Abbie Hoffman Jumps Bail
Former Yippie leader Abbie Hoffman has been declared a fugitive from justice and is the object of a nationwide search by the FBI after Hoffman failed to show up for a New York court hearing.
Hoffman and three others were busted last fall on charges of selling cocaine to undercover narcotics agents. Hoffman was later released on a $10,000 cash bond which was posted by his wife, Anita.
Abbie was scheduled to appear for court hearings on March 15 and March 25th, but failed to appear in either instance. The New York State Supreme Court this week formally issued a warrant calling for his arrest.
Ironically, Hoffman was last seen in public on national television -- where he appeared as a guest on the Dick Cavett Show taped February 5th and shown last month.
