Man Arrested for Being on Meth Causing a Crash and Indecency with a Child

ABILENE, TX -- A man was arrested on Tuesday after being wanted for crashing into a woman while being high on meth and also touching a 10-year-old child.

old westerns

There was a lot of variety , but one thing you need to remember was James Caan was an old western actor. but he also was a famous star in the god father. This movie had been replayed several times and once by Dean Martin.

So, some writer had to get that story from somewhere. because little do writers think of inspiration on their own. it came from somewhere.

some of my favorite movies were written by John Ford or Francis Ford Coppolla. They wrote some of the best movies.
