Orioles’ outfielder Adam Jones was being interviewed via telephone on XM Radio’s MLB Home Plate show a few minutes ago. Not just via telephone, but via cell phone, and not just via cell phone, but via cell phone while driving down the freakin’ highway. MLB Home Plate producer Brent Gambill tweets the details:
Adam Jones pulled over by police on MLB Home Plate. He said to officer, “I’m really on interview right now. . . I have to hang up with the interview. Hold on 1, 2 seconds? Can I hang-up with you guys?”
He called back into the show a few minutes later. Turns out he was pulled over for his windows being tinted too dark. Brent isn’t sure where Jones was calling from, but he lives in Arizona, and they don’t have a cell phone-while-driving law, so he got off lightly.
Still, bad form Jones: driving distracted kills, dude.
