Bootlegging: An administrator of Los Angeles’ Armand Hammer Foundation is scheduled to stand trial in Minneapolis next month on charges alleging he smuggled $60,000 into the country--much of it in his cowboy boots. Scott R. Deitrick was arrested Oct. 11 and released five days later on a $250,000 cash bond posted by Michael Armand Hammer, grandson of the late Armand Hammer. Authorities allege Deitrick flew into the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport from London and failed to report the $60,000 he was carrying. Dean Pregerson, attorney for the Armand Hammer Foundation, said the money found on Deitrick was not connected with the foundation.
