Breaking: Marvin Harrison Wanted In Shooting Investigation (Seriously)

Friday, May 02, 2008

I wish I was kidding, and this will probably everywhere soon, so I'll keep it brief. From ESPN via Beast Mode comes this late breaking story that Colts WR Marvin Harrison is being investigated for a shooting that took place in his hometown of Philly this week.....

The source said the alleged victim came into the bar, Playmakers, around 5 p.m. and engaged in an argument with Harrison, who was at the bar. The victim then left the bar, heading to his car, with Harrison following. Gunfire broke out, the victim was hit in the hand, and a young girl was slightly injured by flying glass from a car that apparently was hit by a bullet.

Police came to scene, but the victim did not identify a shooter. On Wednesday, according to the source, ballistic tests showed that the gun that had fired the shots was a custom-made Belgian weapon, and police determined that Harrison owned such a gun.

Police then went to a Philadelphia car wash owned by Harrison to question him about the gun. Harrison admitted owning such a weapon, but claimed it never left his suburban Philadelphia home.

However, the source said the gun was discovered in a bucket at the car wash, and tests showed that it had fired seven bullets that matched those found at the scene.
Well then. I guess it's good that the Colts took Pierre Garcon in the sixth round of the Draft then huh? If there was someone in the NFL that I would never expect this to happen to it's Harrison, and in all fairness Harrison hasn't been charged or arrested at all. This is also a report ESPN is picking up from WIP in Philadelphia, so we'll see what develops. I'm very surprised that the "Leader" picked it up so quick.

I just heard about this on Mike O'Meara's show. Curiouser and curiouser, as "they" say...

You're surprised ESPN picked it up so quick?? They've proven that they'll sacrifice their credibility to be the first to break a story, especially in the NFL. (As a Giants fan, I'll never forgive Chris Mortensen for claiming Eli would miss the entire season last September.)

And everybody thought I was crazy when I said this guy was a no-good punk who tarnishes the game with his antics.

Marvin has the best publicist in the nation. Everybody thinks he is all goody, goody, but that isn't the case. He has a bit of an entourage and they've been involved in altercations before.

I believe they beat down a guy in downtown Indy, and also got into a fight with a guy at the Pro Bowl a few years back. Somehow that all got swept under the rug. I was living in Indy at the time and you barely heard about it there.
