Hopefully Jersey City Councilman Steve Lipski treats his constituents better than he treats Washington, DC concert goers.
Lipski was arrested Friday night at a Washington nightclub after he allegedly urinated on a crowd during a concert by a Grateful Dead tribute band, the Daily News reports.
Apparently, this wasn’t the first run-in Lipski has had with the 9:30 Club's staff, who described Lispki to the paper as never having peed on anyone before Friday, but of typically being “really belligerent and drunk.”
Lipski, who ran for mayor in 2004, is also the Executive Director/School Administrator/CEO of CREATE Charter School.
While Jersey City residents have seen their fair share of corrupt officials carted off over the years, Lipski adds to a growing list of officials who have been charged with embarrassing but non-corruption related offenses.
In 2006, Mayor Jerramiah Healy was arrested for disorderly conduct in Bradley Beach. Earlier this year, Deputy Mayor Kabili Tayari was charged with failing to return a rental car.
