Much of this week’s Cheap Seats was ripped from the police blotter during the Chris Webber Era of D.C. hoops, a time when local cops handcuffed more Bullets and Wizards than they did IMF protesters.
Nobody got popped during those years more than Rod Strickland. His rap sheet as an NBA player included multiple arrests for assault, three DUI busts, an indecent exposure charge, disorderly conduct on U Street, ripping a gash in a teammate’s forehead in a hotel room brouhaha, and, best of all, an indictment for allegedly KO’ing a waitress in the parking lot of a T.G.I. Friday’s in Bowie.
So it’s a little shocking to see what Strickland is up to these days. He’s a role model.
I’m not buying it.
