Urinating in canal angers Venice mayor
The mayor of Venice, Italy, says he lectured and called the police on a man he caught urinating into a canal.
Mayor Massimo Cacciari said he came upon a Portuguese tourist urinating into the canal Monday night, ANSA reported Tuesday.
I saw a gentleman peeing in a canal and took the liberty of telling him that he probably wouldn't do so in his living room, Cacciari said.
I then called the city police to clear things up.
Police fined the man $70.
