Point broke

Gazette staff February 29th, 2012

Had actor Gary Busey not allegedly attacked a woman at a Tulsa airport last summer, the one-time Oklahoman might be able to breathe a little easier. Actually, scratch that — he’s in way over his head, according to documents related to his Feb. 7 filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy.

Busey has less than $50,000 to his name, but owes at least 10 times that amount (and perhaps half a million more). Since HBO’s “Entourage” is history, thus denying him any further appearances playing himself, it’s unlikely he was going to luck into a gig lucrative enough to pay all that back.

Don’t feel too bad for him; the guy has admitted he cheated the government out of state and federal taxes for more than a decade, to the tune of $451,000.

On those bankruptcy docs, Busey listed everything — and we do mean everything — he owns. Among the more unusual items are: —300 VHS tapes, —200 cassette tapes, —a “painting of an Indian,” —five pairs of moccasins, —a “fabric strap with an attached eagle talon,” —one broken pellet gun, —one boogie board and —two tambourines.

Gary, is your 1986 war film “Let’s Get Harry” among one of those 300 VHS tapes? Since that movie is unavailable on DVD, Chicken-Fried News will give you $3 for it, $2 if it’s signed.
