David Wells: The Asshat Cousin

Deadspin and the Dallas Observer have a great article talking about the cousin of Michael Crabtree, David Wells. Turns out Wells is a bail bondsman. Anyway Deadspin points out just how great of a man Crab’s cousin is.

The first thing you need to know about Wells is that he made his name as a bail bondsman. But if a man whose company’s motto is “U Ring, We Spring,” isn’t enough to turn you off, back in 2002 the Dallas Observer did a story that makes you wonder why he isn’t in jail, let alone advising a top young athlete.

A partial list of curious episodes before and during Wells’s time as head of David’s Bail Bonds:

  • Arrested for stealing boxing gloves from the Dallas Police Athletic League.
  • Banned for life by USA Boxing over allegations of misuse of funds.
  • Served as the omnipresent bodyguard shoving reporters out of the way for Michael Irvin after his arrest for possession.
  • Indicted for serving as a private investigator with a license that had lapsed four years earlier, but exonerated after a dubious receipt appeared showing he had renewed it.
  • Let off the hook for $50,000 when one of his clients skipped town, after a dubious document appeared showing he had warned the county.
  • Started a security company with a court bailiff, which is illegal due to conflict-of-interest rules.

      Now if were Chico's Bail Bonds he worked for then I would have no problem with it…

      Of course… this info was bound to come out on this clown. And THIS is who Crabtree wants speaking for him in the media? Wow, just wow. If he has any sense, the first round pick will issue a statement on how he never authorized those comments to be made by Wells, that he is not his advisor, and that he is not willing to sit out the season.

      I understand wanting to take care of family and I repsect it as well. But please, for the love of God, stop letting the idiots within the family fold speak to the media. Pathetic.

      He’s probably a diehard cowboy fan, imagine your family member playing for you Arch Rival, thats hard to support. Thats how people act in texas, doesnt suprise me, they are money hungry uptight people.
