To which the cop on a dashcam video responded, “You’re going to jail.” And it’s all caught on video for his future use in his college application package.
For David Allen, 18, the leading scorer of Highland Park High School’s basketball team (TX), tonight was supposed to be the first game in the state’s playoff. It’s doubtful he will be playing after being arrested last week for driving while intoxicated. Allen’s car allegedly hit a parked car a week ago Saturday and he reportedly fled the scene.
When officers finally caught up with the star athlete, he initially told cops he had no been drinking and then admitted to “only a few sips” from a friend’s drink. To which the officer in the video responded: “A couple of sips? You can barely stand up.” Eventually Allen blew a 0.122% BAC, well above the 0.08% to be considered a drunk driver, and about 0.122% higher than someone under the age of 21 should be blowing.
The saddest part of the video? After Allen is handcuffed and taken into custody, you can hear him telling the cops about a basketball game that he was supposed to play in Tuesday night. Says Allen, “I won’t be able to play in the playoffs. Our opening game is Tuesday.”
Responded the cop in deadpan, “You’re going to jail.”
Come on, it’s just a joke. We’re not racist and it’s NOT a label, so what’s the problem.
So said all the white players on the Kenmore East High School (NY) girls basketball team, who have now been suspended for what can only be called the worst pre-game team chant ever. Especially after the lone African-American player, Tyra Batts, pleaded with them to stop the tradition adding, “I would argue about it … and they would tell me they’re not racist, it’s just a word, it’s not a label.”
So Batts finally had enough one day, got into it with another player over the use of the slur and eventually it adults at the school found out. (Current and past coaches claim they never heard the chant and must have been done AFTER they left the locker room.) Now the other members of the team have been suspended and must attend cultural sensitivity training. The will also serve a one-game suspension later in the season and–this is the best part–the good sportsmanship trophy awarded last year has been rescinded.
“Just don’t talk about anything and we can fix this.”
“You guys look we can fix this, we just need everyone’s help.”
If there’s anything worse than high school sports hazings, it’s high school jocks trying to cover their tracks and derail an investigation into what happened. Above are Facebook comments from members of a team accusing of a really disgusting new hazing technique.
Details aren’t real clear, but apparently members of the Andover High (MA) boys basketball team allegedly decided that wedgies and wet willies weren’t good enough to haze the new members of the team. No, according to authorities, at least two “ringleaders” forced younger team members to participate ina game of “wet biscuit,” where the loser was–we’re not making this up!–forced to eat a semen-soaked cookie.
Nothing says “Welcome to the team” liking eating baked goods covered in one of your teammate’s DNA.
Who thinks of this stuff, and more importantly, who thinks of this stuff and then creates a Facebook page where the goal is to gather everyone on the team after school and come up with a plan to stonewall the investigation into this incident.
So far, at least five students have been kicked off the basketball team and and some kind of school suspensions. The two ringleaders, also known as the inventors of “The Wet Biscuit Game” have been expelled.
