"In 1969 he [Fiedler] published ''Being Busted,'' about how police officers raided his Buffalo home in 1967, found hashish and marijuana, and arrested him along with his wife and five other family members. The book was half about the event and half a meditation on Mr. Fiedler's past. After a five-year legal struggle, charges against him were thrown out by the State Court of Appeals." - “Leslie Fiedler Dies at 85; Provocative Literary Critic,” by Christopher Lehmann-Haupt, The New York Times, Jan. 31, 2003
