Unfairly treated

Let me tell you about James Jimmy Foster who was arrested in the big bust at the Brass Rail. He is a 30-year resident in our county and a very hard worker. Three months ago he was approached across from the Rail and asked if he wanted to buy some vodka and cigarettes. He bought a bottle and carton of cigarettes. Well, at the big bust, three months later Jimmy was at the Rail watching the History Channel just finished dinner when the Alcoholic Beverage Control came in like gangbusters for this bust.

Jimmy was arrested and the so-called control substance was a bogus claim. He had $8 and a few cigarettes on his; the sheriff’s office nurse examined him. He was not high on anything but life. His blood pressure was low and pulse normal and this was after an embarrassing cavity search. He was not read his Miranda Rights and was jailed over night and made front page in The Union.

This citizen has an impeccable reputation and work ethic. Alcoholic Beverage Control should apologize; The Union straighten the facts out.

Alcoholic Beverage Control didn’t even inform the sheriffs office about the big bust going down.

He is not a low life folks. He’s one of us.
