    Chris Terry was a very good high school basketball player here in Jacksonville as well. He came from a rough part of town. What the hell is he doing in IN? Just stick with the weed fellas. Stay away from that nose candy.

    I bet the average NFL player spends more time in jail then in the NFL

    The NFL is full of guys that would be selling drugs if they werent playing…but of course they are all underpaid! No story here really.

    Well, I could tell one thing from the headline, the guy was never a Dallas Cowboy. Had he ever spent any time, it would say “Cowboy player arrested…”

    Clarksville, IN is virtually a suburb of Louisville, KY…which leads to the next question:
    what the hell is he doing in Louisville, KY?

    given the money they make & the background they come from I wonder how many players are bankrolling drug operations ?
    Nate Newton, Bam Morris, Jamal Lewis & Travis Henry come quickly to mind…not sure about Lewis but the others were stupid enough to actually get caught with product

    It did not say “expired license”. He had a suspended license. Given his character it does not surprise me that he is getting DUIs or something.

    I’ve said it once, I’ll say it again…….. Never trust a guy with 2 first names.

    I’m kind of scratching my head as to how he could get class A felony dealing, but just get class C felony possession…just sayin’.
