Roger Avary killed a friend and injured his wife in a crash
Pulp Fiction co-screenwriter Roger Avary has been sent back to a secure jail after reportedly giving updates on his sentence on Twitter.
Avary, who was jailed for a year for killing a friend while drunk driving, had been on a furlough programme, allowing him to work outside jail.
But this has now been rescinded and he has been sent back to jail.
It was revealed he was not serving jail time after a blogger asked how he could send internet updates from behind bars.
The Los Angeles Times then found out he was on the work programme and that he had not actually spent a night in a conventional jail since he was sentenced in September.
The tweets purportedly written by Avary gave the impression of a grim life on the inside, sharing a cell with a "gangbanger", and using his inmate number 34.
One announced: "#34 is to receive a random strip-down and cavity search to be performed by a leering, rotund officer".
Ventura County sheriff's spokesman Captain Ross Bonfiglio said security issues led to Avary being transferred to a county jail and that his Twitter updates were not a key factor in the decision.
Avary, 44, shared an Oscar with Quentin Tarantino in 1995 for the screenplay for Pulp Fiction.
He pleaded guilty in August to vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated following a crash which killed his friend Andreas Zini and left his wife injured.
