An Aspen man was arrested early Wednesday after being accused of urinating on the doorman of a local nightclub.

Christopher Anderson, 30, is charged with urinating in public, disorderly conduct, harassment, possession of less than one ounce of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. According to a police report, officers went to NXT at 424 E. Cooper Ave. to respond to a report of a man “urinating on the doorman.”

Police found the doorman holding a man, later identified as Anderson, in a loose bearhug hold from behind. They also saw a large wet mark on the wooden slats of the walkway in front of Kemosabe, directly above the doors in to NXT.

The doorman told police he had not allowed Anderson to enter the club, because he suspected the man was already drunk. He said Anderson walked upstairs and stood on the balcony directly above him.

Minutes later, he felt liquid falling on his head, and he said he went upstairs and found Anderson urinating through the walkway’s slats.

According to the police report, Anderson allegedly said “he had not been attempting to urinate on anyone, but that he had simply chosen to urinate in a bad location.” He was handcuffed by police and informed that he was under arrest for urinating in public.

The police officer who searched Anderson reported finding a small glass jar of a “green leafy substance” in the suspect’s pockets, which Anderson allegedly claimed was “my stash.”

Anderson allegedly told police, “That’s all I have,” after they found the glass jar, but the report also claims police found a clear baggie of the same substance, which later tested as being marijuana.

According to the police report, when officers asked Anderson why he said the jar was all he had, he told police, “I only have marijuana on me, not cocaine.”

They also allegedly found a cloth bag containing a marijuana pipe with burnt residue inside.
