A man, who was arrested for driving without a license, was also charged for urinating on jail machines and an officer, according to prison officials in Florida.

Gainesville Police said that the man urinated on an X-ray machine in prison.

Raymond E. Lawhorn, 34, of 1320 NE 39th Ave, was driving east on Northeast 8th Avenue around 10:30 am Sunday when an officer saw him hit the curb with his right front tire, according to a report from the Gainesville Police.

Lawhorn then tried to turn left, but was blocked by a median. He turned north on Northeast 14th Street and nearly hit a marked police vehicle, the report said.

Police arrested Lawhorn and told the officer he did not have a valid driver’s license as it has been permanently revoked.
He was taken to the Alachua County jail, where police said he began urinating on the floor, the X-ray machine and an officer. He refused to put his hands behind his back to be handcuffed and was wrestled to the ground.

Lawhorn was being held on $10,000 bond Monday on charges of battery on detention staff, resisting arrest without violence and driving with a revoked license.
