Panthers Rookies' Bad Luck With Cars

Posted by Jarvis Holliday On 8/21/2008 No comments
While reading a news story just now about "One of Charlotte's Most Wanted," I learned that Carolina Panthers rookie Jeff Otah recently had his Cadillac Escalade stolen. Otah's brother was driving his SUV and was carjacked in uptown.

First of all, have you noticed that there seems to be a large number of carjackings happening in Charlotte lately?

And secondly, it seems like it is now bad luck to be a Panthers rookie and own a nice, new car. Last summer, then-Panthers rookie wide receiver Dwayne Jarrett had his BMW 645 totaled when he was hit while driving on the interstate.

Note to Panthers rookies, and to Charlotte Bobcats rookies for that matter: I know one of the first things you buy with your big, new paycheck is a fancy whip, but be aware of your surroundings. Charlotte isn't as small and slow as you may think. And don't forget, nearly three years ago, as a player for the Bobcats, Melvin Ely was robbed of $30,000 worth of jewelry while leaving a local strip club.
