Like most people, Leroy Hill was sound asleep Saturday at 4 in the morning. What put the Seahawks linebacker into the news was that he was sound asleep in the driver’s seat of his car, and his car happened to be sitting at a busy intersection in suburban Atlanta.
When a policeman detected the scent of something suspicious in the car – as if passing out at a busy intersection weren’t suspicious enough – Hill was arrested for misdemeanor possession of marijuana.
Some perspective is in order. Falling asleep at a busy intersection has its hazards, not the least of which is arousing the road rage of drivers who aren’t in a forgiving mood so early in the morning. But on the menace-to-society scale, falling asleep in a parked car at 4 a.m. isn’t nearly as dangerous as speeding through a school zone at 4 p.m.
