Mark Wray brings pissing on his wife's head into annals of domestic-violence history

Domestic-violence charges typically involve sadly common bad behavior: punching, kicking and so on.

But the ones filed against 29-year-old transient Mark Wray are considerably more unusual. Among other things, he's accused of pissing on his wife's head.

At about 11:15 p.m. on Tuesday, says Boulder Police spokeswoman Sarah Huntley, officers responded to a call from a convenience store near a Highway 36 on-ramp from a woman who identifies herself as Wray's common-law wife. The woman, also a transient, told police she'd been sitting on the ground flying a sign asking for money when she and Wray got into an argument.

Yes, they'd been drinking -- but what happened next still comes as a surprise.

"As they continued to argue, the suspect unzipped his pants and peed on her head," Huntley says. "She stood up and ran from him, and he grabbed her backpack and threw it in a creek."

For this behavior, Wray was arrested on suspicion of indecent exposure, for unsheathing himself; tampering, for the backpack-hurling; plus harassment and domestic violence.

These are all domestic-violence-related charges, Huntley emphasizes, with the urination falling under the umbrella of physical harassment in this case.

"It is an unusual allegation," Huntley acknowledges, "but it isn't one we consider to be a joke. She was very upset by this, and it's clearly a crime."

One that turned this particular shower into something far from golden.
