Good for D'Onta!
Interesting, the guy flashing a hook em is Alfred Blue (from LSU)
So if the gun was clean and no pot found on him and he wasnt high why bring him in so he wasn't operating the vehicle under a substance what did they even arrest him?
Smooth - good lawyer.
Maybe all of that information was not readily apparent at the time of the arrest.
Gun laws in Texas, absent a CHL, generally only allow for "Defense to prosecution". Travelling a certain distance, travelling to an event or location where the firearm is to be used (i.e., a gun range), the gun being secured, all these things can only be used as a defense. They do not prevent an officer from making an arrest. Texas law also does not differentiate between loaded and unloaded firearms. Ergo, gun + pot in the same car, the officer will always make an arrest and let the system figure it out.
This is why I feel EVERYONE who has a handgun should get their CHL, even if they never intend to carry. Of course, with pot involved, he was still screwed.
If I were advising a young man about to start an NFL career, I think Rule One would be: NEVER allow your friends to get into your car. Or put anything in your car. Or touch it. Or even look at it.
Actually, this would be Rule One-A. Rule One would be: NOTHING GOOD EVER HAPPENS in a strip club parking lot, so don't go there.
I have my LTC, so I'm not sure, but I believe the law changed a couple of years ago, allowing one to have have a handgun in your car without an LTC. The antiquated "traveling" requirement was discarded. I can't figure out why he was charged with the weapons violation either. Surely his lawyer is giving us the whole story. Oh wait...
maybe it's a tack on drug law? possession of mj - break law 1. have gun while in possession (even if legal gun) - break law 2.
That could well be the case.
Thank heavens for that. Thanks for posting.
