Still on probation for impaired driving, Riders QB Vince Young gets permission to play in Canada

Saskatchewan Roughriders quarterback Vince Young has received permission from a Texas judge to play football in Canada, according to the Austin American-Statesman.

The 33-year-old required clearance from the court because he pleaded no contest last January to driving while intoxicated and was sentenced to 18 months probation.

From the story:

Police say he admitted to drinking three or four beers on the evening of Jan. 24, 2016 when they pulled him over on the North Interstate 35 service road for driving erratically. According to the affidavit, Young had a strong odor of alcohol and slurred speech.

He struggled to complete a field sobriety test and lost balance during instructions. He refused a breathalyzer, and his blood-alcohol concentration came back 0.246 — three times the legal limit — according to the county attorney’s office.

Young completed several requirements of his probation, including attending a victim impact panel, and a 12-hour DWI education class, his attorney, Aaron Mueller, told the American-Statesman. Young still must complete 60 hours of community service and must continue to maintain a device in his vehicle that won’t start if it detects alcohol on his breath.

Young is expected to be Riders training camp when it opens next week.

    lolololol WOW! what more needs said. Great work Mr Young ..yeah 3 or 4 beers! So what was Jones’s plan if he wasn’t able to get in the country?
    I stand corrected on Young. Contrary to my previous statements I now believe he is the perfect fit for the Riders and will fit in nicely….maybe instead of the barber chair there should have been a holding cell installed instead in the new locker room.

    • Ross2013 // May 17, 2017 at 6:04 pm //

      If an article like this was written about every CFL player with a criminal background, this website would be flooded with pieces about multiple players from every team, including the Stampeders. Stop acting like the golden child

  2. mrnehnehincognito // May 17, 2017 at 4:18 pm //

    So everyone in Regina is OK with this guy driving around your streets where your children play??????
    It’s all ok as long as he delivers those wins????

    • Hadenufofmrnehnehincognito // May 17, 2017 at 4:28 pm //

      As ok as everyone in Calgary is with Tommie Campbell selling drugs to their kids…..Get a life!!!

      • mrnehnehincognito // May 17, 2017 at 4:38 pm //

        lol You love standing behind that don’t you. CHARGES DROPPED!..anyways you are just dodging the underlying issue with your team. Why is Jones continually and knowingly bringing in these types of players?? Anyways there is no evidence that Campbell would ever sell kids drugs

  3. Scottsask // May 17, 2017 at 4:22 pm //

    Zzzzzzzzzzzz, isn’t there a drug dealer on theStamps? Zzzzzzzzzz

    • mrnehnehincognito // May 17, 2017 at 4:27 pm //

      yep I knew you were going to hide behind that as always.. FYI charges dropped 🙂 ..anyways this is an another on an ever growing list of guys Jones signs knowing they have issues. 3 this off season alone. So even if Campbell was charged that’s still 3-1 (for all you keeping score)

      • Hadenufofmrnehnehincognito // May 17, 2017 at 4:32 pm //

        Get a life zero, you and 3rd down nation are the ones that like to make a big deal of anything Riders. Admit that the Riders own you like I said along time ago, if they didn’t you would be able to function without a Rider story to spew on…You need help boy!!!!

      • You know I keep looking for Stamps stories so I can go there and just say stupid stuff to piss of their fans and especially you, just like you on all Rider stories (I know you secretly want to join Rider nation where all of the cool kids are). The only problem is I can’t find any stories about the Stamps and that’s because they have a crappy fan base and no one cares. Actually that is no surprise to me because I lived in Calgary for 12 years and it was easy to go to the Rider games and take over the place.

    • Riders Suck // May 17, 2017 at 8:43 pm //

      Hahahahaha Chris jones continues to make a laughing stock out of the riders so awesome

  4. SaskWatch // May 17, 2017 at 4:26 pm //

    Outstanding investigative journalism!

    I see mrnincumpoop is all over this story.

  5. Between the incognito fool, and the pathetic attempts to gouge the Riders at every opportunity, 3Down is becoming an embarrassment to the online journalism community. It’s really a shame since, in between the foolishness, there is a lot of quality. Class it up please.

