Maurice Clarett Story Gets Even Crazier

ESPN is reporting that after leaving Ohio State, tailback-turned-thug Maurice Clarett was being bankrolled by an alleged member of an Israeli crime organization. The alleged mob enforcer gave Clarett cash, a BMW, bodyguards, drivers and beachfront lodging in Malibu, with the understanding that he would be reimbursed and receive 60 percent of Clarett's rookie contract. But when Clarett busted out of the NFL and couldn't repay his "debt," the alleged mobster cut him off and Clarett moved back to his hometown of Youngstown, Ohio.

As such, Clarett's attorney claims his client was in possession of the firearms last week in order to protect himself from "mob activity. "

While this explains the four guns, the hatchet and the bulletproof vest found in Clarett's car at the time of his arrest, it still doesn't explain the lint roller.

Ok, we admit it. We're just happy to get to use this picture again.

Sounds very similar to the Reggie Bush / New Era Gaming saga. But I heard the FBI is now investigating Reggie for point shaving in the Rose Bowl.

I was listening to ESPN Gamenight and they claimed he had a CD of Ohio state inmates singing children's favorites.

I'm glad to see the lint roller on the seat finally gtting its due, but am I the only one who would like to know what CD is visible on the center console? Finally, we could have ths answer to the question, what does Maurcie Clarett listen to to drown out the voices in his head?

I hope he at least has the decency to carry clean underwear in that glove compartment.

the CD is something by DMX - not sure which one. Good killing music, no doubt.

btw - lintrollers supposedly remove fingerprints....

Cock D-

Thanks for clearing that up. It looks like a horse on that CD. Thought it might be something like the soundtrack from Brockback Mountain.

cockengr said...

cock D. that is the first I have heard about lint rollers and fingerprints.

mystery solved.

do you pursue violent crime on the side, as well?

Nah its for enforcement....nothing scares an individual more than the words "say hello to my little lint roller"

If you listen to DMX after gettin' your Goose on, acquiring a hatchet suddenly makes all the sense in the world.
