Cardinals FB Dennis McKinley.
Apparently, he couldn’t live on a professional football salary so he was smuggling in marijuana from Mexico, storing it in a warehouse and then shipping it out via tractor trailer (not to be confused with the Hornet’s forward) to major cities in the United States. McKinley was the “mastermind” of a drug smuggling operation. Oh, I’m sorry… allegedly. I love it. You win the athletic lottery and still try to sell drugs? What is his excuse? Just trying to find a way to get out of the ghetto? Was the 1500+ lbs of pot for personal use? (ironic that Cypress Hill’s “legalize” just popped up on my iPod.)
