Ozzy Osbourne Returns to Alamo for First Time Since Drunkenly Peeing on It in 1982

Rock legend was previously banned from historical structure after public intoxication arrest

Ozzy Osbourne has returned to The Alamo, but this time he didn’t need to take a bathroom break outside.

The Prince of Darkness visited the historical building on Friday for the first time since he was arrested outside of it in 1982 for public intoxication and urination.

Ozzy toured The Alamo with his son Jack as part of the younger Osbourne’s new History Channel series.

“This is my first time here, not his,” Jack joked in front a massive crowd of fans waiting outside to greet the rock star when they arrived.

“I think [Ozzy] was a little overwhelmed,” tour guide Steve Hardin said of the crowd to the San Antonio Express-News. “The plan was for them to just fly in under the radar, for Jack and Ozzy to be like regular tourists.”

The Osbournes also visited San Antonio’s City Hall so that Jack could take a look at Ozzy’s 1982 arrest report with District 1 Councilman Roberto Treviño.

Before a show at San Antonio’s HemisFair Arena in 1982, Ozzy drunkenly urinated on the Alamo Cenotaph, a 60-foot monument across the street from The Alamo itself.

He was arrested and subsequently banned from performing in the city of San Antonio for life. However, the ban was lifted in 1992 after Ozzy donated $10,000 to the Daughters of the Republic of Texas.
