Vulgar display of douchery ends in epic failure.
Let's start with the good news and move on to the juicier stuff: crashing his Dodge Challenger into a ditch in Ohio last Friday, Cleveland Browns cornerback Justin Gilbert thankfully walked away unharmed. Did he deserve to? Let's see. Apparently, Gilbert somehow got into an altercation with a Mustang driver somewhere along Interstate 71. According to local News Net 5, "The crash happened when one car cut off the other. The drivers exchanged middle fingers and Gilbert reportedly threw tobacco juice on the other car."
Tobacco juice, for the uninitiated, refers to the cup filled with chewing tobacco that is spit out of someone's mouth. Apparently, this regurgitated brown goo can also double as an effective road rage weapon in times of need. Following this lovely display of road courtesy, Gilbert lost control of his car, swerved off the highway and ended up in a ditch. His car suffered some damage and soon the Ohio State Highway Patrol arrived at the scene. Gilbert was given a citation for failure to "maintain reasonable control of his vehicle", while the other driver was cited for disorderly conduct.
