Darnell Dockett, the Arizona Cardinals oft out-tweeted defensive lineman, apparently was pulled over by police this morning. It seems they wanted to search his car. They must not have known that cops never search Darnell Dockett's car without a warrant. Never.
Dockett, well-known for landing himself in trouble in Twitter-town (lest we forget the scandalous shower pics), "tweeted" 11 times during the traffic stop, the majority of which were 140-character vignettes about how he feels about warrant-less police searches.
We'll reiterate: Darnell Dockett never lets cops search his car without a warrant. Never.
