Raiders WR Arrested For Possession Of…Viagra

Oakland Raiders WR Louis Murphy was arrested and charged with three misdemeanor charges, including one for possession of drugs without a prescription, according to the Gainesville Sun.

The drug was reportedly Viagra.

I allow you all a few moments to laugh.

The other two charges were for failure to obey a police officer and resisting arrest without violence.

According to the article, Murphy and his entourage were driving around Florida in an Escalade when the police asked them to pull over. The article doesn’t say why they police pulled Murphy over but it does mention that he was playing his music really loud.

I don’t like the Raiders but seriously, do police in Florida have nothing better to do then pull over people for playing loud music?

More after the jump.

Here is a bit from the Sun article:

"Harrison flipped on his lights and ordered Murphy and the passengers to stop. Harrison said Murphy refused to present identification and demanded to know why Harrison stopped him. Harrison said Murphy continued to refuse to show his ID and so Harrison attempted to place him in handcuffs, but, he said, Murphy refused to put his hands behind his back. It took three officers to place the 6-foot-2-inch, 180-pound NFL player into custody."

After the cops finally got the cuffs on Murphy, they searched his car and found the pills. According to the article, the bottle had no label on it but Murphy claimed he has ripped it off because he did not want his girlfriend to know he had a prescription for Viagra.

The police may have pulled over Murphy for a BS reason but if he was dumb enough to resist arrest then he deserves whatever he gets. When the cops pull you over you’ve got to play ball.

For Murphy’s sake, I hope this arrest wises him up.
