Lesson Learned: Get Your Money’s Worth Next Time

Posted by rtmsf on January 27th, 2009

Remember a couple of weekends ago when the brother of Providence player Jeff Xavier nonchalantly ambled out of the crowd, climbed over the PC bench, and proceeded to give the ref the whatfor over a non-call on a drive involving his sibling?  Just to refresh your memory of this bizarre incident, here’s the video:

Guess what? 

We know you’ll be floored by this news, but big bro Jonathan Xavier is currently on probation for three drug convictions in Rhodie in 2005.  He served eight months in the state clink and has spent the rest of the time trying to keep himself out of trouble.  Until two Saturday nights ago.  Now, according to the Providence Journal, he’s being held without bail until he appears at a preliminary hearing to determine whether he violated the terms of his probation on Feb. 10.   And it doesn’t look all that good for him.

“The baseline condition of anyone’s probation is to keep the peace and be of good behavior,” Healey said. “In plainspeak, stay out of trouble. So what’s driving this is the attorney general’s belief that Jonathan Xavier’s conduct was not only offensive but dangerous and, therefore, cannot be tolerated.”

With over five years remaining on Xavier’s original sentence, his little stroll to politely inquire about a foul may end up costing him way more than he could have imagined.  Frankly, for that much hard time in the pipeline, he should have decked the ref, the offending player from Marquette (Joseph Fulceand Buzz Williams for good measure.
