At some point, a Cincinnati Bengal getting arrested will be as much of a news story as thunderstorms in southern Ohio — it will probably make the local 5 o'clock news, but it won't make a blip on the national front. Anway, we're not quite there yet, so I'm going to go ahead with it: cornerback Johnathan Joseph makes nine:
Joseph is charged with possession of marijuana, a misdemeanor. He was taken into custody at 2:15 a.m. after a car in which he was a passenger was stopped… [A] sheriff’s deputy said he stopped the 1999 gold Ford vehicle for weaving in and out of lanes at a slow rate of speed. A police report states the vehicle crossed the center line three times.
The driver, Kelsy Glover of Fairfield, was charged with careless driving and operating on a suspended license. Glover told the deputy she was eating food and reaching for Joseph’s juice when she was stopped, according to the report… [T]he deputy searched a Super Bowl XL backpack Joseph was holding after smelling a strong odor of marijuana during the traffic stop. Marijuana was found in the backpack next to a video game system.
To be fair, it's not that big of a deal: it's just marijuana, after all. I don't leave my apartment without anything stronger than a couple of 8-balls, so I'm not one to judge.
But still, I think there's a lesson to be learned here. Never, ever, ever get into a car if a woman is going to be driving. Friends don't let friends drive female.
