And on this day in...
1982 – Ozzy Osbourne was arrested for urinating on the Alamo Cenotaph, in San Antonio, Texas. He claimed to have mistaken the memorial for a pile of rubble (the Cenotaph is a 60 foot high sculpture). The fact he was wearing a dress at the time, Sharon having confiscated his clothes to stop him going out, probably didn't help.
