American Apparel CEO Dov Charney's scofflaw nature is not a recent development. He was busted for illegally selling t-shirts in Montreal (the business that would eventually become AA) way back in 1987. The shocking Canadian court document proof, below!

You did your best to put a stop to "Don Charney," Montreal. Sorry it didn't work out.

A rough translation of the charges: "Contravened Article 3 of Regulation 333, namely: having unfurled, exhibited or offered for sale of public goods, namely: sweaters [or t-shirts? Jerseys? WAS DOV CHARNEY SELLING MONTREAL EXPOS JERSEYS, IN 1987?] at 2113 St. Catherine West [Street]."
