Bishop Eddie Long Accuser Arrested on Drug Possession Charges

Jamal Parris, one of the four men who accused Bishop Eddie Long of sexual coercion, was arrested on suspicion of being a drug dealer.  The arrest took place in Florida, when he was pulled over in a white 2011 BMW in Miami Beach with no tags.   Sgt Seth Dubinsky pulled Parris over and said that he smelled marijuana when he approached him.

When the officer searched the car, he found 181 grams of marijuana.  He also said that he found 50 clear plastic bags and a hand gun.   Additionally, Parris had $1,250 in cash.

Dubinsky claims that the items in Parris’ possession were “indicative of a drug dealer.”  On that suspicion, Parris was sent to jail and charged on two felonies:  possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute and possession of a firearm while committing a felony.   He was also hit with a misdemeanor of driving with no registration.

Parris was arrested with another passenger, Jeremy Jouvanni Gordon, a 20-year old man.  Gordon was arrested on a drug paraphernalia charge as well.

“He kept telling me he bought that BMW with the settlement money,” Dubinsky said. Parris also told the cop he’d been accepted to Miami-Dade College. “He said, ‘you guys are getting the wrong impression of me.'”

    This was a racial profiling stop, but this young punk should have know better as a black man to be driving a brand new expensive car, no tags and then he’s stupid enough to have weed and an unregistered hand gun in this car…This does not make any sense, this boy won a nice lawsuit settlement and we can now see why this child is out here doing these ridiculous things, he lacks proper parental supervision…These four boys need to be in counseling for this alleged sex abuse, and a financial planner is also needed to help these boys manage their money…There has been many people who won mega lotteries, who woke up broke within five year of winning that money…Driving an expensive car with drugs, and carrying a firearm are bad combinations for any black male driving in any state of this dis-union, even if he’s in a Ford Pinto…

    He certainly used his sheepish brain capacity as former member of the flock…. Always understand that you are always being watched, and the system will find a way to set you up to be made a fool of if you offer up the opportunity like free plate of veal at Da Silvano. The sheep herder reached out and touched him again because they potentially new what his habits were and are. When you attack someone like an eddie long, never underestimate his friends that are always watching and tracking movements, they definitely did not get the wrong impression of him. They found a fool and his money and decided to relieve him of some of it.
