Breaking news-

Guess the guy got into a fight with someone at a sports bar. Followed the guy from the bar and a gun fight broke out. Harrison has a custom made Belgium gun that shoots .50 caliber bullets... WHAT THE F()CK!

Police went to see him the next day at the carwash he owns and he talked about the gun and said the gun had never left his house- police found the gun hidden in a bucket on the carwash premises. They did a balistics test and it was fired 7 times. Harrison has the gone registered, and has 25 guns registered. Word is his cousin may have come forward and given the police info.

I'm guessing you're being sarcastic. But Harrison and he got into a fist fight in the parking lot of the bar and from what it sounds like, Marvin then pursued the guy after the fight and that's when the shooting went down. The guy got grazed on the hand by one of the bullets...

So... this is a .50 caliber bullet. It's a custom made handgun. Who the hell needs this-
https://secure.democracyinaction.org/dia/organizationsORG/FSA/images/compare.jpg
The bullet on the left in this picture is a .223 round from an AR-15 assault rifle. The bullet in the middle is a .30-06 hunting round. And yet the .50 caliber, the sniper rifle bullet on the right, towers over both of them.

I thought they said that a bullet hit some glass and the glass hit someone in the shoulder. No new details at this point.

Lawsuit says Harrison, others put boys in 'choke hold'

HONOLULU -- Marvin Harrison of the Indianapolis Colts and two other men are accused in a lawsuit of attacking three boys seeking the wide receiver's autograph a day before the Pro Bowl.

The suit, made public Monday, seeks general, special and punitive damages to be determined at trial. It alleges Harrison "violently and physically attacked" the minors, including placing a "potentially deadly choke hold" on one of the boys.

Police interviewed Harrison while he was in Honolulu and forwarded their report to city prosecutors, who are considering whether to pursue charges. Harrison was not arrested and no one has been charged.

The boys have incurred medical expenses and severe emotional distress as a result of the assault, the suit said.

Johnnie Reshard Jr., Ernest Simon Jr., Eric Gilbert Jr. , whose ages are not listed in the suit, and their parents were visiting from California to attend the Pro Bowl when the boys were assaulted at the Hilton Hawaiian Village by the All-Pro player and two unidentified men, the suit said.

A Colts spokesman said the team would have no comment. Harrison's agent could not be reached immediately for comment.

The alleged altercation occurred Feb. 12, when the boys approached Harrison, who was talking on his cellular phone at the Waikiki resort. While the boys were waiting for Harrison to finish his calls, two men acting on the receiver's behalf said there would be no autographs or photos.

Without provocation, the suit says, the two men, later joined by Harrison, attacked the boys.

I just want to know -- why the gun was hidden in a bucket at the car wash owned by Marvin? He wasn't finished for the afternoon? And who was the girl?

Some insight that you may find interesting -- which shows no sequence:
No I really don't think it is over the top. A really quiet man. Most of his teammates don't know him well. Just a really different kind of person... I didn't know he owned a bar. I could never IMAGINE him owning a bar, actually. Bars are social places. But even less than owning a bar, I can't imagine him firing a gun. What I do know about him? Not what you picture in a gun fight outside a bar. The guy is a neat freak. There are military lockers that are not that perfect. Check out his locker if you ever get a chance... Wasn't rich growing -- I think his dad died young, but his mom was pretty strict. Went to Catholic school, and wore a tie every day... and from what I know it was somewhere in north Philly in a gentrified area. A lot more to it, than just those things. He is one of those guys who even people who are around him all the time don't even know. But from what I had gathered about him, the LAST thing I could have imagined was Marvin Harrison shooting someone or even if he wasn't the shooter, lying about the gun being at his home. So as I said, I hope none of that is true.
Interested in your experiences. He is NOT friendly with the press. But he is not an asshole either. He isn't friendly to anyone, actually. Always seems sort of in his own world. Has he actually ever been rude or nasty to you?

Right. He's often in his own world and that world, to outsiders, is pretty cold. And I wouldn't say he's been the greatest teammate over the last year or two while he's been hurt and Reggie Wayne has become Manning's favorite target (not that those situations are easy, but still). Not saying any of that makes gunplay plausible, but I'll just say I didn't see this news and think "Oh my God! Not Marvin Harrison!" Heck, I don't say that about any athlete who gets in (alleged) trouble anymore. We don't know them at all.

It's weird. The "Marvin sulking on the sidelines because he is not seeing the ball Marvin" is the one everyone equates to "you think you know the guy." And that isn't what I had in mind when I wrote ------. I actually once saw him do the nicest thing I have ever seen a pro athlete do for a little kid; and I have been around A LOT of football players when they were around kids and I have a great sense of what is fake and what is genuine from a lot of experience with this. One of those teammates--who was quick to say, "no one gets to know Marvin," kind of also told me "that is Marvin being Marvin." He can be really distant with a teammate one minute and then do something really kind and tender that few people will see. I just have had this picture in my head of a really complicated (have I used the word different?) guy. It certainly wasn't a guy getting into gunfights outside of bars--if that happened--which is why I reacted that way. Sorry if it was that over the top. I always thought in the right hands he would make the best profile ever written, but there is no way anyone can get close enough to him to get what you'd need for that profile. It's why every profile I have ever read of him has been insipid.

