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.
