Christie Brinkley doesn't exactly believe in the phrase "when you gotta go, you gotta go."
The 62-year-old supermodel took to Instagram on Monday, July 4, to respond to reports that she had an altercation with a woman, identified as Erica Remkus, who started urinating outside her Hamptons, New York home. "I know it's Independence Day but that does not mean 'free to pee' in front of my guests and me at my fireworks gathering," she wrote. "Maybe the trespasser should celebrate 'Depends Day' as she apparently thinks she lives in 'The Land of the Pee', as I was forced to hose down her mess after she urinated in my yard all the while throwing things at me."
Brinkley added, "My wish for everyone on this Fourth of July is, may you live in the Land of the Free from belligerent drunken stalkers with weak bladders and foul mouths. (That's not too much to ask, right?) Peace! I'll raise my glass of Bellissima Prosecco to that. Cheers Happy 4th to everyone!"

Remkus tells ET that she was not drunk, nor did she even recognize the supermodel at first, but was just trying find a bathroom for hours after a fireworks show, before deciding to urinate on what she says is public property. "The fact is she sprayed me for no reason," Remkus says. "Because she said I was on her beach. She sprayed me multiple times. Not for peeing. For being on her 'public beach.' She didn't 'spray a peeing woman.' She sprayed a woman fully clothed standing on a public beach."
Southhampton Police tell ET that there is no indication at all that Brinkley hosed down Remkus, but rather just the area of which she allegedly urinated.
Remkus claims it was Brinkley that was the aggressor, and she's considering pressing charges. "She said, 'It's my rocks, it’s my sand. You have to go,'" she recalls.
"If you were a real local, you’d invite me in to use your bathroom," Remkus says she told Brinkley before squatting down to pee. "She was legitimately harassing me with her garden hose."
The 36-year-old woman claims Brinkley then called the police. According to the incident report obtained by ET, cops did not find any criminal activity at the scene and asked both parties to go their separate ways.
Despite all the drama, Brinkley still managed to enjoy her Fourth of July, and later shared a photo of fireworks.
