Ex-Piston Villanueva rants about stolen toilet
Dallas — A Detroit Piston has taken to Twitter to complain that a toilet was among the items stolen from his Dallas home during a burglary.
Charlie Villanueva, 33, a former first-round pick who most recently played with the Dallas Mavericks, posted a photo of the space in his bathroom where his toilet once stood.
In a series of sometimes potty-mouthed tweets , Villanueva says his home appliances also were taken during the burglary Tuesday.
The former Piston described the episode as “mind blowing,” saying he’s “in shock.”
Villanueva criticized police for a slow response to his burglary report, saying he called four times about the purloined toilet.
Another Twitter user created the handle “Stolen Toilet” and responded to one of his tweets by asking: “Charlie are u looking for me?”
Villanueva played 11 seasons in the NBA, including five (2009-14) in Detroit, where he averaged 9.5 points per game.
