HR Strange But True!
August 19, 2009

A custodian is facing charges that he urinated on an employee's chair multiple times after the woman complained that he harassed her.

WLKY reports that the investigation began when an employee in the Clark County (Indiana) government building reported that she kept finding an unusual substance on her chair when she reported to work. The director of the building asked a contractor to install a video camera to monitor her work area.

The investigators said that when they reviewed the video tape, they could see a man urinating on the woman's chair and then wiping it with a paper towel, the building director tells WLKY. The building director said the man was identified as a second-shift custodian at the building.

Prosecutors said that the woman had previously filed a complaint against the custodian, alleging that he had hugged her inappropriately and called her “sweetheart,” WLKY reports. Prosecutors said that the man urinated on the woman's chair in retaliation for the complaint.

"I've been a prosecutor for 25 years and we've had our share of unusual perversion,” Clark County Prosecuting Attorney Steven D. Stewart tells WLKY. "This is the first time I've ever had a case where our defendant allegedly victimized somebody by urinating on somebody's property. I understand it's not rape, robbery, burglary or murder, but it's pretty disgusting and it's got most people here at the courthouse here upset."

In addition to facing charges of attempted battery by bodily waste, the custodian was reportedly fired.
