Najeh Davenport didn’t get pinched, after all

For perhaps the first time in human history, the “it wasn’t me” defense has worked.

A previous post about Najeh Davenport, which cited a Local 10 in Miami news report, incorrectly reported that Davenport was arrested by police following a police chase.  This has turned out to be a case of mistaken identity.  The individual arrested was actually 36-year-old Damian Coleman.

Coleman was in possession of Davenport’s driver’s license and told police that he was Davenport.  Coleman was driving a stolen vehicle matching the description of one involved in a robbery.

    Innocent til proven guilty,

    Just like after the “hamper incident,” as Najeh stated.

    “Where is the evidence?”

    Anyone remember that story about the ESPN employee suing the network for firing her over crapping in a conf room trash bin? Hey, IBS is a hard thing to deal with, especially with camp cuts looming…

    Why would you bring up a 10 year old indiscretion with cute puns? Just remember the Terry Bradshaw incident.

    So you’re saying Terry Bradshaw is still alive??

    I love the pic. It’s vintage Davenport-squeezing out a first down through the hole.

    Poor Najeh. Dude doesn’t do anything wrong but now finds himself square in the spotlight with writers lobbing poop references.

    …but he did pinch a loaf in a laundry hamper.

    What kind of idiot steals a car then chases the police?

    Finally, a story about the Steelers that doesn’t involve a player jumping ship in search of a real contender. Congrats!

    C’mon now. Who among us hasn’t defecated in a dorm room hamper at one time or another.

    He didn’t get pinched because he’s a pincher not a pinchee.
