Dallas Man Cited for Assault After Peeing on a Cop's Head at Uptown Apartment Complex

To be fair, the man couldn't have known Antonio Quintanilla was a cop. It was 3 a.m., and Quintanilla wasn't in uniform. He was just some guy smoking a cigarette on the balcony of the apartment below at the Villas of Katy Trail early on Saturday morning.

That said, Quintanilla's status as a certified peace officer -- one who's been awarded for saving lives, no less -- shouldn't have mattered. Dropping trou and urinating on a stranger's head is never a smart move.

Quintanilla wasn't sure that's what has happening at first. He merely felt a warm liquid dripping on his head. It was only when he looked up, thereby putting his face directly in the line of fire, that he realized he was being pissed on.

Give Quintanilla credit for remaining calm. Rather than go upstairs and beat the hell out of the guy as some might be inclined to do, he called 911. When his Dallas Police Department colleague arrived, Quintanilla led him to the balcony where the officer "was able to observe wet and humid areas where the urine had fallen and could smell a distinct odor," according to a police report.

The man upstairs, who had either passed out by this point or chose not to open the door, didn't answer the officer's knocks. Nevertheless, he was issued an at-large citation for misdemeanor assault. Because he was not arrested, police have not released his name.

I guess he was pissed off because he was pissed on.

Oh, come on, everybody's pissed on a stranger at some point. So can it with the ingenue bit. Also, flicked ashes in their hair at a concert and laughed because it was funny..

There are certain actions that I believe excuse someone beating the ever loving hell out of someone, this is one of them. It doesn't matter that the person being pissed on was a police officer. If the man had gone upstairs and beaten the hell out of his neighbor, I would have applauded him. 

I'm hoping this counts as some sort of violation of the upstairs neighbor's lease and he gets evicted for it.

I really hope Antonio Quintanilla has not filled out the non smokers disclosure form, otherwise this story made for a awkward HR experience.

Gee, I wish they put half of this effort into trying to find my truck when it was stolen.  But then again a DPD officer drove by it everyday for about three weeks while it was illegally parked.

That shit is easy to beat in court. Some asshole cop mailed me a citation, wiped his ass in court.

@Tim.Covington  But sometimes you accidentally piss on a neighbor. Happens. Accept it and move forward.

@JaniceA  You know the old saying; "The only good cop is a a urine-soaked cop  succumbing to blind rage and confusion."

@ThePosterFormerlyKnownasPaul  Most police officers' #1 priority is to maintain their authoritative image and to be respected and/or feared by everyone at all times.  Solving property crimes is just a servile administrative task for pencil-necks, not worthy of a member of the noble warrior class.
