A patron at Yard House was carried out in cuffs Friday night after peeing in a potted plant in front of other bar-goers and employees, Palm Beach Gardens police report.

Mark Edward Hanna, 45, was smoking with a group of people on the patio at Yard House, at Downtown at the Gardens, when he “exposed himself” and urinated in a nearby plant.

The manager called police and demanded Hanna be arrested, the arrest report states.

Police initially asked Hanna why he urinated in the plant, but he refused to answer. Later at the police station, Hanna apologized to officers.

“I’m sorry, I know what I did was wrong,” he said, according to the arrest report. “I shouldn’t have done that.”

Hanna, who has no criminal history in Palm Beach County, now faces an indecent exposure charge — a first-degree misdemeanor sexual offense.

Hanna was released from the Palm Beach County Jail on Saturday afternoon.
