He served time in the Texas Prison System.

Also on the tour is the old prison rodeo arena made famous in the 1980s movie Urban Cowboy. The Huntsville Walls Unit is probably the largest international draw in the city. The unit dates back to 1849 and housed the first Texas prisoners including such notables as Clyde Barrow, David Crosby, and John Wesley Hardin. The unit is the site of the death chamber where the State of Texas carries out every execution. It was featured in The Life of David Gale starring Kate Winslet and Kevin Spacey. Visitors can take a walking or driving tour of the site, learning about its modern controversies and its old time tales of criminal legends.
