This Jordan Love arrest is just chock full of unnecessary stupid.
The report says Love couldn't or wouldn't spell his middle name. And yet, there it is, on the same report (download from The Red & Black). It's Lawrence. Yet the chief of police acts like it's some family secret.
The report says Love wouldn't give his date of birth, and it's not on the report at all. Does this young man not have a drivers license? At some point in the training process for UGA cops, do they not say "Ask people for their drivers licenses?"
Officer Kevin Thompson confiscated a lighter and at least one firework from Love and took them into evidence, but Love wasn't charged with shooting fireworks, just this obstruction thing. Now Love's family has hired not just one, but two attorneys (8th paragraph)?
And who the hell calls the cops because someone's lighting off fireworks at 9:40 p.m. on July 5?
Apparently, a guy named Stephen C. Rogers who, interestingly, spells his middle name "Christophe."
Update: The AJC reports that this case is moving forward. If I'm Love's attorneys I think exhibit A for me is one of the numerous newspaper articles where the chief of police basically said there was no case.
