They are saying "Boooo"

Kevin "Boo" McLee was a stalwart linebacker for WVU for 4 years with over 200 tackles in his career. His senior season McLee had 79 tackles, three sacks, and an interception. As an undrafted free agent McLee signed with the St. Louis Rams after the NFL draft. Before arriving to training camp Kevin's father passed away and he was excused from reporting. It appears as though McLee never reported to camp and is currently not listed on any NFL rosters. However, Boo was able to get his name in the news with a traffic stop Thursday that included mutiple drug arrests.

Cleo Kevin "Boo" McLee, 24, of 193 Coolspring St. was charged before Magisterial District Judge Randy Abraham with possession with intent to deliver cocaine and marijuana, possession of cocaine and marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia as well as several traffic violations.

According to a criminal complaint filed by state police trooper Robert M. McGarvey, the incident began at 1:47 a.m. when police pulled McLee's vehicle over on Coolspring Street after McLee failed to signal a turn. Troopers observed the windows were covered with illegal tint and an invalid inspection sticker, the compliant stated.

McGarvey said after writing a written warning for the traffic violations, he asked McLee to step from the car so he could explain the warning to him.

McGarvey said after McLee got out of the car, he patted him down and found more than $500 in his front pants pocket, two bags of marijuana and a plastic bag containing cocaine in another pocket.

McLee has stated that he the drugs were for personal use only and has learned his lesson. The lesson, never get out of the car or let the police search it without probable cause. It can only lead to trouble. Boooooooo.

Not that I'm a criminal lawyer or anything, but the whole "step out of the car so i can explain this to you... oh, by the way, i need to pat you down because you're a big black dude" thing might not be a valid search.

I would guess that the cops would try and use the word "voluntary" in their report a few times.
