1969 La Cue, Houston TX, mikes cell mate was, Eddie Taylor. This is where they first met LOLOL, then yrs later became friends. Mike said the tournament had 93 men hauled off in paddy wagons and they were going to take the women and children but decided against it. Duh.... Who would of ever thought we'd have two pool players thrown in jail, only to later on in their lives, become HOF members, neat story.

Reading Alf Taylor's book now. Great read. Alf was a great friend of Eddie Taylor's.
No mention of this yet but only half way through. Hope there's more to this.

Mike was quite a man in those days. I can just see two cops trying to cuff him. LMAO!
