Ralph Sampson jailed for not knowing basic rules of owning a car

Ralph Sampson/ Co. Jail

What is that saying...Ignorance of the law is no excuse for breaking it or something like that? It's something that now applies to the life...and driving habits of former NBA star and current Duluth, Georgia resident Ralph Sampson.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the former NBA legend spent his Tuesday night behind bars after trying to go through a drivers license checkpoint with expired tags on his car. And no, that wasn't the only reason he was jailed.

Sampson also had a suspended license because he didn't meet child support obligations and had a 2008 Insurance violation.

Tis a sad, sad state that Mr. Sampson is in. We came across him several times in our time in the A-T-L area and though we did not bother him, he was always amiable and friendly to people who did. He obviously has some issues to deal with and we hope he isn't one of those who are broke after making millions as a pro athlete.

We give you video of the largest man to ever compete in the Slam Dunk contest, circa 1984:
