Carswell At It Again, 05/23/66: Police officers and an ambulance rush to the scene of a car accident, which leaves a woman in a stretcher. Jack Carswell, director of Jack Carswell and Co. Funeral Directors of Houston, argues with a patrolman at the site. Carswell was engaged in a long-lasting legal battle with the City of Houston over ambulance permits at the time. Part of his business involved operating an ambulance and emergency response team. To Carswell's displeasure, however, the city required a permit to conduct such services. The chief of police eventually suspended Carswell's permit, prompting Carswell to resort to prank phone calls for revenge. Houston City Councilmen Lee McLemore and A. L. Miller as well as James Francis Willis of the Houston Police Department began receiving mysterious calls, where the phone would ring but no one would answer on the other line. On June 9, 1966, less than one month after this clip, a Harris County grand jury charged Carswell with using a telephone "in a manner and with intent to harass, annoy and torment." The court eventually acquitted him, so he sued Willis and the appellee for the physical and mental suffering caused by such accusations.
