AURORA, Ill. (WGN) -- Suburban police have charged a 21-year-old after officials said he urinated and defecated in two different jail cells while in custody.
Jose Barragan was charged with two felony counts of criminal damage after police said he damaged an Aurora Police Department jail cell.
Barragan was arrested Monday as part of a shooting investigation. Police said while Barragan was being fingerprinted, officials discovered he had cannabis concealed in his hair.
Barragan was placed in a cell while an officer completed his report. Two hours later, he began banging and kicking on the door, police said. He then put the cell’s bedsheet into the toilet and attempted to flood the cell. He was then seen urinating on the floor.
A court detection technician placed him into a different cell, where Barragan was then seen defecating on the floor and then used his hands to pick up the feces and smear it on the cell and door window.
An hour later, Barragan was released from custody without charges from the shots fired incident. He faces two charges for the incident in the jail cells - criminal damage to state property, deposit stink bomb and criminal damage to government property.
