As we have watched the UNC Scandal begin with some tweets that Marvin Austin thought were harmless and saw it morph into rogue academic problems, rogue agents and runners, rogue this, and rogue that, one thing that wasn’t really discussed much was how much did this cost (and was any tax payer money used). Well, […]
Life is all about making connections with others, don’t you think?Â It’s what makes life worth living.
A big shout out to the folks at RedWolfSolutions.com for making some connections here.
First off….a little light-hearted entertainment….
Please do take note of the the license plate on the rear of the vehicle at the 00:47 mark of this video (Don’t worry…you can pause it if you need to).
Now, connections that will warm your heart….
A certain UNC Dental School grad who shall remain nameless (Spencer B. Howard, DDS), who is co-founder of Iceberg, the company now infamous for both its mouthguards and its unfailing generosity to student athletes everywhere…everywhere in Chapel Hill that is…also happens to be the gentleman who incorporated Kairobi Exotic Rentals and Transport Inc., located in…Durham, NC.
Kairobi Exotic Rentals (Or KER for short…remember that) has an employee named “H. Patrick Thomas”.Â Not just an employee, but listed on official documents as “Principal”.Â See….
Could the “H” possibly stand for “Haydn”?Â If so, the plot certainly thickens…don’t it?
But wait, we’re just getting warmed up….
It seems that most, if not all, of Kairobi Exotic Rentals’ vehicles have NC plate numbers beginning with “KER”, and followed by a number.Â Which makes this little nugget at least interesting, if not “incriminating”….
We wonder how many other Parking-gate tickets that have thus far been largely ignored cite vehicles with plates beginning with “KER”?
So, is Fats a rogue employee lending out cars willy-nilly to his friends without the company’s knowledge or authorization?Â Or is it more likely that Fats is a go-between?Â Considering that the gentleman listed on the articles of incorporation for Kairobi Exotic Rentals is a UNC Dental School grad, who also happens to be a co-founder of Iceberg….
Let’s just say we don’t believe in coincidences like this, shall we?
For a more complete look at these connections, please go here and have a look.
And once again, big shout out to RedWolfSolutions…great work!!!
And for just a little more FRIDAY afternoon entertainment (it’s Friday, so it’s over now…right?), it has now come to light that….well, just read this….
A detailed police report into the traffic stop and arrest of UNC basketball star P.J. Hairston says that he switched places with a passenger to try to avoid a citation of driving without a license, admitted to being a â€œrecreationalâ€ marijuana user and had been given the rental car that he was driving to go to Atlanta and see friends.
The new details raise more questions about Hairstonâ€™s standing with the basketball program, which is currently reviewing the situation. The details also counter claims by the Durham man who had rented the car, Haydn â€œFatsâ€ Thomas, who had told reporters he did not give the 2013 GMC Yukon to Hairston but to another man in the car.
Hairston told police he had been driving the car, but when he saw the checkpoint he realized he could not find his drivers license. He woke up Miykael Faulcon, a friend who was in the passenger seat. Faulcon, 20, of Durham, is a basketball player for Elizabeth City State University.
â€œMr. Hairston then stated that while he was stopped, he switched spots with Mr. Faulcon,â€ the report said. â€œMr. Hairston then stated that they then drove up to the license check point.â€
Hairston denied using marijuana that day, and at first told police he does not smoke marijuana. Navarre then asked when was the last time Hairston smoked marijuana, and Hairston â€œstated it was about two weeks ago.â€
â€œMr. Hairston stated that he does not smoke marijuana on a regular basis, however, he is a recreational smoker,â€ the report said. â€œMr. Hairston stated that he does not smoke marijuana to get high, but he will take a â€˜hitâ€™ or two occasionally.â€
Hairston said he had received the vehicle two hours before the traffic stop from a man he identified as â€œFatts.â€
â€œMr. Hairston stated that â€˜Fattsâ€™ rented the vehicle for Mr. Hairston because he was planning on traveling to Atlanta this weekend to see some friends,â€ the report said.
Just a couple of questions here…
1) Does not smoke marijuana to get high?????Â Seriously?Â Is there some other reason to pay thru the nose to smoke something, of which the intended purpose as we understand it is to get “high”?
2) Switched spots while stopped, then drove to the checkpoint.Â So, when exactly did the firearm get tossed?
Pop the popcorn and of course…stay tuned.
