Playmaker Pulled Over, Barely Intelligible Public Apology To Follow

From USA Today.

Former Dallas Cowboys receiver Michael Irvin was charged with misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia after police searched his vehicle during a traffic stop, Plano police said Sunday.

Irvin, an ESPN analyst and semifinalist for the Pro Football Hall of Fame, was arrested on an outstanding warrant for speeding in Irving after being pulled over Friday afternoon for speeding in Plano, the Plano Police Department said. Police spokesman Mike Johnson said he didn’t know what kind of paraphernalia was found.

Irvin paid a fine on the speeding ticket and posted bond on the drug paraphernalia possession charge. He was released about an hour after he was pulled over.

The sad thing is that everyone will assume that “drug paraphernalia” is code for “crack pipe”, when it could have been any number of things. Including a crack pipe.

    first thing i always think when someone is pulled over and found to have “drug paraphernalia” is a bong. specifically this awesome pistol grip number with the carb under the top finger of the grip that i owned more than a decade ago. but the odds of anyone else having that are pretty slim.
