Robert Durst acquitted of killing neighbor, charged with urinating in pharmacy

HOUSTON, TX – Galveston’s cross-dressing millionaire and ultimate bad neighbor, Robert Durst, is back in the news, only this time no one is dead.

But if what cops say is true, then he’s back to his nasty old self.

Cops say durst went to a CVS pharmacy on Kirby Drive near Rice Boulevard, paid for a prescription, exposed himself, then urinated on the cash register before walking out.

The 71-year-old Durst is a real-estate heir who’s best known around these parts as the guy who beat a murder rap in 2003 after he admitted to killing his neighbor in self-defense, cutting up the body, and tossing everything into Galveston Bay.

He served one year in prison in 2004 for evidence tampering and bail jumping.

But he soon ended back in jail for parole violation. He’s been free since 2006, wheeling and dealing in the New York real estate market.

Now he’s back in town and facing a charge of criminal mischief for relieving himself in public, which is another way of saying “you’re in trouble.”
