BONUS: What did you get arrested for?

Oh, a couple things. One, for, it was stupid, it was like, failure to appear in court on the way to Vegas. It wasn’t even my fault. I was in a poker club in Toronto and I’d just won a tournament and it was underground or whatever. We had lawyers that were supposed to show up and take everything so I thought it was handled and then I was getting on a plane to go to Vegas and they’re like, ‘Excuse me.’ I was in a cell for a minute.

It was actually one of the scariest things I ever had happen to me because it was just a ticket; it wasn’t a thing. So they put me in this holding cell and it was a Friday, and they took me back to the jail where people are and I went into the courthouse waiting to be heard from the judge so that I could go. And then the judge was like, ‘Oh, you know, it’s about 5:30, we’re going to have to send you back.’ And the guy next to me goes, ‘That means you’re going to east detention.’ I’m like, ‘I’m not going to jail for the weekend.’ So I literally stood up, I sit up and I go to the judge, ‘Excuse me, excuse me. I don’t belong here with these people.

He looked at my thing and was like, ‘Oh yeah, this is not – he’s not supposed to go back.’
