Freeman once jailed for police cheek

The Last Vegas star was on leave from the Air Force in his youth and he decided to save money by thumbing a lift when he was accosted by a cop.

He recalled: "He thought I was a bit of a smart mouth... so he put me in jail... I got four days in the brink.

"You're not supposed to hitchhike on the Santa Ana, even if you're in a uniform."
