Terry Glenn arrested once again

Former Cowboys receiver Terry Glenn was arrested Thursday for driving while intoxicated and possession of marijuana, according to Denton County, Texas police records.

According to multiple reports, this is at least the fourth arrest for Glenn since his career ended in 2008.   The arrests have ranged from other marijuana-related offenses to a grand theft auto arrest after Glenn didn’t return a rental car.

Glenn was released Friday after paying $3,011 bond.   His mugshot is pretty much all we need to apply a guilty verdict in the marijuana possession portion of this arrest.

  1. Why are you posting stories that make me like Terry Glenn more? This country has a history of making mistakes, and eventually fixing them, hopefully this one will be corrected soon. Most people don’t have the resources TG has to protect himself, and a bad law can put a serious hindrance on their ability to maintain and survive.

  2. terry, terry, terry,
    how many times we told you “don’t mess wit texas” if youd’ve stayed by Walden Pond it’s all good!

  3. Terry Glenn is probably more well-known for his time with the New England Patriots than with the Dallas Cowboys. Why is it when he is arrested, be becomes exclusively a former Cowboys’ player?

    I’m not condoning the behavior that got him arrested, and I’m not trying to say that the Cowboys’ players have a squeaky-clean history as they obviously don’t (though they’ve obviously cleaned up; this site hasn’t recorded an arrest of an active Dallas Cowboy since February 2009), but to simply paint Glenn as “just another former Cowboy getting into trouble” strikes me as a bit stereotypical and shortsighted.

  4. Why is he ‘former Cowboys receiver’ and not ‘former New England receiver’? Given that the Pats drafted him and he spent most of his career in New England (and more time in New England than Dallas). He didn’t even finish his career in Dallas.

  5. Terry, Terry, Terry. We understand you’ve been every bit as cursed with problems as you were blessed with extraordinary athletic talent, but for godsakes man, if you want to party and get away with it, the redneck fishbowl of Denton County Teksass is NOT the place to do so.

    At this point when the cops recognize him they just pull him over automatically.

    Uh, that would be “her”.

    And clearly the seriousness of the situation was escaping him at the time.

    =======================

    It’s February 2010, and I see that you corrected yourself.

    So your point, “which still stands” is that the fact that the Cowboys have managed to go 11 whole months without an arrest shows that they’ve “obviously cleaned up”?

    Way to set your standards high, big fella.

  8. Wow. Talk about some over sensitive Cowboy fans.

    Let me explain it to you. If he had been arrested outside of Foxboro, the article probably would have said “former Patriot”. If he had been arrested in Wisconsin, “former Packer”.

    He was arrested in Texas, hence “former Cowboy”. It adds context by tying him into the area in which he was arrested.

    Probably not necessary in an article on a football blog where everyone knows who Terry Glenn is, but if this were on a regular news site, which is quite possibly where they ripped the story off from, this would be a common practice.

  9. “Former Cowboys receiver” hahaha I knew when I read the first line that this was a Rosenthal article.

    Oh Gregggg you Giants lovin’ douche.

  10. reality,

    So then explain why ‘Tank’ Johnson is always described as a ‘former Cowboy’ when he played in Dallas for all of a year. Any player that gets into trouble is described as as ‘former Cowboys’ if he just drove through the State once.

    This site and every other I know of ALWAYS describes any player as ‘former Cowboy’ regardless of the length of stay in Dallas.

  11. I went to school at the University of North Texas which is in Denton, and all I have to say is Terry Glenn was begging to get arrested by riding dirty in that county. I got away with it countless times, but so many close calls that I’ve lost count.

  12. To all the Cowboy fans whining that they’re calling him a “Former Cowboy Receiver”, the Cowboys asked for it when they claimed to be “America’s Team”.

    When any nationwide story comes out about anybody who is currently or, at any point, was a Dallas Cowboy, then the story is going to include that.

  13. Too bad. As a Pats fan I saw Glenn in his hay day. He had a ton of natural talent. He did well until his demons got the best of him. What a waste.

    If you knew your history you would know the team did not give themselves that name.

  15. Go Bucks. Try not to look so baked when they’re taking the mug shot Terry… it’s not like you’re Nate Newton with 200lbs of stash in the van. Now *that’s* a former Cowboy.

    Everyone know the Cowboys are no longer America’s Team, they are America’s Most Wanted.”

    Seriously, do you even follow the NFL?

    Ignorant comments like jimmy’s here are the reason Rosenthal writes “former Cowboys receiver”. Everyone knows the mere mention of “Cowboys” is an automatic +20 on the comments section.
