Asked if he was aware that he was urinating on a child's memorial, Bellace said, "To be honest with you, I don't even know how I got to the park. A friend of ours came over today to inform us that a video was posted of two scumbags urinating on Christian's memorial at his playground". This should have never happened, ' Bellace said. "It should have never happened", Bellace added.

"We apologised to [Christian's] family".
