Baltimore County Councilman Douglas Riley had some fun last night with a new law with a serious intent: It aims to crack down on rowdy college students by banning public urination.
In no way, said Riley, R-4th, was the law intended to prevent Boy Scouts, or golfers, from heeding nature's call when they are nowhere near a proper toilet.
But seriously, folks, Riley's measure carries a possible $100 fine and 30 days in jail for offenders.
Until last night, the county had no law banning urinating in zTC public. People who did so were charged with disorderly conduct.
