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."

That's an incredibly stupid statement.  This isn't a race issue.  If he told the truth about having the gun with him he wouldn't have been searched...he has the permit, so that's a non issue.  He lied, got cought, seems to be hiding something and probably is.
The report does not specify what type of gun permit he has. In addition, there is no offering of how Local, County and State laws apply. Most places where I have lived have dramatically different laws regarding the transportation of a loaded/unloaded fire arm. Especially inside and outside of cities and residential zones.

Many require a firearm to be transported in the trunk, or at least a secured carrying case.

Where I live now, you can walk into a bank with a gun on your hip......

So without knowing these things, any speculation is ignorant.

Unfortunately he was born and raised in Philly. He was recently involved a year or two ago with a murder, a gun was registered in his name involved in the killing. He also buys up section8 housing.....phillies finest indeed

Awfully defensive of your boy MH. Don't let your own pitfalls bring him down with you. He got his money. He is your man you speak of so ask him for help.

Harrison immediately buried his credibility with the officer when he said no he didn't have a weapon in the car. You are a permit to carry this gun around, so there is no harm in saying yes you do have a weapon when you have all the proper paperwork. However, why did he feel the need to carry the gun with him? Did he not see what happened when Plaxico Burress carried a weapon with him? Sometimes these athletes make no sense at all to me. It seems there sensibility just goes straight out the window. In recent years with all the gun incidents, sexual assault, regular assault, you would think these athletes would act like adults and leave all this stuff behind. But for some reason it seems like there is something new every week that makes you scratch your head at their behavior.

Nope it would be admissible everywhere in the US.  If it looked like a weapon it adds to his probable cause.  The fact that it was a weapon only substantiates the search.

He implicated himself....why would he give the cop the permit in the first place if he didnt have a gun?  The only man that is restricting our freedoms is you Jonvi...you are restricting clean air and common sense from reaching your brain.  If he just gave him his drivers license and nothing else would the cop even have a reason to ask about a gun?  Nope, guess that 3rd rate Syracuse education is finally paying off.

Exactly....now let's fast forward to something else...don't drive the wrong way down the street, the cop doesn't pull you over, you never get asked about a gun or anything, and you continue on your way.  Or of course the obvious....if you didn't have a gun on you, "WHY THE $%*^ WOULD YOU SHOW THE COP A CONCEALED WEAPONS PERMIT???" How insanely stupid must you be, Harrison obviously is a complete idiot, and Spot you are obviously a message troll..a racist message troll, but a troll none the less.

He was asked if he had a gun ? As it pertains to the CCW  permit ? If it's not on him, he doesn't have a gun.
