Well, Alex has posted the story behind his run-in with the law.

Mixed feelings: I’m glad it sounds like it was just a misunderstanding, but I am pretty disappointed the story wasn’t more exciting… I was hoping a kidnapping, money laundering ring, or drugs would be involved.  I was hoping he would show up at my door because he needed to hide out until the “heat” dies down a bit.  I was packed and ready to help smuggle him in my trunk on a desperate fugitive run to Mexico.

I’m so lonely.
