Chosen answer: Forgetting any "conspiracy to" offences that they would commit by just being around the brothers, don't forget they also pretended to be the Good Ol' Boys and drove away without paying, more than enough to send them down for a while.

The Sting (1973)

Audio problem: When Hooker first meets Gondorff he says "he didn't tell me you were a screw-up." However, when he says 'screw-up' in some versions you can't distinctly see his lips form the letter F, meaning that he actually said another, ruder world that was covered up later.
