    A Schaumburg man was charged Thursday after he allegedly turned in toilet water for a drug test.

    Brian J. Uchwat, 29, is behind bars and faces one count of defrauding a drug and alcohol screening test, Sheriff Keith Nygren said.

    Uchwat arrived at the McHenry County government center Wednesday as part of his probation agreement and was administered a random urine screen, Nygren said. During the screen Uchwat turned in a sample of water he removed from the toilet.

    “Any attempt by a probationer to tamper with a court-ordered urine screen is considered a serious matter and requires an immediate response," Court Services Director Phil Dailing said in a statement.

    Uchwat was arrested and remains in custody at the McHenry County Adult Correctional Facility.