    • mrnehnehincognito // May 17, 2017 at 4:40 pm //

      Gouge the Riders. I think its Jones doing that not me or 3 Downnation..is this a made up story?

      • See you are secretly Donald Trump. Comments are about as intelligent too and the belief that because you say it, it’s true. LMAO

    • SaskWatch // May 17, 2017 at 4:42 pm //

      Well said Ty.

    • They’re just reporting the facts ty this isn’t stamplands fault

    • Judge Jones // May 18, 2017 at 10:55 am //

      Before going off on the reporter you might want to see what exactly he said. He just said Young had received permission to work in Canada. The rest of the article is from the police report.
      Now, if Jones would keep himself from doing silly things nobody would have a reason to write about your team. All Jones had to do was take the lead and explain the situation and defuse the story instead of waiting for 3DN to do it. If you can’t be upfront someone else will do it for you. That simple.

  6. Instead of commenting on every persons shortcomings in life stick to commenting on football itself

    • mrnehnehincognito // May 17, 2017 at 4:55 pm //

      Its not about peoples’ short comings its about the choices of a particular organization

    • Judge Jones // May 18, 2017 at 10:58 am //

      Three times over the legal limit a shortcoming? Those are the shortcomings that kill people.

  7. Chris Jones // May 17, 2017 at 4:51 pm //

    I’m texting while driving drunk RIGHT NOW.
    Catch me if you can, coppers!
    Woooooooooo

  8. The only joke around here is Mr. nehnehincogNUTo. Get a life, Loser.

  9. Antlerman // May 17, 2017 at 5:19 pm //

    Well i am suprised he was allowed entry into Canada i guess our law makers .dont consider him a risk to the public

    • mrnehnehincognito // May 17, 2017 at 5:25 pm //

      That doesn’t help me sleep better at night

      • SaskWatch // May 17, 2017 at 5:53 pm //

        If THIS keeps you up at night you’re a bigger loser than I thought… Get some help already.

        • mrnehnehincognito // May 17, 2017 at 8:41 pm //

          THIS doesn’t keep you up SaskWatch?? A man that willfully gets so drunk he’s 3 times over the limit and drives erratically. I have daughters 17 and 19 who drive and are sometimes out late ..YOU ARE DAM RIGHT IT KEEPS ME UP

    • Marc Lebut // May 18, 2017 at 2:16 pm //

      I’m suprised too. If he wasn’t who he is, he’d never got in.

  10. Ladd Law // May 17, 2017 at 5:38 pm //

    And this is news why??? Wholly fan the flames 3D . . you will have the Rider haters frothing at the mouth for days and days. But maybe that’s what you want???

    • mrnehnehincognito // May 17, 2017 at 5:53 pm //

      This may not be big news in of it’s self Ladd Law but it is important news. Citizens deserve to know when a criminal is allowed into the country and Chris Jones will draw headlines with these mtters. Sorry Ladd law but his reputation proceeds him.

  11. Facts Are Facts // May 17, 2017 at 5:54 pm //

    Let’s not forgot the sister loving predator the Stumps brought to Canada yrs ago. Swampland needs to shut up

    • mrnehnehincognito // May 17, 2017 at 6:09 pm //

      I guess 2 wrongs make a right if you’re from Saskatchewan?
      Tony Washington Case was different. Read up on it. This wasn’t a criminal incident.
      STOP DEFLECTING. You are only hurting yourself.

  12. Antlerman // May 17, 2017 at 6:10 pm //

    Stampy preaches about public safety but its just an excuse to express his weird obsession with Chris Jones.
    Stalker Type

    • mrnehnehincognito // May 17, 2017 at 6:15 pm //

      lol oh Antlerman. You are nothing if not entertaining. Don’t ever change 🙂

  13. Washington is nonetheless a registered sex offender in the US and Calgary gave him a 2nd chance. Some people do not understand 2nd chances or the similarities of the cases.

