ESPN Analyst Arrested On Felony Cocaine Possession Charges

Monday, February 09, 2009

Jamal Anderson has been an analyst on ESPN's First Take for around a year, and on Saturday night the Former Falcons RB was arrested on felony cocaine possession, and misdemeanor marijuana possession charges, late Saturday night/early Sunday morning. From the AJC via Online Sports Guys....

“The patron had heard what he thought was sniffing from inside the stall and told the off-duty officer,” Fulton County Police spokesman Otis Redmond said. “The officer went into the restroom, heard the same sniffing and peered over the stall door. He saw Jamal Anderson and Mark Hudson sniffing two lines of powdered cocaine off the back of the toilet.”

Police found a 1-inch square bag of cocaine and a marijuana cigarette inside Anderson’s pocket. The men were arrested without incident and booked into the Fulton County Jail for felony possession of cocaine, Redmond said. Anderson was also cited for misdemeanor possession of marijuana.
Now I'm not condoning Anderson's actions in the least, but how many of you would run to a cop if you heard "sniffing noises" in a bathroom? I'm guessing just about none of you. Either way though, a crime is a crime, and cocaine possession is serious business. I wouldn't expect to see Anderson back on ESPN's airwaves anytime soon.

I don't know if I would narc on them personally but I wouldn't be mad at someone if they did narc. And the "sniffing" sound someone makes when they're doing a line of coke is pretty distinctive. He's a dumbass.

I hope I never land at that bar with a sinus infection.

They should go to jail for sniffing anything off of a public toilet. That is fucking gross. Would you like some stray pubes with your coke, Jamal?

If he returns to First Take (which I seriously doubt), he could hook up with Dana Jacobson.

He doesn't mind a few pubes, he's a dirty bird.

Anyways, ESPN pissed me off with their hypocrisy on this. They reported the story, and then said they couldn't comment any further on the incident, and that he's innocent until proven guilty. This coming just days after the Phelps pic shows up and they spend hours upon hours talking about it.
