Elvis, Scotty and Bill were stopped for speeding on their way home from Shreveport.
Elvis recalled in a interview: " I thought: Here goes my Christmas money for a traffic ticket.
But the officer let us go with a warning. After the officer left, the 3 of us got out of the car and
counted our money by the car headlights. The money was mostly in dollar bills, Man, that was
the most money I ever had in my pockets at one time! I blew the whole bundle the next day
for Christmas presents."
