Ernest Cox, arrested March 4, 1995
Check out these awesome sketches that Rime aka Jersey Joe did recently. He found a bunch of abandoned arrest records strewn about an old police station in the Highland Park section of Detroit. Re-appropriating them for his own usage, Rime doodled characters and designs that played off of what the arrest was for. Read his captions below for some insight into this cool process.
Demetrius Barnes, Charge: Receiving & Concealing (a good time)
Ron Louis, Charge: Failure To Appear for Arraignment On Loitering – Making it rain, washed into the system, grab hold, get fucked or stuck on repeat
Steven Whitfield, Charge: Disorderly Person
Anton Miller (above) got picked up for a warrant back in 1992. I incorporated the possible details of a 6am police raid on his home. Those who have had their doors kicked in at the crack of dawn can relate.
