He has been arrested for drug possession (for which he spent 11 months in a Texas prison), driving under the influence of cocaine, carrying a concealed .45 pistol, illegal possession of a hunting knife, illegal possession of ammunition and illegal possession of about 1 ounce of marijuana - not exactly something you'd want to Teach Your Children.
