
Although Houston is currently charged only with trespassing, Boston police are investigating the possibility of bringing additional charges for Houston's alleged lewd and disruptive behavior.
He is expected to appear in court on Feb. 5th to answer the trespassing charge.
