ST. PETERSBURG — A man was arrested early Saturday morning, charged with urinating in the ice chest of a St. Petersburg club.

St. Petersburg's Michael Williams, 28, was arrested at 260 First nightclub in downtown St. Petersburg and charged with disorderly conduct, a misdemeanor.

About 2:30 a.m., Williams was intoxicated and causing a "disturbance" by urinating inside the ice chest that arrest records the say is "used to distribute ice throughout the establishment." When security officers tried to kick him out, he "actively resisted" them.

Williams was also charged with misdemeanor marijuana possession after officers found less than half an ounce in a plastic bag in his back pocket.

Court records show Williams was released Saturday after posting $400 bail.

The club was hosting a "First Friday" event the night Williams was arrested, an event for which the style is "trendy with a touch of class," the club advertises.
