Robert Durst, an estranged member of the Durst real estate family, was arrested Sunday for allegedly exposing himself and urinating on a cash register at a CVS in Houston. The 71-year-old Texas millionaire was charged with criminal mischief. Police said he paid for his prescription prior to exposing himself.

“There was no argument,” a spokesperson for the Houston Police Department told the New York Daily News. “He did not seem agitated, he did not argue with anyone. He just casually walked out of the business.”

The Durst Organization declined to comment to the newspaper on the arrest.

Earlier this month, Durst sold two buildings — one at 234 Union Avenue in Williamsburg and the other at 250 Pacific Street in Carroll Gardens — for $21.15 million, after buying them for a combined $8.65 million in 2011. Durst bought the buildings with money from his $43 million trust fund, as previously reported.

He was acquitted of murder charges in 2002 when his killing of a neighbor was deemed self-defense. [NYDN]Mark Maurer
