JEFFERSON COUNTY, AL (WBRC) -

A 39-year-old Fultondale woman intentionally urinated in a patrol car, according to the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies arrested Wendie Rachelle Lawson and charged her with public intoxication, public lewdness and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.

Investigators say she went to a home in the 9300 block of Tingle Cut-off Road Wednesday night and started a fight with the homeowner.

When deputies arrived, they noticed the suspect fleeing from the back door. Deputies say she was intoxicated and unsteady on her feet.

Authorities arrested her and put her in the back of a patrol car while they took a statement from the homeowner. During that time, deputies say she began hitting her head on the bars in the back of the unit.

Authorities took her out the car to be handcuffed.

"As deputies were attempting to handcuff her, she dropped her pants and urinated," deputies said in a press release.

Investigators say Lawson began bragging bout intentionally urinating in the unit while on her way to jail. Deputies say she told them, "Well, this car ain’t new no more."

Lawson was held on a $900 bond and released once she sobered up.
