    Drunk and disorderly - I evacuated my stomach contents onto a police officer's shoes in the grounds of a church.

    I spent the evening in lock up and was promptly ejected at 9:00am the next morning after paying a $5 fine.

    Got very frightened when they took my shoe laces and belt and then I heard the snap of a rubber glove going on. A strip search is something I never want to go through again.

    Not a high point in Ben's life at all.

    I have, many times.

    I kept throwing the dice hoping for doubles, but in the end I paid my $50 and went on to St. James' Place.

    Fighting....twice in my life (under the influence of vodka.....but I didn't start it and the guys deserved it and it was self defense of body and honor).

    Yeah, I deal with a lot of assholes, but anger management can be very helpful.

    Sat in a holding pin with 20 other guys who all seemed to know each other. When I arrived I was treated like "the Godfather".

    We all got a bologny sandwhich to eat....I was able to get a second cause i was really hungry.

    Had my 15 minutes in front of the judge...started to get a little sassy with him, so he increased my "community service fine to two days sweeping the 42nd street subway station platform. God I was terrified somebody I knew would recognize me in the big orange vest I had to wear.

    I did six days in L.A. County Men's Central Jail at Twin Towers. The original charge was lewd conduct (I was with a guy in Griffith Park, way back in the woods, and we weren't even doing anything, just talking) and a homo-hating cop named Kilpatrick arrested us and said that "all fags like you should be beaten to death."
    I went to court, did my community service, but because the court clerk fucked-up the paperwork, a warrant was issued and I got arrested during a traffic stop one Sunday. Stayed in jail until the next Friday. Turns out I was later named plaintiff in a class action suit against L.A. County for keeping me an aditional 4 days beyond when I should have been released. I won the case, but the money wasn't much. Seems L.A. was doing that to a lot of men, due to the fact that our system receives approxamately $150 per night from the Federal government for every jail bed filled.
    They put me in the Gay dorm with about 120 other men. There was some sex happening in there (I got a little myself), got my hair cornrowed by another inmate (I was one of the few non-Blacks in the Black men's section) and it wasn't TOO awful, except for the food. I can eat almost anything, but THIS stuff was bad, except for the breakfasts which were fresh and hot. Everyone was more afraid of the guards than the other inmates.
    An interesting, but not exactly fun, experience.

    Last april 20 of 07 Rikers DOC also known as The Tombs.

    Granted I wasnt there long 6 weeks, the pain of thinking I could possibly do time for 2 years upon sentancing is enough to drive any young man to do some things you wouldnt normally do. Also for something I know didnt do. (Everyones says this but mine is really true.)

    For a case that I was railroaded into at 14 that started when I was 12. Hence my profile headline. And a unfinished self emancipation (AWOL) from a group home at 17 because my survival was at hand with almost being stabbed by a phillips screwdriver. Thats what happens when Child "Protective" Services sticks 12 kids with family issues in a basement.

    I was taken from my apt here In NYC on charges I missed a court date 10 years ago in Denver, my home city. To a small dirty packed room downtown filled with about 30 junkies gangsters and a few that couldnt handle there alcahol and would be out shortly. There were 6 other rooms filled with 30 other people on the side and across from us. I was there for nearly 72 hours on a friday (worst time to go) before finally being seen a judge after a (day and a half) who told me I would be extridited to Colorado. But couldnt give me any info on how long it could take how I would be sentanced or if I would be. At least Ill get a bed now and get out of that fucking holding room. The DMV aint shyt to me now. 4 hour wait- is noting to me now.

    I was there for a month with other inmates telling me I probably get two years and some probation. Each time I was told that, It was like I had a stack of 10000 playing cards inside me that collapsed thinking about how my freedom would be reduced to such a mundane existence, I could literally feel it physically in my stomach while hiding it from everyone else. I was like there is really no way out. Two 15 min phone calls a day to the world is all you got if you can make it to them in the line for the phone at "call time".


    In the daytime there air was filled with the drone of constant yelling fighting competion and fake laughter. They have these things called bullpens, they take you from room to room to see a judge packed like sardiens on each other so if you fight you get more time. Your Bed is a smelly Cot with two thin semi white sheets that you easily sweat on because its plastic and has no ventilation. You get a sink with barely running water, a metal toilet. Soap that takes every bit of moisture from your skin. The food is without salt or sugar and is devoid of any bright colors. Your roommate can be sane or crazy, and be transferred at the drop of a hat. There were 18 cells and two floors, in my pod. Many other pods on other floors and one acrooss from us. The doors were operated by a control center and when one closed or opened sounded like a mix between a garbage truck and nails on a chalkboard. There was mucus and flem all over the walls especially the corners where it had layerd into brown piles. The floor and base boards were black and smelled of urine. The officers treated everyone like shyt and espeically if they were power hungry or madd that they go home to no one being there or are fat or whatever.


    Finally I was transfered to Colorado with 2 air marshals ( with guns) total overkill. Cuffed through Newark and Ohare finally to DIA. It was embarrassing to think people could be thinking I killed someone. But I was so depressed by that time I almost didnt give a fuck. Finally I get there and same intake process wait to see a judge. Takes 2 more weeks, before I get to see the judge but there I get an orange jumpsuit and shackes for my feet to see a Denver Judge. He tells me that im punishable by up to two years in the Denver County Jail and reinstated probation.

