    He was once busted when a car he stole ran out of gas in a tunnel.

    He led a riot at Parkhurst Prison (1969).
    He said his youngest son Francis 'let me down' by never getting in trouble with the law.
    A year before his death, police issued an ASBO (anti-social behavior order) against him after he threatened a fellow resident of his nursing care home who had sat in his favorite seat.
    'The Daily Mail' wrote that his 'one redeeming feature was that he did not attempt to explain away his criminal behavior.'
    He survived being shot in the head at close range in an attempted murder (1991).
    He ran a coach tour of old gangland haunts in London and was reported to always be punctual and polite.
