WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) — A homeless Aspen, Colo., man who was given a bus ticket by an anonymous donor to go find a job in North Dakota's oil patch ended up in the Williams County jail soon after he arrived in Williston.

The Bismarck Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/vRfNJT ) that 32-year-old Jimmy Baldwin Jr. was arrested on Thursday for allegedly urinating outside two strip clubs in Williston.

Police say after Baldwin was cited and released after a disorderly conduct arrest, a second call came in later that evening and officers took Baldwin to the emergency room. Police say Baldwin refused treatment and was disorderly at the hospital.

Baldwin left Aspen last week when the director of a homeless shelter found a donor to put up the $190 for a bus ticket to North Dakota.
