Jay Penske -- the media mogul son of NASCAR legend Roger Penske -- was arrested in Massachusetts early this morning after allegedly urinating on a woman in a yacht club parking lot ... this according to multiple reports.  

Cops were reportedly called to the fancy schmancy Nantucket Yacht Club around 2AM Thursday morning ... after two women claimed Jay and his brother Mark assaulted them in the parking lot after breaking in to the property.

The women reportedly told police that Jay ... CEO of PMC Media ... was urinating in the parking lot ... so they decided to approach him. But when they got close, Jay allegedly turned the hose on one of the women ... and peed all over her boots.

The women told cops Jay and Mark also pushed them during the confrontation.

According to reports, Jay was arrested soon after ... while trying to run away from the club. Mark was arrested in a nearby apartment with cuts on his arm ... reportedly sustained from falling down some stairs. The brothers spent the rest of the morning in jail. They have since been released.

The women reportedly declined to press charges for assault and battery ... however the Penskes were eventually charged with breaking and entering into the Yacht Club with the intent to commit a crime. 

Aside from being the son of a billionaire, Jay owns several entertainment websites ... including Deadline.com and HollywoodLife.com.

Calls to the Penskes for comment have not been returned.

Aug. 9, 2012) Two sons of auto racing mogul Roger Penske were arrested early Thursday morning by island police for an alleged break-in at the Nantucket Yacht Club after two women claimed they had been assaulted by them on South Beach Street.

Jay Penske, 33, the CEO of the digital media company PMC who owns the IndyCar racing team Dragon Racing and the web site Deadline.com, along with his brother Mark Penske, 35, were arrested just before 2 a.m. Thursday on South Beach Street.


According to a police report, the incident was reported as an assault and battery when two women approached officers on Broad Street, claiming they had been assaulted by two men, later identified as the Penske brothers.

The report claims the Penske brothers were urinating in the parking lot, and that when she confronted Jay Penske, he “turned and continued to urinate on her boots. He then proceeded to grab her arm and push her. (The woman) also states that Mark before he ran away pushed her and they both then ran to the house on Yacht Club property" the report states.

One of the women involved in the incident, a bartender at an island restaurant who asked to remain anonymous, corroborated most of what was in the report, with a few slight variations.

In an interview Thursday afternoon with The Inquirer and Mirror, the woman said she and two friends were walking down South Beach Street when they noticed a man leaning against a car and urinating toward the sidewalk. As they pointed him out, she said, he turned toward the car, spraying urine onto her boots.

"We thought they were drunk (expletive) tourists," she said. Her friend then took out her phone and attempted to snap a photo of the man urinating on the car.

"She had her phone in her hand already and goes to take a picture so tomorrow we could say look at these guys," she said. "But the other one who was right there grabbed her hand and smashed it into her face. It happened so fast. He was a tall guy, and all I remember her saying was 'you're going to hit a girl'?"

The two men ran through a back alley toward the parking lot of the Nantucket Yacht Club, she said, and the group of women continued walking down the sidewalk where they ran into a police officer and reported the incident. At the same time, they noticed one of the Penske brothers in the parking lot, and identified him to police as one of the people involved in the incident.

Police claimed they apprehended Jay Penske attempting to run away from the club, and that they found Mark Penske at the employee apartment after he had fallen down the staircase, suffering several cuts on this right arm.

As Jay Penske was detained, the woman claimed he yelled at her "'you're not white enough'. I don't know what it meant. The cop was like, why is he saying that to you?"

In the confusion, she said, her friend who had attempted to take a photo with her cell phone and was allegedly assaulted had left the area, so police could not interview her. The responding officers told the woman they could not press assault charges without speaking with her.

But police also interviewed the occupants of the yacht club's employee apartment, and based upon those interviews, decided to file breaking and entering charges against the Penskes.

"There were three people living in the yacht club apartment and only two saw the suspects enter the house and they got startled when they were confronted," according to the report,which was written by officer John Muhr, a 20-year veteran of the Nantucket Police Department.

The Penskes are not members at the Nantucket Yacht Club, according to staff at the club.

The report states that the women later told police they did not wish to press assault and battery charges, and does not mention anything about the alleged victim having left the scene.

The brothers spent the night in the Nantucket Police Department’s lockup facility, and were arraigned Thursday morning on charges of breaking and entering in the nighttime with intent to commit a misdemeanor. Both were released on personal recognizance with pretrial hearings set for Aug. 20.

Another source said the two men had been drinking at the popular South Beach Street restaurant Lola 41, close to where the incident occurred, earlier in the evening.

The woman involved in the incident said "I can't believe he was peeing in public if he was so important," she said. "I didn't know who they are. I didn't know the Penske family was out there."

Their parents, Roger and Kathy Penske, own a waterfront home on Nantucket in Pocomo.

The Penske brothers were not available for comment, according to a person who answered the phone at their parents' home.

The "sanctioned" racing community can add this felony to their wall of shame. Rehab would ba an answer, Ashley Judd (wife of Indycar champion) might agree...then again they will all claim that morality can't be legislated.

His brother Mark was also arrested with him, one of the women just got off work as a bartentender at an upscale restaurant/bar and was sober. The Yacht Club was very clear in letting it be known the Penskes are NOT members (Hell no!). One of the women was taking a photo with her camera because they were urinating on a car! They wanted the car owner to be able to know who was responsible.
