Ochocinco gets pulled over by cops, tweets it

We may still be without football but Bengals wide receiver Chad Ochocinco has been plenty busy this offseason.

If you've been out of the loop, Eye on Football colleague Will Brinson provides the Cliffs Notes: "Let's see here … *flips through file* … he's ridden bulls, he's reportedly lost his work ethic, he's scouted incoming rookies, he's threatened to change his name (again), he's promised to wrestle alligators, he's tried out for an MLS team, he's -- ah, here we go."

And that was before Ochocinco threatened to whup Marvin Lewis' ass and took a NASCAR joyride.

So it's not altogether surprising that Ochocinco is again in the news, and it's news solely because he tweeted it. On Thursday, Chad was pulled over by Cincinnati police for having his windows too darkly tinted.



It was with some hesitation that we wrote about this given how Ochocinco responded to Yahoo's coverage. But since we're still waiting for actual football, and this is tangentially related to the NFL, we took a chance.

Plus, we love Chad.

I can't believe some of the crap posted here!!! I knew there were morons in this world, but my goodness!!  Racist cops and Ocho lying to the cops???  Really?!?!?  He broke the law, the cop pulled him over, he made a joke with the officer, got a citation, and went on his way.  I thought it was a humorous look at a meaningless citation for Chad that won't go any further. 

I wasn't aware that every black man pulled over by the cops automatically makes for a racist issue and every smart-alec comment made to a cop means you're providing false information.

Lighten up people, dang!

Bwahahaha lilpig is apparently an accurate nic name based on your hilarious "Are you now providing false and misleading statements to the police?" drabbel. You make it sound like he derailed a kidnapping, not had a little fun with a cop. Get off your high horse pig, theres at least two lines in your four line post that qualify you for a regular spot on "The View".

"the racist police in cincinnati targeting rich African-Americans with nice cars---it never changes."


Whats so ignorant about this statement is, With the windows being so dark... I doubt the officer knew what race the driver was.

What happened to the first amendment

I have no problem with Mendenhall stating his opinion, because he is allowed to under the first amendment of the US Constitution.  It will also be the right of the home fans in New York to state their opinions whenever Mendenhall plays there.  Freedom, liberty, and all that...

This is almost like a bad "moron" joke.  He doesn't want to get pulled over for Driving While Black, so he tints his windows.
