Part of the life story that he’s told for years – that he went to jail for unpaid traffic tickets, appears to be false.
Tarantino’s lone brush with the law, according to the LA County Sheriff’s Department, is a 2000 charge for driving without a license and failure to appear in court. He paid a fine to avoid jail.
“A check of court records revealed that in August of 2000, he paid a fine of $871, which included court costs, for violation of driving without a license,” Reed said.
The payment was “in lieu of an eight-day sentence imposed by the court,” the captain added.
