HOUSTON (AP) - A New York City real estate heir has been freed on bond in a Houston case in which he allegedly urinated on a candy display inside a pharmacy.
Robert Durst turned himself in Wednesday afternoon on a criminal mischief charge from the weekend incident. Durst declined comment after being released Wednesday night on $5,000 bond.
Authorities say the 71-year-old Durst on Sunday argued with store employees and relieved himself on about $100 worth of candy. Houston police say the store manager knew Durst, who was later charged with the misdemeanor.
Durst in 2001 was arrested as a fugitive and admitted killing his neighbor and dumping the body parts in Galveston Bay. Durst claimed self-defense and was acquitted.
His family runs The Durst Organization, a privately held billion-dollar real estate company.