    • mrnehnehincognito // May 17, 2017 at 6:23 pm //

      Well please explain Wil!
      Washington was 16 grew up in an environment where he didn’t realize right or wrong when it came ti societies norms. Since then he’s grown to be a productive citizen with a Family of his own. Anyone that doesn’t understand the circumstances of this is narrow minded, uneducated and sheltered.

  14. Solara2000 // May 17, 2017 at 6:33 pm //

    Could the Rider and Stamp fans find their own site – your incessant, peurile bickering is annoying and destroying the experience for the rest of us. Thank you for your consideration.

    • mrnehnehincognito // May 17, 2017 at 6:35 pm //

      This site offers stories for everyone that’s what’s so great about it.

    • Marc Lebut // May 18, 2017 at 2:20 pm //

      Solara2000, I’m with you. In French, we have a word for that: “lamentable”. I don’t know if the meaning is the same in English, but it suits this perfectly in French.

  15. As per Wil the law is still the law. Both are entering Canada under legal scrutiny. Both are getting 2nd chances with their new clubs. I’m no Young fan, just looking at what is out there to be scrutinised by everyone.

    • mrnehnehincognito // May 17, 2017 at 7:06 pm //

      No Washington HAD his 2nd chance and passed it with flying colors. He was a young prospect that happened to have this stigma attached to him.
      Young is an old washed up long shot at best who has displayed narcissistic tendencies and a sense of entitlement since High school or college. The driving drunk was just another example of this continuing behavior.
      Young will receive “god like status” like no other in Regina one can only imagine the trouble this could cause

  16. Vincent Young may well do fine in the CFL. He will have to aquaint himself with learning how to count to 12,play on a larger field and finally — acclimatize himself to
    5% SUDS!

    • Judge Jones // May 18, 2017 at 11:06 am //

      And you are going to send a guy to learn how to count to 12 to Saskatchewan?

  17. Facts Are Facts // May 17, 2017 at 7:10 pm //

    Washington was 16 grew up in an environment where he didn’t realize right or wrong when it came ti societies norms. Since then he’s grown to be a productive citizen with a Family of his own. Anyone that doesn’t understand the circumstances of this is narrow minded, uneducated and sheltered.

    Garbage human being, fits right into the culture the Stumps look for.

    • mrnehnehincognito // May 17, 2017 at 7:18 pm //

      Ignorant comment. Washington is not a garbage human being. He as turned his life around and had a great career in the CFL. Time to wake up and get out of your shell. The world isn’t all white picket fences and Sunday morning church anymore. You’re xenophobia isn’t becoming of you

      • Ladd Law // May 18, 2017 at 12:26 pm //

        No more ignorant than your usual comment. Kettle looking a little black Mr doublestandard . .

    • mrnehnehincognito // May 17, 2017 at 7:22 pm //

      Garbage human being, fits right into the culture the Stumps look for

      So if that’s the culture Calgary is looking for what is the culture Chris Jones is looking for?

  18. if it wasnt for mrincogwhateverhisnameis, there would be no comments. stop feeding the zoo animal and he will go away. clearly he needs to retreat to his palace

    • mrnehnehincognito // May 17, 2017 at 7:24 pm //

      I love my cage

    • SaskWatch // May 17, 2017 at 7:52 pm //

      That sounds like a helluva plan. What do you say Rider fans? Ignore mrnincumpoop?

      • mrnehnehincognito // May 17, 2017 at 8:00 pm //

        you can do what you want. It’s a free wonderful country. If Rider fans ignore me they can I won’t stop me from expressing my opinions. Believe it or not the world doesn’t revolve around you!

      • I quit long ago, the guy is actually ruining the experience for a lot of people. I am in!!!!!Go Riders!!!! If we quit commenting then 3rd down has to get different click bait…

        • mrnehnehincognito // May 17, 2017 at 8:44 pm //

          you quit along time ago…and yet…here you are!!!!!!
          You rider fans amaze me! You like to think you have power to influence things..you don’t!!!!!!!!! go ahead leave

          • But they don’t they come back for more , where will they be week 10 and they have 1or 2 wins and we’re undefeated lol that’s when they’ll all leave

        • Judge Jones // May 18, 2017 at 6:33 pm //

          There you go again! Why is it you think 3DN is there for your sole pleasure? If you think its only purpose is to bash the Riders than I have to ask: Why stay and get abused as you feel you are?

