L'Ville Football Player Tries to Start Own Car RamRod

I was jonesing for a Hersey Bar.
Just when I think the off season shenanigans cool off, Louisville goes and makes my evening. With Leather via The Chard Chronicle via reports (be sure to look at the picture on With Leather) that Louisville senior cornerback Rod Council has been arrested for armed robbery in Tennessee stemming from an incident in North Carolina.

Mr. Council apparently entered a convenience store at around 4:15 in the morning and pulled a 9mm Uzi on the clerk, the only person in the store. He then demanded all the money, the clerk's cell phone, then drove away in a silver Chevrolet Impala. The vehicle was later spotted in Tennessee where he was detained until authorities from NC could pick up the suspect.

Rocco Gasparro, assistant sports information director, released this statement on behalf of the university:

“We were informed today that senior cornerback Rod Council was arrested early this morning. Based upon the information we received, Rod Council has been permanently dismissed from our team immediately. We do not tolerate that type of behavior in our football program. Fortunately, no innocent bystanders were injured or harmed in the process.”

Card Chronicle states that had he not been arrested, and put in a quality senior season, he most likely would have been drafted high in the 2009 NFL draft. This can only be good for Syracuse’s changes at back to back wins against the Cardinals.

Very interesting. So this kid decides I’m going to get an Uzi, go to a store, and get some pocket change. Solid. Goodbye football career, goodbye freedom, and goodbye tight ass. Of course, the suspect is innocent until proven guilty. However, it sounds like this young man’s lawyer has their work cut out for them. Of course, I would throw the book at him, but that is just because I want to be a prosecutor, I am a hard ass, and I watch an awful lot of Law & Order.
