The Lord works in mysterious ways. Earlier this year, he reportedly told promising SF 49er running back Glen Coffee to leave a lucrative career in the NFL to join the ministry. Some questioned the timing of the decision, but Coffee is a grown man and can decide these things for himself.
God apparently also told Coffee to drive a Cadillac fast in Florida without proper registration or insurance. And when cops in Fort Walton Beach pulled him over last week, they also found a loaded and cocked pistol in the car. God must have been expecting trouble.
On the plus side, if convicted, Coffee would get 3 to 5 years to preach to his fellow prisoners.
Story and pic from out friends at TMZ:
Glen Coffee — the former San Francisco 49ers star who recently retired after one season to pursue a religious calling — was arrested for illegally carrying a “cocked” automatic pistol in his car … and TMZ has obtained his mug shot.
According to police in Fort Walton Beach, Florida … 23-year-old Coffee was pulled over for speeding … but cops quickly discovered that Glen’s vehicle — a 2008 Cadillac — had no registration or insurance.
Because the vehicle was deemed “unlawful to be on the roadway,” cops called for the Cadillac to be towed … but first, they ran a quick search — and found a “black 380 SIG Sauer automatic pistol.”
According to the police report, obtained by TMZ … “The pistol was recovered with the hammer ‘cocked’ to the rear. It was located in the center console … readily accessible to Coffee.”