      • Ladd Law // May 18, 2017 at 12:30 pm //

        Very hard to do because it is everywhere. Repeated requests to cease and desist have fallen on death ears, closed minds, childish thoughts or any other reason they’re not getting it. I am sure a psychologist has a good explanation for the obsession. Certain a good material for anyone completing the PhD work on the subject of OCD.

        • SaskWatch // May 18, 2017 at 6:33 pm //

          mrmindlessincognito is a troll, plain and simple. Oh he’s a head case to be sure, but then, all trolls are. I mean check out the timestamps on his comments. He’s literally on this site all day/all night spewing whatever it takes to get a rise out of Rider fans. Now THAT’S a troll on a mission.

          The only way to deal with any troll is to ignore them, and I wish Rider fans would at least give it a shot. At the very least he’d be frustrated as hell, and that in itself would be gratifying.

  19. Haters gonna hate…

  20. Scottsask // May 17, 2017 at 8:07 pm //

    Zzzzzzzzzz

  21. Wake up your missing the show !!

  22. mrnehnehincognito // May 17, 2017 at 9:09 pm //

    so again back to my original question before everyone took this off topic..What was Jones plan if Young hadn’t been able to get in the country?

  23. I don’t understand how ANY US player with a criminal record can come into Canada and get a job playing football! Canada Border Services wake the F**k up! Stop ALL of them and turn them around at the border. That’s what the US would do!

  24. Onehitwonder // May 17, 2017 at 11:33 pm //

    Stamps stampsland mr. Incognito whatever you want to call yourself or however many personalities you have some of your posts are somewhat coherent and insightful the fact that you want to troll Riders fans is fine with me I could care one way less or another but the fact remains it borders on the sociopath. Think about how you sound to them you’re just a 400 pound boy living in your mother’s basement try going outside taking a breath of fresh air maybe go for a walk. You post on everything on here so your points of view mean nothing to anybody.

    • mrnehnehincognito // May 18, 2017 at 12:07 am //

      I’m not 400lbs. Mom cut back my pizza pops and I’m down to 375!!!! Outside?? noway it’s raining and there are some teenagers that scare me

  25. Facts Are Facts // May 17, 2017 at 11:55 pm //

    But they don’t they come back for more , where will they be week 10 and they have 1or 2 wins and we’re undefeated lol that’s when they’ll all leave

    Lol Another playoff choke coming in November too. Will look on that loudmouth loser at QB!

  26. 3 or 4 beers?? For a guy as big as Young is he does not hold his liquor very well. Hopefully he learned his lesson and will eat more next time he has a few. The food will help absorb the drinks and keep him sober!!

    • mrnehnehincognito // May 18, 2017 at 8:51 am //

      That’s because it wasn’t 3 or 4 beers. He was lying to the police it was more like 10-15 beers probably.

  27. Mr Curling can’t believe Vince drove himself, surely his contract provides for a limo driver in Regina

  28. Facts Are Facts // May 18, 2017 at 9:27 am //

    That’s because it wasn’t 3 or 4 beers. He was lying to the police it was more like 10-15 beers probably.

    Wheres the proof mommas troll in her basement, or just making stuff like always?

    • mrnehnehincognito // May 18, 2017 at 10:54 am //

      Fine I can’t say for sure how many he had but I can a sure you it’s far more tan he claimed. A man that size would not be 3 times over the limit on 3 or 4 beers.

    • Nice cut and paste job clown face it the stamps are the class of the league and have been for years nobody is better then our Texas star qb

  29. mrnehnehincogNUTo, Why don’t you go start your own blog. You can ramble all you want about Chris Jones and the hated (by you) Riders. No one else would follow you but at least 3 Down Nation would be back to some credibility.

