Cardinals dismiss felon

Louisville Cardinals Willie Williams was dismissed from the team after being arrested last week on charges for possession of marijuana, felony tampering with physical evidence and driving without a license. Louisville police arrested the 6-3, 230-pound Williams after he was stopped for driving a car with the music playing too loudly. A detective searched the car and found Williams trying to hide a small amount of marijuana, Russell said. "He basically had the marijuana in his mouth," said Russell, who would not release the identities of the others in the car because they were not arrested. Several other schools passed on Williams, but after attending West Los Angeles Community College, the Cardinals took a chance on him. The high school All-American gained infamy for his long criminal record as a teenager that included 11 arrests, which derailed his intention of playing football at Miami.

This kid has a rap-sheet that would make even Pacman blush. But it is just as well he ruined his NFL career before it even started. Now it will put him a year ahead in his new career path - to become the party favor in cell block F.
