Messages, Deron Patrick Scarabin – January 25, 27, 1997 Jason Scarabin

Back in my speeding days, Deron leaves a message about Nevada putting out a warrant for my arrest for not having paid a speeding ticket. Speeding occurred between Mesquite and Las Vegas heading south on I-15 likely going between 98-110mph. Paid in full but the message is a treasure.
