At last a Henry Earl update!

The most newsworthy thing in that article was that "The Smoking Gun" is now part of CNN... didn't realize that, although, not shocked.

 "Next thing I know is that a cop drives by and Henry says, 'Welp... here's my ride' and grabs someone's drink and throws it at the cop car"

Actually, looking it up, owned by "TruTV", which, is part of Turner Broadcasting, which CNN is as well.   So, more like kissing cousins.

Strange, isn't it? Each man's life touches so many other lives. When he isn't around he leaves an awful hole, doesn't he?

No, no. They are sister companies owned by the same overarching corporation. Equals in both value and prestige.

Ted Turner owns it all...and don't you talk bad about Teddy Junior!

"We walked outside and he said he needed a place to go and looked around like he was looking for someone. Next thing I know is that a cop drives by and Henry says, 'Welp... here's my ride' and grabs someone's drink and throws it at the cop car," Hurt wrote.

Wow.

For those of you too young to remember, Henry Earl headlines used to be simply a number...the sequential number of his most recent arrest.  Then the authorities complained to Drew about the traffic.

Anyone remember the "Many Faces of Henry Earl"?

Lately, judges have started handing down harsher sentences, jail spokeswoman Jennifer Taylor said.

Yeah, that works when people are this addicted and this mentally ill. Jesus, this is ridiculous, it's like the whole legal system in that town would rather be in the record books for having touched this guy than doing their jobs.

I admire this guys liver.

Actually, the guy is an ass. He's perfectly cognizant of his actions, and he gropes strangers and has been accused of worse by people I know and trust.

His antics still amuse me... but he is far from harmless.

I don't want Mr. Earl to stop.. he's a gorram legend in Lexington.

Awful hole is a pretty good band name...

Well holy hell.  I'd heard of the guy before, having lived in Lexington for quite awhile.

I didn't realize, until I saw the pictures posted above, that I'd met him and talked to him briefly a few years back.  Dude struck up a conversation and walked with me for a bit at one of the downtown parking lots.  Complimented me on my coat and wanted to know if I knew the sports scores from the night before.

Seemed nice enough, and he had to have been at least mostly sober at the time, but he did have a little undertone of the creep vibe going on.  Didn't hit me up for money or anything, though.  *shrugs*

Basically, ask Drew what any of the bar staff at any of the bars in Lexington think about him.
 
2013-12-05 04:44:57 PM
Glad to know the old guy is still alive.  He'd fallen off of the radar for a while. :)
 
2013-12-05 04:55:10 PM
Wow.  He was a car design legend....
 
2013-12-05 04:55:33 PM
landing him in jail for his third Thanksgiving in five years. He also spent his 64th birthday there in October,

For a second there, I thought they'd meant he'd spent 64 of his birthdays in jail. :)

Everything in Kentucky is a town, no offense. Towns are nice too.

I'm sure most of the bar staff in Lexington have something to say about Drew.

You realize that by that definition there are only 26 cities in the United States total.

I'd sooner see Steve Earle appear before an audience. Amiright?

Henry Earl, the poor man's Bill Crosby.

I don't know. I don't remember him. How long ago was that in Internet years?
 
2013-12-05 07:56:01 PM
Here's my ride!

He could make a bundle selling t-shirts, the damn fool!

By the way, I think there can't be that many mug shots of him. I think some of them are Bill Cosby.

It's like the House of Cosby in here.

That was one of the best webtoons I have ever seen.
 
2013-12-05 07:57:21 PM
His mug shots tile perfectly on my desktop. Go for it!

Geez-oh.

Henry Earl is so yesterday.

We're all about Robert Mrah these days.

Only in Kentucky would someone worry about the definition of a "city."
