Alan D. Patton was at a public pool shortly after he was told to stay away from places where children gather.
A Northwest Side man who was arrested in June trying to collect boys' urine at a sports complex restroom was issued a criminal-trespassing warning yesterday after he was found at a public swimming pool.

Alan D. Patton, 56, of 6269 Emberwood Rd., was escorted out of a City of Hilliard pool at 3800 Veterans Memorial Dr., about 2:30 p.m.

He had just appeared in Franklin County Municipal Court that morning on the charge from June, which stemmed from his arrest at Sports Ohio on Cosgray Road.

He was allowed to remain free with the order to stay away from all public restrooms, as well as places where children gather, such as pools, movie theaters and playgrounds.

Patton, an admitted child molester, was not arrested in Hilliard yesterday but was issued a criminal-trespassing warning, according to Dublin police.

He reportedly was acting strangely, and some patrons notified the pool's managers, who recognized him from a flier that had been sent to county recreational facilities.

When Patton, a registered sex offender, was arrested on June 14 at Sports Ohio, he was trying to collect urine in a men's restroom, Dublin police said. He allegedly covered toilet seats in plastic wrap and shut off water to urinals, placing Styrofoam cups in them. He was charged with criminal mischief and released on bond that day.

From an arrest several years ago, Patton was ordered to wear a tracking device for five years so parole officers can follow his location. It was unclear last night whether he was wearing it when stopped at Sports Ohio and in Hilliard.

In 1994, Patton admitted to sexually assaulting boys ages 7 to 9 in Columbus-area public restrooms. His attorney at the time said Patton suffers from urophilia, an interest in urine for sexual gratification. Patton served four years of an eight-year term.

He also was convicted of charges such as voyeurism, public indecency and disorderly conduct in Columbus, Westerville and Gahanna in 1990, 1992, 2003 and twice in 2006.
