Public urination leads to pot case

Jamarcus Wilson

It began with men and women getting out of a limo and urinating in a gas station parking lot.

It ended with a convicted drug dealer getting the brunt of a police officer's open-handed strikes before being arrested.

Jamarcus Wilson, 29, was arrested Sunday on charges of felony possession of marijuana and misdemeanor resisting arrest and public intoxication.

Wilson's arrest came on the heels of Three Rivers Ambulance Authority medics spotting men and women in an SUV limo relieving themselves in the lot of the Speedway gas station at Getz Road and West Jefferson Boulevard.

When officers arrived, Wilson was outside the limo and tried to run.

At one point he reached into his coat pocket, causing an officer to believe he might have a weapon, according to a Fort Wayne Police Department report.

This officer caught him, but Wilson struggled.

The officer gave Wilson a forearm to the shoulder and then an open hand to the head, subduing him, the report said.

"You don't know who you're messing with," Wilson said in the report. "You've done it now."

Wilson had previously been convicted of dealing cocaine in 2006, according to Indiana Department of Correction records.
