Ravens running back Ray Rice tweeted on Tuesday, “Just got pulled over for my tints smh (shaking my head) But gave the officer a autograph for his son and he let me go.” The tweet has since been redacted and suddenly Rice had some explaining to do about the incident.
According to an article about the incident in the Baltimore Sun, Rice explains that his tweet was worded poorly.
“I don’t want to make it seem like I was getting any [special] treatment by an officer,” Rice said Tuesday in the Ravens locker room. “He was doing his job.”
Rice was stopped in a parking lot on his way to buy the new “Call of Duty: Black Ops” video game. Rice said he wasn’t aware of the state law, and that he didn’t offer his autograph to the officer until after he’d been given a warning.
Do you think Rice received special treatment?
