‘Wire’ jacket sold to a Mc­nulty

The Citizens' Voice - - NATION / WORLD -

A jacket worn by fic­tional de­tec­tive Jimmy Mc­nulty in the pop­u­lar HBO tele­vi­sion se­ries “The Wire” has been sold at auc­tion to a real-life Mc­nulty.

The Bal­ti­more Sun re­ports that a blue jacket worn by ac­tor Do­minic West was sold for $3,350 Sat­ur­day at the Thomas John­son El­e­men­tary Mid­dle School Fall Fes­ti­val.

West starred as de­tec­tive Jimmy Mc­nulty in the crit­i­cally ac­claimed drama and the jacket fea­tures a “J. Mc­nulty” nametag.

The buyer, Kevin Mc­nulty, has a son named James Mc­nulty, so the nametag fits per­fectly.

Se­ries cre­ator David Si­mon had pro­moted the auc­tion on his Twit­ter ac­count. He tweeted that he slipped a bot­tle of whiskey into one of the pock­ets and in­cluded a signed script in the sale.

Pro­ceeds are go­ing to the Bal­ti­more pub­lic ed­u­ca­tion sys­tem.
