Durango, CO — Paul Andrew Kausalik, 61, was arrested earlier this month on suspicion of drunk driving. That’s not what earned him a spot here at the Dreamin’ Demon, though…he earned his 15 minutes of shame by allegedly spitting his own feces on the face of the arresting officer.
The alleged shit-spitter was pulled over on February 11, after Officer Chad Langley observed him taking a right without using his turn signal. After making contact with Kausalik, the officer detected the aroma of alcohol on his breath. Though Kausalik denied being under the influence, he reportedly blew a .142, almost three times the .05 legal driving limit in the state of Colorado. Kausalik was placed under arrest and transported to the cop shop for a formal breath test.
Upon arrival at the station, Kausalik asked to use the facilities. Officer Langley reported that he was forced to enter the shitter to wake the man twice, telling Kausalik that he couldn’t stay in the restroom all night to avoid the breath test – he needed to either take the test or choose a refusal.
Langely stated that Kausalik eventually ambled out of the bathroom, and when he did, it was apparent that he had something in his mouth. When he got about 4-feet away from the officer, he looked up from the floor, opened his mouth and took a big breath.
“As I observed what he had in his mouth, I took a step back and began turning my head as he violently spit the contents of his mouth toward my face,” officer Langley wrote in the affidavit. “I felt the matter strike the left side of my face and head.”
Kausalik also had feces on his hands, police say. Personally, I woulda beat that bastard to a bloody pulp with the closest blunt object. Officer Langley, however, refrained. Kausalik was restrained and taken to the La Plata County Jail where he was booked on suspicion of felony assault on a police officer. Formal charges are expected to be filed on March 4.
Paul Kausalik, 31-year veteran of the U.S. Postal Service, remains free on a personal-recognizance bond.Tags: assault on a police officer, Colorado, Drunk Driving, feces, spitting
