Popeye Jones — not great at resisting arrest

A rough night for Popeye

Too bad former Raptor big man Popeye Jones isn’t as good at resisting arrest as he was at hitting the boards. The former rebounding machine was pulled over for DUI in Texas late Sunday and apparently bashed his own face into the pavement while trying to shake the cops, which they decided was punishment enough. They dropped the resisting charge, though Jones was still slapped for driving drunk. Fair, I’d say.

Jones, who played for the Raps for two seasons in the late-nineties and is widely accepted as having the biggest ears of anyone to ever play the game, is currently serving as an assistant coach with the Dallas Mavericks.
