Just one day after his brother tried to have an old lawsuit against him dismissed, it appears our friend Ron Mexico is in considerable trouble again. Michael Vick appears to have been stashing his weed in a water bottle and trying to sneak it past the whiz-kids at airport security.
Vick reluctantly surrendered a water bottle to security at Miami International Airport that contained a residue "closely associated with marijuana." The quarterback entered a concourse Wednesday morning at the airport with the 20-ounce bottle. He eventually handed it over and boarded his flight to Atlanta. But his initial reluctance to turn over the bottle aroused suspicion among airport security screeners, a police report said.
The bottle was found to have a hidden compartment that contained "a small amount of dark particulate and a pungent aroma closely associated with marijuana,'' the report said.
A "dark particulate." What grand memories that brings up ... the ones we can remember, anyway. So far, no charges have been filed against Mexico, and the Falcons say they're reserving comment until more is known. Silly Vick: Everybody knows you can't bring water bottles on the plane. The weed, man, it was just a red herring.
