Patriots | Seau accused of harassing women at a bar
Fri, 12 Jan 2007 13:00:34 -0800

The Associated Press reports New England Patriots LB Junior Seau is being sued by two women after they accused him of throwing drinks at them at a bar. The women claim Seau was "obviously intoxicated" and they are seeking damages of $25,000 each. Seau's attorney, Steven Strauss, said the suit is without merit. "It's an attempt to extort money from Junior because of his celebrity," he said. "If there was any merit, these individuals would have come forward sooner, and in their own name."

Police seize $81,000 from 'Pacman' in strip club shooting

February 22, 2007

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- More than $81,000 in cash belonging to Tennessee Titans cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones was seized by police, who say the money sparked a weekend melee and a triple shooting at a strip club.

Jones was showering more than 40 strippers onstage early Monday with cash "intended as a visual effect," a search warrant said. But a scuffle broke out when the Houston promoter who hired the strippers told them to pick up the money.

The promoter, identified as Chris Mitchell, owner of "Harlem Knights," and a male associate took a plastic trash bag containing Jones' money and walked out the front door, the warrant says. Police recovered the money and two watches inside a safe at Mitchell's hotel room Monday.

Jones' lawyer, Worrick Robinson, has said his client did not know anyone involved in the shooting and was interviewed by authorities as a witness, not as a suspect. Police have not said Jones is a person of interest in the case.

Robinson could not be immediately reached for comment Thursday.

The incident occurred just hours after the NBA All-Star game in Las Vegas, which attracted celebrities from music, sports and entertainment.

The affidavit says a DJ announced Jones' arrival at the club, and then told the crowd that rap star Nelly and producer/rapper Jermaine Dupri were also there. Nelly started throwing dollar bills at the dancers' feet, the affidavit states.

A phone call to Dupri's publicist was not immediately returned Thursday.

Jones has faced criminal charges three times -- all involving nightclubs in Tennessee -- since the Titans made the cornerback the sixth overall pick in the 2005 draft.

Mitchell "admits that he took the money in the bag belonging to Jones because he thought it was for the dancers," the warrant says. After Mitchell left Minxx Gentlemen's Club & Lounge, "a melee broke out," the warrant says.

Later, a woman identified as a member of Jones' group fought with one of the strippers and security tried to break up the fight, it says. Jones told the guards to back off and reached behind his back "as if he were retrieving a weapon there."

Jones' entourage was moved outside, but the woman continued to fight, according to the warrant filed Wednesday in Clark County District in Las Vegas.

The woman hit a guard in the head with a champagne bottle and "began biting and screaming" when other guards tried to restrain her, the warrant says. Minutes later, a valet told police he heard shots fired near the front entrance and saw a black man with corn rows in his hair pointing a black semi-automatic handgun, it says. The man then fled.

The shots hit a female customer and two guards, one in critical condition in a Las Vegas hospital. Aaron Cudworth, the guard hit with the champagne bottle, and the woman, were treated and released.

Police have described the suspected shooter as last seen wearing a black shirt and blue jeans. As of Thursday morning, police said he was still at large.

Manny Arora, an attorney from Garland, Samuel & Loeb of Atlanta, said he had been retained to advise Jones, who lives in Atlanta.

"We handle a lot of sports figures down here, whether civil or criminal. So he lives down here, and I think he just wanted to get some advice from us" Arora said.

He declined to comment on the case until he had a chance to review it, but he said he had contacted Las Vegas police to let them know they will fully cooperate with whatever they need.

"I've informed them if they need any information or to get in contact with anybody ... I'll be happy to track them down," Arora said.

Titans coach Jeff Fisher, who was at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis, had no comment.

Jones promised he had seen the inside of a courtroom for the last time Feb. 1, when a judge dismissed an assault charge filed by a woman who claimed Jones spit on her in October at a nightclub. Charges in a confrontation with a club manager during a private party in July 2005 also have been dismissed.

