    Watch cop-hating Quentin Tarantino lie about being a tough guy in jail
    By Maureen Callahan
    November 29, 2015 | 6:01am




    It’s “Pulp Fiction,” all right.
    Quentin Tarantino — under fire for recent comments about police violence — has claimed for decades that, as a young man, he served time in a Los Angeles County jail.
    One problem: The LA County Sheriff’s Department has no record of the filmmaker ever being in its system. At The Post’s request, the department searched its files back through the 1980s, when, according to Tarantino, he would have been incarcerated.
    “A check of Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department jail records revealed no evidence that Mr. Tarantino was ever incarcerated in our jail system,” said Capt. Christopher Reed of the Sheriff’s Office.
    Tarantino used to tell the story as evidence of his outlaw bona fides. But on a recent episode of “Real Time with Bill Maher,” Tarantino, now 52, recounted it again to claim solidarity with police protesters — that he understands what it means to be frightened of cops.
    “Back when I was in my 20s and broke, I was a little scared of the cops, all right?” Tarantino told Maher. “And oftentimes, I had warrants out on me for traffic stuff that I never took care of and everything . . . I’d get stopped, and I’d have to do eight days in county jail.”

    The Post spent a week calling and e-mailing Tarantino’s agent, lawyer, publicists and Harvey Weinstein, who produced the director’s upcoming movie, “The Hateful Eight.” The Post also left voice mails on Tarantino’s personal phone line. No one responded to any of the inquiries.
    As a budding film geek, Tarantino worked at LA’s Video Archives rental store for five years — a story key to his creation myth. In the Maher appearance, he said he couldn’t pay his traffic tickets because he earned only $10,000 a year.
    It’s a claim he has made as far back as 1992, when he told Paris Voice a version of the same story. “If I had a brush with the law, I think I’d wise up fast,” he said. “I spent eight days in the county jail on traffic warrants once. At first, I thought, ‘Wow, I’m going to pick up some great dialogue in here.’ But then you realize what a waste of time it is. They treat you like an animal, and nobody wants to be treated like an animal.”
    ‘I was kind of excited about going to jail the first time and I learned some great dialogue’
    - Quentin Tarantino in 2009
    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.
    Other versions of the incarceration tale have floated around for years. In some, he did one stint in jail; in others, he has done multiple. One was printed in a 1997 profile of Tim Roth in GQ UK magazine: “Tarantino . . . had worked in a video shop and he had spent eight days in LA County jail for unpaid parking tickets.”
    In Jeffrey Dawson’s 2000 biography “Quentin Tarantino: The Cinema of Cool,” the writer-director is quoted as saying, “I went to jail about three different times just for warrants on me for moving violations . . . They had warrants on me for three years and eventually I got stopped and they sent me to jail.”

    In 2009, the British news site Metro.co.uk quoted Tarantino as saying, “I was kind of excited about going to jail the first time and I learned some great dialogue.”
    Tarantino has been on a press tour for “The Hateful Eight” and
    has refused to back away from his recent statements about police.
    “When I see murders, I do not stand by,” he said at a rally in Washington Square Park last month just four days after NYPD cop Randolph Holder was shot dead. “I have to call a murder a murder, and I have to call a murderer a murderer.”
    Tarantino’s father and several relatives who are NYPD retirees condemned the diatribe.
    “It makes police officers’ jobs a lot harder,” his cousin, retired NYPD Lt. Anthony Massaro, had told The Post. “It’s much more dangerous today than in my time . . . It’s gotten very bad for police officers to do their job. My heart goes out to them.”

    "Driving without a license", dude was a bad-ass.

    Pretty fooling to repeatedly lie about stuff which can be checked out in under thirty seconds.

    It's a big deal that he says he was in jail but they can't find the record of it, really? I was in jail in my 20's and would be fine with them losing the records.

    I'm really looking forward to his new film.

    that they cannot find records, does not mean anything at all. Rutgers cannot find my transcripts so they cannot verify my degrees until i present them with copies of the dissertations they published, and the NIMH grants they accepted the funds for, with my name on them.

    organizations generally cannot find, or cannot be bothered to find, any paperwork that will not enable them to get more money.

    I think the reason he claims he was put in jail is funnier than him allegedly not having any record of it, personally.

    outlaw OUTLAW OOUUTTLAWWWW




    Also, his whole gleeful I WAS PSYCHED TO GET SUPERCOOL DIALOGUE is funnier too.

    maybe he was in jail the same way i was in jail: i walked into the cell, looked around, checked out the toilet built into the wall, asked where they put the tp, opened the door and walked out?

    I think not paying your parking tickets is one of the last initiation processes of the Southside Crips.


    Rebel rebel probably goes outside in the winter with wet hair, he just don't give a fuck. 5-10 MPH over the speed limit. Crumbles up and tosses that In-N-Out wrapper right out the driver seat window. You can't tame this bad motherfucker.

    That's why they contacted him (so they claim) to let him say something to set the record straight. He seemed to avoid their questions and confirm the story that he wasn't ever in jail.

    had my employers not asked me to confirm it as a condition of my continued employment, i would not bother with it either because any intelligent person (thus excluding corporate middle management types) can verify my degrees with google.

    Did you expect him to go dig into his personal archives and get his jail paperwork nice and xeroxed for the purposes of a frivolous article?

    No bitching of "wasted tax dollars and energy" in this thread? hmmm.

    Exactly. Just who is he justifying himself to and why is it worth a milisecond of his time to do so?

    "Oh yeah, hold the phone, I'm gonna stop production of my next 100+ mil opening weekend blockbuster to go dig around three decade old paperwork in the basement of my house."

    Lie often enough and you believe your own lies.
    I'm surprised he didn't say he was in for stealing a rye from Schnitzers.

    my employers want me to renew my fingerprints this year so they can run them through the FBI again. I asked them if, after 21 years it really matters and if they think my prints have changed since i was first hired. They admitted after 21 years they just cannot find them anymore...

    When I saw Tarantino in that march protesting the police it took me about 10 seconds to figure out his agenda. If you know anything about his movies you know he has an almost twisted fascination with using the N-word. He crowbars it into his films. Not surprisingly, he has gotten a lot of flack from the black community. Spike Lee (who I can't stand) has blasted him for using that word so often and said he will never watch his films.

    Now Tarantino has another movie coming out soon. He probably thinks to himself, "what can I do to endear myself to the black community? What is a current topic I can jump on or group I can join to show them I care about them? I've got it, the Black Lives Matter group."

    Unfortunately, a rich, white, liberal, Hollywood celebrity, like Tarantino, probably didn't think ahead to see how this could backfire.
