That nutty ol’ Alonzo Spellman was at it again on Tuesday. The former Bear/Cowboy/Lion found himself in the pokey after playing a game of vehicular tag with the po-pos in Tulsa, OK. Oh, what will he do next?
Spellman was arrested on complaints of traffic violations and resisting arrest and booked into the Tulsa County Jail, police spokesman Leland Ashley said.
The chase began at 12:23 p.m. after officers responded to a disturbance at a convenience store in midtown Tulsa, Ashley said. When officers arrived, Spellman got into a green Chrysler Pacifica and drove away, Ashley said.
“He took us on a little pursuit through the city,” Ashley said. “We had to use stop sticks that took out three of his tires.”
After the vehicle stopped, Spellman refused to get out of the car for about 20 minutes until officers fired “pepper bullets” through the windows.
Too bad the crew of Delta Flight 2038 didn’t have “pepper bullets” back when Spellman went post 9/11 bat crap crazy at 30,000 feet above sea level.
According to court documents, Spellman verbally abused a flight attendant, essentially threatening to kill her for interfering. When a young mother of two asked him to stop using profanity, Spellman turned on her. He called Karen Weaver, among other things, a whore and told her to silence her crying baby.
When the plane landed and he was approached by Captain Robert Freund, Spellman said, “I can feel the adrenaline rushing through my hands. I’m about to rip your throat out.”
If police came aboard, Spellman said, “They are going to have to carry me off in a body bag.
