"Inflatable Ben can stop my driving to the hoop, but he can't stop my driving while intoxicated!"

And the rough lockout offseason continues.

Ben Wallace has been arrested and faces felony charges. He was pulled over at 3am (because, like momma always said, nothing good ever happens after midnight) for erratic driving. He failed a field sobriety test and later a breathalyzer test... and police also discovered an unloaded pistol in his Escalade. Oops! For those scoring at home, that's a misdemeanor drunken driving charge, and a five year felony charge for carrying a concealed weapon.

This is terrible news, but I'm left with just one thought: Will he be using Inflatable Defender Ben Wallace as his representation in court? I can't wait for him to pop open the valve to deflate it, then say "the defense rests, Your Honor."

Why is he carrying an unloaded gun, did he plan on throwing it at someone?

Ben's defense has been resting for a few years now.

I don't understand this. Is your Constitution no longer valid?

PS. I'm not from US.

Anon -- Gun possession in the USA is very complex. There are both federal laws AND state laws. Here's a Wiki article about it.

I had the site where you could buy the inflatable Ben Wallace in my Bookmarks. Courtesy of this site of course.
