UPDATED: NAJEH. DAVENPORT. CAR. CHASE.


The last time we heard from former Steeler RB Najeh Davenport, he was getting out of football and into male modeling, giving us dramatic photos like the one you see above.

This time around, Najeh's back in the news, but for a completely different non-football-related reason. It seems that The Dump Truck left his 1970 Chevy Impala running outside of his home, proving too tempting for one Rodney Terrell Green, who promptly hopped in Najeh's ride and high-tailed it with Davenport in hot pursuit, giving us a Dukes of Hazzard-esque storyline that I could not have dreamed in my wildest imagination.

The chase ended up exactly where car chases always end up in Pittsburgh...the Brownsville Road Foodland parking lot, where Davenport spotted Green and stopped him with the help of witnesses until police arrived.


Green will be charged with four counts of accidents involving damage to unattended vehicle or property, theft by unlawful taking or disposition and receiving stolen property. And Davenport adds to his tremendously colorful non-football resume, which I would argue rivals any other running back in recent history.

UPDATE:

Here's what the car looked like after all was said and done

What I find most shocking about this story is that there are still Foodlands in existence.

That pic begs to be photochopped.

why is he living in that neighborhood in Carrick?

Steve said...

Does he actually live in Carrick or close by, like Brentwood or Mt. Washington?

If he does, then he's stupid twice for leaving his car running.

It's always great yelling 'give it to closet shitter' while watching Steelers' games and seeing if anyone gets the joke.

shortly after getting his car back, davenport was taken down for negative 3 yards, and a lost fumble.

This pic doesn't even need photoshopped.
