Travis Henry Arrested, DEA Celebrates
By now, you’ve probably heard about Travis Henry’s cocaine bust — somebody’s got to feed those kids — but did you know the DEA celebrated their victory by posting a press release detailing their latest snare?
It’s true, it’s true.
Jeffrey D. Sweetin, Special Agent in Charge (SAC) of the Rocky Mountain Division of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), announced today the arrest of former Denver Bronco football player Travis Henry. Henry, along with James Mack, was arrested yesterday as a result of a multi-kilogram cocaine transaction that occurred in Centennial, CO. Both subjects are being held pending the filing of federal drug charges in U.S. District Court later today in Denver.
The mission of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) is to enforce the controlled substances laws and regulations of the United States and bring to the criminal and civil justice system of the United States, or any other competent jurisdiction, those organizations and principal members of organizations, involved in the growing, manufacture, or distribution of controlled substances appearing in or destined for illicit traffic in the United States; and to recommend and support non-enforcement programs aimed at reducing the availability of illicit controlled substances on the domestic and international markets.
They even have a contact number — Mike Turner, 303-705-7446 — if you’d like to know more. The funniest thing about the press release is the DEA was even social web savvy enough to include Technorati tags, just in case a blogger wants the government’s point of view.
Undoubtedly, today will be remembered as a bad one for Henry; I mean, it’s not everyday you get arrested for cocaine trafficking, have your lack of birth control education brought back to the forefront while the DEA releases a public relations fluff piece that essentially points at you and laughs. Maybe someone will sing the “Bad Day” song for him after he gets done getting processed.
That song always makes people feel better about themselves, much like “Don’t Worry, Be Happy.”
