Chris Christie Says He "Would Have Gone in and Cuffed" Laremy Tunsil

Perhaps the only thing more bizarre in the sports world than Laremy Tunsil’s draft night saga is the fact Chris Christie guest-hosted Boomer & Carton on WFAN Friday. The New Jersey governor and Dallas Cowboys fan had a strong opinion on Tunsil’s gas mask video.

“It’s unbelievable because the bong hits aren’t enough,” Christie said. “Give me the gas mask too. It’s incredible. I can’t take my eyes off it. It’s unbelievable.”

Fair enough. But then Christie went a step further.

“When I was a prosecutor, I would’ve gone in and cuffed this guy,” he said. “I would’ve been all over it.”

Uhhh. Okay?

People say things they don’t mean all the time on morning-drive time sports radio. So there’s always the possibility Christie was hamming it up.

If not, I can’t imagine how much he would hate this column portraying Tunsil as a victim.

One person who would have loved a top pick getting handcuffed during the draft? Roger Goodell. Just think of the excitement.
