Chris Cooley Pulled Over During Radio Interview (w/Audio)
Video may have killed the radio star, but it certainly hasn’t killed the radio interview. How else would we get to hear live audio of Redskins’ tight end Chris Cooley being pulled over by cops only a few minutes from his house?
Tuesday morning, Cooley made an appearance on 106.7 The Fan’s Sports Junkies, but just prior to the beginning of his interview, he was greeted with the sight of a police car’s flashing cherries in his rearview mirror. At that point, he gives the hosts and listeners a heads up, saying “Hold on guys, I’m getting pulled over, so hang on,” before having a few words with the officer. Cooley then explained what had happened (apparently he drifted out of his lane while going around a corner), before the cop returns to tell him the good news; he was letting him off without a ticket.
Luckily, the entire incident was recorded live on-air. Check it out.
