Drive-In Manager's 2nd Obscenity Arrest

RICHLAND, Wash. -- Richland Drive-In manager William Rabe has been arrested for the second time in less than two years on a charge of showing an obscene film.

City Attorney Tim Heye, who accompanied police during the arrest and confiscation of a print of Audubon's "Carmen Baby," reported that the film, which "glorifies sex in its most perverted forms," was attended mostly by apparent minors. He further characterized the film as "Filth...obscene under every test of the Supreme Court of obscenities," and in addition unfit for "display on a huge outdoor billboard for all of the world to see."
