A tricycle driver landed in jail after taking a leak beside a road in Pasay City Saturday night.
Initial police report said authorities were patrolling the city streets as part of their anti-criminality drive when they noticed the tricycle driver emptying his bladder at the sidewalk of Williams Street.
Urinating in public places is a minor offense prohibited by city ordinances in Metro Manila so the police accosted the driver.
When the driver was frisked, a knife was found in his possession. That made him liable for the criminal charge of illegal possession of bladed weapon.
His only consolation now is he could use the comfort room in jail whenever nature calls.
