    Before he reached his teens, he was helping his bootlegger father hide the illegal booze before police raids.
    At 12, he was arrested in front of his class, which he said made him feel 'like Dillinger.'
    He had a hair-trigger temper.
    He nearly killed another inmate by slashing him across the throat with a hockey stick during a recreation period.
    After the publication of 'Go-Boy!' he became the poster boy for prison rehabilitation, which may have been a little premature considering his later arrests.
