On this day in 1982, Ozzy Osbourne, dressed in future wife Sharon’s clothing was arrested for urinating on a cenotaph across the street from the Alamo buidling. Built in honor of those who died at The Alamo, Ozzy was subsequently arrested and banned from San Antonio, Texas for a decade. After many years of drug and alcohol abuse, Ozzy is sober but is still asked in interviews today about being the guy who pee’d on the Alamo!
