Sunday was a day to remember in the National Football League. It started with Blake Bortles silencing the haters by having an extremely decent performance in a sorta big spot. That stunner was then topped by the last-second Miracle in Minnesota where Stefon Diggs is still celebrating on the sidelines of U.S. Bank Stadium. Now a lot of people may think Marcus Williams had the worst performance of anyone in the NFL yesterday, but Denver Broncos receiver Carlos Henderson also threw his hat in the ring for consideration.
From USA Today:
Carlos Henderson’s rough start with the Denver Broncos just got worse Sunday when the rookie receiver was arrested for possession of a controlled substance in West Monroe, La.
“We are aware of the issue involving Carlos Henderson and are gathering more information,’’ the Broncos said in a statement Sunday night.
Henderson was a passenger in a black GMC Yukon driven by Alejandra Aviles-Jimenez around noon Sunday, according to a West Monroe Police Department affidavit. An officer stopped the vehicle for going 84 mph in a 60-mph zone.
Carlos, I’m afraid you’re not in Colorado anymore. Interesting strategy going for a blunt ride in the deep south.
A search allegedly recovered pieces of marijuana near the passenger seat, as well as a partially-filled water bottle with an extinguished marijuana cigar inside, according to a KNOE.com report.
When officers found “thick green residue” in Henderson’s mouth, he denied eating any marijuana before the traffic stop, but did admit to smoking earlier Sunday. After he was arrested on the marijuana possession charge at 12:55 p.m. Sunday, he was quickly bonded out of jail.
Henderson going full Super Troopers. I like to think that Carlos really believed that swallowing the stash would thwart the police from arresting him. In his mind, he thought he had made the heads-up play that was best for the team. That’s a great locker room guy right there. So selfless.
Unfortunately for him, it didn’t pan out. Where there’s smoke, there’s fire. Or in this case, where it looks like smoke, smells like smoke, and has the residue left behind from smoke, it’s definitely smoke, which means there was a fire. Police promptly booked him on possession charges.
Valiant attempt, though. Certainly can’t fault the man for effort..
