At the very least, before the former Texas Tech/Carter High wideout does listen to his cousin David Wells and hold out for the entire 2009 season and re-enter the draft, he should maybe read this lengthy profile written by the Dallas Observer‘s Tom Korosec back in 2002. It is eyebrow-raising, to say the least. Deadspin’s Barry Petchesky breaks it down like a fraction:
A partial list of curious episodes before and during Wells’s time as head of David’s Bail Bonds:
-Arrested for stealing boxing gloves from the Dallas Police Athletic League.
-Banned for life by USA Boxing over allegations of misuse of funds.
-Served as the omnipresent bodyguard shoving reporters out of the way for Michael Irvin after his arrest for possession.
-Indicted for serving as a private investigator with a license that had lapsed four years earlier, but exonerated after a dubious receipt appeared showing he had renewed it.
-Let off the hook for $50,000 when one of his clients skipped town, after a dubious document appeared showing he had warned the county.
-Started a security company with a court bailiff, which is illegal due to conflict-of-interest rules.
