Norman James Havatone could be labeled a sex offender for allegedly urinating on the side of a building.
A Mohave County man was arrested last week after two kids saw him pissing on the side of a building -- and he may have to register as a sex offender as a result.

Mohave County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Trish Carter tells New Times 38-year-old Norman James Havatone was spotted at a convenience store near Thomas Avenue and Route 66 in Kingman just before 2 p.m. Friday. He was pissing on the side of the building.

His piss was interrupted, though, by two kids -- ages 14 and 15 -- who were riding their bikes across a wash near the convenience store and watched him answer nature's call against the side of the building.

Police were called, and Hayatone was taken into custody. He apologized to the officers and explained that he just really had to go -- a fairly reasonable explanation. Then he got slammed with two felonies that could potentially force him to register as a sex offender.

Carter says that there were no allegations of sexual indecency, but because the kids -- who happened to ride by at the very moment Havatone happened to be pissing on the building -- were minors, the charges were upped to felonies that could potentially get Havatone labeled as a sex offender.

That decision, Carter says, is up to the courts.

Havatone, meanwhile, was booked into the Mohave County jail on two felony counts of indecent exposure.

Ima let u kno a few things.... I thank all of u who posted a comment on what u have to say. That man is my brother n i kno deep down in my heart that he would never do any thing in any way to have anything to do with a child in any sexual way!!! He has 2 children himself. And for the law to force him to register as a sex offender for relieving himself is a bunch of B.S!!! This is what happen, he did go into the store to use the restroom but they were both occupied. And we all know that when we have a little booze in your system you gotta go and sometime pretty bad, so his next best thing at the time was to go outside! Just so happen that the kids RODE BY and the cops were either called or were driving by at the time. He was with people @ the time so i hope they testify on his behalf, talk about being human and doing what your body is telling you what to do!!!! We all know that @ a gas station there is only to restrooms and if someone is dropping a duece and the other is having to takecare of a monthly thing or changing a baby who knows how long it'll be! Its misfortunate that all this is going on with my brother, nobody is perfect!!!

this is still another example of a why to never trust a clean cut short haired male with a bad right eye. look at any big city police mugshots to see more clean cut short haired male criminals in your local area. they use that clean cut short haired look to hide the evil that lurks deep down in their dark souls.

I think the "perverts" in this story are the little brats who eagerly stood by and watch the one eyed dude drain the lizard on the walll like its some freak show at the circus. Something's not right here. And I think they got the wrong suspects......

I think it was Anatole France who said "the law, in its majestic equality, forbids rich and poor alike from pissing in the street."

Wow. How the fuck did that happened? How is it "sexual indecency" if you're facing towards a wall, pants still up but the fly unzipped, your arms/hands guarding your "John" where no one can't see it, other than the piss itself. You're already a "sex offender", man? WTF?

In the "dinosaur days" people were pieces of shit but at least had some dignity about it.

The little 14 & 15 year old pieces of future adult shit who witnessed the "horror" of a guy pissing called the cops for no other reason than they were bored and thought it would be entertaining to get the "drunk injunn" in trouble. The cops, I would hope, have better things to do.

The little creeps were across a wash which would put them a good 120' from the "felony".This means they saw nothing. I have more respect for the guy peeing than for these punks.

In the future, when the little 14 & 15 y.o. dorks - I mean tykes - are bored, I have some suggestions for them... Sniffing glue.Running across Interstate 10 after sundown.Making obscene phone calls to their grandparents.Practicing the art of felatio on each other.Social networking photos of their dad sitting on the toilet.orFondling the family pet.

clean cut if you ignore the scraggly beard, mustache, wild hair and an eye that looks like it was attacked by gerbils while he was sleeping in the bushes.
