I have been reading Outside the Beltway since its inception, and have been a big supporter of James Joyner, its founder. So when James announced he was going to be on MSNBC a week ago, I left my desk and went to watch the show. Unfortunately for James, it was during the Atlanta Courtroom Murder, and they had in his place, Henry Hill and a retired NYC police detective. Henry Hill was the mobster the movie Goodfellas was made about.
Well today, Henry Hill got arrested on drug charges in Nebraska.
Former mobster-turned-chef Henry Hill, whose gangland experiences inspired the movie “GoodFellas,” has been charged with felony drug possession.
Police said Hill’s luggage was searched on Aug. 15 at the North Platte Regional Airport and methamphetamine and cocaine was found. On Friday, Lincoln County Judge Kent Florum sent him to district court on a felony charge of drug possession.
If he had only been arrested a week earlier, James would have had his international television debut. Get them next time James.
