Special Treatment of (former) Griz Player Trumaine Johnson?
Was anyone surprised to hear that former Griz football player Trumaine Johnson was arrested on a DUI last night? Probably not. The fact that he’s a NFL cornerback for the St. Louis Rams is whatt made it just a little out of the ordinary.
Only a little.
Reading the Missoulian report, it seems that Trumaine Johnson refused the breathalyzer.
Well now, I thought, “doesn’t he realize we get warrants now in this state when people do that?“
But as I read through the Missoulian’s report, it appears the City of Missoula Police merely cited former Griz player Trumaine Johnson for refusing the breath test, along with another citation for driving without headlights and the DUI charge.
Awww, isn’t that nice?
So Johnson will get off with some minor traffic tickets. No evidence for the DUI will make that a tough conviction.
I’m sure it was jet lag.
He was caught at Front and Owen. Which is St. Patrick’s Hospital property, and about 3 blocks from the Emergency Room entrance where blood tests are, I suspect, pretty easy to obtain.
Not only is Johnson getting special treatment from the City of Missoula PD, it looks like the NFL has already decided his fate – they’re gonna hit him up with a little dent in his beer money.
Real leadership failure all the way around. You wonder why we have situations like we have here and in Steubenville and scores of other communities? It’s a systemic failure.
One of those “it takes a village” moments.
