Bill Russell arrested at airport for having loaded gun in his carry-on

Bill RussellNBA legend Bill Russell was arrested on Wednesday at Seattle-Tacoma International airport for having a loaded gun in his carry-on luggage, according to reports.

King 5 TV reporter Chris Daniels tweeted the news Friday night and noted that Russell had a loaded .38 caliber gun in his carry-on bag. KIRO-TV adds that the gun was found at a routine security checkpoint inside the airport.

KIRO says Russell had a permit for the gun and was released.

Firearms can be transported if the traveler declares them to the airline ahead of time. Russell failed to do so.

Russell won a record 11 NBA championships with the Boston Celtics. The NBA Finals MVP award is named after him. He lives in Mercer Island, which is east of Seattle.

Russell’s shocking arrest for packing heat at the airport led to this classic meme created by Hempstead Huddle, who photoshopped Russell into Ice Cube in “Boyz N the Hood”:

Oklahoma WR Trey Metoyer charged for allegedly masturbating in public

Trey-Metoyer-OklahomaOklahoma sophomore wide receiver Trey Metoyer is no longer with the football team for disciplinary reasons. While most players typically get the boot from their teams for drug-related violations or not doing well in class, Metoyer’s story is a bit more disturbing.

According to SoonerScoop.com, Metoyer has been charged with two felony counts of indecent exposure. Metoyer initially denied the allegations against him, but later admitted that both incidents did in fact take place. The first was on Aug. 29. Here is the victim’s description from a probable cause affidavit obtained by SoonerScoop.com.

“The victim advised she was on a balcony smoking a cigarette when she observed the black male driving through the parking lot ? in a red Grand Am. The black male backed up and pulled into a parking spot. The victim noticed a short time later that the black male had his (genitals) exposed while sitting in the car (performing a lewd act).”

The second incident was similar in nature. This time, on Sept. 17, the victim claimed Metoyer approached her and asked if he could borrow a pen.

“It was learned that the victim was walking her dog when she was approached by a black male who asked her if he could borrow a pen,” the affidavit of the Sept. 17 incident stated. “The victim went into her apartment to get an ink pen and when she came back outside, the black male was (performing a lewd act) in front of her apartment. The black male then asked the victim if she would want the pen back.”

Metoyer was identified by the victim of the Sept. 17 incident earlier this month in a six-person photo lineup. Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops addressed Metoyer’s standing (or lack thereof) with the team on Tuesday night.

“Trey has not been with us since prior to the TCU game and at this time I do not anticipate that he will return to the team in the future,” Stoops said.

This dude obviously has a problem. Getting arrested for indecent exposure because you refuse to pull up your baggy pants is one thing. What Metoyer did is sexual harassment by any interpretation of the term.

Aldon Smith had enough weapons to form a small militia

Aldon Smith mug shotSan Francisco 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith is facing three felony weapons assault charges that stem from a house party he hosted during the summer of 2012 where one person was allegedly stabbed and two others were shot. Police who responded to Smith’s house found a number of assault rifles and ammunition. According to NBC Bay Area, the Santa Clara County District Attorney is expecting Smith to “self-surrender” to the weapons charges later this month.

So what exactly did the 24-year-old have stashed in his house? Enough weapons to form a small militia would be the simplest answer we can give. Prosecutors say Smith had not registered any of the weapons that were found in his home. For those of you who are more visual, let’s get a better understanding of the guns he had.

Bernie Kosar at DUI stop gave cops credit cards as his ID

Bernie Kosar DUI mug shot

When we posted about Bernie Kosar pleading not guilty to DUI charges on Monday, we noted that he actually looked somewhat sober in his mug shot. Well it turns out he was actually pretty wasted.

Kosar was pulled over for doing 74 mph in a 50-mph zone on Sunday morning. He refused a breathalyzer and was taken in on DUI charges. But during the DUI stop, Kosar seemed to reveal how messed up he was.

Some of the details behind the DUI are phenomenal (not that we condone drunk driving). According to the police report …

    - When asked to provide ID, Kosar gave the police two credit cards. When asked again for ID, Kosar pointed to the cards as if that was his ID.

    - Kosar was asked to recite the alphabet from E to W and supposedly said “E, F, G, P, L, M, N, O, Q,” which isn’t too far off.

    - When asked if he would be unable to stand on one leg for any reason, Kosar said he had a lot of surgeries on his ankles and knees because his offensive line couldn’t block.

Kosar man, what a gem. And by gem we mean idiot. And by idiot we mean don’t try this at home. Oh, and did we mention that Kosar’s daughter did porn?

Cleveland.com has the full police report if you want to read it.

Bernie Kosar looked sober in mug shot, pleads not guilty to DUI

Bernie Kosar DUI mug shot

Few former players seem to have had more trouble in life after retirement than Bernie Kosar. Not only has the former Cleveland Browns/Miami Hurricanes quarterback gotten a divorce, experienced financial problems, and felt the effects of concussions from his playing days, but now he was pulled over for suspicion of DUI on Sunday morning.

Kosar was pulled over for speeding and officers detected a strong scent of alcohol. They administered sobriety tests and took Kosar to jail, where he was released on $500 bond. He pleaded not guilty to the DUI charges and has a pretrial hearing on Dec. 9.

Kosar has made plenty of headlines in retirement. Not only did he anger Jeff Fisher by criticizing the St. Louis Rams during a preseason game, but he also raised concerns by slurring his words and otherwise looking or sounding terrible during radio interviews and an appearance on the ESPN 30 for 30 documentary “The U.” Oh yeah, and another problem he has is his daughter did porn. Yikes!

Hugh Douglas arrested for allegedly strangling woman, claims it was during rough sex

Hugh Douglas

Former Philadelphia Eagles defensive lineman Hugh Douglas was arrested and appeared in court on Tuesday for allegedly violently attacking a woman, according to a report.

WFSB says Douglas was arrested in downtown Hartford for allegedly attacking a woman at a Marriott Hotel. WFSB reports court documents say Douglas grabbed the woman by the neck and “slammed her into the wall several times.”

Douglas apparently claims the injuries occurred during rough sex. He has been charged with third-degree assault and second-degree strangulation, per WFSB.

Douglas, who played 10 season in the NFL and reached three Pro Bowls, made headlines around here last month after he was fired from ESPN’s “Numbers Never Lie” TV show for getting into a huge fight with co-host Michael Smith. Douglas reportedly called Smith an “Uncle Tom” during the drunken confrontation.

Adam ‘Pacman’ Jones reportedly arrested for disorderly conduct

pacman-jonesCincinnati Bengals cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones was arrested once again on Monday morning. According to WCPO in Cincinnati, the Ohio State Highway Patrol said Jones was cited for disorderly conduct.

A 2013 Dodge Durango that Pacman was a passenger in was reportedly pulled over at about 2:30 a.m. on Monday. The driver, 33-year-old Tishana F. Holmes, was driving 60 mph in a 45 mph zone. She allegedly refused a field sobriety test and was arrested for driving while under the influence. Jones was arrested for disorderly conduct at some point during the stop.

Jones is turning 30 next week, and it appeared he was celebrating his birthday on Sunday night.

This is about the 3,000th time Jones has been arrested since entering the NFL. If you check out our Adam Jones tag, you’ll notice that almost all of the stories involve Pacman getting himself into trouble in some way. Most recently, he was charged with assault after a video showed what looked like him punching a woman outside a bar. If he is found guilty of disorderly conduct, a suspension will almost certainly be coming from the NFL.
