To pee, or not to pee?

One Seattle police officer’s answer to that question could land him in, er, hot water.

Seattle police say they have forwarded a surveillance video reportedly showing an officer urinating on the side of a building to the department’s Office of Professional Accountability and the officer’s commander.

The video, posted on a blog Wednesday morning, was shot behind a “well-known European performance-car shop,” according to the blog.

The Times learned of the video after it was posted on the KING 5 website.

The video shows a patrol car backing in behind the building. The officer is seen getting out of the car and walking to a spot just below the camera. While the officer is apparently relieving himself, he is seen looking up and muttering something once he spots the camera. He then moves out of camera range.

Urinating in public is an infraction in Seattle.
