Mario Elie, Dana Stubblefield: Bad Day For Former Bay Area Athletes

Categories: Crime, Sports
Three's a trend -- and, as any outside shooter with his foot on the line knows all too well, two ain't three. Still, Thursday was a bad day for two former Bay Area superstars whose names remind local fans of better days.

Former Golden State Warrior Mario Elie, currently an assistant coach with the Sacramento Kings, was arrested following an alleged DUI yesterday. He apologized for the incident and admitted he'd had a couple of drinks -- prior to being pulled over at the alarming hour of 11:15 in the morning.

Meanwhile, Dana Stubblefield, a key member of the last San Francisco 49ers Super Bowl team in 1994, was last year sentenced to probation for lying to federal investigators about his steroid use. On Thursday, he was sentenced to 90 days in prison for stealing his ex-girlfriend's mail.

The San Francisco judge in that case, Susan Illston, is the same one who handled the abortive perjury procedure against Barry Bonds, incidentally. 

Stubblefield, fittingly, played a prisoner in the 2000 stinker Reindeer Games alongside Ben Affleck. During the making of that film, the former NFL great inadvertently knocked Affleck unconscious, hospitalizing him

Hopefully that good deed was factored into his sentencing.
