SEATTLE, Oct. 15 (UPI) -- A Seattle police spokesman said officers caught a man "mid-stream" while he was urinating on a police patrol car.

Police spokesman Jonah Spagenthal-Lee said the car was parked in a lot around 4:45 p.m. Tuesday while the officers were on foot patrol. They returned to the vehicle and allegedly found the man in "mid-stream," Seattlepi.com reported Monday.

"The man saw the officers, who told the suspect to zip up his pants and put his hands on a nearby wall so officers could pat him down," Spagenthal-Lee said. "There were no other cars parked in the lot at the time."

"As officers were talking to the man, a crowd of people gathered around them in the parking lot. Out of concern for their own safety, the officers took the suspect to the North Precinct, cited him for public urination, and released him," the spokesman said.

He said the citation carries a $27 fine.
