Thanks to you all that came (and supported) we are all out of the lock up now and I will be forwarding pictures as they get done as well as the police report, etc. etc....


Very blown out of proportion but I think those that came had a good time even though a lot had to be canceled (even those of us in jail had a good time, singing cum-by ah (sp?) with the crack addicts and whores). It was a blast and thanks to all...


We have got some great "Home video" and pictures of Wez and personal talks with him about the films and all the questions you have asked to be asked. Please understand that we are all a little busy right now, but they will be released as quick as it we can and it is smart to do so..... I do have a copy of both the news (tv) and Article (news paper) that I will post as I can.


Let me see if I can attach this Bumper sticker that a friend just made for me... Very funny! I'll be writing soon. I'm on my way to pick up the police report right now...

It should more accurately read "Free Chain Gang 151" or maybe even FREE the ROADWAR 151 Dangerous Dozen" LOL

Dude, I so need a copy of that police report, and all that crap. Me and Chris (we were in the black '70 Olds Cutlass) finally go out of county around 3 PM, so we were incarceerated for almost 24 hours. We were the last of our little group out, I think, since we couldn't PR out, and my wife had to come down from Dallas. Then it takes 4 hours to process out *after* posting bond...


We finally got back to Dallas about 1030 PM (I drank many energy drings to stay awake...)


The run was great, and the rest of it would have been great, but a little man with a god complex had to get his shots in and mess up our lives for the next month or two...


Get the video up ASAP, 'K?





On the plus side, My Cutlass ran perfectly on the trip down and back - it's been a while since it's made a nice, long drive. I was doing maintenance before the trip, and realized that I hadn't changed the oil in over a year (though I've added a bunch, it had leaky valve covers until a month ago), but it also had only 1200 miles in that time!

Actually, we couldn't show the movies, and a dozen of us were arrested and held for around 20 hours after the Run.


Soooo, there were pluses and minuses. :)

'Mad Max' fans run afoul of the SAPD [/font]

Spooked motorists called police to report a scene so bizarre it could've come from a movie: a convoy of armed men apparently trying to hijack a tanker truck.


In fact, it did come from a movie.


"Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior," to be exact.


Eleven "Mad Max" movie buffs were arrested and charged Saturday afternoon with obstruction of a highway during their theatrical convoy from Boerne to the Alamo Draft House in San Antonio for a movie marathon.


Police received several calls from motorists near U.S. 151 and Loop 410 who reported a "militia" armed with machine guns surrounding a tanker truck, a police report states.


The guns were fake and the tanker truck was part of the act, but two of the collared movie buffs were also charged with possession of prohibited knives.


Someone in the group told police that they were filming a documentary. But instead of sympathy, they got a citation for filming without a permit.


One of the organizers of the event, Chris Fenner, said the arrests were unfair to the group.


Fenner said he was riding a motorcycle behind the tanker truck, and the rest of the convoy was lined up behind him, not speeding or weaving in traffic.


Fenner had even e-mailed police spokesman Gabe Trevino to give the Police Department a heads-up on the event and invite officers to attend.


Along the route to the theater, Fenner had to pull over for a little while, and he arrived at the Alamo Draft House last, only to see a group of police cars there.


"I thought, wow, what a great turnout by the San Antonio police," Fenner said.


Some cops found the situation humorous, but some others were quite agitated and made the arrests, said Fenner, who was confounded that anyone would have confused the costumed crew for a real threat.


"I honestly don't know how that could be, because 'Road Warrior' was so over the top," he said.


About 25 people participated in the convoy, some from across the country, and more than twice that number were expected to attend the movie marathon.


Most were die-hard "Mad Max" fans, like Fenner.


He remembers watching the first "Mad Max" with his father and the second on a date with the woman who would be his future bride.


"I really like cars and motorcycles, and they're great car and motorcycle movies," he said.


The convoy was part of an event dubbed "Road War 151," which was to culminate with the movie marathon.


The marathon was canceled after the arrests.


According to the Web site roadwarusa.com, actor Vernon Wells, who portrayed the character "Wez," was to appear at the marathon.


Of those arrested, Jeffrey Kuykendall, 25, was charged with three counts of obstruction of a highway and possession of a prohibited knife. William Rodriguez, 20, faced one count each.


The others, charged with single counts of obstruction were Fenner, 42; Sean Richmond, 20; Joseph Goss, 45; Kevin Wright, 35; Robert Castro, 35; Gary Minter, 43; Karol Bactoszynski, 29; Christopher Medellin, 35; and Steven Shelton, 58.

Hey Kevin,


Your Olds was bitchin', man. I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to talk with you, was planning on hanging with you at the Alamo and getting a closer look at your beastie, but when things went awry...


Also wanted to show you the car decals I brought down. They're the full-size deal, movie-correct, and best of all, they're done using 3M reflective vinyl. It's the same stuff police cars use that light up when hit with the headlights, making us all pee our pants. But hey, we can still hook up because I live in frickin' Irving! I had no idea there was going to be another DFW-area contingent down there. Feel free to email me off the forum if you like.
