HOUSTON (AP) — A New York City real estate heir who admitted killing his neighbor a decade ago in Texas is facing a new charge in Houston that accuses him of urinating on candy at a drug store.
Authorities say 71-year-old Robert Durst was arrested Sunday after arguing with store employees. They say he was charged with criminal mischief after urinating on at least $100 worth of candy.
His attorney, Chip Lewis, said in a statement Tuesday that they will address the allegations in court.
In 2001, Durst was arrested as a fugitive and admitted killing his neighbor and dumping the remains in Galveston Bay. He claimed self-defense and was acquitted of homicide charges.
Durst's family runs The Durst Organization, a privately held billion-dollar real estate company that owns several New York skyscrapers.
