Ralph "Shorty" Price, was an attorney and perennial political candidate from the state of Alabama, mostly noted for his colorful "clown" persona. He ran in the Democratic primaries for Governor of Alabama in 1958, 1970, 1974 and 1978 although he never captured more than 2% of a vote. Price was famous for his antics at Crimson Tide football games, which sometimes landed him in jail. In 1979, after Price pleaded guilty to public drunkenness and disorderly conduct charges following the Alabama-Tennessee game at Legion Field in Birmingham, Circuit Judge William Cole told him "See you next fall" after imposing a $125 fine. Sometimes, when he campaigned, he wore a red-and-white suit covered with the words "Roll Tide." Price was killed in the automobile accident in 1980 at the age of 59.
