LEXINGTON, Ky. – Henry Earl, the Lexington, Ky. man infamously known for being arrested more than 1,250 times spent Thanksgiving Day in the Fayette County Detention Center.
“He is somewhat of a superstar in his own little world,” County Detention Center Officer John Casey told ABCNews.com.
Earl’s rap sheet began in 1970 when he was 20 years old. That first charge was for carrying a concealed weapon. He would go on to be arrested 33 more times in the 1970s to start his long sent of jail time for minor violations, according to ABCNews.
Earl was actually arrested Oct. 4, celebrated his 64th birthday incarcerated on Oct. 24, and now has 1,267 arrests under his belt.
And like many of his past offenses, Earl’s current arrest stems from alcohol usage. He was charged with public intoxication.
Adding to Earl’s “fame,” The Smoking Gun recently named him the “World’s Most Arrested Man.”
Earl is set to appear in a Fayette County court on Dec. 5.
