Former Phoenix Sun Guard Kevin Johnson Gets Jacked
Sacramento’s mayor, former Phoenix Suns point guard Kevin Johnson, was robbed over the weekend while helping an elderly man into a cab.
Johnson was in San Francisco’s Union Square for an arts education conference when the incident went down. The robber snatched his bag, which had a suit, toiletries and shoes. He later blogged about it.
“Not the end of the world, but frustrating. The real crime was the vulnerability of it all, the idea that I could leave my bag on a crowded street, turn my back for 30 seconds and have my stuff stolen.” Johnson wrote. “Next time I see San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom, I’ll tell him the story and give him my word nothing like that will happen to him in Sacramento. And I’ll hope I can make good on the promise.” –Linda Hobbs
