Remember When Willie Nelson Bailed Actor Dennis Hopper Out of Jail?
You do? Dennis Hopper barely did before he died in May 2010. He tells the story in the Willie Nelson autobiography. Basically he was drunk and on acid and ended up in jail for waving a gun around and maybe firing a few rounds off randomly. As he was hallucinating, the sheriff came and said that Nelson had sprung for the bail.
"I freaked f---ing out," Hopper says (quotes via Saving Country Music). "Come on, man, who do you think you’re kidding? You’re gonna lure me out and yell jailbreak and blow my a-- away! But I thought, 'Hey, be cool, you are after all hallucinating all this.' So I walked out of jail and got into Willie’s Mercedes with him and his wife Connie and his golf pro Larry Trader. We drove across the desert towards Las Vegas."
