Last week, we ruffled the feathers of Bills safety Donte Whitner, when Gregg Rosenthal posted a blurb based on a blurb from FOXSports.com that Whitner could lose his starting job this year.
We subsequently hugged it out, Twitter style, with Whitner. And all was right in the world.
Or so we thought.
Earlier today, we published an item regarding an early Friday tweet from Titans running back Chris Johnson. He said that he and another guy had been stopped by police because “they think we drunk but we ain’t drink nothing.”
Johnson doesn’t like the fact that we characterized it as a near miss from an arrest standpoint.
As Johnson tweeted tonight: “@profootballtalk hey stop posting lies about me I didn’ t even get close to going to jail all I had was a red bull so let the police do their job.”
But all we did was repeat Johnson’s own words. Though we probably should have stressed that he wasn’t driving (though the fact was already clear), any time a cop has a car pulled over with two guys in it and the cops think they’re both drunk, both guys — even the one who isn’t driving — are looking at the possibility of getting photographed from the front and from the side.
Usually they don’t. Sometimes, they do.
That was our point. But we apologize for not making it clear enough for Johnson’s liking.
