From Eyewitness News:
An apparently drunk man was arrested for shouting anti-Muslim slurs as he urinated outside a mosque in the Astoria section of Queens.
Omar Rivera was charged with criminal trespass after worshippers at the Al-Iman Mosque on Steinway Street subdued him Wednesday night.
Holding a beer bottle, Rivera burst in during evening prayers. He allegedly shouted anti-Muslim slurs, calling the worshipers "terrorists," then flashed his middle finger and urniated outside the mosque.
Two worshipers subdued him and called 911.
Rivera was charged and taken to a hospital for psychiatric evaluation.
The mosque said earlier news reports that the suspect urinated on prayer rugs was not inaccurate.
UPDATE: So apparently this may never have happened...
ASTORIA, N.Y. (WPIX) - An intoxicated man is accused of urinating outside a Queens mosque Wednesday night during a prayer session, according to New York City police.
The disturbing incident unraveled at the Iman Mosque on Steinway Street in Astoria when witnesses say Omar Rivera "came in with a beer bottle in his hands" and was "clearly very intoxicated."
The mosque released a statement Thursday refuting claims Rivera shouted anti-Muslim slurs.
They said they believe the incident was an unintentional act of intoxication and wasn't directed against the mosque or Muslim community. In addition, they claimed Rivera was not charged with criminal trespass and was instead charged with pubic urination.
Two men in the prayer group were able to subdue the man and brought him into a back room before calling authorities.
Police took Rivera to the hospital for a psychiatric evaluation. Officials at the mosque said they are offering Rivera any help he may need.
