Last time we checked in on Kenyatta Jones, the former Patriots linebacker was trying to urinate on a nightclub’s dance floor. Now Kenyatta must be peeing his pants for real, as he was among the 41 folks arrested in a recent Tampa-area drug bust.
The ST. PETERSBURG TIMES reports that rather than waiting for police to come & take him away, the current Tampa Bay Storm player turned himself in around 4 p..m. Wednesday afternoon. He was placed on the wanted list after authorities saw Jones take part in a drug deal:
Tampa police spokeswoman Laura McElroy said officers overheard him arranging to buy from one of the dealers, then watched him as he purchased less than a gram of cocaine and less then a gram of marijuana.
During the entire drug sweep, police seized “16 kilograms of powder cocaine valued at up to $240,000, 25 pounds of marijuana, 100 grams of crack cocaine, 16 firearms, 23 vehicles and $239,000 in cash.”
So, is Kenyatta supplementing his Arena Football income by serving the Tampa underworld as one of it’s drug kingpins? Not exactly:
“He was not a significant player in the investigation,” McElroy said.
Sounds like his career in New England. BA-ZING!
