Multiple US baseball players get extra screening at Canadian border. No protests?

5/28/10: "Baltimore Orioles outfielder Adam Jones was detained by Canadian immigration officials for a few hours Thursday night after he landed in Toronto for this weekend's series....

"They said I had a criminal record," Jones said. "My mom raised me better than that. I've never done anything like that, been involved in anything criminal in my entire life. It was a long, pointless situation because of the circumstances, but I'm glad everything got cleared."

  • "We went to immigration," he said. "I was considered detained."

Jones blamed the incident on a case of mistaken identity.

"They had the wrong person," Jones said. They thought I was somebody else."

  • Jones said he was not told whether he had been mistaken for NFLplayer Adam "Pacman' Jones," who has had frequent legal troubles."...
