Attempting to get contraband into a prison is pretty common; both mundane and more creative smuggling methods have been tried at detention centers across the globe.
Christen Moore of Michigan, however, thought he’d come up with the perfect plan.
He sewed some heroin, weed, tobacco, three cell phones and a charger into a football.
But then, Moore demonstrated why he’s never gonna play in the NFL.
The pigskin only made it past one of two fences at the G. Robert Cotton Correctional Facility in Jackson, and he was immediately spotted by guards and arrested.
Smuggling carries a five year term per item...so Mr. Moore could be looking at a couple of decades of weightlifting and push-ups to help strengthen that throwing arm!
