An Albuquerque, NM man faces disorderly conduct and indecent exposure charges after allegedly urinating on a family of three at a Metallica concert in Glendale, AZ on August 4.

12 News reports Arizona Department of Public Safety troopers arrested Daniel Francis Daddio, 44, Friday night during the show at the University of Phoenix Stadium as part of the band’s summer North American leg of their WorldWired tour in support of 2016’s “Hardwired…To Self-Destruct.”

The victim family – including a 10-year-old girl, her father and his wife - told police they "felt warm liquid washing over their backs and legs" during the event.

According to court documents, the father said he turned around and saw Daddio had exposed himself and when he confronted the man, Daddio reportedly shrugged.

According to FOX 10 Phoenix, DPS troopers say Daddio was heavily intoxicated when he was arrested and denied the incident occurred.

Daddio made his first court appearance over the weekend.

"I have to say in the 15 years I've been on the bench, this is one of the most disgusting scenarios I've ever read.. in any event, really inappropriate," said the judge.

The alleged offender was released from jail following the hearing; he is scheduled to appear in court again on August 18.

The Phoenix concert was one of the final dates on Metallica’s summer stadium tour, which will wrap up in Edmonton, AB on August 16.
