Robert Durst was arrested in New Orleans Saturday night on a first-degree warrant related to a homicide investigation, according to a report. Durst does not plan to challenge his extradition to Los Angeles, his lawyer said.

Real estate scion and recent HBO documentary subject Robert Durst was busted in the Big Easy Saturday night on an extradition warrant out of Los Angeles, according to local reports.

Police arrested the cross-dressing multimillionaire around 11 p.m. at the Marriott Hotel in New Orleans on a first degree warrant related to a homicide investigation, KTRK Houston reported.

The 71-year-old made headlines in 2003 when he was acquitted in the murder of his neighbor, despite admitting that he dismembered the man.

He has been back in the limelight as the subject of “The Jinx,” a six-part HBO documentary that investigates that murder, in addition to the disappearance of his wife, Kathie Durst, and the murder of Susan Berman, a friend and author killed in Los Angeles in 2000.

Durst is the focues of an upcoming documentary series on HBO called ‘The Jinx,.’ in which he made some questionable comments like ‘No one tells the whole truth.’HBO
