Blazers say Miles not sting's target
Quick's story:

The Trail Blazers said forward Darius Miles was in the wrong place at the wrong time Wednesday when he became caught in a police sting in his hometown of East St. Louis, Ill.

An Associated Press story reported that one of Miles' friends was arrested on drug charges and another friend was booked after he threw a loaded gun out of the car. Patterson disputed this report, however, saying Miles was with one passenger, who was cleared of wrongdoing.

Can't tell you how many times that's happened to Waingroh.
