NBA's Lonny Baxter arrested for shots near White House

I'm guessing these weren't free throws.

Charlotte Bobcats basketball player Lonny Baxter was arrested early on Wednesday after a witness reported gunfire near the White House, a Secret Service spokesman said.

You know how much I make a year? About 30,000$. You know how much a starter house costs in my state? About 400,000$. I pay 200$ a month in car insurance plus I'm still paying about 300$ a month for the fucking car. Gas is 3.00$ a gallon. If anyone should be taking shots at the fucking White House it should be someone other than a man who makes millions to put a ball in a hoop.

A witness flagged down a Secret Service officer about 2:30 a.m. (0630 GMT) and reported shots fired about five blocks from the White House.

Ah, capital city. Where our government ignores the violence and poverty right outside the window.

The officer stopped Baxter's SUV and saw "in plain view a number of spent shell cartridges," said Zahren.

So, you DON'T have to be a brain surgeon to play basketball.
