Mr Fore was better known as a lover than a fighter in the business circles I associated wayyy back in the day but I can’t talk about any of that. What I can talk about is a couple of other posts that I’ve done on Fore in the past here on Slabbed and his scrapes with the law.  You see folks Slabbed’s old posts on the topic received quite the workout yesterday courtesy of google searches related to Fore’s arrest Thursday in Biloxi on felony cocaine possession and assualt.

I can say, but caution it is gossip, informed gossip but gossip nonetheless, that the man sports a net worth north of $60MM these days, thus the head scratching over his numerous scrapes with the law in what should be his golden years.  A 70 year old man smacking his girlfriend around in public? And getting caught with enough cocaine to merit a felony charge in the process.  Jeezus H. Christ dude!!!

Previous coverage on Slabbed of Mr Fore can be found by clicking here and here. As always the reader comments are enlightening.  The most highly rated comment on Baker’s story would sum up popular opinion in Harrison County IMHO:

Couldn’t of happened to a finer D-Bag!

So it turns out Cotton is both a fighter and a lover.
