Former NBA player Samaki Walker was arrested Thursday for illegal possession of marijuana and steroids. The best part? Samaki tried to eat the pot before he was searched by the police.

Police say Walker tried to eat eight grams of pot. He was eventually busted for possession 10 grams of the sticky-icky-icky, and liquid steroids, which sound very space age.

Eating pot will mess you up. Eating eight grams? That’s beyond.

Reading the above headline should make your soul cringe. At least a little.

Deshon Marmon was arrested for refusing to pull up his pants while on an airplane at San Francisco International Airport. Deshon is 20. He plays football for the University of New Mexico. Deshon was in the Bay Area for the funeral of a friend.

This is an actual quote from an actual police officer:

An airline employee spotted Marman before he boarded Flight 488, bound for Albuquerque, and complained that Marman’s pants “were below his buttocks but above the knees, and that much of his boxer shorts were exposed,” Sgt. Michael Rodriguez¬†said.

DeShan Stevenson was arrested for public intoxication in Irving, Texas last night. Irving is basicaly in Dallas, where the Cowboys old, much groovier home Texas Stadium used to sit. Dallas is where DeShawn will be participating in an NBA Championship parade today. We can perhaps step out on a limb and surmise that ol’ DeShawn was doing a little pre-gaming for the parade. And God bless. Who wouldn’t get a little loose after becoming a world champ?

The best part about this story is that police picked up DeShawn for wandering the streets, apparently unaware of where he was. At 10.30 pm. Think of the championship drinking effort required to be that obliterated before the late local news.

Plaxico Burress spent two years in jail because he accidentally shot himself. Think about it.

Tom Leykis is a legendary radio personality. He’s also a Dodger fan who has experienced the acutely negative vibe that is sadly pervasive at Dodger Stadium these days. He’s putting tens of thousands of dollars of his own money up to boost the overall reward amount for information in the Dodger Stadium beating. He joined Robert in Hour 3.

Allen Iveson is one of the greatest sports figures of our era. He was a transcendent talent in the NBA. And, massively quotable. His taking reporters to task over questions about practice remains a famous piece of media.

Now, he’s at it again. Dig this brilliant – reported – exchange with police in Atlanta.
