Early Thursday, a Kennewick police officer conducting a traffic stop at Canal and Edison got a jolt, when he spotted man standing in the outside lane of Edison, relieving himself.

The officer quickly abandoned the stop and went over to investigate. 19-year-old Nicholas Colton was found to be extremely intoxicated, and was urinating in the road. At least one car had to swerve to avoid him.

He's in the Benton County jail facing Disorderly Conduct, Urinating in Public and Minor in Possession charges.

This is one story we understand why there's not an accompanying picture.
