Is Harrison a Thug?

I read this article today and it definitely made our new DT, Marcus Harrison , look like a changed man.  It seems like he is a religious guy who hit a low in his life.  It is hard to say if it is just a writer with a bias or real journalism, but the article does share more details of the event and Harrison's perspective.

According to a Fayetteville police report, Harrison stopped at a gas station and bought drugs from a man he had never met, he later admitted.

When police pulled over Harrison a few minutes later for speeding, they smelled marijuana smoke as he rolled down the window of his gray Chevy Caprice.

An officer asked Harrison to step out of the vehicle, and a search of the car revealed two cigars under the seat containing a total of two grams of marijuana. When an officer asked Harrison if he had anything else illegal on him, he volunteered that he had a blue pill wrapped in a plastic bag in the right cargo pocket of his pants.

The pill was Ecstasy, a synthetic drug popular on the college party scene.

"Once I saw the lights on behind me, it wasn't like I was going to lie to police or anyone," Harrison recalled. "I knew I had made a mistake, so I told them up front where [the drugs] were."

When asked is he knew about Tank Johnson's history with the Bears:

"I know all about Tank and I respect him as a player, I respect him as a person, but I'm not Tank Johnson," Harrison said. "The one thing Chicago won't have to worry about is me getting into trouble. That was a one-time thing.

You have to give the guy credit for being honest. The article also mentioned his religious and military family background.
