'Vice or Price'? Don Johnson as Sonny Crockett in Miami Vice drove a fancy car while fighting the drug world. Now Don is suspected of trying laundering $8 billion in bonds, stocks and credit notes in Germany. He said he was there to buy a car. Some car!

How on earth did Don Johnson get 8 billion dollars? Did Cheech give it to him?

Finally, cars don't cost $8 billion.

This guy has a sense of humor. I like that. I guess you'd have to set the right tone when talking about a Miami Vice star in the Miami Herald.

Well you could believe that story (wildly circulating in Germany btw). Or you could read another account in which this is said:

"A German customs spokesman said on Wednesday that there was no criminal investigation underway into the documents found in Johnson’s car."

Someone write to the Miami Herald and tell them that the photo labeled "Don Johnson" is actually Billy Bragg.

Didn't this story start in England's The Sun newspaper? That should be a hint for people to take this "story" with a very large grain of salt.

Wasn't Don Johnson an explorer who discovered Miami in 1984?

I guess his crappy power pop album sold better than we thought.
