Man Arrested For The 1,000th Time

He's hit another a milestone. A Lexington man, famous for how many times he's been arrested, took his 1,000th trip to jail.

Police arrested Henry Earl for alcohol intoxication, a charge he's faced hundreds of times before.

Earl is a pseudo-celebrity because of his extensive record. He's been featured on late night talk shows and has several websites dedicated to tracking his arrest record.

Earl's 1,000th arrest happened late Monday night on South Limestone. He'll be in court Tuesday afternoon to answer to this latest charge.

If you're wondering what 1,000 arrests equals, here's a look at Henry Earl's history.

In all, he's spent 4,123 days in jail.

35 of his 1000 arrests have been this year alone, landing him behind bars 189 days in 2008.

On average, Earl is out of jail about two days before he lands back behind bars, although this time he was out for four days before his latest arrest.

    According to The Smoking Gun, his first arrest came in July 1970, when he was 20, for carrying a concealed weapon. And since then he's had over 1000 more arrests? He doesn't sound very harmless, as this article implies, to me. Carrying a concealed weapon shows some bad intent. I wonder how many crimes he has committed and gotten away with? Lock him up and throw away the key.

    Someone needs to tally what each of these 1000 arrest cost, and how much he spends on his beer or whatever he is drinking....Can he afford a place in public housing or somewhere. I pray for his safety and now that winter is coming on, all the homeless is in danger again. I don't think he would hurt anyone but it is sad.

    I'm glad to see our tax dollars are so well spent.... What a really sick society we live in when we make celebrities out of human trash like this ape.... Leave him there to rot already....

    I say put this pathetic monkey in jail and leave him there for about 10 years. At least it will prevent him from furthering his total number of arrests.
