(Newser) – Here’s something you don’t see every day—a multimillionaire peeing on a candy display in a CVS. That’s what Robert Durst is accused of doing Sunday in the upscale Texas shopping district Rice Village, KHOU reports. "He got his prescription, paid for it, exposed himself, urinated on the register and walked out of the business," a Houston police spokesperson tells the New York Daily News. “There was no argument. He did not seem agitated, he did not argue with anyone." Durst, 71, has been charged with criminal mischief.

The alleged incident is the latest in the headline-making life of the New York real estate heir. In 2002, he was acquitted in the killing of a 71-year-old friend whom he admitted shooting. Durst successfully claimed self-defense, though he served time for evidence tampering because he dismembered the body and tossed it in Galveston Bay. Prior to that, he was the main suspect in his wife's 1982 disappearance and in the murder of a friend of hers who talked to police in 2000. At some point along the way, Durst began cross-dressing in an apparent bid to evade police, says the Daily News. “I think this is the last straw," a CVS customer tells KHOU.

71 sounds like Alzheimer's, happens more than you think.

I hope they charged him for all the merchandise he ruined and for the clean up. That is just gross no matter what or who you are. Not to mention all the legal charges associated with exposing himself in public.

A clear case of Affluenza. When you have enough money, you can't be expected to care about people or anyone's property.
