WWE Champion CM Punk was recently at Comic-Con in Philadelphia, and the champ told a story about getting harassed by Missouri cops while traveling through the state with his "road wife" and fellow pro wrestler, Kofi Kingston.
"Him and I constantly, constantly get pulled over and always, always harassed because of how I look, and I'm with an African-American gentleman with dreadlocks," Punk says in the video. "And you cannot tell that cop there is no weed in the car. He thinks he's hit the mother lode."
Punk, who is known for living a straight-edge lifestyle, goes on to tell the story of cops profiling him and Kingston.
"We have an out-of-state car driving through Missouri," Punk says. "I have an Illinois state driver's license. Kofi has a Tampa [Florida] state driver's license. He is black. He has dreadlocks. I am covered in tattoos, and I look like I know how to make some pretty good meth."
With Punk telling the story, it's pretty funny in retrospect. The reality of it is much sadder.
Let's hope that their trip through Missouri is much easier when the WWE returns to the Sprint Center July 24 for SmackDown.
