'Pulp Fiction' writer Roger Avary jailed

Posted on

Roger Avary, who won an Oscar for co-writing Pulp Fiction with Quentin Tarantino, has been removed from a work furlough program and locked up in a California jail, according to the Associated Press. But Ventura County sheriff’s spokesman Capt. Ross Bonfiglio denied reports that Avary’s alleged tweeting was the main reason for him being removed from the work furlough program. In September, Avary was sentenced to a year in jail and five years probation after pleading guilty to vehicular manslaughter for a drunken driving car crashed that killed a passenger and injured Avary’s wife.
