Former Akron Mayor Don Plusquellic Caught Publicly Peeing on University of Akron Campus

Posted By on Thu, Aug 27, 2015 at 11:43 AM

The police report says it all. Just before midnight Wednesday, longtime Akron Mayor Don Plusquellic was caught with his dingaling in his hands, standing on some mulch and peeing into a tree on or near a University of Akron parking lot.

Via the report:

Plusquellic "turned around, zipping up his pants when confronted. Subject was rude to officers and was issued a warning. Subject told police he knew we don't do anything and figured he would give us something to do on a slow night." 

WKYC's Phil Trexler Tweeted the report out. 

In addition to representing another strange episode in Akron's tumultuous mayoral year, the incident is a striking example of how people in power do precisely what they please without punishment. 

No charges are forthcoming.
