SAN ANTONIO, Feb. 5 (UPI) -- Authorities in San Antonio, Texas, said a man who pleaded guilty to charges of urinating on the Alamo will pay a $4,000 and could serve jail time.

Bexar County District Attorney Susan Reed announced Daniel Athens, 23, of El Paso, pleaded guilty Tuesday to a felony count of criminal mischief of a public monument or place of human burial, the San Antonio Express-News reported Wednesday.

Reed's statement, issued with the headline "Don't Whizz on the Alamo," said Athens' plea bargain states he will pay $4,000 in restitution costs to repair the limestone facade of the 250-year-old Alamo and he will face no more than 18 months in a state jail when he is sentenced in April.

Authorities said Athens ducked under a barrier chain in front of the historic church to get close enough to urinate on the Alamo's facade on the evening of April 14. He was tackled by a member of the Alamo Rangers and placed under arrest.
