Arrested for walking

O.K., I know Ray was, and I heard he spent like two days in jail. I don't know the details.

When I was a boy I had this problem. The reason being is I looked Asian (I'm Half). Now, as an adult, the police never bother me.

Maybe it's cause I look white now.

Hmm, what is so strange about walking?

TWO DAYS IN JAIL! All I heard was: in America (Los Angeles, where he lives) he was questioned by police for taking a walk after dark. Questioned, and let go. In America they need "PC" (probable cause for arrest--otherwise they'd be in trouble.)

In Ireland, he was arrested for being "Drunk, and in charge of a bicycle."

I don't know that he's EVER spent ANY time in jail--anyone else know?

Was this his inspiration in writing "The Pedestrian?"
