When I wrote that Joshua Moore was a potential weapon at slot receiver this year in my Texas Longhorns football preview book, I didn’t mean it literally.

Here’s the money quote:

“Police say they first saw Moore through the city’s comprehensive downtown camera system, called HALO.

According to an arrest affidavit, police monitoring downtown Austin on July 5 at the police department’s Real Time Crime Center (RTCC) noticed a man “remove a firearm from his waistband, walk in between two vehicles, appearing to chamber a round by pulling the slide of the gun to the rear, and then place the firearm back into his waistband.”

When officers searched Moore they found a Glock 19 – .9mm pistol in his waistband.”

The Texas administration seems to be letting the legal process play out, but an athlete potentially throwing his career at Texas away because he wanted to play wannabe gangster is absolutely idiotic.
