Multi-tasking mistake

Indecent exposure. A 60-year-old man encountered police officers after an impromptu bathroom break at a local bank. A witness called police to report the man had dropped his pants "to his ankles" and urinated next to an ATM he was currently using. 

Once on the scene, the arresting officer noticed the man was "visibly intoxicated" as the man leaned on his car and tried to get his bank card from the ATM. The officer asked the man if he knew why police had been called, but the man told him no and asked for his help retrieving his card. 

The officer explained he had been called after someone urinated near the ATM, at which point the man said "I cannot lie to you, I had to pee and couldn't hold it anymore."
