San Francisco Giants pitcher and Alanis Morrisette lookalike Tim Lincecum was found in possession of marijuana after being pulled over in a routine traffic stop. Hey, there are a lot worse things than pot that you could put in your mouth. Dave Coulier, for instance.
Lincecum was pulled over for doing 74 in a 60-mph zone near the Washington-Oregon border and turned over 3.3 grams of the sticky when the cop on the scene detected the smell of it. But how did he know what pot smells like?
Lincecum, 25, entered a plea of not guilty through his attorney Monday, according to court records obtained by The Associated Press. He is scheduled to appear in court Dec. 22 and faces fines of $622 for the misdemeanor charges, police said.[..]
Giants spokesman Jim Moorehead said the team was “still gathering information and has no comment at this time.”
The San Jose Mercury News also points out that recreational drug use is not punishable under MLB’s current drug policy. I guess to be punished for that in baseball, his name has to be on some anonymous listed and then leaked to the New York Times in the dark corner of some parking garage. And yeah, I guess Lincecum doesn’t really look like Alanis.
