Worst Weekend Ever (Handcuffs Edition): Bengals Shocked, Reds Get Swept and Pacman Gets "Arrested"
(That really is Adam Jones pictured above and yes, he really is in handcuffs. The picture came from this guy, via twitter)
Handcuffs are fun in the bedroom, but they're not much fun anywhere else.
Cole Hamels handcuffed the Reds line-up last night.
The Cincinnati police department literally handcuffed Pacman Jones yesterday afternoon and the Bengals metaphorically handcuffed their fan base and bent them over backwards when they lost to the Buccaneers.
By the way, Jones was handcuffed because he drove onto a sidewalk.
According to him and witnesses, Jones drove on the sidewalk to avoid hitting another car. Police decided to detain him because (he's black) someone in their data base named "Adam Jones" had a warrant out for his arrest. When cops realized they had the wrong Adam Jones, they released Pacman. He was in custody for almost an hour.
