A 31-year-old suburban Detroit man faces a misdemeanor assault and battery charge after urinating on several people during an annual gay pride event.
The Daily Tribune of Royal Oak reports the Taylor man had been drinking and was upset that he was splashed with water aimed at street dancers Sunday during the Motor City Pride Festival in Ferndale.
Police Lt. William Wilson says "he may have wanted to take revenge," turned and urinated on the leg of a man standing next to him.
The Detroit Free Press reports two other people were sprayed in the process.
The man is to be arraigned June 23.
Police say it was the only arrest at the festival, which attracts thousands to the community just north of Detroit.
