Punch drunk

By MATT TAIBBI  |  October 28, 2009

Triple trouble
Former Temple hoops star Dionte Christmas had a fun night last Thursday, getting pulled over by the cops and then having them discover that he was a) carrying a loaded 9mm semiautomatic pistol, b) driving without a license, and c) not even driving his own car, but instead one belonging to promising Philadelphia 76ers big man Marreese Speights.

The funniest part is that reporters managed to reach Christmas’s agent, Andre Buck, before Christmas did. All Buck could tell the press was, “I’m sure there is some explanation.”

Forty points for the firearm charge. Loaded weapons are muy peligroso!
