Patrick Cote arrested at the New York-Canadian border


The hockey player, NOT the mixed martial artist. See what happens when someone with the same name as you gets in trouble!

From Yahoo:

A former NHL player charged with violating probation on a drug-related conviction has turned himself in to authorities in northern New York.

Malone Police Chief Chris Premo (PREE'-moh) says Thursday that Patrick Cote (KOH'-tay) surrendered Tuesday to U.S. officers at the border crossing in Champlain. He's being held in the Franklin County Jail without bail. Premo doesn't know if Cote has a lawyer.

Cote was arrested in Malone in 2002 after police found 30 pounds of marijuana in his car. He pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of conspiracy. A New York judge issued a warrant for his arrest in 2004 when Cote failed to report to Canadian probation officials.

The 36-year-old from Blairville, Quebec, played left wing for the Edmonton Oilers, Nashville Predators and Dallas Stars during a six-year NHL career.

There's an African American writer named Jesse Holland and he wrote a book called Black Men Built The Capitol and I'll periodically get his Emails. Some of them, I'm certain, were not designed to be read by white folks.

Anyone out there ever Google their own name to see what comes up?
