Arrigone, 20, reportedly said he did not care if his urine landed on someone.

He has been charged with crimen injuria after his urine landed on taxi driver Michelle Nomgcana.

Arrigone told the court on Friday that he had seen people urinating from the balcony of the Tiger Tiger club in Claremont many times and it did not occur to him in his inebriated state to go to the toilet.

“At the time my attention was fixated on two friends who were standing next to me. They were both laughing at me. They thought I was being funny. I was significantly intoxicated that I guess I thought I was being funny,” he told the court.
