Audio Of Michael Dyer Traffic Stop Released: 'You're Being A Total Dumbass'

Michael Dyer's Sunday dismissal from Arkansas State was said to stem from a "violation of team rules," like scores of dismissals before it. But the specifics of that violation are coming out, namely with the release of audio from a traffic stop that is said to be at the core of Dyer moving on from the Red Wolves.

The Arkansas Times cites a paywalled Jonesboro Sun report in saying that Dyer was stopped with a gun and a substance believed to be marijuana in March, for which he was given a fine. The Sun also quotes the officer involved as saying "Carrying a pistol around? Uncool ... You've got a career ahead of you but you're being a total dumbass right now."

If you would like to hear that, Rivals' Arkansas State site has audio of the stop. (MP3 here.) It sounds like a talented athlete throwing a second chance away, and the heartbreaking part is that Dyer seems to realize it.
