Bengals-Steelers fan arrests: Hitting a woman, 'urination altercation'

The Steelers-Bengals wild-card game was marred by questionable hits and personal-foul penalties, but the rule-breaking wasn't confined to the field. Fans threw bottles at Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger as he headed to the locker room on a cart late in the third quarter...

... And one fan wearing a Bengals hoodie was arrested for, well, using the guy in front of him as his own private toilet. Via

Martin Cooke, 33, of Germantown, Kentucky, was arrested after police said he urinated on the person in front of him in Paul Brown Stadium. Cooke, who wore a Bengals hoodie, is accused of fighting with the man and punching him in the face, court documents state. He is facing disorderly conduct and assault charges. Cooke is scheduled to appear in court Monday.

The official term for peeing on someone you also happened to punch in the face? Urination altercation, according to police records.

But there's more.

According to WCPO, in addition to the aforementioned peeing bandit, five other men were arrested following the game -- two Bengals fans and three Steelers fans -- on charges that ranged from carrying a fake ID, underage consumption of alcohol and theft; throwing a beer can at a Bengals fan and head-butting a man in the face. Two of the men were charged with striking a woman in the face, and another allegedly struck a woman in the head as he was being escorted out of the stadium by authorities.
