Ends Up In Jail
MIAMI (IUP Shrimp fisher-
man Benjamin Washington sur-
vived an attack by Cuban MIG
fighters and a debut on national
television, but not a sailor's
night out on the town.
Like many a seaman before
him, Washington wound up in
jail and missed his boat.
The 27-year-old shrimper and
the skipper of the boat Ala,
Paris Jackson, both Negroes,
were each given $50 to appear on
a television news program to
tell how they were fired on by
four Cuban jets off Elbow Cay
The pair checked into a hotel
here after the show Thursday
night, planning to return to Key
West the next day to wait for
the Coast Guard to tow their dis-
abled boat to port.
But Washington told his skip-
per he wanted to have a few
beers. He was arrested at 3 a.m.
and charged with public drunk-
enness. He told police he had met
a girl in a bar and that was all
he could remember.
His $50 was gone and he could
not make the $25 bond. A cam-
eraman bailed Washington out
and put him on a bus for Key
West to join Jackson, who met
the boat alone.
