Last night Orioles Gold Glove outfielder, Adam Jones reported via Twitter, that he had been detained in Canada. In the tweet Adam wrote:
By the looks of this message, Adam seems pissed! It looks that as if Adam and someone else had not been traveling with the team on their trip to play the Toronto Blue Jays tonight. Personally, I love the public out-lashes on Twitter from Jones. Not only has he bashed the Organization for not helping him out in this matter but he also made fun of Garret Atkins earlier this year.
Adam isn’t the only “celebrity” to find themselves in a little immigration trouble as of late. My pick on the celebrity death pool for 2010, Lindsay Lohan has been having problems getting back into the country because of a “lost” passport while attending the Cannes film festival. Typically a lost passport wouldn’t matter but when you haven’t followed through with your probation for 2 DUI’s, 2 counts of cocaine possession, transporting a narcotic into a custodial facility, driving on a suspended license, drinking underage and leaving the scene of an accident all in JULY OF 2007, you’d probably flip out about a lost passport too.
Personally, I think this is part of the new “Stay Out of the United States You Drunk Skank” campaign signed by President Barack Obama last week.
I don’t think Adam Jones has nearly the rap sheet Lindsay Lohan does and shouldn’t have been detained. Hopefully this was all just a misunderstanding but how funny if he was detained because the boarder patrol confused him with this other guy.
