Scott Thorson, who was Liberace’s chauffeur and homosexual 16-year-old lover — and is the subject of a HBO upcoming film about Liberace (Wiki) entitled, “Behind the Candelabra,” (airs Sunday, May 26, 2013) is in a jail cell at Washoe County Jail in Reno, Nevada at this time, a charming modern jail facility. See photos of the inside of this fabulous jail facility (scroll down). Reno police arrested him in February on several burglary charges, according to the Reno Gazette (who provided Thorson’s mugshot below).
Actor Matt Damon will play Thorson in the new film about the flamboyant celebrity pianist, Liberace (played by Michael Douglas — see photo below).
“Reno Police Lt. Mohammad Rafaqat said that police were investigating a wallet reported lost or stolen. Police were able to track the use of the victim’s credit cards in the wallet, which brought them to a hotel in Reno. Reno Police say Thorson was using the credit cards in the victim’s wallet and was found to be renting a room at a hotel in Reno with one of the cards. Police located Thorson at the hotel and arrested him on February 22.”
