    Just wondering if you need anything from the man who was (Johnny) First Drug Counselor at Turquoise Lodge. That would be my brother, Huey white. I met Johnny as well in April/May 1991, and thought-out the years. Huey is still alive and kicking. Just ask Teresa who is, Huey White to Johnny. She’ll say that was his First Counselor. If you need anything you got my e-mail. But we will both, see the movie. One thing about Huey is. “He new everything about Johnny”. An from what I have watch. He call it. But Johnny was a kind friend to everyone. I will only give out his number to Teresa. Have her call/e-mail me. She’ll know who I am once she starts talking to me. Then I’ll give her Huey phone number.

    I want to audition for the role of the court judge, he will have the most camera time.

    In 1992, he met Teresa Chavez at a party and was determined to marry her. . Playboy reported that when they finally married, one of her cousins approached her and said, “If you want to see what you married, go look in the bathroom.” She opened the bathroom door and found Tapia with a needle in his arm. He took the wedding cash and dumped her in a cheap hotel. The next day, he was in a hospital with an overdose. He had to be revived after his heart stopped beating, the first of at least five times this happened.

    Tapia was arrested in 1992 on charges that he intimidated a witness to a murder committed by Whiting; Whiting later pleaded guilty to the killing

    Tapia has also been arrested for attempting to sell imitation crack cocaine to an off-duty police officer in 1994

    In 1999, Tapia suffered his first loss, losing a twelve round decision and the WBA world title belt to Paulie Ayala in what Ring Magazine called its fight of the year. That year also, he tried to commit suicide with a drug overdose, and required hospitalization.
    Tapia won his first 22 professional fights, then was suspended from boxing after failing three drug tests.

    Tapia was arrested in Bullhead City, Arizona the night of January 10, 2003 for resisting arrest along with his cousin, who was wanted on charges in New Mexico.

    February , 2009, Former five-time world champion Johnny Tapia has been arrested on a probation violation on felony drug charges. Probation and parole officers found the former champ at his home in possession of a controlled substance. Last April, Tapia pled guilty to felony drug charges and was sentenced to probation.

    Tapia has also had bench warrants issued in his name after he failed to appear on a traffic-violation summons in Albuquerque.
