Bottle of urine poker bet leads to assault conviction

The trouble started with a bet over a bottle of urine.

Brian Hamedl was playing poker in an all-night game with Kyle Tarboro at a Bethlehem Township home on April 1, 2010, when he told Tarboro he had urine stored in his vehicle that Tarboro could use to cheat on a drug test.

They bet $300 on whether Hamedl actually had the urine, and when the poker game wrapped up, Tarboro demanded the money or the urine.

When Hamedl told him the bet was absurd, Tarboro allegedly delivered a beating that left Hamedl in the hospital for four days. A Northampton County jury found Tarboro guilty of simple assault.
