"Don't Whizz on the Alamo." That's the headline on a press release from Bexar County District Attorney Susan Reed announcing a guilty plea from an El Paso man charged with Criminal Mischief of Public Monument or Place of Human Burial.
Twenty-three-year-old Daniel Athens was caught urinating on a wall at the Alamo on a Saturday night in April of 2012.
Athens originally was charged with misdemeanor public intoxication and urinating in public, but the district attorney's office later pursued the state jail felony charge of "Criminal Mischief of a Public Monument or Place of Human Burial.
As part of a plea bargain agreement, Athens will face no more than 18 months in jail and restitution of $4,000 to repair the damage to the Alamo.
