Troy Aikman's Ex

I Wasn't Drunk

I Was Lost

9/2/2012 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0827_aikman_mug_wmThe ex-wife of Dallas Cowboys legend Troy Aikman insists she did nothing wrong when she was arrested this week ... claiming she was just lost when cops found her in a high school parking lot.

As TMZ first reported, Rhonda Aikman was busted on Monday morning for public intoxication after cops found her in a parked car, saying she was slurring her words when she talked and had little control over her body movement.

Aikman's lawyer, Larry Friedman, tells TMZ that Rhonda was lost, the result of bad directions, and was simply waiting for a friend to come and show her the right way. Friedman says, "When the policemen approached her, she reacted the way any of us would have reacted if we were approached from behind by two large men dressed in black. Rhonda was frightened and probably did not appear to be her usual friendly self."

Friedman says Aikman is under a doctor's care and had a rightful prescription for the medication cops found. Friedman adds, "She did nothing wrong and did not break any laws. She is sorry about all the fuss and intends to continue to dedicate her time to helping people in need in North Texas."

That is the lamest excuse, I've ever heard. If you were lost, why not just tell the cops you are lost? Why cause a scene and throw your "Troy" card?.

Honey, I've been lost before and I didn't have the need (1) For the law to "help me get found." (2) to say "DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM" or some such similar thing. Fess up bitch, you were lit.

I really hope she isn't paying this attorney much money, if this is what he considers logical defense. I think a child could come up with a better scenario than this one.

YOU KNOW WHAT IDIOTS.....When in this country did it become Guilty UNTIL proven innocent?? IF you believe in the law and constitution, then stop being cynical. The police ARE out of control around this country. It has become a police state. Admit it. I was stopped for an expired (by one week) inspection sticker in NY. On Long Island. Guess what....in the early part of the day, a soccer mom and three young children on the way to a soccer practice, and the cop approaches my drivers side with his hand on his gun. He thinks I'm too nervous...geez, you think?! So I am grilled for an hour because his partner 'thinks' I've been drinking. I don't drink at all, never have, and they have the right to assume what they want?? They were wrong, no apology was given, and I had to endure the embarrassment as a single mom by others who saw it. Great effing country we live in.

Why was she not arrested for DWI? She was behind the wheel drunk in a parking lot. Now she said she was lost so she is admitting she drove there. If it were anyone else, they would have a DWI and not a "public intoxication". She should feel lucky!

Very inventive but not as good as the seizure defense.

I wonder if the friend ever showed up?! I have a suggest for the former Mrs. Troy Aikman, get GPS. I actually have it on my iPhone and I rarely get lost let alone find the need to park in a high school parking lot and wait for a friend.

So basically she just admitted she was drunk, but drunk and zonked out on prescription drugs.
BTW, of course she was afraid of two POLICEMEN dressed in black POLICE UNIFORMS. She was drunk, stoned and obviously stupid.

Dummkopf, you said that you were driving while taking medication. You couldn't even drive, slurring your words. That's breaking the law. You may want to drive while in that condition, but I don't want you out there driving & possibly killing or hurting people.
