WBRE/WYOU: FAIRVIEW TOWNSHIP, LUZERNE COUNTY. While waiting in the Geisinger parking lot, a woman is accused by police of urinating on the ground and dancing while holding a beer.
Officers were summoned to Geisinger’s parking lot at about 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday for a report of a lady urinating there.
Erin Pugh, a 50-year-old New York resident, was reportedly spotted by responding officers sitting in a car while blasting music.
According to their report, Pugh got out of the car, poured herself a beer, and started dancing in the parking lot right in front of the police.
According to the affidavit, Pugh shouted at the police to leave her alone while she waited for a loved one who was inside at a doctor’s appointment and refused to produce identification when asked to do so.
The police said they found an open 30-pack of beer and many empty beer cans in the front seat of Pugh’s automobile. After being pulled from the vehicle, Pugh allegedly exclaimed at the police, “You are not (expletive) arresting me,” as reported in court records.
Pugh is facing charges of public intoxication, indecent exposure, open lewdness, and disorderly behavior. She posted a bond in the amount of $20,000 and was taken to the Luzerne County Correctional Facility.
