JOEY AT LARGE
EVEN on a filthy, anonymous street in downtown L.A., people still know Joey Buttafuoco. As he waited for his ride outside Absolute Bail Bonds, minutes after getting out of jail last week, at least a half dozen former inmates approached Buttafuoco, shook his hand and wished him well. A squad car abruptly stopped in the middle of Vignes Street, where a smiling officer waved at Buttafuoco and they shouted pleasantries. The veteran jailbird spent six nights behind bars after his arrest for illegal possession of shotgun casings.
