The infamously non-playing Latrell Sprewell is being checked out by Milwaukee police for allegedly choking a woman during a sexual encounter. Any casual sports fan will be able to note that this isn’t the first time the poor lad has fallen victim to the desire to cut off someone’s air supply.
(Although this incident brings up the question – was “The Carlesimo Event” some kind of turn-on for Spree? Is he attracted to older, slightly leprechaunish white men of authority?)
Our favorite account of this is from the Associated Press, which notes that the police “quizzed” Spree on the events of the fun-filled evening in question. Crack researcher and insider that we are, we managed to get the quiz faxed over to us.
(Raise your hand if this morning was the first time you noticed there’s only one ‘e’ in the first part of Sprewell.)
