Man’s Urine Fetish Lands Him in Jail

A man who seems to be addicted to urine has been jailed for 30 days and prohibited from using any public bathrooms.

Municipal Judge David P. Sunderman sentenced 59-year-old Alan David Patton of Northwest Side, Columbus, Ohio,on Friday, following his conviction last month of criminal mischief, a charge that stemmed from his fetish of collecting urine. Patton was acquitted on the charge of collecting bodily fluid, but he couldn’t escape the criminal mischief charge.¬†Patton, who, over the years, has been convicted of other bathroom-related offenses, including voyeurism and public indecency, was also meted a five-year house arrest for his refusal to attend counseling for the earlier convictions. He will be wearing an electronic monitoring device for the duration of the house arrest.

Patton spent 4 1/2 years in jail back in 1993 when he was found guilty of sexually harassing a boy while collecting urine at the Magic Mountain Fun Center. The jail time proved not enough for Patton to reform as he was again caught collecting urine in 2009, this time at the SportsOhio in Dublin. He was sentenced 60 days for the criminal mischief in the Dublin incident.
