Anton LaVey Found Guilty Of Disturbing Peace

About This Item

KPIX-TV news footage from April 21st 1967 with reporter Rollin Post featuring scenes outside a San Francisco municipal courtroom, where author and occultist Anton LaVey has just pleaded no contest to a charge that loud noise from his pet lion Togare was disturbing the peace at his 6114 California Street address, in the Richmond District. Although Togare was removed from the property earlier this month, Judge Lawrence Mana found LaVey guilty as charged and set May 12th for his sentencing. This delay is apparently because rumors need to be investigated that LaVey intends to replace Togare with another big cat. In fact he eventually got a capybara instead. LaVey is interviewed by Post and regrets the "hysteria" he feels developed around this case. Includes silent views of LaVey and his attorney Terry Hallinan. Opening graphic designed by Carrie Hawks.
