rowdy-sheeter n. a person with a criminal record; a hardened criminal. Editorial Note: A synonym is history-sheeter. In India, a rowdy is far more often used than in other Anglophone countries to mean a lawless or disorderly person. Therefore, a rowdy sheet is what is known in the U.S. as a rap sheet—a criminal record—and a person who has such a record is therefore a rowdy-sheeter. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
