Kobe Bryant plays QB at Navy
Not really, of course, but this story screams Kobe and Eagle County, Colorado.
According to the hardworking folks at the Associated Press, Lamar Owens, quarterback of Navy's 2005 football squad, has been charged with raping a female midshipmen last month in her dorm room.
Now this isn't just another case of an athlete breaking the law. Because this little mishap went down on what they're calling "academy grounds," Owens was charged under the Uniform Code of Military Justice, and the investigation is being handled by the Naval Criminal Investigation Service (NCIS) -- you know, like the TV show.
It's not clear what the punishment will be, but, if convicted, maybe he'll be like deported or something.
The more we think about this, the more we think that this is
1. Terrible and
2. Who would be hot enough to nail at the Naval Academy? G.I. Jane hanging out there now?
