I guess that my old buddy Red is probably going to end up with a swing blade and an orange jump suit on the side of the road. I do not know what has gotten into him since we were in high school together, but people tell me that he was involved with drugs. At any rate he got caught not driving safely around some guys who were doing sewer cleaning in Bergen county. For whatever reason when he got pulled over he ended up escalating the situation until they ended up tasering him. It seems as though he had a bunch of points on his license and the car was some sort of moving violation. No one found anything illegal in the car, but he already had some arrests and he was on probation. One of my friends said that if he had waited another week he would have been off of probation and nothing really would have come of it, though I suspect he would still be in a bit of trouble.
I actually saw his sister while I was back home a couple of weeks ago, she was having another break up and I guess she was ready for the rebound. Normally I might have been okay with it, in fact pretty eager. However she seemed like an extra dose of trouble and I had already spent a lot of time trying to get her best friend to go out with me. I was pretty sure that I would end up closing the deal. I was lucky I suppose, about ten minutes later her ex boyfriend showed up and did not seem to think the ex applied. There was some other guy in between them and he was not expecting to get punched repeatedly about his face without a word spoken.
