Remember when Tank met with Commissioner Goodell to be punished for all his misbehavior during the NFL season? Johnson ended up being suspended for eight games, with the possibility of the sentence being cut to six games for good behavior. Prior to the meeting with Goodell, Johnson announced his intentions of turning his life around, proclaiming he wanted to be named the NFL’s Man of the Year. As commenter JS points out to me, Tank Johnson got his campaign off on the right start:
Gilbert, Ariz., police pulled Johnson over at 3:30 a.m. Friday and cited him for “being impaired to the slightest degree,” according to Sgt. Andrew Duncan, a police spokesman. Police initially stopped Johnson for going 40 m.p.h. in a 25 m.p.h. zone when the officer on the scene “made observations that led him to believe Johnson was impaired,” according to Duncan.
Johnson was taken to the Gilbert Police station where blood was drawn to determine his blood-alcohol content. Results of those tests aren’t expected for up to two weeks, Duncan said. In Arizona, the legal limit for being under the influence is having a blood-alcohol content of .08.
Why do I have to say this comes as no shock to me? I pity the fool who was duped by Tank’s sincere speech. Let’s hope for his sake his test doesn’t come out higher than .08. Or that he pays off the proper person at the least.
