There’s bad luck and then there’s really bad luck where you attend the final Tennesee Titans preseason game — against the Bears — and the bail bondsman you’ve been running from is at the same game. That was the luck Stephen Clark, 38, had Saturday night at Nissan Stadium.
Scoop Nashville reports the bondsman contacted Nashville Metro officers working the game, and Clark was taken into custody during the 4th quarter of a Bears 27-24 victory. “(Metro) was not initially interested in the apprehension assistance and blew the bondsman off,” Scoop reported Monday. “Eventually the bondsman found another officer who got a supervisor involved and after they ran his name and the severity of the warrants, they assisted.”
Clark was arrested on a parole violation, a failure to appear warrant, and on a felony vehicle theft charge dating all the way back to 2019, according to court documents. The parole violation was for a 13-year sentence relating to cocaine and drug conspiracy charges.
Now, keep in mind that Ryan Tannehill didn’t play. Perhaps Clark just wanted to see what the hype was all about with Justin Fields who went 7-of-10 for 54 yards and one touchdown.
Let this be a lesson to all of you on the run from your bail bondsman: The minute you think it’s a good idea to catch a worthless preseason game is the minute you’re locked up and most likely missing the entire 2021 Titans season. You’re going from not a worry in the world to fighting some other guy with felony charges for the prison TV remote.
Be smarter, felons.
Stephen Clark, 38, was enjoying the @Titans game last night when his bondsman, who was also at the game, recognized him as being one of his forfeits, with 3 open felony warrants. @MNPDNashville coordinated with the bondsman until the 4th QTR then took him into custody. pic.twitter.com/Rd0JXsfTg9
