Oakland Raiders wide receiver was arrested in Florida on Sunday for possessing Viagra without a prescription and resisting arrest.
Here's more on it, from The Gainesville Sun:
Gainesville Police Officer Thomas Harrison said he spotted Murphy's Cadillac Escalade at 100 SW First St., with the stereo playing loudly. Harrison said he told Murphy, 23, to pull over, but then Murphy continued driving to a city parking lot, where he and his passengers got out of the SUV and walked away.Man, these are some rough times. We have a horrible economy, earthquakes, tsunamis, expensive burrito prices at Taco Bell, and now we have guys getting arrested for Viagra possession. Ridiculous.
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.
Harrison said Murphy consented to a search of his vehicle, where officers found a “non-labeled prescription bottle containing 11 individual pills later identified as Viagra.” Murphy could not provide a prescription for it and allegedly told the officer that he had peeled the label off of the bottle “because he did not want his girlfriend to know he had a prescription for it.”
I mean, arresting a dude for carrying around some harmless pills to aid his dick problem? Come on.
Look coppers, the dude's just 23 and an NFL player. Of course he's going to either avoid a prescription or take the prescription label off. Most guys popping those blue pills are old farts that are going to keep their mouths shut about it anyway. What do you think a young guy that's also a popular NFL player is going to do?
If his girlfriend(especially if they ended up breaking up eventually) or somebody around the NFL found out that he can't naturally pop a boner, that information could spread like wildfire. That would've been highly embarrassing for Murphy.
Well, now the cops have managed to embarrass the hell out of Murphy, while arresting him at the same time for something that I think most guys in his situation would've done. What an incredibly lame double whammy.
I totally get the cops bringing Murphy into the station. They originally had no idea what the pills were, and he was resisting arrest, which probably made the cops think he had painkillers or something. But once they found out it was Viagra, keep that shit quiet. It's man code, which is bigger than the law.
