Remember Not To Pee On The Alamo

Daniel Athens, 23, was sentenced to 18 months in jail Monday for relieving himself on the limestone facade of the Alamo shrine

A Texas man was sentenced to 18 months in prison on Monday for urinating on the Alamo shrine in 2012.

Daniel Athens, 23, is not eligible for parole, and will serve the entirety of this sentence as well as pay $4,000 in restitution, The Smoking Gun reports.

According to the police report, an Alamo Ranger saw Athens in an off-limits area making “the motions of putting his penis back in his pants.” The ranger then discovered a “puddle” on the 25o-year-old shrine.

Athens could have faced up to two years in prison. According to the report, urine can damage the limestone on the landmark.
