A teen was arrested on a charge of outraging public decency after being seen urinating on a memorial of two young children, according to police in the United Kingdom.

Now, 18-year-old Alex Stott of Great Sankey, has been sentenced to complete 200 of community service after being convicted of outraging public decency, possessing cannabis and failure to comply with a dispersal order.

According to the police investigation, Stott had been drinking heavily both before and during a night out in Warrington town centre.

In the early hours of Sunday, police spotted Stott getting into an argument with two men outside the Reflex Bar located on Academy Way.

Stott was given an anti-social behaviour dispersal notice by the police officer, meaning he had to stay away from the city center from the following 24 hours.

However, Stott failed to leave, and 10 minutes later, he was seen urinating into the Fountain of Life memorial in Bridge Street, and then getting into an altercation with a woman.

The fountain was created in memory of 12-year-old Tim Parry and 3-year-old Johnathan Ball, who were killed when an Irish Republican Army (IRA) bomb went off in Warrington town centre.

When Stott was arrested by police, he was found to be carrying a small bag of cannabis. In addition to community service, Stott has been ordered to pay 85 pounds ($113) in costs and 85 pounds in victim surcharges.
