After spending 45 days in the county lockup, what’s the first thing you would do on your first day out of the clink? If you’re Xavier Hicks, you get immediately pulled over by the police.
EVERY DAY SHOULD BE SATURDAY shares the arresting news of Hicks, a Washington State safety who had just finished his month-and-a-half sentence for credit card theft - and for putting rubbing alcohol in his roommate’s contact lenses.
But Xavier’s freedom was almost very short-lived.
From the SEATTLE TIMES (via the AP):
Hicks, 21, was released from the Whitman County Jail on Wednesday morning after serving a 45-day sentence and drove toward Pullman.
But he did not have a valid driver’s license, so jail personnel contacted Pullman police. Police stopped Hicks when he entered town and issued a misdemeanor ticket.
Xavier is getting to know the local legal system pretty well. Maybe he should switch his major to pre-law.
And maybe Hicks is trying to reach the lofty goal set by former Cougar recruit Calvin Schmitdke, who had his scholarship taken away after receiving 11 citations in just 18 months.
With all this extracurricular activity outside the classroom & outside the law, it looks like the Cincinnati Bengals may have a ready-made pipeline to the Palouse.
