Upcoming Episode: Blood on the Badge/Cops N' Robbers Event
I want to thank TURN UP YOUR Radio/Radio World Tour once again for airing The Mark After Dark Show, as well as the Indispensable Laura Reynolds, and my Secret Weapon Andrew Berger for helping me put this episode together. Tonight, we’ll be discussing the imprint that Cops and Robbers have on our daily existence and what those experiences have taught us. So, please tune in.
Jim Morrison: Charged With Disturbing The Peace, Resisting Arrest, and Petty Larceny
While in college, Morrison once had drunk a lot of wine and started to make fun of the football players at Campbell Stadium. But when the police arrived he managed to steal an umbrella and a police officer helmet from their car. Six years later, he would take it to the next level by wiggling his junk in front of the 60,000 crowd.
Johnny Cash: Charged With Arson
Man in Black used to do a lot of crazy stuff, but this one was the mother of them all. His overheated party truck became an igniting torch, scorching hundreds of acres, destroying foliage on three mountains and roasting, into near extinction, 49 of the area's 53 endangered California condors. And here's what he said during the questioning:
Investigator: "But how about driving all of those condors out of the refuge?"
Cash: "You mean those big yellow buzzards?"
I: "Yes, Mr. Cash, those yellow buzzards."
C: "I don't give a damn about your yellow buzzards. Why should I care?"
Ozzy Osbourne: Charged With Public intoxication
May 14, 1984, tour stop at Memphis’ Mid-South Coliseum ended with Ozzy in the drunk tank. He was arrested at on a misdemeanor charge of public intoxication, they found the former Black Sabbath frontman “staggering drunk” in Memphis’ Beale Street entertainment district. Later Ozzy said: “See, I can’t have a casual line of coke — that doesn’t equate in my head,” Osbourne later admitted. “I never went to the bar for a drink, I never smoked a joint. I used to go into a bar to get absolutely s—faced. It didn’t really occur to me that other people were going there for a drink.”
