Former Redskins running back Clinton Portis made a lot of money during his career, so I’m struggling to understand how this happened.
Portis traveled to Charlotte to take part in the CIAA festivities.
He was preparing to return to the airport when he got the ride of his life.

Clinton Portis was expecting a fancy town car to take him to the airport this morning — instead, he got a ’99 Honda Civic and a driver who wouldn’t put down a bucket of fried chicken … so, of course, he took pics.
Portis tells TMZ Sports … “A 75 year old woman pulled up in a black 99′ Civic, and there’s two baby seats in the back.” “I put my bag on the baby seat and I got in the front. The lady was eating Bojangles [chicken]. I said ‘this gotta be a prank.”
It was no prank. This chicken-chowing chauffeur then asked Portis if HE knew the way to the airport. Not a good sign.
“We were at a red light and she punched the gas. We spun out. I couldn’t stop laughing.”
Portis eventually made it to the airport but said everyone was staring when he climbed out of the car.
“I tried to tip her, but she declined,” he tells us.
