Tennessee quarterback Tyler Bray is reportedly in court today to face charges of "reckless operation of a personal watercraft" and "failure to have a boating education certificate." The details from GVX:

According to Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency officer Dewayne Williams, Bray was driving a Jet Ski with a woman passenger when he was observed by Williams "hot dogging" with another Jet Ski. Williams explained the term "hot dogging" as "almost like playing chicken" on Jet Skis.

The other Jet Ski tipped over spilling the unidentified occupants into the water. Bray then sped near the swimmers "spraying them with water," according to Williams, who added "he was almost on top of them."

Oh, my. Who knew the possible penalty for hot dogging was $2,500 and six months in jail?

Seriously, this sounds incredible. What is the purpose of Jet Skis, if not for . . . well, I'm going to just use the term hot dogging because it's awesome. In fact, I'm going to look for reasons to use it daily from this point forward.

And what is "almost" like playing chicken? I've heard of "tastes like chicken," but I'm thinking that doesn't apply here.

And if tipping over and getting sprayed with water is evidence of criminal hot dogging, then we'd better open up a few more branches and hire a few more Wildlife Resources Agency Officers.
