I’m Lovin’ It… because he didn’t kill anyone — Former u$c Football player T.J. McDonald is arrested for Driving Under the Influence, of something other than alcohol
How long has it been since a trojan has made the Police Blotter? Not that long, actually. Not exactly a “drought.” It was just a few weeks ago that Bryce Dixon got sentenced to 6 years in prison for Carjacking and Assault with a Deadly Weapon, and now, T.J. McDonald gets into the act, with a DUI — an old classic, with a twist.
It wasn’t alcohol that caused T.J. to lose control of his vehicle and allegedly crash into a parked car. According to reports, it wasn’t the wacky weed either. It must have been some other drug, like a prescription medication. So this case may be just beginning.
T.J. is a second-generation trojan, following in the clown-shoe steps of his father Tim McDonald. So deciding this week to drive a car while intoxicated was not his first bad decision, but it may be the one with the most impactful ramifications. And I DO mean RAM-ifications. McDonald is a current member of the LOS ANGELES Rams, so if he is taking, or overdosing, some kind of banned substance or performance-enhancer, he could be facing a suspension from the team, or from the NFL.
The team has so far refused to comment on the situation. Of course, the Rams are coached by another ex-trojan, Jeff Fisher. Fisher has never won a Championship, and is probably on the hot seat, as a hungry Los Angeles fan base will demand a team that’s better than what the Rams have shown lately for Fisher in St. Louis. So… Fisher will probably be super-lenient to his fellow former trojan, in order to get him back on the field asap. It may be up to the League to actually take action and serve justice, by punishing the trojan perp themselves.
Let’s just be happy that McDonald’s mistake only damaged a parked car, and that there were no little kids inside or near the car, to be injured or killed by his stupidity and negligence. This time. If he has even the slightest (McNugget of) Wisdom, he will take an Uber next time he’s wasted on Special Sauce, or whatever substance he may be abusing. Otherwise, Mayor McCheese may have to have McDonald thrown into a cell with the Hamburglar. Maybe THAT will wipe the Evil Grimace off his trojan face.
