If you’re gonna go, GO BIG, right? University of Florida starting guard Erving “The Thief” Walker went on a crime rampage near the Gainesville campus, ordering a taco from a street vendor and then running off before paying. A nearby SWAT Team gave pursuit (okay the police report doesn’t say anything about a SWAT Team, but it makes for good visuals) and eventually, with the assistance of several squad cars ran down the basketball star.
When questioned by police about his reason for the crime spree, Walker told them he was “just playing around” as in, it was a joke, or prank, or more likely just the kind of thing a stupid person says who gets caught stealing a $2 food item that will likely give them diarrhea later. Walker now faces charges of with petty theft and resisting an officer without violence, both of which are misdemeanors.
No word on what happened to the taco, but police insiders suggest the evidence in this case may have been swallowed.
You remember NFL cheerleader Sarah Jones, don’t you? Several years ago she sued the website TheDirty.com for allegedly printing a story that she had sex with some of the Cincinnati players and either got or gave them an STD. She won a huge judgement as I recall, but not sure if she ever collected. (At right, Sarah Jones mug shot picture, and, below, in happier days as a hot NFL cheerleader.)
Anyway, she may need that money now after an Ohio grand jury indicted her on first-degree sexual abuse charges. Jones was also indicted on a charge unlawful use of electronic means to induce a minor to engage in sexual or other prohibited acts. Each of these charges are felonies that are each punishable by up to five years in prison. The charges stem not from her work as an NFL cheerleader, but as a teacher at Dixie Heights High School (OH). She’s accused of having an inappropriate relationship with a 15-year-old boy who could claim to have banged not only a hot teacher, but an NFL cheerleader.
Earlier this year Jones, 26, suddenly resigned from her job with the district, sighting “personal reasons” and the next day the school found out she was the focus of this grand jury investigation. Jones’ mother, Cheryl Jones, was also indicted on a charge of tampering with physical evidence in her daughter’s case.
