|In happier days|
Ten years later, things have not gone so well, and Jermaine was arrested the other night by Baltimore County Police. I don't know what he does for a living now. The police were called because a car registered to him was driving erratically through his neighborhood, almost having head-on collisions, and running over a sign at the Boring Volunteer Fire Company.
Yes, we have the town of Boring, MD, in our county. Save your jokes; they've heard them all before!
For those who say it's his life, leave him alone, I say yes. If he wants to stay in his house and drink all day, that's fine. But he should not be driving a car in that condition. (His revoked license means he should not be driving a car in any condition, as a matter of fact.) That sign that he smashed down at the fire house might just as easily have been a child or other pedestrian.
What I'm saying his, an entire community once loved this guy for what he could do with a football in his hands. Now, we need to help him get the care he needs and get his life back on track. His behavior is showing us that he is hollering out for help. Someone - family, Ravens official, teammate - is going to have to realize that he's put the situation in their hands now.
