    Eagles players caught in NJ

    I thought you might get a kick out of this news article I just read.
    I can't believe the last paragraph. What BS, they can't even own up to what they did.

    GLASSBORO, N.J. -- Philadelphia Eagles Donovan McNabb and Jeremiah Trotter, two of many able-bodied motorists accused of parking their luxury autos in handicapped spots, failed to show for their hearing at Glassboro Municipal Court.

    Glassboro Municipal Judge Charles J. Springman Jr. cited each player for failing to appear at Wednesday night's hearing. A courts administrator told The Philadelphia Inquirer that if the athletes, or their attorneys, failed to attend to-be-rescheduled hearings, contempt charges could result.
    The men are among an estimated 300 people in this Gloucester County community who have received police complaints filed by Maryann Cottrell, a crusader against those who illicitly park in spots reserved for the physically handicapped. The 53-year-old Cottrell, who cares for an adult child with autism, last fall photographed the athletes' vehicles parked in handicapped spots outside the borough's Landmark Americana sports bar.

    McNabb's doctor wrote to the municipal court saying his client was hospitalized on the date of the alleged infraction. The bar's owner also wrote, saying nearby construction forced Trotter to use the handicapped spots.

    Such a shame that poor Jeremiah Trotter was FORCED to use the handicapped spot. Construction can be so brutal.

    for those of us ''no profile'' ppl., we would have had a bench warrant for our arrest issued, but these jerks get a rescheduled hearing. notice the next sentence, charges could result... kinda' makes you wonder if her efforts are going to be prosecuted....?
