Four Days Sober for Jewels and ...

Wednesday Jewels , our Tompkins Square Park "Jekyll and Hyde" , after 4 good sober days , drank a notable quantity of his prefered alcoholic potion launching again a demon on another day of rage and rampage in the neighborhood.

Jewels started drinking early and drank often today . His rampage began on avenue A the usual way . Jewels played in traffic stopping cars and entered restaurants to shake-down patrons and owners alike .

According to witnesses , police were called early in the day by one restaurant with a large number of officers arriving at the scene . As usual no arrest was made . Much of the rest of the day he just drank and raised hell becoming by evening quite drunk and exhausted .

Above a park regular is helping a very shakey and uncertain Jewels walk out of TSP and across the street to the farside of avenue A where he will now after some rest continue his drunken rampage .

Jewels accosts a pair and makes an unsucessful demand for $ 2 .... but he does get a cigarette .

Jewels joins a party of diners at 7A Cafe to again demand money without success .

Jewls blocks the intersection stopping cars demanding money from drivers .

As it prepares to round a corner a church bus is confronted with a demand for money .

A public garbage receptacle is searched for scraps .

This car Jewels caused to back-up 150 ft.

This action is unproductive and Jewels heads back to the sidewalk to prey on individual pedestrians to raise money for booze .
Unkown to Jewels the occupants of this car have called the police . They will also press charges against Jewels .

Jewels accosts this man and when he does not give Jewels the money that he demands , Jewels attacks him at first swinging and then dropping his cane .

Jewels picks up his cane and swings it again in a rage but then as police arrive he surrenders , sitting down on the sidewalk as instructed to do .

Jewels is questioned and cuffed.

Jewels is escorted to a waiting police vehicle and taken away .

Our police exhibited amazing patience and calm as they arrest Jewels -- no guns just calm and I don't know how they do it but to all the police that hold on to their calm and their kindness dealing with the public -- God Bless 'em!
This is a great set of photos. I think you've really captured the sense of lost that is Jewels.
