George Whittell Jr. lived his life to the fullest! He managed to always get into some sort of trouble, especially when it came to cars and women. He had a tendency to crash his cars (and later his planes) and “forgetting” to pay his bills for repair. One such instance happened in Santa Barbara in 1905. The Sheriff finally caught up with Whittell and he of course easily paid off the suit and off he went onto his next adventure.
