Travis Henry Predicts Heavy Snow This Winter

“DENVER — Former Denver Broncos running back Travis Henry has been arrested following an alleged cocaine deal, the Drug Enforcement Administration said Wednesday.

Henry and James Mack were arrested a day earlier after the two met to buy cocaine from a person who was cooperating with authorities, according to an arrest warrant affidavit.

Mack and Henry were in federal custody on suspicion of knowingly and intentionally conspiring to distribute and possess with intent to distribute cocaine. A preliminary hearing and detention hearing were scheduled for Monday…

The case has its roots in Montana, where a trooper and DEA agent stopped a car that was carrying six pounds of marijuana and about three kilograms of cocaine on Sept. 16, the affidavit said.

A passenger in the car, whose name was not disclosed in the affidavit, told authorities Mack and Henry had supplied him with the drugs, which he was supposed to deliver to customers in Billings. The man said he was supposed to be paid $5,000 for delivering the drugs and transporting about $63,600 in sales proceeds to Henry, according to the affidavit.

The affidavit indicated that separately, the passenger and another customer in Billings already owed Henry about $40,000 in drug proceeds. The passenger told authorities Henry had threatened him and his family over the debt.

The passenger agreed to cooperate with authorities and set up a drug deal Tuesday with Henry that led to the arrests of Mack and Henry, the affidavit said.

Broncos coach Mike Shanahan declined comment Wednesday, saying it wouldn’t be fair to say anything until he knew the facts of the case.

Henry was released from the Broncos on June 2, when Shanahan said his commitment was lacking.

Henry signed a five-year, $22.5 million contract with the Broncos before the 2007 season but was dogged during training camp by a sprained left knee.

Also there were revelations he had fathered nine children by nine women, a fact that came out in a child support case in Georgia…

Henry was slow to return to offseason workouts after a hamstring injury this summer, and Shanahan jettisoned him in June. About a week after his release, reports surfaced that Henry had again tested positive for marijuana, his third offense putting him in line for a one-year suspension from the NFL if he signed on with another team.

I’ve always wondered why the only people that get pulled over on the interstate anymore are drug dealers. It baffles the shit out of me. If I have 6 pounds of marijuana and 3 kilos of coke in the car, I’ve got my hands at 10 and 2 and I’m not driving over 65 mph. Plus, I got that car getting checked for lights, brakes, plates, mirrors, etc…before I hit the road to Montana. Secondly, Henry has 9 kids by 9 different women? Even Shawn Kemp was rumored to have only 7. I can see a few here and there but 9? It’s called a vasectomy. Get it taken care of . And finally, you just signed a 22.5 million dollar contract and you get cut for dogging it in practice? This guy is nuts.
