A judge in New York City Criminal Court issued a warrant for the arrest of Robert Durst, an estranged member of the Durst real estate family, after he failed to show up at a court hearing today.

Robert Durst was charged last year with allegedly violating the terms of the restraining order Douglas has against him. He was accused of approaching Douglas’ home at 413 West 43rd Street on June 2 and staring into a surveillance camera. Robert had been ordered in April 2012 to stay away from his estranged brother.

Steve Rabinowitz, a defense attorney for Robert Durst, told the New York Post he could not arrive at court due to undisclosed “medical issues.” The arrest warrant means that Durst could be sent to jail if he is charged with another offense. The judge will likely drop the warrant if Durst attends his next pretrial hearing slated for November, according to the newspaper.

The 71-year-old millionaire was also arrested in July for allegedly exposing himself and urinating on a cash register at a CVS in Houston. Police said he paid for his prescription prior to exposing himself, as previously reported. [NYP]Mark Maurer
