Ravens’ Derrick Martin Arrested, Baltimore Sun Gives Its Readers Whiplash
by November 30, 1999 @ 12:00 am (Category : Blogs )

Baltimore Ravens cornerback Derrick Martin was arrested over the weekend for marijuana possession. Since Martin isn’t a big name, that’s the kind of story that usually gets reported and then forgotten.

But Martin lied about it, and the showed absolutely no skepticism at all about that lie, so here we are, still talking about it.

To review: As soon as Martin claimed that he hadn’t been arrested, the put up a headline reading, “Ravens’ Martin Mistakenly Linked to Drug Arrest: Initial media reports implicated cornerback for Cleveland airport stop, but clarification revealed man had same name, birth date.”

Hell of a coincidence, huh? Two guys with the exact same name and exact same birth date, both listing addresses in Owings Mills, Maryland, the city where the Ravens’ headquarters are located.

Now the has finally caught on that no, it wasn’t another guy named Derrick Martin who was born on the same day as the Derrick Martin who plays for the Ravens and lives in the city where the Ravens are based. It was the Ravens’ Derrick Martin who was arrested. Glad we’ve cleared that up.
