Man Who Injured a Cop Just Bought a Bunch of Weapons

Ok, so the title is a bit misleading.  Those fans of Randy Moss will remember this incident, as quoted from wikipedia:

On September 24, 2002 in downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota, Moss was driving and was preparing to make an illegal turn. A traffic control officer, noticing what he was about to do, stood in front of his car, ordering him to stop. Eyewitness accounts of the event differ at this point, but Moss did not comply with the officer’s order, and she was bumped by his vehicle and fell to the ground. Moss was arrested, and a search of his vehicle revealed a small amount of marijuana.[23] Initially charged with felony Suspicion of Assault with a Deadly Weapon and a misdemeanor marijuana possession, Moss pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor traffic violation and was ordered to pay a $1,200 fine and perform 40 hours of community service.[24]

Well, meter maids, watch out, because The Freak just bought himself an arsenal. ESPN.com reports:

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — All-Pro New England Patriots receiver Randy Moss is now a NASCAR team owner, announcing Thursday he’s purchased 50 percent of a Craftsman Truck Series team.

Randy Moss Motorsports will make its debut on July 19 at Kentucky Speedway with Willie Allen driving the No. 81 Chevrolet. The number was changed from 46 to reflect Moss’ NFL jersey number.

Moss has been eyeing entering NASCAR for some time, but said he decided to buy half of Morgan-Dollar Motorsports rather than build a team from the ground up. Moss wants the team to eventually move up to the premier Sprint Cup Series.

Up until this point, I thought NASCAR drivers only drove while swiggin’ moonshine, so it’ll be interested to see how a team of high drivers does. My guess: I wouldn’t recommend being an officer in the infield circle.
