Convicted urine collector in trouble again

An Ohio man whose fetish-driven actions led Ohio to pass a law banning the collection of bodily fluids may be headed back to jail.

Alan David Patton, 59, is awaiting trial for allegedly installing urine-collection devices in a Lewis Center, Ohio, fast-food restaurant, The Columbus Dispatch reported.

He was convicted in 2009 of charges related to collecting other people's urine in his hometown of Dublin, Ohio, according to the newspaper.

The registered sex offender is accused of violating his bond conditions for the more recent case, the Dispatch reported. He faces as long as eight months in jail and $1,500 in fines if convicted, it said.

    I don't think he has to worry too much. I'm sure his lawyer and the prosecutor will be able to agree on a pee bargain.

    This is sick. This man is mentally ill and this story reads like it's making light of a zoo animal that's "at it again." Really, CNN... would you post mugshots and updates of people battling cancer? HIV? Yeah. This is why the stigma of mental illness will take eons to lift. Not saying what he did wasn't wrong, but this man needs help, not public humiliation.

    Mimi: when this gentleman kidnaps a little girl, since society is putting the clamp down on him, so he can make her pee in his face everyday, then what would be the bleeding heart, pitiful opinion here?

    With everyone taking medication for something who knows what this guys ultimately consuming? I guess that's why he prefers young boys urine. He'd probably developed breasts from birth control pills out there if he drank women's urine, and I'm sure that wouldn't help his mental state either.
    If he's that desperate, why not craiglist to buy it. Not illegal and for someone out there it's money for nothing.

    @Tiny: That is not the question. The question is: To pee or not to pee, that is the question. Shakespere 1800 something.

      William Shakespeare was born on 23 April 1564and died on 23 April 1616.
      Unless your referring to another William Shakespeare who suffered from Urolagnia, and paraphrased the original Shakespeare works with urine references. If so, Let's here some more.

    Can someone tell me WHY he collected the urine? What does he do with it? And how do you collect urine at a fast food restaurant without people knowing you are doing it?

      "Armstrong began urine therapy after a long and agonizing journey in which doctor after doctor proved unable to cure him of his TB symptoms. On the contrary, his condition only worsened. He decided to try urine therapy for two reasons. First of all, a quotation from the Bible stimulated his curiosity: "Drink water from your own cistern, flowing water from your own well." (The Book of Proverbs 5:15) Secondly, he had childhood memories of his mother smearing urine on his face which was swollen from a bee sting, and of his grandfather treating animals with urine. Recently, a lot of books have been published on urine therapy, especially in Germany, and some of those books have been written by regular doctors." Your Own Perfect Medicine by Martha Christy
      In this extraordinary how-to book, Martha Christy examines research findings and testimonials relating to urine therapy, and includes step-by-step instructions to using urine therapy at home.
