In a photo
(left) taken by the late Buffalo Jim Barrier, Norheim is shown with his clients (right), and Ralph Rizzolo (left). At the time of the photo, Norheim was
being paid to harass Barrier in a failed attempt to make him move his auto
repair shop so Rizzolo could expand his topless bar the Crazy Horse Too.
It is not
presently known whether Norheim will return to his previous profession.
