The details on James Cook’s arrest are… um, arresting.

Georgia sophomore running back James Cook was arrested for having an open container of alcohol early Saturday after police found an unsealed 1.75 liter glass bottle of Hennessy Cognac behind the driver’s seat of the 2017 Dodge Charger he was driving.

A Bulldog offensive lineman was in the passenger seat next to Cook when the vehicle was pulled over at about 12:45 a.m. Saturday, according to an Athens Clarke-County police incident report obtained on Monday.

Police patrolling on East Clayton Street downtown observed the vehicle’s dealer tag, but could not see the expiration date. When the police moved behind the vehicle, Cook’s car switched lanes, alerting the officer that “the driver was attempting to evade me checking the temporary tag,” the report said. The car pulled into a handicapped space and police noticed that the temporary tag number indicated an unknown insurance status.

When police turned on their emergency lights, Cook and the other player exited the vehicle but were told to get back in the car.

Cook told the officer he did not have his driver’s license and he was a Georgia football player.

The officer smelled burned marijuana, the report said. Cook said there wasn’t any more marijuana because he smoked it.

Another unit was sent to the scene. Marijuana “shake” was seen on the center console and Cook admitted to smoking marijuana, according to the report.

The players and vehicle were searched. The offensive lineman—who is not being named by the Banner-Herald because he was not charged—told police he placed a Glock Model 19 pistol in the glove compartment.

Let me see if I’ve got this straight.  We’ve got:

  • an open bottle of cognac
  • a dealer tag w/o proof of insurance
  • parking in a handicapped space
  • invalid driver’s license
  • marijuana smell/admission of marijuana use
  • pistol in the glove compartment

All that, and the only charges Cook was arrested for were misdemeanor charges of having an open container of alcohol in a vehicle and driving while unlicensed.  The unnamed offensive lineman got off scot-free.

Jimmy Williamson would have sought the death penalty.  If that ain’t proof of a new sheriff in town, I don’t know what is.

Ridin’ in Mudcat’s car

Dammit.

According to the Athens-Clarke County jail logs, Georgia running back James Cook was arrested on two misdemeanor charges on Saturday morning.

Cook was arrested on one count of driving with an open container of alcoholic beverage in the passenger area and one count of having an invalid drivers license. Bond for each misdemeanor was $1,000. He was booked at 1:45 a.m. on Saturday and released on bond at 2:39 a.m.

Some things never change.

Trick or treat, MFer!

It’s getting harder and harder to keep up with the soap opera in Columbia.  This is kind of like comic relief:

Aubrey C. Walker, a USC student manager on Muschamp’s staff, was let go from his position after being arrested on Halloween night. Columbia police records show he was charged with public disorderly conduct and taken to jail after physically fighting with another man in Columbia’s Five Points district.

Walker apparently took offense to the man’s Halloween costume, which depicted Muschamp holding a sizable check.

LOL.

You will be shocked, shocked to learn the next part of the saga.

The costumed man’s name was not listed on the police report. But with the incident happening at a crosswalk in the middle of Harden Street on Halloween night, several people witnessed it.

Walker “appeared to be intoxicated” at the time, the police report says, and continued to be “loud and boisterous” when an officer attempted to stop the fight. He was taken to jail and released the next day on a $257.50 personal recognizance bond.

“I heard one of the cops say, ‘He said he works for USC football,’” one person who witnessed the incident said. “I thought, ‘Oh, that makes sense.’ He never said a word the entire time but he didn’t like that check.”

Perfect.

“He added that alcohol is believed to be a factor in the incident.”

Shot.   (See what I did there?)

Two lifelong friends house-sitting east of Bend got in an alcohol-fueled argument, then a fight over a college football game Saturday afternoon, prompting one man to get a shotgun and shoot the other, Deschutes County sheriff’s deputies said. The Bend man was jailed on attempted murder and other charges…

Detectives learned Honey and the other man were at the home, watching the LSU-Alabama football game. An argument escalated into a physical fight, which in turn led Honey to get a shotgun with a birdshot shell and shoot the other man once in the head and neck area as the man walked away in the driveway, Bailey said.

Chaser.

Bailey added that the man was not barricaded in the home and reportedly went back inside to finish watching the game before surrendering to deputies.

What are the odds PAWWWLLL!!! books this dude for his show this week?

This seems excessive.

One more thing to be aware of at a football game:

These overpriced beers at a football game cost the vendor more than the fan.

A beer vendor at Sunday’s Miami Dolphins game was arrested after charging a fan $724 for two beers on a personal credit card reader, according to the Miami Herald. Nathaniel Collier is facing charges of third-degree grand theft and possession of a skimming device and was issued a $10,000 bond, according to Miami-Dade Corrections and Rehabilitation records.

Collier, 33, didn’t use the credit card reader Hard Rock Stadium provides to vendors, according to a police report obtained by the Herald. The fan received an alert, which included Collier’s name, for the excessive charge.

I have to admit if something like that happened at Sanford Stadium, it would far more likely be due to carelessness, rather than outright criminality.

Then again, when you factor in the Magill Society contribution, three hundred and sixty bucks for a beer doesn’t seem so criminal.
