(Newser) Drugstore Cowboy author James Fogle is back in jail after taking yet another page out his own book. The author, whose book about his life of robbing pharmacies to feed his drug addiction became a 1989 movie starring Matt Dillon, was arrested this week for robbing a Seattle-area pharmacy. "He's 73 years old and this is probably the only thing he knows," a police spokesman told the Seattle Times. Fogle—who was wanted in connection with several other pharmacy heists—and an accomplice have been charged with first-degree armed robbery.
