Over the last few years, I’ve had a number of chances to visit the Justice Center in downtown Columbus, Ohio. It houses courtrooms, jail cells and the like. Almost directly across the street is a sign for a place called Chuck Brown Bail Bonds. A number of friends have seen it and taken to ribbing me about it from time to time.

Fast forward to the early summer of 2006. First, in late May, I received a phone call at my home asking if I was “the bail bonds guy” (“no…”).

About a week later, I was driving west on Fifth Ave at Leonard, when this billboard jumped out at me (figuratively speaking).

I thought you might enjoy it. 😉

I always see his place downtown when driving on High St in Columbus, near the Justice Center.

And, here’s another case of mistaken identity.
