The Sax Man Was Arrested for Allegedly Stealing Sunglasses From Tower City




Maurice Reedus Jr., also known around these parts as The Sax Man, was arrested this month for allegedly shoplifting a pair of cheap sunglasses from a store in Tower City.

Reedus was also arrested on August 1 for contempt of court.

We're trying to track down the exact arrest date and charge, but The Sax Man, a source said, is now banned from Tower City for life. He apparently had over $100 in his possession at the time of the incident.

A documentary on his life is due out in early 2014.
