If I recall correctly, “These days, everyone needs a side hustle” is Uber’s tagline, not codeine’s. Houston Texans defensive lineman Vince Wilfork’s kid D’Aundre Wilfork must’ve gotten the two confused though, because I’m pretty sure he was dealing codeine. That is, at least, if his recent arrest while possessing a whole ass-load of codeine is any indication. (Feels like a solid, though not definitive, one.)
From the Houston Chronicle:
Wilfork allegedly had 381 grams of codeine in his possession when he was arrested just after midnight on Dec. 21. The arrest occurred after a traffic stop at 2495 S. Friendswood Drive, according to Friendswood police records.
The suspect is charged with possession of a controlled substance in Penalty Group 4., a second-degree felony punishable by 2 to 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000.
I mean, why? Unless this is some sort of misunderstanding I’m having a hard time trying to figure out why a rich guy’s kid would feel like he needed money badly enough to deal. (If that is, in fact, what was going on.) Your dad is in the NFL, man. Just steal his shit and put it on eBay.
I felt the same way when I heard the (insistently relayed to me but also unsubstantiated) rumors a few years ago about Maty Mauk dealing blow at Mizzou. Mauk didn’t come from anywhere near as much money as Wilfork, but like Wilfork he clearly also didn’t need money that badly. Maybe they’re just addicted to the danger of selling mediocre drugs to 19 year olds? If that’s the case, and guys like Mauk and Wilfork need a little illegal excitement in their lives, then they should’ve just done like Jameis Winston. NO NO NO I’M NOT TALKING ABOUT THAT TIME, I MEANT THE SHOPLIFTING.
Wilfork has already been kicked off of the University of Houston’s football team for the arrest, though apparently he didn’t dress this year.
There’s no way going home to your pissed off dad, who happens to be giant and scary ass Vince Wilfork, is anything less than terrifying. Good luck with that, D’Aundre. And also with your felony drug charges. Good luck with those too.
