Man accused of urinating on lawn, hitting mobile home resident

NEW PORT RICHEY

Urinating on lawn leads to assault

On Nov. 28 at Walden Pond Mobile Home Park, a resident looked outside and saw a man urinating on his lawn. And on his tools. And his tiles.

The resident went outside and told the man to please stop urinating on his property.

The reply, according to police, was an obscenity from Randy Smith, who is 41 and goes by the name "Philly." He is from New Jersey.

Smith charged at the resident "in an aggressive manner" and hit him on the head so hard it split one of his eyebrows open, a police report states. Then Smith — who just got out of prison in July after more than a year's sentence for burglary — fled and was found Thursday living in the woods off U.S. 19, according to the New Port Richey Police Department.

Smith admitted to "being on the victim's property to get firewood, urinating on his property and punching him in the face," the report states.

He is charged with battery and is being held at the Pasco County jail in lieu of $150 bail.
