Pierce Pulled Over; TMZ Goes Overboard

Paul Pierce was pulled over in Vegas.  He was given TWO field sobriety tests… AND a breathalyzer.  He passed all three.  Then he decided to take a cab home afterwards.  Yet TMZ.com (and its idiot readers) decides there is still something fishy about it. 

So three DUI tests, not cited for erratic driving, decides to take a cab and leave his car…..what’s up with all that?

What’s up?  How about most people are let go after passing the first field sobriety test.  Most of the rest would be let go after the SECOND test.  Yet for some reason… the cops out there decided passing two tests isn’t enough.  Finally, after harassing him for a third test, they let him go.  If I were Pierce, I’d charter a chopper out of there… never mind a cab. 

The real question is… what’s up with the cops?  Were they racist?  Lakers fans?  Racist Lakers fans?  Who the hell knows?  All I know they did everything but pour a bottle of Jack all over him and trip him.

  1. Only a question… Does any of the 3 tests given capable of detecting anything besides alcohol? Maybe he was tripping on other drugs, and decided to take a cab as a reality check. Don’t think it had anything to do with his race or being a Celtics. Paul been pulled over and released countless times in Massachusetts … Please don’t come back with when and where; knowing damn well the Celtics covered up those incidents …

  2. Buddy, do you know what a field sobriety test is? If he was tripping on anything, he wouldn’t have passed either of the two field sobriety tests.

  3. Tim (FD) I don’t know what a field sobriety test is; that’s why I asked the question…Thank for your answer…I’m a bleed green Celtics fan and hope all the players return safely next season…

  4. How could the Celtics cover up those incidents? If Pierce was pulled over by a cop…and let go…then its on the cops for doing so. I don’t see how the team has any role in it. And if its happened countless times as you suggest (w/o any merit I might add) then I know someone would have eventually dropped a dime to the local media.

  5. For some reason I thought the NBA, police and media worked hand in hand…Sorry.

  6. That’s one of the dumbest things I’ve ever read. The media thrives on stories about athletes/stars who screw up.

  7. TMZ are always anti celtics, even in the finals they were always pulling negative stuff about the C’s

    because their stupid hollywood fanatics cant get enough of being sore loser asswipes

  8. Never, ever, ever attribute anything to TMZ – you’ll end up looking worse than the source. Although they did have a funny spot about Ray Allen lying about not being let into a club… and then goofing on their cameramen.

    Tim (FD), you’re absolutely wrong about “If he was tripping on anything, he wouldn’t have passed either of the two field sobriety tests.” Suspects can regularly pass SFST’s while under the influence of marijuana, meth, and cocaine. That’s why when a suspect is believed to have used any of the above, they take you in for a urinalysis or blood screening.

    The cops were doing their job – Las Vegas has a very liberal approach to alcohol. You can wander the strip with an open container. But as a result, they have very strict approach to DUI/DWI, because many jackballs think it’s just fine to drink and then drive. Give an inch…

    The fact that he left his car and took a cab is odd – after passing three tests, why not drive yourself to wherever you’re going? Most people would have done that.

    If I were a celebrity… I would never drive.

    Pierce wasn’t being harassed – only a few weeks ago, he was receiving a 4 hour massage. Now he has to take two SFST’s and a breathalizer screening… and he passed. Poor Pierce. Anyone want to start a “Pierce Needs A Hug” fund to help him recover?

    We can also use some of that money to send the staff members of TMZ to college for journalism degrees.

  9. Thanks DreinLA for expounding on the sobriety test issue…Wondering why the incident wasn’t mention in the Boston Herald…Usually if Paul takes a piss you can read when, where, color, odor and the hand used to hold his dick in the BH-Inside Track section…Maybe the Cs got some influence in the Boston media.

  10. Dre, he would not have passed both tests if he was driving how they claim he was driving and tripping on something. And even if he did, and they were still suspicious, they would have taken him for a urine test…. which they didn’t.

    So the argument that he was tripping on something is just plain ignorant.

  11. “Dre, he would not have passed both tests if he was driving how they claim he was driving and tripping on something. And even if he did…”

    That’s a contradiction, Tim. You said that he would not have passed the tests (which is untrue), but if he had… which is it?

    You said that he would not have passed the field sobriety tests if he was on a narcotic – that’s false. You can balance on one foot and recite the alphabet backwards while under the influence of crystal meth (probably with mind numbing efficiency).

    “and they were still suspicious, they would have taken him for a urine test…. which they didn’t.

    So the argument that he was tripping on something is just plain ignorant.”

    It’s not ignorant at all – it could be that the cops decided to let him go home too, because he’s a celebrity. You never know.

  12. “All I know they did everything but pour a bottle of Jack all over him and trip him.”
    lol – that’s hardly the case, though.

  13. At 10:29 I mentioned that Boston Herald didn’t report on the incident. An hour ago after reading my post on Redsarmy, BH reported on the story…One more reason why main stream media grows irrelevant everyday. Please don’t tell me BH’s staffs don’t read Redsarmy; I know they do…

  14. I don’t see the contradiction.

    And I seriously doubt that of the three drugs you named in your first post….. Paul Pierce would be on crystal meth. I don’t think he was on anything, but that would be the least likely of the three by far.

    I’m not going to keep arguing about this though…. go criticize guys like Posey or Carmelo who actually got DUI’s.

  15. My argument has nothing to do with Pierce or whether he was or was not using narcotics, Tim. You made an incorrect statement about the use and application of SFST’s/sobriety tests. You indicated that you cannot pass them while under the influence of narcotics… which is false.

    “Buddy, do you know what a field sobriety test is? If he was tripping on anything, he wouldn’t have passed either of the two field sobriety tests.”

  16. And I still believe that to be true. If he was driving erratically because he was under the influence of some drug ( which is what Rick Reily suggested ) he would not have passed the test twice. I understand that you can pass the test after smoking some dope maybe, but you can also drive perfectly well after doing so. The point is his driving was impaired (pulled over for driving erratically), so his ability to pass two sobriety tests would also have been impaired if he was tripping on something which is what Rick suggested.

    But he passed the tests, so he wasn’t impaired making it either a case of dwb or simply bad driving. That is all I’m saying and is all I will say.

  17. “I understand that you can pass the test after smoking some dope maybe, but you can also drive perfectly well after doing so.”

    “Buddy, do you know what a field sobriety test is? If he was tripping on anything, he wouldn’t have passed either of the two field sobriety tests.”

  18. Neither Marijuana, nor Crystal Meth are Narcotics. Neither one are in the Opiate family.

    You guys shouldn’t talk so strongly about “the law” and how you think things are, when by all accounts here you’d have failed High School Chemistry class.

  19. I’m confused…. I never mentioned narcotics, and Dre you just quoted me twice.

  20. Dre lumped Marijuana and Crystal Meth in as Narcotics.

    They aren’t.

  21. “Dre lumped Marijuana and Crystal Meth in as Narcotics.

    They aren’t.”

    Although your clarification (I did misspeak) is irrelevant to the point being made, thanks anyway. You’re right. And I did pass three years of chemistry, but we didn’t cover opiates. I feel cheated.

    Tim, I quoted you twice to show a contradiction. You said that if Pierce had been under the influence of a controlled substance, he wouldn’t have passed a sobriety test… later saying that he could pass a sobriety test while under the influence of a controlled substance.

  22. Maybe we have a different definition of tripping on a substance to the extent of erratic driving, as opposed to simply being under the influence of marijauna. I think there is a difference, and that is where I was trying to make my point. But hey, I’m glad to say I am no expert on the subject.
