Wisconsin man arrested for drunken driving pees on cop's head
It's bad enough that Daniel Shilts was so drunk that his car struck a pole at a Wisconsin gas station and then nearly backed into a police car. It's worse that, once he was arrested for drunken driving, he took a pee in the back of the squad car. But here's the thing: Shiltz also managed to pee on the head of the officer who arrested him. That's something he managed not to do in four previous drunken driving arrests. It also rated a felony charge -- expelling bodily substances at a public safety worker -- his lawyer managed to plea bargain away.
But still, Shiltz copped to two felony counts in a plea agreement for a year in prison. And he not even go behind bars. According to the Sheboygan Press, Shilts:
was sentenced Nov. 30 by Judge Gary Langhoff to the jail term and three years probation, according to court records released Wednesday. A three-year prison sentence was imposed and stayed, meaning Shilts will serve the prison time if his probation is revoked.
Shilts was also fined $3,599 and had his driver's license revoked for three years.
