Containing Multitudes Since 2004
I'm curious (and a cursory web search reveals no answers) why was Nelson Algren arrested in 1967?
Studs Terkel just says "he was arrested a couple of times."(Although later he says "he couldn't get arrested.")
Algren and two other men were arrested for narcotics possession. Police searched the car they were in and found a small quantity of marijuana. A Chicago judge ruled the search "unreasonable" and dismissed the charges.
Thanks, TO'C.You can read more about it in Algren's The Last Carousel.
The Bob Mitchum of writing.
Love Algren's work..but jeez in this picture he looks like the killer in the "Saw" franchise!!
