As part of his outlaw image, Johnny was a heavy drinker and user of uppers and downers. He had several brushes with the law and landed in jail seven times for misdemeanor offenses, spending a single night each time.
They included a 1965 incident when pills were found in his luggage in El Paso, Texas. The police thought he was smuggling heroin from Mexico, but he had a prescription for everything they found. He spent one night in jail and was released.
There was another arrest in Starkville, Mississippi for trespassing onto private property late at night to pick flowers. He spent a night in jail for that one too.
Johnny's final arrest was in Walker County, Georgia in 1967, after being involved in a car accident while carrying a bag of prescription pills.
