Josh Gordon driving NBA first-rounder’s car when busted for DWI

As it turns out, Josh Gordon’s weekend could get more interesting.

According to WRAL Sports, the Browns wide receiver was driving a Cadillac Escalade registered to Hornets first-round pick P.J. Hairston when he was stopped for DWI in Raleigh N.C. early Saturday morning.

That puts a bow on the first part of the story, since Gordon’s bond was paid by convicted felon Haydn “Fats” Thomas.

Thomas is the Triangle hustler who had rented the car in which Hairston was arrested in during his college days at North Carolina.

Of course, Hairston, who grew up in nearby Greensboro, just vowed that all his past transgressions were behind him when he was chosen by the in-state NBA team owned by Michael Jordan.

Hairston was then accused of punching a high school player during a pickup game Sunday, though no charges have been filed in that one.

This is why NFL teams worry most about this month, before players go to camp. And why NBA owners should too.

    Can you say, douche bag?! As a life long Browns fan, this is getting old. Dude needs to be in rehab. If he can’t get clean then he can’t be employed in the NFL.

    PJ Hairston is a great player, but being drafted by your hometown team is a ticking time bomb for some athletes, (ala Aaron Hernandez).

    If it ain’t staph infections… it’s staff infections.

    Paraphrasing John Winger from Stripes..It’s not just the uniform. It’s the stories…

    Much like Hernandez and several other pro athletes that have off field issues. There comes a time when its no longer about the sport they play but life and humanity. America loves the feel good story about the athlete that had nothing and made something of his or herself. It doesn’t always end happily…welcome to reality! !!!

    As a general rule I don’t drink and drive, period. But I doubt most guys would even feel .09 That’s a freebie for the cops.

    Heres an idea for all you troubled, dumb young football players…send a tweet to @baltimoremikeg and for less money than your garbage agent takes from you, I will follow you around and stop you from being a fricken idiot.

    Did they charge him with a foul for the punch at least, or was the recipient leery to call ball?

    When you have millions upon millions at stake and you still can’t figure it out. This dude genuinely needs help.

    What’s the official record of days in the league without an arrest? 15?

    Gosh Josh Good bye.

    What is a triangle hustler? Must be better than a square hustler . . . . I’d say a rhombus hustler is a pretty good kind too.

    At least he wasn’t photographed with Bieber….Cheers!!!

    Josh Gordon is trying hard to become the next Aldon Smith.

    The triangle is for the 3 cities, Raleigh, Chapel Hill and Durham, NC., at least I think this is what they were saying. Bill

    It’s cool to see the Hornets back in Charlotte though.

    On track to be one of the most incredible crash and burn, had it all and lost it all, stories of all time.

    Pj Hairston just got charged with misdemeanor assault and battery. Related incident?

  24. jf203 says: Jul 7, 2014 7:17 PM

    Really…why should anyone care? its up to their “inner circle” not society..and if they have no inner circle so be it..ask for help them selves themselves and if they don’t…why should anyone lament about any athletic talent they have????

    These two must have made a wager on who Fats would bail out the fastest.

    Michael Jordan still blowing it as a front office man. Nice draft pick Mike. And Josh is a meathead.

  27. brownsmakemecrazy says: Jul 8, 2014 7:21 AM

    Only in Cleveland, can their only great draft pick since Bernie Kosar, get suspended for drug related issues. Of course it cant happen to all their horrible draft picks since 1999.
