BROADVIEW HEIGHTS, Ohio (WJW)– A mail carrier with the United States Postal Service, accused of urinating on a mailbox in a condominium development in Broadview Heights on Sept. 3, is now facing a charge of public indecency.
Broadview Heights police say the mailman is due in Broadview Heights Mayor’s Court next week.
Body camera from the Broadview Heights Police Department shows the officer giving the citation to the carrier. The mailman told the officer the allegations are not true and said he spilled a bottle of water.
The officer, however, said there was enough evidence to charge him.
According to a Broadview Heights police report, a person living in the area said she saw the postal carrier urinating on the mailbox. She confronted him and he denied the allegation. She called police.
“She could see his pants unzipped and could smell the urine,” the police report stated. “Patrolman Cloonan could also smell the urine in the area when he checked and could see the fresh urine on the mailbox.”
