Jim Lester retired from playing music professionally in the late 60's when he found himself interested in more bankable hobbies, like law enforcement... As an Arkansas State Trooper, Jim busted a lot of folks, from all walks of life, and was even written about in the book "A Murder in Little Rock."

The Most famous of his busted fugitives were the hillbilly classic rockers, Black Oak Arkansas. He busted them for partying naked on their porch whilst drinking and behaving like asinine rock stars.

Jimmy Lester passed away in November 2003.
