Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon was just over the legal limit when arrested for DWI, but his choice in friends on the road will raise even more questions.
According to WRALSportsfan.com in Raleigh, N.C., Gordon was pulled over this morning for doing 50 in a 35 mph zone. He then blew a .09, just over North Carolina’s legal limit of .08.
But the interesting part might have been his choice in traveling companions.
Gordon’s $500 bond was paid by Haydn “Fats” Thomas, who has a long history in the Raleigh area.
A well-known hustler in the Triangle, Thomas has been connected to other automotive misadventures.
When former North Carolina basketball star P.J. Hairston was stopped and busted for possession of marijuana, he was driving a car which was rented by Thomas. Hairston ended up tossed out of UNC and spent a year in the D-League before he was drafted by the Hornets this summer.
Thomas is described as a “party promoter” and is a convicted felon.
