Michael Irvin Ok After Gun Incident
In one of the more bizarre car jacking incidents in recent memory, former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Irvin went unharmed when his attacker recognized him and the two began talking football.
According to NFL News Feed, the 42-year-old Hall of Famer was "unharmed in an incident Monday night in the Dallas area in which a person in another vehicle pointed a gun at him.
According to the Morning News, which cited a police report, the Hall of Fame wide receiver and broadcaster was in a vehicle and was stopped at a red light when the driver of a vehicle next to him rolled down the window. Irvin rolled down his window and saw a passenger in the other vehicle holding a gun, according to the Morning News.
But the passenger recognized Irvin and, according to the report, the two talked about the Cowboys before the other vehicle drove off.
"The passenger pulled out a semiautomatic and I knew what time it was," Irvin told the Morning News in an interview. "But he said, 'Oh, that's Michael Irvin, with the Dallas Cowboys.'... So we started talking about the Cowboys and everything. Then they got back on the highway."
Irvin told the newspaper he was scared but kept the conversation going.
"I tell you what, I'm glad he was a Cowboy fan," Irvin told the Morning News."
