Urine-drinker banned from public johns

COLUMBUS, Ohio, March 20 (UPI) -- An Ohio man's drinking problem has landed him in jail, but not for alcohol abuse, officials said.

Alan David Patton, 59, allegedly has a fetish for drinking urine and he has been ordered to spend 30 days in jail and five years under house arrest for a recent bathroom-related crime, The Columbus Dispatch reported.

"I'm not certain jail time is going to do the trick for him," said Columbus Assistant City Prosecutor Joseph E. Schmansky. "It seems like what Mr. Patton really wants to do is just do the jail time and then get out and do it again."

Last month, Patton was acquitted of collecting urine from a public bathroom, but Delaware Municipal Court Judge David P. Sunderman found him guilty of criminal mischief.

Patton's criminal history dates to 1978 and includes charges of voyeurism, public indecency, criminal mischief and rape.

The judge also banned Patton from using public restrooms.
