Former Cowboy Great Changes Story After Arrest

When police found drug paraphernalia in Michael Irvin's car, the former Dallas Cowboys star told the officer the pipe belonged to his brother. That contradicts what he said in interviews yesterday and again today. Irvin told The Associated Press yesterday and repeated in an interview today that the drug pipe found in his car during a traffic stop belonged to a friend. He declined to name the friend, but said it was someone he's known for 17 years. But in a court document obtained by The Dallas Morning News, Irving is quoted as telling police --"It's my brother's, he left it in there." The quote was part of notes the officer wrote to himself. The officer also wrote that the pipe was found in a Versace sunglasses case under a driver's seat compartment, with a "baggie corner sticking out of it." Irvin is now an NFL analyst for ESPN. He is the third-youngest of 17 children. Irving is 39 and his youngest sibling is around 30.
