Remember our handy man, Darryl Marlow, who was arrested last week for aggressivley touching people?

It seems he's insistent on being Chicago's Number One nuisance.

Last week, the 54-year-old was arrested for allegedly touching customers and aggressively panhandling outside Tavern on Rush (1031 N Rush St).

A mere five days later, police were called back to the Gold Coast restaurant, reports the Sun-Times.

And guess who they found!

Darryl Marlow, urinating in public.


Worse yet, we doubt he had washed his hands before touching restaurant patrons last week.

The cops arrested Marlow for the 243rd time, according to the Sun-Times.

While many of Marlow's previous convictions were minor—including theft and criminal trespass—at what point does a judge say enough is enough? The threat of arrest obviously isn't working for this man. Is a harsher punishment necessary and, for that matter, even possible?
