    Have you ever been behind bars?

    Exactly what it says, have you ever been arrested and thrown in a jail cell?

    Got locked up for a few hours for being an accessory to a crime and
    loitering.
    my buddy yelled "Oink Oink" to an "officer" (and I use the term loosely)
    and we all got hauled in to jail (local). Of course the owner of the lunch counter
    where we just finished eating killed the loitering charges (well I didn't have $5.00
    left, hell I was in High School) and how the hell can one be an accessory to
    someone yelling "oink oink"? The judge laughed, threw the case out and
    severely chastised the officer in question. Poetic justice.
    But then this was 1970 and the police were sure that we long hair types
    were the living image of satan and drug addicts to boot.

    Where is the "I like pie" option?


    ... No, I haven't been. The closest I've come to a jail was when I was on a ride-along and the officer arrested this guy for molesting his girlfriend and put him in jail for a couple of days and I was with him thorugh the whole thing.

    No pie in prison. You should be aware of that.

    Not yet. Let's hope it stays that way and I'm never caught speeding at over 100 MPH, which is a misdemeanor in many states.
    If you notice this notice then you will notice that this notice is not worth noticing.

    Well, if you're on your bike at the time, they should let you off....

    Never been locked up! Came close once, in Texas, but got lucky. Haven't even gotten a ticket in several years.

    Never in bars, but as a kid, I was in the "interrogation" room of the county lockup until my mom arrived a few times....

    1st time: I thought it was funny to taunt the bats in the local movie theatre using a thick rubber band and BBs....when the bats started getting pissed and swooping down, someone called the police on me for disturbing the peace. Seriously, that theater had bats...and they would fly above the screen during the movies.

    2nd time: I got busted playing "battleship" against one of my friends on the lake...we had attatched bottles to the sides of our rowboats and were launching bottle rockets at each other.....oh and we were drunk and underage (doh!) By the way, I won by default for making him drop his lighter into the water.

    3rd time: "Officer I ain't jokin...it was a cigarette I was smokin...." ...he didn't believe me ...that one got me in some real deep with my mom...almost didn't get to see any of the summer on that one.

    4th time: I thought it was funny to borrow my friend's white crown vic (ex cop cruiser) and park it on the roadside, and hang out the door pointing a hairdryer at oncoming traffic. The cops didn't find it all that humerous. My friends who were hidden across the road found me getting brought in for it hysterical though...freaking ******.

    5th time: more public annoyance. There was one bathroom in the town park, and there was a event going on there...well I went and put two whole boxes of stink bombs inside the men's restroom...it was bad enough to make an onion cry.

    Amazingly I got varying degrees of community service from each of them...I guess they figured out that in a town of 2500 people, it's hard not to get bored enough to do some of the crap I did.

    From 7th grade to 9th grade I played a computer game called Everquest. I had anger problems from it and one night I was having a terrible time. So I ended up yelling at my mother after she grounded me off the computer. I said some bad things I shouldn't of said and got 2 weeks in the Juvi. Lol. Mean computer geek.

    I was in the D.C. jail for a couple of hours, so I voted for "County Jail". This was back in '68. I was arrested at a demonstration protesting the Three Sisters Islands Bridge across the Potomac River. (The bridge was never built.)

    I got one on the 580 doing 115+ on my MC . I got a 30 day susp,3 days in jail, traffic school & i a $750 fine(they have the option to take your vehicle on the spot) I would think if one has gold pockets one wouldn't even get that.

    I've never been in jail. My criminal and driving record are a clean slate. I have ridden in an officer's car once. Story will remain a mystery though

    No. I wasn't comitting a crime, just acting crazy. So the cops took me to a psych ward where I spent a reasonably comfortable night after a nurse gave me some stuff to drink that put me to sleep. In the morning I had a cuppa coffee and met some interesting people before going on my way.

    I think some of those were covered in the "have you been naughty" thread.

    Never behind bars here. Plan to keep it that way.

    No.

    I remember a few years ago dating this woman. I was in her town ( a bit south of Tampabay ) and she was driving me around showing me the sites. She points to an area and says "the jail is over that way.....have you ever been in jail?".

    "No" I said....and she replies (thoughtfully), "I don't think I've ever dated somebody who's never been in jail before." That SHOULD have been a clue....but I still had to play it out and learn the hard way.


    That being said....I "should" have gone to juvie when I was a kid. I got in trouble and did community service. I had this sheet that all my teachers had to sign every week and I would go to juvie if I got any bad marks. Well, one teacher, this one week was having a rough time of it, or maybe it was "that time of the month" or something...but she unfairly gave me bad marks. I "should" have gone to juvie....but instead I re-did the sheet and forged her marks on it. It worked.

    Was this "free of charge"? It doesn't sound half bad.

    Unless you count the value of the little pocket knife they confiscated that I never saw again. I didn't have the presence of mind to claim it in the morning and it wasn't worth the trouble of returning for it.
