The Dancing Outlaw, back in jail...

Jesco White, the Dancing Outlaw, is in jail for a little drug deal...Here's the picture and article from the Charleston Daily Mail (www.dailymail.com).

This guy could have made some serious money in the 90s after the first documentary came out, but he's too ignorant to realize it!

I'll do a blog soon about my "history" with the Dancing Outlaw -- no seriously, he's been to my parents' house, and I've seen him live several times -- I'll post one of the pictures to prove it!



Jesco White arrested on drug charges

Jesco White is in the South Western Regional Jail.

MADISON, W.Va. -- Jesco White, known as West Virginia's 'Dancing Outlaw,' has been arrested on drug charges, Boone County Sheriff Rodney Miller said.

White, 58, and a relative, Sue White, 40, were both arrested Monday night at their separate residences in Madison, Miller said. It was not immediately clear how the two are related. The arrests were made after police received a tip that the pair had participated in buying cocaine, Miller said. Both were charged with conspiracy for delivery of a controlled substance and are being held in the Southwestern Regional Jail, Miller said.

He and his family are the subject of a current documentary "The Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia" debuting at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City.

White was made famous by the "Dancing Outlaw" documentary for PBS.
