“Hopefully the City can take the actions necessary to eliminate this eleven year problem on a permanent basis,” were Cpt. Moody’s closing words. He was referring to both the troubles at Finnegan’s Rainbow as well as the Cuckoo’s Nest. The evidence Cpt.

These documents account for at least part of the punks that were arrested at the Cuckoo’s Nest, or its immediate vicinity. Buried in here are Jack Grisham’s and Pat Brown’s arrest records. The indices show arrests up through February 1, 1981. Of course, more arrests would occur after that.
Here is an index of arrests at the Cuckoo’s Nest up until October 11, 1980, a few months before the Special Enforcement was implemented. As you will see, arrests will skyrocket under the Special Enforcement.
