FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – A Pembroke Pines man awaiting sentencing after being found guilty of attempted first-degree murder tossed urine on a prosecutor in a Broward County courtroom, deputies said.

Albert Narvaez, 28, now faces a battery charge after tossing the urine on assistant state attorney Andrew Newman, who is the lead prosecutor in his case.

The incident happened Wednesday in Judge Susan Alspector's courtroom.

According to a Broward Sheriff's Office report, the urine went inside Newman's mouth and all over his clothes. The report didn't say where Narvaez hid the urine.

After tossing the urine, Narvaez yelled, "He pissed on me," "He told me to do it," and "F--- him."

Pictures from the Justice Advocacy Association of Broward's blog show Newman's chair and papers soaked in urine.
