Somebody is Lying About James Posey's Arrest

Greg Cote first pointed this out.
James Posey's version of events is starkly different from the version told by police. This could get ugly. Here's how the Associated Press tells it (my bolding):

Posey, who was released from jail in Miami-Dade County on Monday afternoon after posting $1,000 bond, issued an apology through the team Monday night, yet also denied the charge.

"Please know that I was neither intoxicated nor was I driving at the time," Posey said.

Posey was arrested after police said he was pulled over for stopping in the middle of a double-lane road.

According to police, Posey was talking to occupants of other vehicles and pedestrians. Posey displayed "bloodshot eyes, slurred speech and an odor of an alcoholic beverage on his breath," the police report said.

Either one of those claims from Posey ought to get him off the hook, right? He could be intoxicated or driving, and get off scot-free. But the police say he was both.

Someone is lying more than a little. Unless Posey ends up pleading guilty, I'm not sure we'll ever be able to find out the truth.

Only one little tangential aspect of either story is publicly verifiable. Did Posey have bloodshot eyes that night? You be the judge. Here's the mug shot.
