NYC, December 4
Fessenden & Ellenbogen are arrested and thrown in jail for wheat
pasting Habit Posters on Houston Street.
We were spreading the word about Fri/Sat Midnight shows at the
Angelika Film Center. Three undercover cops swerved up in an unmarked
car. We were cuffed and taken to the precinct. One of the three
undercover cops says to us, "I guess you didn't get into Sundance."
Then they told us about a script idea they'd been tossing around.
They took us to the precinct where they film NYPD Blue and threw
us in a cell with eight other guys. We spent an hour and a half
in the cell getting processed and printed. We gave HABIT trading
cards to the other prisoners, who were taken away in a chain of
handcuffs. Some were going away for a long time. We were the last
to leave at 3:00 Am. We asked the cops to take this picture. We
were charged with "graffitiing" city property.
