In what could be the plot of a Coen Brothers movie, the founder of Lebowski Fest, an annual party to celebrate the 1998 stoner-bowling movie, was arrested on Saturday… at Lebowski Fest.
Police seized Will Russell at Executive Strike & Spare, a bowling alley in Louisville, Kentucky, “on charges of possession of marijuana, resisting arrest, and menacing,” according to the Courier-Journal. Russell had allegedly been smoking weed in the parking lot, and when the cops approached him, he “took a challenging stance with clenched fists, leading them to believe he may be capable of causing physical injury.” Because no one f*cks with the Lebowski Fest founder.
Russell was taken to Metro Corrections and has since been released.
Officers weren’t amused when he asked them, “Mind if I do a J?”
