Devone Bess has had a pretty strange week. On Thursday he twitpic’d himself watching Cocaine Cowboys and smoking a blunt (for the second time in 2 weeks), on Friday Bess was arrested in an airport at Fort Lauderdale International Airport after getting in an altercation with a police officer who says he was acting irrationally, walking down the concourse singing and dancing with his pants falling down. When the officer went up to Bess to have him stop, he crushed a cup of coffee on him, and got into a fighting stance. Sources say the officer hit Bess with his ASP baton but it had absolutely no effect. Bess then took off his shirt, and got in fighting stance. That’s when he was arrested. The officer says Bess appeared to be looking through him when I was talking to him.
To top off Bess’ crazy weekend, he twitpic’d a photo of himself naked in his bathroom with the caption “WTB.”
He eventually deleted it but something tells me there is something more going on. According to Deadspin Bess’ family had him hospitalized against his will in March 2013 after exhibiting similar behavior. His family said he had been acting bizarre and hadn’t slept in 3 days. When he was restrained Bess was screaming things such as “Hide the guns,” “Where is my weed,” and “I want to get in the end zone; throw me the football,”
I’m sensing some type of mental health situation going on.
