The man to your right is 56-year-old Homer Gambler and he has a pissing problem. The problem isn't that he can't piss, it's that he pisses "wherever" he wants, no matter who's watching, and it's landed him in a bit of trouble.
Gambler's most-recent arrest was Saturday, when, while taking a quick nap in front of an apartment building, he pissed in front of a resident and her 4-year-old daughter.
The woman, according to court documents obtained by New Times, walked out of her apartment at 1046 West Polk Street in Phoenix around 6 p.m. to find Gambler napping in front of the building.
Admittedly drunk, when Gambler saw the two walk out of the apartment, he rolled over onto his side, whipped out his junk, and started pissing in front of the two victims.
The woman and the child were standing in their driveway about 15 feet away.
As many would do if they found a drunk man engaged in a mid-nap piss in front of their apartment, the woman called police, who came and arrested Gambler.
Gambler doesn't have a home, doesn't have a job, but he does have a history of exposing himself to the public, court docs claim, which is part of the reason he's been denied bail.
Gambler told police he'd been drinking prior to his public piss and that he frequently urinates in public.
In fact, when asked by police, Gambler said he just pisses "wherever."
He was booked into the Fourth Avenue Jail on charges of indecent exposure, and exposing himself to a minor.
