Get a load of this genius here! Trying to smuggle some drugs into the prison via a football! This grand and glorious moment took place in Lansing,Michigan at G. Robert Cotton Correctional Facility. It appeared a young man tried to throw a football filled with contraband, 3 cell phones, and  tobacco, over the main gate into the main yard. A prison guard saw the entire ordeal. People are getting smarter and smarter I tell you. (IAMBRIANJAMES.COM

The Detroit Free Press has more:

“After observing the passenger exit the vehicle and throw the football, our officer ran towards the vehicle and drew his Taser and told the driver to stop, which he did,” said Russ Marlan, a spokesman for the Michigan Department of Corrections.

Christen Deon-Sterling Moore, 32, is charged with crimes related to delivery of heroin and marijuana and smuggling cell phones to prisoners, Jackson County Prosecutor Jerry Jarzynka said today. Each is a five-year felony. A conference will be held Friday on how to proceed with the case. Moore has been arraigned but it was not clear today whether he is free on bond.
