PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT)-- When you gotta go, you gotta go.

But, it's where a man went that landed him in jail.

On Saturday afternoon Paragould police arrested John Posey after they say he urinated in the middle of Radio Shack, 2509 W. Kingshighway.

According to the police report, the 64-year-old Paragould man caused $795.25 in damages to the carpet, a 32" TV, two Bluetooth sound bars, a microphone mixer and two level mounts. 

Officer Kenneth Hall stated Posey admitted to urinating in the store.

When asked why, Posey reportedly told the officer "I had to pee bad."

Hall said Posey had bloodshot eyes and was unsteady on his feet.  Posey also "smelled of intoxicants," according to the incident report.

Hall asked Posey why he didn't use the store's bathroom.

"Stores usually won't let you," Posey reportedly said.  "So, I didn't ask."

Posey was arrested on a charge of public intoxication and criminal mischief.  He was taken to the Greene County Jail to await a bond hearing.
