It would appear that maybe Alan Patton may have some sort of problem. For the second time in less than a month, the Ohio man was caught at the sports themed fun park, Sports Ohio, trying to collect urine in the men’s room. To drink.
Alan D. Patton, 56, of 6269 Emberwood Rd. on the Northwest Side, was trying to collect urine in a men’s restroom at Sports Ohio, 6314 Cosgray Rd., when he was arrested June 14, Dublin police say.
Patton was found in a men’s restroom where he had allegedly covered toilet seats in plastic wrap, shut off water to urinals and placed Styrofoam cups in them. Sports Ohio employees told police that they recognized Patton as the man who had tampered with another men’s restroom there a week earlier.
Patton, a registered sex offender, admitted in 1994 to sexually assaulting four boys ages 7 and 9 in public restrooms in Columbus. At the time, Patton’s attorney said Patton suffers from urophilia, an interest in urine for sexual gratification.
Urophilia, apparently, can cause you to try and steal other people’s urine, or it can cause you to this at a horsetrack. Either way, big thumbs down. It’s rumored Patton has said that urine is sterile and that he likes the taste. Or maybe that was Patches O’Houlihan. I can’t remember now.
