. . . on the dopey Chandler Jones story, that is.
Yesterday it was all Boston Herald, starting with this Erin Smith/Laurel Sweet story on page two.
Details of Chandler Jones’ ER visit remain murky
Patriots defensive end Chandler Jones was rushed to Norwood Hospital Sunday morning after he showed up at the Foxboro Police Department with a medical emergency, police dispatch records show.
But police officials won’t say what the emergency was and the police chief confirmed information was deleted from dispatch records before they were released to the Herald yesterday.
Dispatch records show Jones arrived at the police station at 7:42 a.m. Sunday and was evaluated by fire and EMS officials before being transported to Norwood Hospital just after 8 a.m.
Regardless, Foxboro police Chief Edward T. O’Leary did an end run around the Herald’s questions, “[denying] his department and officers had any dealing with Jones over the weekend and [adding] the only time he’d ever seen Jones was being interviewed on television.”
That proved to be entirely false. But why get technical about it.
Crosstown, the Boston Globe ate the firsty local tabloid’s dust, running a story on D5 that mentioned the Herald six times in 11 paragraphs.
But today the tables were turned.The Morrissey Boulevardiers have this Jim McBride/Christopher Gasper piece on D1.
Bad drug reaction cited
Source: Jones used synthetic marijuana
FOXBOROUGH — Chandler Jones had a bad reaction to synthetic marijuana leading to his admittance to Norwood Hospital Sunday, a source familiar with the situation told the Globe Wednesday.
The source said Jones lives near the Foxborough police station and walked there to seek help after he had the reaction.
Crosstown the other way, the Fargo Street Gang has a solid follow-up today, but not all the details.
Dispatch records show a Foxboro officer also secured Jones’ residence during the Sunday incident.
“The front door’s open,” the officer says when he arrives at Jones’ home, which is about a block from the station, and later reports: “Yeah, I got his keys off the kitchen table. I was able to lock the front door. If you want to just pass along to the fire he was definitely involved in Class D — Delta — before this happened, just so they know.”
Delta is a police call sign to denote the letter D, while Class D is a category of controlled substances under the state’s drug laws, according to a law enforcement source. Class D drugs include marijuana and some prescription drugs, which can be legal.
So there’s more difference between the Boston dailies than how they spell Foxboro(ugh). That’s just swell.
