The report also says after Kelly was arrested near Northwest 63rd and Shartel, he kept asking to use the restroom. The officer explained he would have to wait and then rushed to get him to the jail.

Kelly apparently couldn't wait. The report says, he urinated in the back-seat of the patrol car. He then told the officer, he was not trying to disrespect him.

On Friday, Kelly was booked into the jail on suspicion of DUI. He later posted bond. Kelly is still scheduled to be at the weekly city council meeting Tuesday morning.
