Now, you've heard this story a hundred times. And not just from my pie-hole.
I was nabbed for under-aged drinking. I had a beer on the table, but I was debilitated by a really stupid substance that I haven't touched in over ten years. Hint: It's a good idea to get this stuff out of your system by age 25, at the latest. That said, not the best way to go down to the drunk tank (though I sobered up pretty quickly). It was a synchronized raid that hit Murphy's, the Antenna, and Newby's. At least 40 people were arrested, including a couple of people on this BBS. I was pulled out of the club by the elastic of my boxer shorts and had a 1/4 of bad weed in my back pocket that they didn't find. i had nerve damage in my left wrist for three months because I had to fish it out and dispose of it properly...with cuffs on. (Un)funny thing was, I was in my last week of diversion for a court summons (for a minor incident) from 11 months and three weeks prior. I had forgotten about the diversion, which is entry-level probation in case anyone was wondering. Imagine my surprise when, two months after the Antenna ordeal, I was sitting at my telemarketer's job one Saturday and a couple of sheriff's deputies show up to arrest me. Violation of probation. This time, my name got screwed up in processing (as "Forles") and I spent two extra days at 201 in the pods.
