While on his way to the Columbia County Detention Center early Sunday, a Martinez man urinated in the back of a patrol car.

Eric Nathaniel Baker, 25, of the 500 block of Oakbrook Drive, was charged with criminal trespass and interference with government property.

A neighbor called deputies at about 3 a.m. after hearing yelling and items being thrown around Baker’s home. She saw Baker throwing items out of the garage into the driveway and yelling at a 27-year-old woman, possibly his girlfriend.

The 27-year-old said the pair argued about an earlier incident at a bar and Baker got mad and overturned her coffee table. A man was on the phone with her when he heard Baker yelling and breaking items in the background.

Baker said he was asleep and didn’t know how the items on the coffee table got broken. A deputy noted in a police report that he was extremely intoxicated.

When a deputy arrested Baker for criminal trespass, he kicked and damaged the back window of the patrol car. He then pulled down his pants and urinated on the floorboard.

Baker was being held in the detention center Monday on a $4,200 bond, according to jailors.

You don't tug on Superman's cape, you don't spit into the wind; you don't don't pull the mask off the 'ol Lone Ranger, and you don't pee in the cop car... (where is the Reverend Jackson when I need a rhyme?)

Ha...after it's cleaned the

Ha...after it's cleaned the first go around...let the cop urinate in it and have the guy clean it up again. Drunks come up with lots of ridiculous answers about urinating in the wrong place. Most of the time they don't know it and don't remember it. Yeah right.

One more reason too much

One more reason too much cosumption of Alcohol is bad. If this man had been sober not ONE of these things would have happened. (probably) I used to drink a little. A lot in College. Most of us did. I must admit we never got in trouble with the police. When my wife and I were dating we drank a little. After we got married we drank a little on weekends. For some reason after we'd been married one year (No kids yet) somehow it just kind of faded away. Now we never drink. We cook with alcohol but I lost my taste for it and she said it messed with her sininuses. Either way now we just smoke crack and everthing is fine.
Please Augusta Chronicle my last sentence is a joke. I have smoked pot but not since around 1982.
The drugs out there now are so much different then when my wife and I were "partying".
Now you can go out and may end up dying from some of the poison that's beeing sold to children and adults.
It's such a horrible tragedy. I have no answers for today's youths.

Shrimp, how many times are

Shrimp, how many times are people picked up for being over served or consuming too much on their own and you don't hear about this because they don't do it? Get real. Yep, at the very least he needs to clean it and a week of cleaning the drunk cells at the jail would also help.

There were times in College

There were times in College when i would look outside to see if my car was there. I didn't remember driving it home.
I was a very lucky man that I didn't kill someone back then. I thank God every day for protecting my foolish butt back then!

okay judge; don't turn him

okay judge; don't turn him back loose on the streets. You see his actions and protests to authority. Give him a long sentence and see if he can kick his way out of the steel bars.
