Rex Chapman, Not Apple Store Friendly

In local news former Phoenix Suns player Rex Chapman was sentenced to probation, 750 community service hours and $15,128.30 plus an additional $10,000 in restitution following his trial today were he pleaded guilty to four felony charges of shoplifting from a local Apple Store.

He was accused of stealing $14,000 worth of Apple products from the Scottsdale Apple Store over a period of 7 thefts, he would use the store’s “Self-checkout” and would leave without paying and he would then sell the items for cash at a pawn shop. In an interview with Sports Illustrated he claims he does not remember doing it because he is addicted to pain killers.

I felt it is appropriate to skip the jail jumpsuit relic and go with a piece of evidence. Damn Chappy, drugs sure can be a bitch.


  1. In a humorous twist of fate, the day this news broke I happened to open one of my boxes for scanning and in it was a whole row of his cards. I never know what is going to be in each box and I thought it was funny when it happened.

  2. So sad. Can't imagine how sucky it must feel to go from a solid NBA player to a petty thief. Hope he's able to turn this situation around and learn from his mistakes.
