OH man charged after trying to obtain, drink boys' urine

Posted by LS

DUBLIN, Ohio (WBNS) - A convicted sex offender faces charges after he allegedly hid inside public restrooms as part of an attempt to obtain and drink boys' urine.

According to police, Alan Patton was dicovered trying to collect urine inside a men's restroom at Sports Ohio in Dublin on June 14.

Police said that Patton, 56, had shut off water to the urinals and placed cups inside them. Police subsequently charged Patton with criminal mischief.

At the time of his arrest, Patton told officers that "he wasn't hurting anyone and that he suffers from an illness," according to a police report.

Patton, who is a registered sex offender, was first arrested in 1994 on charges of voyeurism.

After another arrest in 2006, he told Gahanna police that he suffered from urophilia - a sexual fetish involving urine. He also told police that drinking boys' urine made him feel like he was " drinking their youth."

He also told police that he had collected as many as 15 "samples" in one night.

Judge Carrie Glaeden, the judge who sent Patton to jail for probation violations a few years ago when he refused to get counseling, spoke with 10 Investigates on Monday.

10 Investigates asked Glaeden if she thought Patton was a danger to the public.

"I don't think his method of operation, at least that I'm aware of, is that he actually touches the children," Glaeden said. "But if he can't get what he wants and what he thinks he needs, I don't know how far he'll go to get that bodily fluid."

Patton, who is in custody at the Franklin County Jail, is scheduled to make his next court appearance on July 11.

Patton will not be sentenced to prison because it is not against the law to drink someone's urine without their permission.

Glaeden said she would support a law that would make it a felony to do so.
