Former Mobil CEO's son is reportedly homeless and facing charges

A homeless Florida man arrested for allegedly stealing a parking device last week is the son of former Mobil CEO William P. Tavoulareas, The Miami Herald reported.

The 56-year-old Palm Beach man was arrested on charges of felony and assigned a public defender, but is thought to have millions in his trust fund, according to the Herald.

His brother, Peter Tavoulareas, told the newspaper his sibling is dealing with mental health issues and hopes the judge proposes treatment rather than putting him back on the streets.

"The family has tried to help him countless times. We tried to have him move in with family, but it appears he just wants to be homeless," Peter Tavoulareas told the Herald.
