Dave Reeves, writer and traffic "offender," is on the outside now. Jay Babcock of Arthur Magazine, which is home to Reeves' Do the Math column, emailed to say that Reeves walked out last night.
[Reeves] was released last night. He is free on "work release" and has to check in at the jail tomorrow. He said it's race war in there. They make people line up by race: black, Latino and "peckerwood" (white). He witnessed four people beat up in three days, to the point where they couldn't walk. He said there are whole rooms in County that are packed full of traffic offenders.
Reeves was sentenced to prison for 23 days for failing to report an accident in which a man in an SUV hit Reeves on his motorcycle. Yes, that's the story. And the long version doesn't make any more sense than the short version. The writer's other address is in Echo Park.
