A public urination incident has cost an investigative reporter his job at a TV station, TVSpy.com reports. In the incident, Rob Koebel of WTMJ-TV in Milwaukee allegedly was belligerent with police after he was reportedly seen urinating outside of an Apple store in Glendale, Wis., the story says.

According to the police report, Koebel ignored a security officer who asked him to stop urinating outside the store, and police were called. When asked to hand over his phone, Koebel allegedly said, "No, do you know who you’re messing with?," according to the story.

He also called officers derogatory names, according to the police report, the story says.

Koebel joined the NBC affliate in 2011. He was previously married to HLN anchor Christi Paul, who published a book this year called "Love Isn't Supposed to Hurt," the story says.
