Generally, although it can vary based on local laws, 1 oz for pot is the limit before you're dealing with intent to distribute. But 2.5 oz really isn't that much in the grand scheme of things, I would have no doubt that it was for "personal use".

Another embarassing incident from this team. I think the league needs to step in and discipline the Bears and Bengals. They obviously can't control their players.

Huh?


This is Tank's third incident with the police. Not a good thing when the Bears have already lost Tommie Harris.

This is what happens when parents name their kids after army vehicles.

Gurnee is a Northern suburb near the Wisconsin border famous for the Great America park. Tank has 2 young kids. He's a complete buffoon to have this artillery at his home. Their is no excuse unless he thought the rich white kids would leave the amusement park to perhaps cause him bodily harm. :-?

Tank is my nominee for the David Tyrell award for '06!

Some interesting twists to this story now. Tank gets out on $1000 bail (which comes out to $100, lol) and now he might lose his kids to Child Services for leaving loaded handguns around the house with no security on them at all.

And apparently, it wasn't just SWAT there "just in case" but they went in full blown, with flash bangs, battering ram, and armored car. Dunno exactly the reason why they went in that way in the first place, but I guess there were reports by neighbors about his pitbulls and possible gun firing going on before which instigated the investigation sometime in Nov.


And I don't think Tank was the name given to him by his parents, lol. His real name is Terry. But it is funny how these athletes think they still need guns for protection when they live in a place like Gurnee, where the main attraction is a Six Flags amusement park and a giant outlet mall. Because you know how dangerous 10 year olds hyped up on cotton candy and bored housewives shoppping for cutlery can be, LOL.

Right here
Lake County authorities charged Johnson, 25, with six misdemeanor counts of unlawful possession of a weapon without a Firearm Owner's Identification card. The weapons seized during the raid included a .44 magnum Smith&Wesson revolver, a .50 caliber Desert Eagle handgun, a .45 caliber handgun, a .308 caliber Winchester rifle and two assault-style rifles—a Colt AR-15 and a .223 caliber.

Of course he has a DE, lol.

Bad news though, Lovie has already decided to deactivate Tank for Sunday's game. So no Tommie and no Tank... stupid Tank.
