Lawyer Who Doused Urine Faces Trial


— December 8, 2003

A federal judge is to resume hearing testimony Monday in a case involving an angry lawyer who doused urine on office equipment in retaliation against a co-worker.
Gregory L. Fronimos, 49, is being prosecuted by the federal government for “malicious mischief” to government property.

His attorney, Michael McCrum, wants the judge to dismiss the case because he does not want embarrassing allegations that detail Fronimos’ actions to be made public.

Fronimos reportedly caused more than $1,000 in damage to three telephones, a computer keyboard, and a computer last year. . . .

[F]ederal prosecutors pursued charges after Fronimos confessed to his bosses at Brooks City-Base that he poured urine on the office equipment of a co-worker several times.

A court-filed Air Force memo said Fronimos was upset because a co-worker allegedly referred to him in a profane manner and disparaged him to other employees.

The incidents led to his resignation as a seven-year Air Force reservist. He also quit his job as a lawyer with the Air Force Center for Environmental Excellence in late January.
