Actor Stephen Dorff is at the centre of a public peeing scandal after snaps of the star seemingly urinating in a Los Angeles street leaked online.

The Blade star was allegedly caught on camera relieving himself in a hedge outside the city's Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel during a night out on Thursday (24Jan13).

The photo appears to show Dorff smiling for the cameras while he makes a public pit stop.

He is the latest star to be apparently caught short - actress Jaime Pressly and Twilight star Bronson Pelletier have both landed in hot water for allegedly urinating in public places.
