Report: Wall charged with breaking and entering

John Wall, the nation's top-rated point guard who remains uncommitted, was been cited for breaking an entering by the Raleigh Police Department, WRAL out of Raleigh reported Monday morning.

The station reported that Wall was charged with misdemeanor breaking and entering in connection with an April 27 break-in at a home at 3924 Laurel Glen Drive in Raleigh. According to WRAL, an officer saw Wall leaving from the rear of the residence and was able to detain him. Two others were also charged -- one while walking along a nearby street, another when he returned to the residence.

How or if this will affect Wall's recruitment is unclear.

He is still publicly considering a number of schools -- among them Kentucky, Duke and Florida.

Report: Wall charged with breaking and entering

Thanks for the headsup Eightball.  In broad daylight,  "unforced entry",  2 guys and a gal.  What do you expect.  Dumb yes,  but that a case of kids-will-be-kids.  Who left the house open in the first place.  I agree with Telep in that it's much ado about nothing.  Unlike JamesOn Curry who purposely tried selling marajuana and did,  not only once but twice,  and to an undercover cop,  this is nothing more than kids looking for a little nookie hangout. 

Gee,  for the stuff I did at that age,  I should be under the jail cell.  I think the important question is - did you use protection John?

I love the thread of the responses, particularly those from UK fans who *might* want Wall on their team:  the house was empty, and he was just there for sex, so ... no big deal. 

As many others have pointed out: breaking and entering is still illegal, even if the house was empty, up for sale, and nothing was missing.  Beyond that, the judgment of a kid who, on the verge of the second-biggest decision of his life (after to enter the draft or not), screws up in this fashion in order to have a three-way somewhere is really, really, questionable.  Yeah, teenagers are stupid sometimes.  Yes, most teen-age boys would do "anything" for tail, but this guy's situation would dictate some greater care, and you HAVE TO consider that,

Yes, you can "cut the kid a break" but it makes you wonder about the risk ... and programs like UNC don't NEED to take the risk. 

Interesting though, that while UNC and Duke spporters are mostly waving bye-bye, UK supporters advocate leniency.  Interesting.

He never was going to UNC.  Roy has not offered a scholarship and it was just media propaganda about UNC recruiting him.  Actually it was Wall who wanted and requested UNC Basketball Department to contact him.  Roy did indeed call him at the Final Four to advise him that UNC had no intentions of recruiting him.  Obviously this is the reason that UNC has not made him a scholarship offer even with Lawson and Ellington gone.  One can only speculate that Roy saw something wrong with the kid's character. 

PS -Ty Ellington where is your other avatar?  - I like it better

Well you can rule out UNC as his choices now.  Roy W pulled a scholarship from JamesOn Curry, who was supposedly set up for pot.  HOWEVER, after seeing Curry's antics once he left college at OSU, it was a GOOD thing Roy did yank it.  He was busted for urinating in public.

Let Wall go Roy, we don't need him.

VICKtimless C-How does that happen?  Seriously, I have seen this on other posts and I really don't know how someone posts 37 lines of gobbledegook accidentally.  It is pretty funny though, considering your post is blasting Doyel for grammatical errors.

After UKNation's compelling..."argument," I dont think this will hurt him too much...ah to be young! I do stand on the idea that he wont be attending UNC, though I doubt that was going to happen anyway. If it does hurt him, well I just hope she had that blaze!

It could have been worse? Whether the house was vacant or not or whether there were other people with him does not matter at all. They broke into a house that was not their house - which is illegal. For THE top recruit out there and a future ka-millionaire to do something like this (kid or not) is wrong. A program such as Duke or UNC will not put their hands on this guy now - regardless of talent. He is bound for UK now or perhaps a smaller program that needs to have someone with this kind of ability in order to raise the "value" of their program. What this did do is take the advantage away from Wall in where he is going next year. A lapse in judgement on a young kids part that will not hurt his NBA value in the future, but possibly his 1 year college choice.
