Troubled Real Estate Heir Arrested In Texas

HOUSTON (July 22, 2014) Robert Durst, 71, a New York City real estate heir who admitted killing his neighbor in Texas a decade ago was facing a new charge Tuesday in Houston after he was accused of urinating on candy at a CVS drug store.

Durst was arrested Sunday after arguing with store employees and was charged with criminal mischief after urinating on at least $100 worth of candy, authorities said.

Durst’s attorney, Chip Lewis, said in a statement Tuesday that the will allegations will be addressed 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.
