knowing cops he was probably not speeding and they just pulled over a young adult simply because it was 230 in the morning.

Thank God you are retired. You were probably a real jerk when you were on the job.

Let me guess. Overweight, manned speed traps while shoving down donuts
and never did any real police work that involved making an effort.
Oh no yea

Just another reason not to like UCONN. Calhoun was by this kid's side when he almost died and then Price rewards him with stealing laptops and lying about it and now this incident. People wonder why so many people in CT are UCONN'd out and this is a good example.

Boy, thanks so verty much for reporting such a monster story. I couldn't have slept tonight knowing that such a serious crime went unreported. To the morons who always blame the police, I pity your ignorance about what policework is really like. To the courant, keep festering bad feelings by reporting insignificant stories....way to justify your existence!

Actually the laptop incident was before he had health problems. Your right though it is good to pass judgement when you have no idea what you are talking about.

Sorry to offend you but c'mon, just as in any occupation there are good ones and bad ones. Some work hard and some are just looking towards the end of their shift. Retired Cop in Springfield comment was sarcastic, stupid and thoughtless. He obviously has an agenda.

Blah... blah... blah... How many of you natural-born hypocrites wake up with wings on your back and refer to St. Peter as "Boss man?"

Beat USF, Marquette and ND and hope for a different outcome at Pitt, and we might be looking at another #1 seed for the Mighty Husky.

Slow down A.J.

Why is it always the cops fault? If he (indeed) was speeding - he should have been stopped. What if he was on alcohal, and someone got killed? What if he was running away from a robbery or a drug charge? Whatever the reason, more speeders and other violaters should be stopped. By his own emmision he got stopped and got caught without proper papers. He had one encounter - you'd think he learned, but, no he is the man, He'll have his momma take care of matters.Isn't there a curfew for athletes? It's not UCONNS problem. Book em Danno. Calhoun suspend him for the rest of the season, he's giving you a bad name. Of coarse the NBA will be happy to have him, let him go.HE'S A DISTRACTION. You are too special of a Coach - to keep losers. GOOD LUCK J. C. FOR THE REST OF THE SEASON.

You sound more like someone who has an anger problem than a concerned citizen.

So anyone who is driving that late at night is automatically drunk? All I am saying is I have been a target of this as well I was actually driving under the speed limit and completely sober driving home from my girlfriends and I got pulled over for not having a luminated lisence plate and got interrogated and my car searched. When I got home what do you know the light was not out on my lisence plate. This has happened a number of times.

22 years old and needs his mamma to fix things up for him. Not a good ad for UCONN, especially one using up a scholarship, that a deserving kid could use.
