And they aren't his first urinating infractions.
Police say a Framingham man was arrested twice over the weekend for crimes involving when and where he decided to answer his call to nature. Mark A. Thompson, 45, was first arrested Friday at 5 p.m., and then Sunday at 2:54 p.m., police spokesman Lt. Paul Shastany said. The first incident occurred at the MetroWest Medical Center's Framingham Union campus. Police went to the hospital for a report of an out-of-control patient in the emergency room. ``They went in and they could hear a loud, yelling voice, coming from a room,'' said Shastany. ``A nurse quickly exited the room, and she said, `He's urinating all over the place!' The officers entered the room, and there was an angry security guard who complained that Thompson had urinated on him.” Thompson, who was drunk, was arrested and charged with disturbing the peace and disorderly conduct, Shastany said. He was released later that night after posting $40 bail, but he had another run-in with police on Sunday. Officer Phil Hurton went to Hollis Street for a report of a man urinating in the street. He recognized Thompson, who has been arrested at least four other times in Framingham this year. ``Two witnesses said Thompson came up behind them on Hollis Street and asked them for cigarettes. They said no,'' said Shastany. ``He then took his pants down and started urinating right in front of them, onlookers and children.'' Thompson, of 3 Merchant Road, was arrested and charged with open and gross lewdness. In October, Thompson was arrested for urinating on an Irving Street building in front of Police Chief Steven Carl. Thompson pleaded not guilty in Framingham District Court yesterday and was ordered held on $500 bail. He is due back in court on Jan. 23 for a pretrial conference.
