Updated: June 25, 2014 2:15AM



A wheelchair-bound nursing home resident was charged with battery after allegedly attacking four staff members at Midlothian’s Plaza nursing home by squeezing his urine bag in their faces June 17.

Police said 52-year-old James Brown first removed the leg support of his wheelchair and struck an employee in the face. He then grabbed a bag of his own urine, squeezing and swinging it, causing the liquid to squirt into the faces of four female staff members, police said.

During the incident, Brown also knocked down three full carts of dinner and drinks in the dining room, according to a police report.

All of the staff members insisted Brown be arrested. He was charged with five counts of battery.

Brown next is due in court July 17 at the Cook County courthouse in Markham.
