Man accused of throwing urine in deputy's face

Posted: Updated:

CECILIA, KY (WAVE) - A Cecilia man is charged with felony assault after throwing urine on a Hardin County sheriff's deputy trying to serve warrants, according to authorities.

Law enforcement officials said Clarence C. Skees, 77, refused to open the door when two deputies arrived at his home on Cecil Avenue Monday afternoon to serve two bench warrants for failing to appear for hearings in Hardin District Court. The deputies opened a window and saw a man who appeared to be sleeping on a bed, according a citation. A deputy got no response when he again asked Skees to come to the door, so the deputy entered the home through the window. As he approached the bedroom, Skees jumped in front of the deputy and threw a liquid in his face, according to the citation.

Investigators said Skees told the deputies the liquid consisted of his urine mixed with vinegar. He then allegedly fought the deputies as he was detained and placed in a cruiser.

Hardin County Sheriff Charlie Williams said the liquid did, in fact, appear to be urine. A sample was being tested to confirm.

Williams said as a precaution, both deputies were sent to Hardin Memorial Hospital for blood tests.

Skees was lodged at the Hardin County Detention Center in lieu of a $25,000 cash bond.

Jail officials said the bench warrants were related Skees' two previous arrests this summer. In June, Skees was arrested on a charge of third-degree criminal trespassing. He was arrested again on July 27 for second-degree disorderly conduct.
