The legend-in-his-own-mind former high sheriff of Pulaski County, Tommy Robinson, apparently thought he'd get a wrist slap with a nolo plea to ganging up on a creditor in a Brinkley restaurant. Bad call. He got some jail time. (Five days, in answer to a reader's question, and sorry about the bad link initially inserted.) Maybe his wife, the parole board member, and his long-time patron, The Huckster, can pardon him. A more appropriate sentence would be to chain him to a fence for a day. No need in coddling him with watermelon and fried chicken, right judge?
