Wealthy eccentric freed in lurid murder case now charged with urinating in drug store Published: July 24, 2014

In the upscale shopping district of Rice Village, you expect to find nice shops, good restaurants and expensive cars, but you don’t expect to find a very rich man who beat a murder rap urinating on a counter in the neighborhood drug store, KHOU reports.

Still, that’s what law enforcement authorities allege happened in the latest twist to the strange saga of Robert Durst.

Durst, the wealthy heir to a New York real estate fortune who was found not guilty in a lurid 2003 Galveston murder trial, was charged with criminal mischief for allegedly relieving himself on a checkout counter and a candy rack at the CVS pharmacy in Rice Village.
