Former Vol Allegedly Took Cash, Guns And Weed

A couple of hours ago I posted our latest take on the case of current Tennessee defensive back Brent Vinson.

According to a source, the Knoxville Police Department believes there is some connection between the shooting witnessed at 2am Wednesday by Vinson and the home invasion/robbery that took place about 36 hours earlier.

That home invasion resulted in former UT basketball player Ramar Smith being arrested and released on $15,000 bond.

The Knoxville News Sentinel is now reporting that Smith was charged with stealing $6000 in cash, guns and a half pound of marijuana during the armed invasion.

Question… what type of person has that in his house to steal?  Uh-huh.

Now, it’s believed that Vinson was hanging out a day and half later at the home of another rough-and-tumble fellow when two men entered that townhouse and shot the resident multiple times, leaving him in critical condition.

As we suggested earlier, all of this appears to be tied to drugs.

Smith’s pilfering of $6000, guns and ganja would seem to make that even more apparent.

And if the two situations are connected, even though Vinson was just a witness to the shooting, it’s VERY likely that he’ll be booted from the Vol football team. 

With a history of missteps, it’s unlikely his new coaches will be very forgiving of a young man who once again chose to put himself in harm’s way with some folks who — at the very least — are of “questionable” character.

You think Lane Kiffin might ask, “What were you doing there?”  I’m guessing he will. 

Then again, predicting Kiffin’s actions ain’t exactly an easy way to make a living.
