Prince Pic at Con Body

Was watching Real Housewives of NY tonight and they went to a gym called Con Body. The dude was an ex con and opened up a gym that is set up as a Jail. On the wall are famous peoples mug shots including OJ's and who did I spy? Prince.

The photo is fake. but the story behind it is well known. He and Bobby tried to steal a megaphone from a plane and got taken in. The story was told not too long ago... there is a topic here somewhere.

Anyone for banning the AR15 must be on the side of the criminal as once banned only criminals will have them.

While on tour in 1980 opening up for Rick James, Fink had suggested to Prince that they should get a police megaphone as a stage prop. The next day, the band boarded a plane and coincidently, Fink noticed the plane had an emergency bullhorn in an overhead bin. He pointed it out to Prince, who then convinced him to put it in his bag since he didn’t have a carry on. A lady sitting behind Prince notified the flight attendant of the theft while the plane was still on the tarmac. Fink explained,

“The next thing we know, the pilot comes out and announces, ‘It has come to our attention someone has removed some emergency equipment from the airplane, which is a federal offense ”

Sky Marshals conducted a search and found it on Fink and in a stand up move, Prince voluntarily went to jail with him. They were arrested and sent to a local joint, but it turned into a big meet and greet and Prince ended up posing for pictures and signing autographs in jail.

ConBody is a pretty cool concept.

Thanks, but this is more about the picture being on the wall at ConBody.
