Police confiscated a 9 mm handgun from former Colts wide receiver Marvin Harrison during a traffic stop Wednesday. Harrison was stopped three blocks from the Philadelphia garage he owns where, you may recall, in 2008, three people were injured in a shooting. Harrison’s name came up in that case, but he was never charged. Police are testing Harrison’s gun to see if it is related to the ’08 shooting.

ESPN the Magazine’s Shaun Assael described Wednesday’s incident:

"The 37-year-old former Pro Bowl receiver was driving the wrong way down the one-way street in a Cadillac Escalade when the patrolman stopped him along with the driver of a second car that was trailing him, the sources said.

According to the law enforcement sources, the patrolman saw Harrison place something that appeared to be a weapon in the seat console of his car. When the officer asked him to step out of the vehicle, Harrison produced a car registration and a permit to carry a weapon, both of which were in order. When he was asked whether he had a weapon, however, he answered no, the sources said.

At that point, the sources added, the officer said that he had probable cause to search the vehicle and found a weapon in the seat console."

Surely he's not dumb enough to still be carrying around the same gun if he did indeed shoot someone with it. Never underestimate the stupidity of powerful people.

I saw him through tinted windows of a $60K escalade that MH in fact had a gun.
First off, what does the price of his Escalade have to do with anything?  Are you saying he shouldn't be pulle dover because he has a nice vehicle?

Second, a $60k Escalade?  Really?

Third, if his tint is so dark that an officer couldn't possibly have seen him hiding something in the console then he should be ticketed for illegal window tint.

I'm sure Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are already writing up their racism speeches.

Roger Goodell will probabaly suspend him for 3 years, even if it was legal to ahve the gun, and if no charges are filed, hie will extended the suspension to 5 yearts. Does anybody care that Roger Goodell is acting like a Dictator???

Does anyone see what's wrong with this? The cop in no way saw him put a gun away because there is no chance in hell Harrison would have had it out in broad daylight like that. Isn't Harrison driving a tinted car too? Also, how does saying no to being asked about having a gun in your car probable cause to search for one. How does something appear to be a weapon? How do they THINK they see him put away a gun, a gun is hard to mistake for something else? If they thought he had a gun they would have told him to step out with his hands up, because cops will not risk going up to a window to a car they know has a gun in it. The cops took a random gamble, profiled, and got lucky. They then must have added on to their statement later they had just cause and saw what they appeared to be a gun

I was thinking the same thing. He could have just been putting a CD case or something similar away.