Whatever, ----. Sorry if it was over the top. I have spent a lot of time around football players. And I typed that specifically because, as I said, I can't picture that man, in particular, shooting someone. I picture him ironing his shirt so it is perfect. I picture him eating Tasteykakes. I picture him not getting close enough to anyone to shoot the person. And that is really it. I don't picture him in a bar in an argument. And that story really shocked the hell out of me--if there is any truth to him being involved. I don't get shocked by much. If you are that hell bent on equating what I wrote with ------ -- about Roger Clemens, knock yourself out. Sorry I was that over the top. But this *is* dramatic to a lot of people, though, in the way Roger Clemens coming out of retirement for the 40th time wasn't.

is this you grieving? lol. ....
wouldn't go so far to say he's an asshole, but he's not polite either. I've interviewed him and whether it's good question or bad, he doesn't suffer the media well at all and can be curt, which I interpret as impolite. Doesn't reflect on his guilt or innocence here, just what I've observed.

Sweet Jesus. What's going to be on the news tomorrow? Greg Maddux in a knife fight at a Wal Mart? What the f--k is wrong with these guys? Just walk away. You are a f--king millionaire.

Firing a weapon isn't automatically a crime or even a sin.

Based on what we know so far, if they prove he is the shooter than maybe they can get him for discharging a weapon in city limits, a misdemeanor. Actually, Pennsylvania state law says that any crime involving a gun is an automatic misdemeanor.

After that, the mitigating circumstances are endless. We don't know yet whether he had a good reason to fire the gun.

Bottom line, I have no idea if he did anything wrong, but he's far from the top of the list of athletes I would have thought would be in trouble with the law. Partly because of his age and partly because of his demeanor.

By the way, just read the excerpts Dylan posted. I don't know who was posting that, but I know in my dealings with Marvin that I'd would say that's pretty spot on. The guy can be kinda a dick / asshole, no doubt. He's always been adverse to really being hounded by media or put in the spotlight, and just doesn't have a very personable demeanor.

A few years back a writer was interested in doing a book on him and tried to setup a meeting with Marvin, but he wasn't interested in that in the least. He's also turned down a number of promo deals b/c he just doesn't care about that. I'd agree the guy is in his own world, but didn't expect to hear an incident like this involving him. The being a prick to fans incidents aren't very shocking, but this is clearly different.

Guess the guy has a different side and clearly his fuse doesn't putter out once lit!

Cue in Whitlock to weigh 3, 2, 1... Mr. "Run it. Worry about it later" ROFL

It's simply an automatic review for the DA's office to ensure they look over the case- and most likely charges are dropped 99% of the time if simply based on the fact that someone discharged a weapon. The ? is if they were committing a crime or unjustified in using excessive force.

I know it's been talked about in the thread, but in an overwhelming majority of states you can only use equal force to protect yourself and use deadly force when one is in clear and imminent danger of ones own life. Truth be told, there are plenty of times when this isn't the case and the DA refuses to prosecute. However, I don't like your chances in just about any jurisdiction if the cops roll up to find a dead perp on your lawn shot in the back as he was scurrying away with your car stereo.

Actually, it's "Allah"! :)

actually, there are various ways of spelling it, though your spelling is the most common form in the western language. Just like there are various forms of Hanukkah.

If you read the original texts of some of the accounts of Jesus' crucifixion story, when he says, "Father, why have you foresaken me," the word for father is Abba, which is another form for Allah. This form is generally regarded is the more intimate spelling of Allah, and would be like saying daddy as opposed to father. Much like in latin and greek, where many of the same words would have different meanings depending on their spelling. (i.e. love- which had at least 6 different versions depending on it's use) Same goes for various spellings of Yahweh.

Harrison is washed up anyway. And he's never made an impact in a playoff game in his career.

When he just layed down after catching a pass against the Donks
didn't get touched so he got up and scored a touchdown
-if that wasn't a playoff game -it sure was priceless

Is that Harrison's fault, or could it be that Peyton's mangina is on full display when the playoffs start?

Man these guys never cease to amaze you. When I heard about this on Friday I was like "WTF." It's kind of funny though listening to radio and ESPN today and I haven't heard alot about it. Pacman got more pub for his making it rain shooting. I did hear that they are calling him a suspect now. How the hell can somebody have the world in their hands and do stupid shit like this? They said he had already beat the shit out of the guy before the shooting. The only way I see him getting away with this is if nobody testifies against him. Yesterday on NFL Live they said the guy that he got in the fight with said that it wasn't Harrison that did the shooting. Even if he didn't pull the trigger why the hell would he have it with him the next day in a bucket at the car wash and then lie about it? Just stupid.

Looks like people may have jumped the gun :) on this one.

http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/8109900?MSNHPHMA

Police do not currently consider Marvin Harrison a suspect in a shooting that took place in Philadelphia last week, according to a report on the Indianapolis Star Web site.

"He's not a suspect at this point," police spokesperson Tanya Little told The Star Tuesday morning, declining further comment.

Multiple published reports last week indicated that Harrison was under investigation for the shooting.

Reports this week have said that bullets used in the shooting came from a gun owned by the Colts' star wide receiver.

Harrison, in an interview with police last week, admitted to being involved in a fistfight prior to the gunfire, but insisted he had no part in the shooting, the Philadelphia Daily News reported on its Web site.

The victim in the case has thus far refused to identify the gunman.

In an exclusive conversation with FOXSports.com's Jay Glazer last week, Harrison's agent, Tom Condon, denied a report implicating Harrison in the shooting.

"Marvin Harrison was not involved in any shooting," Condon told Glazer. "The report is erroneous."
