Marvin Harrison Has Gun Confiscated

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."

Marvin Harrison Has Gun Confiscated

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. If you have a permit and everything's in order, yet you still say "No" when asked if there's a gun in your car, I would think it's safe to say you're obviously guilty of something.  What a moron.  If he would've said yes the officer would've have taken the gun back to his car while he wrote up a ticket for driving the wrong way, and then gave it back to him after all was said and done.  But lying about it shows the cop that there's more reason to research his weapon and now he'll be in a world of "ca-ca".  That guy he allegedly shot wound up murdered a little while ago.  Something tells me there's going to be more coming out about this soon.
