MIAMI -- Washington Redskins safety Sean Taylor faces up to 46 years in prison after two additional assault charges were filed against him Friday.


Taylor

Michael Grieco, an assistant state attorney, said the charges reflect Taylor's alleged threatening of three people with a gun in an armed confrontation over an all-terrain vehicle on June 1.

Taylor, 22, now faces three counts of aggravated assault, each of which carries a minimum sentence of three years and a maximum of 15 years in prison. He also faces one misdemeanor battery charge that carries a potential one-year prison term.

Trial is scheduled to begin March 20 for Taylor, a former University of Miami star who signed a seven-year, $18-million contract after being drafted by the Redskins in 2004. He has six interceptions and 120 tackles in his two seasons.

Taylor's attorney, Edward Carhart, said the additional charges surprised him.

"The state has had this case since June and now they're filing these added charges? It's bizarre," Carhart said.

Taylor has pleaded not guilty and remains free on $16,500 bond.

The Redskins lost to the Seattle Seahawks two weeks ago in the NFC playoffs. In a playoff victory against Tampa Bay, Taylor was ejected after spitting in the face of Buccaneers running back Michael Pittman. Earlier in that game, he ran a fumble back for a touchdown.

Taylor is definitely a horses hang-down and deserves to spend some time in jail. The guy has been a problem child since before heading into the NFL, and that hasn't subsided with a new location, money, and age... That said I'm not so sure the two new charges will stick... I don't know if he bradished the gun three seperate times and made three seperate threats... the legalities there are a little sticky. If I had to guess the prosecution added the additional charges to attempt to force him to plead guilty to at least one of them, which is what I believe will happen. I think the guy should get 90 days, at least a year of probation, a good amount of community service, and a hefty fine. An anger management and forcing him to plead guilty of a felony rather than a reduced charge should be part of the deal... recommond the minimal sentence, but force him into a situation where the moron cannot own a fire-arm ever again. This would obviously cause the charge to drop some, as the minimal sentence for ONE of his charges is currently three years, but I really don't think he deserves that....

dunno if anyones talked about this but i recently read about this dude on espn, before my time but he sounds like an extreme douche.

Quote:
From Espn.com
Conrad Dobler
The offensive lineman for the Cardinals, Saints and Bills in the 1970s and early '80s received the dubious honor of topping Page 2's list of dirtiest pro team players ever last year. He was a true villain who didn't care who he hurt, or how he hurt them. For example, he was so well known for biting (sound familiar?) that the Vikings requested rabies shots before playing against him. His unabashed dirty play resulted in several rules changes: no blocking a windpipe -- said Dobler, "When I hit a guy, I'll hit him in the throat ... he doesn't have any pads on his throat" -- and no leg whips.

Dobler got off cheap shots against Merlin Olsen and Mean Joe Greene -- in the Pro Bowl -- and Lions linebacker Charlie Weaver, among countless others.

But the cheapest, most juvenile of all came at the end of a 1974 game against the Giants, when the opposing players were shaking hands as the clock wound down. When Giant Jim Pietrzak attempted this ritual of sportsmanship, wishing Dobler good luck in the playoffs, Dobler punched him in the throat.


Here's their list of top ten villains in all sports

There was a baseball manager named John Mcgraw or something like that who would beat up umps after games if he didn't agree with the calls. I would add him. And Romo. And Victor Conte.

Not sure if this qualifys for the "Hall of Shame" but....

MIKE ALREADY BEING A MEATHEAD

According to the guys at KFFL.com, new Jaguars assistant head coach Mike Tice told Jacksonville radio station WOKV on Wednesday that he already has spoken with one of the Minnesota Vikings' 16 free agents regarding the possibility of joining the Jags for 2006. Tice declined to name the player.

The problem is that, until free agency opens, these players remain the property of the Minnesota Vikings. Thus, Tice has admitted to a tampering violation.

The development should surprise no one. Tice reluctantly conceded a year ago to the scalping of Super Bowl tickets, in blatant violation of league rules. The Commissioner imposed a $100,00 fine against Tice for the transgression.

This time around, the Vikings likely will be required to file tampering charges before the Commish can act. And we wonder whether the NFL will "stack" dissimilar offenses when disciplining guys who can't seem to stay on the right side of obvious rules.

It'll be interesting to see what happens next.

NFL | Police and courts: L. Phillips
Thu, 2 Mar 2006 05:26:46 -0800

The Associated Press reports former NFL RB Lawrence Phillips has been ordered to stand trial on assault charges for allegedly driving a car into three teenagers who argued with him following a pickup football game. The judge dismissed two counts of child abuse and one count of leaving the scene of an accident stemming from the Aug. 21, 2005, incident on a South Los Angeles soccer field. Phillips faces more than 13 years in prison if convicted of all counts, said Deborah Brazil, a deputy district attorney.

Lions | Police and courts: D. Wilkinson
Thu, 30 Mar 2006 19:34:24 -0800

The Gazette reports a lawsuit accusing Detroit Lions DT Dan Wilkinson of misleading a developer during a failed business venture three years ago will go to trial, a federal judge in Maryland ruled Monday, March 27. A judge refused to throw out the charges against Wilkinson, which are outlined in a civil lawsuit filed more than two years ago by Capital Centre LLC. The suit alleges that Wilkinson deceived Capital Centre and is personally liable for breaching a lease to build a restaurant at the Boulevard at the Capital Centre, a 55-acre retail complex in Largo, Maryland. The suit seeks $31.5 million in damages. A publicist for the Lions said Wilkinson was training on his own and was unavailable. At issue in the case is whether Wilkinson is personally liable for any damages suffered by Capital Centre as a result of defaulting on the lease.

Are You Ready For Some... ASSAULT?

Hank Williams Jr. charged with assaulting waitress

Apr 4, 2006 ? NASHVILLE, Tennessee (Reuters) - Hank Williams Jr. surrendered to police in Memphis on Tuesday to face an assault charge involving a waitress, officials said.

Image

The country music entertainer was released without bond and ordered to appear in court on Wednesday to face a charge of assault to commit bodily harm stemming from an incident last month at a hotel. His publicist said he was innocent.

Shelby County Sheriff's public relations director Steve Shular said Holly Hornbeak, 19, claimed Williams tried to kiss her when she waited on him at the hotel dining room and then choked and cursed her.

A star in his own right, Williams, 56, is a son of legendary songwriter-singer Hank Williams who died in 1953 at age 29. The younger Williams had been staying in Memphis where one of his daughters was being treated after an auto accident.

His publicist, Kirt Webster, issued a statement saying Williams was innocent of the charges and "a victim of greed." Webster said the entertainer had received a letter March 21 from Hornbeak's attorney demanding an "outlandish amount of money" and threatening a lawsuit.

Hornbeak wasn't immediately available for comment.


I didn't want to start a new thread for this so I put it here.

LF, Did you see the latest in the Sean Taylor ordeal??? He turned down a plea that would have recommended probation (no jail time), but would have forced him to plead to committing a felony. He refused and is going to stand trial some time soon.
