MADISON, Wis. -

Madison police said an incident reported last week involving a 60-year-old man who allegedly threw urine at police happened at a detox center.

Julius A. Wilson, 60, of Madison, is accused of throwing urine at two police officers and a treatment facility worker, according to a release from Madison police.

Police said the incident occurred at 1:27 a.m. on April 7, while the officers and a worker were trying to subdue Wilson at the facility on Industrial Drive. One of the officers and the facility worker said they were hit in the face with urine when the man threw a plastic receptacle at them. The other officer got urine on his uniform.

Wilson tried to punch the officers and grabbed the collar of one of the officers, damaging the officer's uniform, police said.

The officer and the staff member were treated at a local hospital for exposure to the urine, officials said.

Wilson has been arrested on tentative charges of two counts of discharge of bodily fluids at a public safety worker, two counts of disorderly conduct and one count of resisting an officer.
