Wide receiver Terry Glenn hasn’t played in the NFL since 2006 when he was with the Dallas Cowboys before having to miss the 2007 season with a knee injury. He was then cut by the Cowboys before the 2008 season started because of that knee, and sat around hoping somebody would sign him to a deal. They didn’t, which gave Terry a lot of free time.
Now you know that old saying, “Idle hands are the devil’s playground?” That’s a stupid saying - shut up, Grandma. Still, at times it does ring true. For instance, since Terry Glenn has no football season to prepare for he really doesn’t have anything to do. So that gives him a lot of time to just get really drunk at a hotel, smoke some weed, and then roam the halls naked. Because, you know, why not? Too bad other visitors of the hotel have to ruin things and call the cops.
According to Irving police, Glenn, the Dallas Cowboys’ leading receiver in 2005 and an integral part of their 2006 playoff team, was arrested at a hotel last week on charges of public intoxication and possession of marijuana. He also had four outstanding traffic warrants issued in Roanoke.
Irving PD spokesman David Tull says officers were summoned to the Extended Stay Deluxe Hotel near Meadow Creek Drive and Highway 114 on a suspicious person call. A source familiar with the incident says Glenn had been seen roaming the hotel’s hallways naked, but Irving PD could not confirm that account.
The arrest happened on January 25th and Glenn posted bond about nine hours laster on January 26th. This is the third time Glenn has been arrested, that we know of anyway, as he was arrested for assaulting the mother of his son back in 2001, and for taking a leak behind a fast-food restaurant dumpster back in 2005.
Now you would think that this latest arrest would probably kill any chance of Glenn returning to the NFL in 2009, but I’m guessing this incident only increases the odds that the Cowboys will come calling by 900%.
