All Praise to Mr. Styles N. Beckles

So, a Delaware County prosecutor went all loud with the allegation that Correll Buckhalter, a former Eagle and current Bronco, bought drugs'n'shit. (Um, yo legal dude, we kind of all suspected that ever since the time he got caught with weed on South Street, nahmean?)
But what caught my eye on this afternoon, as I paused The Running Man for a moment, was the dude on trial's name.
Deputy District Attorney Katayoun M. Copeland, addressing the jury, said that Styles N. Beckles, 36, of Clifton Heights, had told police that he sold drugs to pro athletes, including Buckhalter and Keita Crespina, a former Temple University football player.
No charges have been filed against Buckhalter or Crespina.

Well, a hearty welcome to the mighty Orange-and-Blue, Corey, because I'd argue that to NOT buy drugs from a dude named Styles N. Beckles is un-American. Any self-respecting person would, too. Hell, you might be able to say the same for a dude named Katayoun M. Copeland.
