Troubled Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon got pinched by Johnny Law early Saturday morning in Raleigh, NC on DWI charges. The arrest comes as Gordon awaits an appeal hearing with the NFL regarding his one-year suspension for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. Drugs, alcohol, a person’s crumbling professional and personal life … sounds like the perfect mix for the snarky folks on Twitter. Here are some of the schadenfreude-fueled responses from the Twitterverse.
I’m confirming the news: Josh Gordon has arresting good looks. He extends Drives With Intimidation (DWI) on the football field.