  30. I’m way more secure with a fella whose had a DUI and is paying for it than a drug dealer who weaseled out of his charges. The going concern from Calgary claims charges are all that’s needed to convict Riders, yet that doesn’t apply to Stamps? Very poor form.

    • mrnehnehincognito // May 18, 2017 at 10:57 am //

      How do you know he weaseled out of it? Do you know the specifics of the story or are you just speculating???? Yeah thought so

    • mrnehnehincognito // May 18, 2017 at 11:02 am //

      This story doesn’t just speak to the actual specifics of Vince Young and his DUI. It speaks to the larger issue of Chris Jones choosing to look past everything and perhaps even preferring to have players with aggressive off field characteristics. He’s trying to build a 1970’s like raider team except his backward ideologies fail to realize this doesn’t fly in 2017.

      • Funny how Coach Jones isn’t even mentioned in the article, yet that’s all you got out of it. You are so infatuated with him that anything Rider related becomes a hate filled rant. Its time for you to move on, he left the Stamps for the Argos a long time ago, that’s life in the CFL, get over it already.

  31. mrnehnehincognito // May 18, 2017 at 11:05 am //

    Does Regina have the types of stores I’m sure Mrs Young is accustomed to shopping in? I’m sure SAAN isn’t going to cut it for her

    • Keep your racist diatribe to yourself, you evil little man.

    • Judge Jones // May 18, 2017 at 11:30 am //

      SLGA?

    • Ladd Law // May 18, 2017 at 4:05 pm //

      You’re pathetic and disturbing and the fact 3D doesn’t deal with you shows poorly on them. I read you are 40 something . . . the maturity gene obviously skipped you. Childish boor and typical Stump fan.

      • mrnehnehincognito // May 18, 2017 at 7:36 pm //

        wow. you have read enough to piece together I’m 40 something, …….who’s obsessed here?

        • Ladd Law // May 19, 2017 at 10:27 am //

          You shared it. Providing personal details in a forum like this really points to insecurity and no life. Looking for friends I guess. None in the basement? Mom chased them away? As long as you hate on all things Riders, you’ll be hearing push back.

      • SaskWatch // May 18, 2017 at 9:33 pm //

        See what I mean LL… Typical troll response.

        You can’t insult a troll (but kudos for trying)… They thrive on insults!

    • Hahahahaha hahahahaha awesome

  32. They should get Johnny Football. They’d have a beer-soaked 1,2 punch at QB

  33. mrnehnehincognito // May 18, 2017 at 3:20 pm //

    I just wanted to wish Vince Young the best of luck in training camp

  34. Scottsask // May 18, 2017 at 4:35 pm //

    How very gentlemanly of you.

    • mrnehnehincognito // May 18, 2017 at 4:49 pm //

      I wish every team in this league to do well. But I’m also real about who has a chance of that and who doesn’t and I won’t deny it by not speaking of it.

    • Oh you finally woke up and realized the riders won’t go anywhere with Chris jones at the controls may as well go back to sleep Scottie lol zzzzzzzz

      • Ladd Law // May 19, 2017 at 10:29 am //

        You’re using two handles or you have one friend. Either way, you both represent the Stump fan base well. You should be proud.

        • mrnehnehincognito // May 19, 2017 at 3:59 pm //

          not using 2 handles and I have no cohort on here! I have no idea who stamps is.
          But it’s predictable you’d think that instead of facing the fact stamp fans numbers might be higher than you think!!

  35. Facts Are Facts // May 19, 2017 at 10:35 pm //

    How sad you have no friends or does mom not let you out of the basement?

  36. Southwest cowboy // May 20, 2017 at 1:34 am //

    I agree, just what was the wizard Jones’ plan if a judge in Texas had not give Young permission to travel?

    • Jones did not have any concerns about the Texas Judge allowing Young to play Football in Saskatchewan. Before the Judge gave permission — Young had to do a QB mini camp for the Judge to access. The Judge also does advanced scouting for Jones.

  37. SaskWatch // May 20, 2017 at 3:15 am //

    Gee, guess we’ll never know.

  38. We are all human and we all make mistakes. NOBODY is perfect, even the ones here that think they are.
