Pro Football Talk – The Daily Wildcat reports that Carey was removed from last Thursday’s Arizona basketball game against UCLA after a “verbal confrontation” with both event staff and police. According to a police report on the incident, Carey and his cousin, Hakeem Adams-Johnson, were asked to move from their seats multiple times because they didn’t have tickets.
That’s when Carey allegedly pulled the “Do you know who I am?” card.
When the officer asked both of them for their tickets, Carey responded, “Get the f— out of my face.” He then asked, ‘Do you know who I am? I’m an All-American.”
Police Officer: Sir, can I please see your tickets?
Johnny All-American: Get the fuck out of my face. Do you know who I am? I’m an All-American.
Police Officer: All-American in what exactly?
Johnny All-American: Football you fucking pig.
Police Officer: Well if you play football and were an All-American, you certainly don’t go to Arizona so I am going to have to ask you to leave.
Johnny All-American: Your straight tripping fool, I led an 8 – 5 Arizona squad to a New Mexico Bowl Championship. It was arguably one of the most exciting New Mexico Bowls in the history of New Mexico Bowls.
Police Officer: (into walkie talkie) I am going to need some back up we have a man who is obviously high on drugs claiming to have played in a New Mexico Bowl for an Arizona football team. Neither of those things are real.
There is no way this conversation went any other way because I am pretty sure even the students don’t know they have a football team at Arizona. Basketball is king there, and his reign will last forever as long as $ean Miller is there. You have to love this power move by the Arizona running back though, goes straight into “do you know who I am?” Too bad playing football at Arizona is about as cool as being an extra in 3rd season of a One Tree Hill episode.
PS: Something about this guy makes me hope he tears his ACL.
