Reports of wrestler Stone Cold Steve Austin overdosing on meth has hit the air today. Austin, a familiar face in the wrestling community is known for being a wild card in the ring, which has brought along a huge fan base for him. In his prime, he would talk cans of beer and chug them before, and during his matches.
Now, that may have been an act to get the crowd fired up, but what has happened to him recently is no publicity stunt. Austin was found in his Texas house by a neighbor early Monday morning. His body was still, and his face was purple, claims the neighbor.
“I thought at first he was sleeping, I was going to give him a stunner as a joke, but once I smacked him around to wake him up, I realized he wasn’t playing around” said the neighbor
“I never knew about this demon he carried around, it is hard to tell if he is being Steve, or Stone Cold from time to time. The fact is when I found him his face was stone cold, but not in the way his fans would have liked to see him.”
It has been reported that Austin is making a full recovery, and has been looking to God for guidance. It is unclear if Austin will enter rehab, or continue his career as a wrestler. Sources have told us that for now he will remain in the hospital until further examinations are taken.
For now, Austin has not spoken to many people, and wants to be left alone with his bible. It is unknown what chapter he keeps reading, but some have a feeling that it may be John 3:16.
LINDEN, TX –
Linden Police arrested a junior high school football coach Tuesday after they say he was forcing his players to take doses of methamphetamine before practice.
According to Linden Police Chief Alton McWaters parents of students had complained about strange behavior by their children following football practices.
“My son would come home and just act really strange,” said LaQuita Jones, a mother of one student. “He would just stand and stare at the walls for like an hour. Then one day I walked in to my kitchen and he was sitting on the floor next to a pile of his own feces saying, ‘look, I made Jesus’. That’s when I knew something wasn’t right.”
Linden Police sent undercover officers to the school on Tuesday before football practice was scheduled to begin. That’s when McWaters says that one of his undercover officers witnessed the coach giving meth to the students.
Carl Allen Byers, the teacher and coach of the school’s football team, was taken in to custody immediately after undercover officers spotted the coach giving the drug to players.
Byers told officers, “I didn’t know it was wrong. I was just trying to give them a boost of energy.”
Arrested in connection with the incident was William Duncan, who was charged with delivery of a controlled substance in a drug-free zone. Duncan has bonded out of jail, says Police Chief Alton McWaters.
Duncan was picked up in the parking lot of Mae Luster Stephens Junior High School. Linden is about 40 miles southwest of Texarkana, Texas.
McWaters also says officers found drugs in the coach’s truck.