    And to top it all off Im an adult in juvinale court because it was a a juvinale case.
    So im sitting next to kids who are in trouble for smoking weed and being truce at school and what not. My case is the oldest case there and everyone looks baffeld as to why Im there. I wrote a letter to the judge and the DA was trying to say he had no info on any classes I took as a kid and is reccomending that I get two years for running away. To make a long Trial short the judge gave me temp probation aked me if I would be a flight risk (No) and a bail of $1000, I got out and found (by luck) my 10 years older probation officer, she had the information in the computer about how well behaved a kid I was in the group home and had cooperated and never ran away prior to this.

    On my next court date the judge orderd me to pay $1557.83 cost of two marshals bringing me there, and dismissed the case. Which I will go to the grave not paying for them fucking up my childhood. It can only go to civil court and I cant be re-arrested. Had the lady changed jobs or paperwork been lost or just too old to keep. I could have gotten two years.

    So I learned its STILL illegal when a state has custody of you and your not 18 to run away because there not doing there jobs protecting you from other kids in the grouphome. Up yours Child Protective Services along with the american judicial system.

    Thanks to my friends and family who helped me through this.

    OH WOW! An extra bologna (yes correct spelling) sandwich. You must be very proud! You seriously gave a judge lip after you did something wrong and then was worried about being seen? Wait, are you my 21yr old brother? Let me guess, even though you broke the law, you still felt like you deserved to be treated like a superstar. Yah...I'm only seeing the Molly Shannon kind. I think someone needs to smell their armpits...and not in the good way!

    OK, before I get ripped for saying this...you may have changed. If so, good for you. But, for any other brats out there that think they have the right to do anything they want because of their big ego...you get body odor and have to take a shit in a ceramic bowl - just like the rest of us!

    Damn you for giving Caslon "A Sad." Sad kitties are not cute!

    I received it... a warrant for my arrest...

    I had dodged it prior, but this time I knew things were serious... I was going to be picked up....


    For a fundraiser of course! They do it occasionally raising money for cancer, for diabetes, a variety of things. They jail you and you have to call and raise money as "bail".. its a fundraiser of sorts.

    It can create issues (LOL) I had a gay friend ask me what I'd do for him if he donated. I didn't even go there....

    Drunk driving in 1986. They put me in "the tank" and then in a "gay" cell. My passenger bailed me out and it was a total educational experience what with paying a lawyer, restitution, work alternative (to more jail), and alcohol education class.

    I didn't stop drinking until the late nineties.

    Oh, do me a favor and don't tell anyone. icon_smile.gif

    Twice - Overnights.

    Both times for bar fights started by a friend of mine.

    Why is it always the smaller, shorter, skinnier guys who like to pick fights with the 6'6" gorilla in the room?

    Spent the night in clean seperate cells. Otherwise I might have strangled the friend who started it.

    We paid the fines and damages the next morning, and that was it.

    I stopped going out with him to bars, and haven't seen my friend in at least 15 years.

    never have been.
    I was "thrown in jail" for a charity ( Muscular Distrophy thing) and had to raise money as "bail" to get out for the Charity.
    Other than that...I had a speeding ticket about 10 years ago...going 45 in a 30 mph zone...LOL. That's it.

    How many hours per day?

    If you did run into someone, what lie were you going to give them?

    I wonder why they gave you 42nd street - were you THAT sassy that he felt humiliation is better than actual character building service lol

    I've never been arrested myself- would be pretty damn humiliating considering I'm an intake/investigations officer for our county jail and my "co-workers" would be the ones booking me...that said, I've seen my share of embarrassing arrest.

    One that comes to mind was a local High School teacher that was busted in a DUI sting-the interesting part is when they arrested her and she submitted her Drivers License to the arresting officer, "she" turned out to be "he". So when he arrived at the intake unit he was advised that his attire was going to cause quite a stir upon entry. For this reason they confiscated his beautiful blond wig, shiny black high-heels, sassy pink purse, and extravagant diva dress which they replaced with the standard FELONY red-suit even though a 1st time DUI is a misdemeanor in Florida.

    They also treated him to solitary confinement to keep him safe since his tendencies were still obvious even without all the extra accessories. The makeup on his face was impossible to remove and he looked like a drunk clown having a bad hair day.

    Turned out it was his night to put on a good drag show at the local gay club. Needless to say, he had a drink too many and was the main attraction that day at the jail for defendants and officers alike. His Blood Alcohol content was off the charts too.

    When I booked him in I did do my best to give him fair and equal treatment. All in all he faired well besides the obvious humiliation since he did not want it to leak to local news channels. Not sure if it ever did or not.

    I have the unfortunate (or fortunate) ability to sass someone without saying a word, even from across the room and a rukuss will erupt.

    I spoke to the judge very calmly and respectfully, but I told him that "the entire judicial system was not about fairness and justice, but rather about power and money and that included everyone in this room".

    He didn't like that.

    2 days......8 hours a day...one hour for lunch

    I did see someone I know walking in my direction and I panicked, so I stuck my hand into one of the subway platform trash bins and a BIG scary RAT jumped out. Everyone on the subway platform started screaming and running the other way, including this chatterbox guy I knew.

    If i did run into someone I knew, I would have told the truth. There I was wearing this big heavy bright orange vest imprinted in big black letters "Department of Corrections"

    I think we learned that there is a time and a place for everything...in front of the judge being sentenced is neither the time nor the place to make grand political statements about the failings of the judicial system...apparently.


    p.s. all you bad jail boys are hot.

    Me. icon_redface.gif

    When I was 16 for a curfew violation along with half of my high school class (we just recently graduated).

    I spent about 15 to 20 minutes in a cell with two other male classmates talking to a drunk on the same charges.

    We got released on recognizance to the parents (a doctor and a respected farmer) of one of our female classmates who was also arrested.

    I recounted it with more detail on two threads here in the past.
