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."

If he had said, "yes I have a gun".  The officer still would've searched the vehicle.  I'm not saying the officer is corrupt but they will exaggerate circumstances to their benefit when possible.  Marvin was wrong for putting himself in that position and of course going the wrong way on a one-way street.

You seem to have a lot of inside infomration regarding the events that transpired during this traffic stop...or maybe you should just keep your unfounded assumptions and BS agenda to yourslelf. You didnt make one coherent argument that was relative to MH's incident: he was going the wrong way down a one way street, he was the prime suspent in a shooting 3 years ago, then the prime suspect in the murder of the key witness in said shooting. He produced a gun permit then lied about having a gun and you are crying becuase his rights may have been comprimised. This guy is too dumb to stay out of his own way and deserves much harsher treatment than he is getting for his role in these incidences in his "community".

Nice statement about others kids as well. If we all raise our children to be as dumb a Harrison or as unaccountable as you sound maybe our kids will deserve the difficulty they face in life.

I may be missing something, but if he had proper registration of vehicle and gun permit, why was the gun confiscated?  Is lying to the cop enough to allow him to keep it?

Oh come down off your high horse and humor us common folk for a second. If "The boy had a pistol permit" then why would he say "No" when the officer asked if he had a weapon? Riddle me that jonvi.

Jonvi,
     You sound like a wanna be gangster to me.  Go Vanilla/Eminem Ice!  Yeah, let's cheer on someone to possibly later stalk and kill a man after a previous altercation.  What kind of morality do you live by?

???????????

I believe if you really read what I wrote...I am on the side of a persons constitutional rights.  End of my story.

Or he actually saw Marvin put the gun in the consol as stated earlier in the story.  OR he knew that Marvin Harrison had been a suspect in previous crimes involving a gun.  OR, all of the above.
