JaMarcus Russell has a hard enough time staying out of trouble as is. It sure doesn’t help when you have other law breakers blaming crimes on him too, but that’s what happened late Wednesday night. According to the Reno Gazette-Journal, a 21-year-old man was pulled over in his Kia for not having current registration. We’ll let their report take it from here:
The trooper smelled marijuana inside the car at the time of the stop, and asked the driver and his passenger to produce identification … The driver provided a license, but the passenger did not have identification and told the trooper that his name was Jamarcus Russell and provided a date of birth.
After the trooper asked him to step out of the car, he fled on foot and was chased by two troopers while another trooper stayed with the driver.
“JaMarcus Russell” who was later identified as Calvin Golden, had an active warrant out for his arrest, so that’s why he fled the police. Just the fact that he was able to run away from the police should have been a dead giveaway it wasn’t JaMarcus Russell. That, and the fact that his bong toss earlier in the evening was intercepted.
Shoot, if something ever happens with me and the cops in the future, I’m going to have to keep this one in mind. Remember folks, LBS says: get in trouble, blame it on JaMarcus Russell. You can’t go wrong.