Jones was ordered to stay out of trouble until July 5 if he wants his criminal record cleared of public intoxication and disorderly conduct charges for an August arrest in the Nashville suburb of Murfreesboro.

Robinson has said he didn't think the Las Vegas disturbance violated the judge's order.

Titans | Jones linked to drug dealer
Tue, 27 Feb 2007 16:24:59 -0800

News Channel 5 in Nashville, Tenn., reports police wiretaps and documents link Tennessee Titans CB Adam Jones to one of the largest drugs rings in recent history. Metro Police busted the ring April 1, 2006. Jones was recorded talking to Darryl Moore, who was the target of the investigation. Evidence showed that Moore may have even done drug deals from Jones' house. The recordings revealed Moore's concern that Jones' smoking pot too much may hurt his career. They also raised questions as to whether Moore was a dealer for Jones. Jones faces no charges at this time.

Jaguars Waive Carroll After Arrest
May 7, 2:35 PM (ET)

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -The Jacksonville Jaguars waived cornerback Ahmad Carroll on Monday, two days after he was arrested on weapon and drug charges.

Carroll was questioned by Atlanta police early Saturday after he was identified as someone involved during a disturbance at a restaurant, authorities said.

Atlanta police spokesman officer James Polite said Carroll acknowledged he was carrying a 9mm pistol. Police then searched his car and found 11 pink tablets believed to be ecstasy. He was arrested and charged with carrying a weapon without a license, possession of drugs and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.

Carroll, who is from Atlanta, was released Saturday on a $7,000 bond.

Carroll signed with the Jags last October, a week after he was waived by Green Bay. A first-round draft pick by the Packers in 2004, Carroll was on Jacksonville's roster for 11 games. He was active for two of them and played in one.


The decision to waive Carroll follows NFL commissioner Roger Goodell's edict that teams will be held responsible for their players' misconduct. Goodell suspended Tennessee cornerback Adams "Pacman" Jones for the 2007 season and suspended Cincinnati receiver Chris Henry for the first eight games. Both players had a history of arrests.

Carroll was Jacksonville's fifth player arrested since September.

Safety Gerald Sensabaugh was arrested in March in Kingsport, Tenn., and charged with speeding and carrying a firearm without a permit.

Receiver Charles Sharon was arrested in March in Tampa, Fla. Sharon was charged with grand theft of a firearm and carrying a concealed firearm, both felonies.

Offensive tackle Khalif Barnes was arrested in November on a drunken-driving charge after he passed a police car at 101 mph. Cornerback Brian Williams was arrested on drunken-driving charges in September.

Ricky Williams tests positive for marijuana
By STEVEN WINE, AP Sports Writer
May 11, 2007

MIAMI (AP) -- Former NFL rushing champion Ricky Williams tested positive again for marijuana last month, which will delay his return to the league until at least September, a person familiar with the case said Friday.

Williams sought to end a one-year drug suspension last month when he asked to rejoin the Miami Dolphins. But following the positive drug test, clinicians in the NFL's substance abuse program advised commissioner Roger Goodell to delay reinstatement, the person close to the case said.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because of the confidential nature of the testing program.

The Dolphins and the NFL declined comment.

Williams, who turns 30 on May 21, has played only 12 games since 2003. Before his latest setback, new Miami coach Cam Cameron repeatedly declined to say whether he would welcome Williams back.

Williams' latest positive test first was reported by ESPN.com. His agent, Leigh Steinberg, did not immediately return phone calls seeking comment.

The NFL suspended Williams in April 2006 after he violated the league's drug policy for the fourth time. That failed test apparently involved a substance other than marijuana and may have been related to his interest in holistic medicine.

Williams' previous positive drug tests were for marijuana, which he acknowledged using.

Last year Williams played in the Canadian Football League, then taught yoga in California. Steinberg recently quoted Williams as saying his interest in Eastern philosophy had overcome his desire for mind-altering substances.

Williams still owes the Dolphins $8.6 million for breaching his contract when he sat out the 2004 season, but they've given no signal they want him back.

General manager Randy Mueller traded Williams when both were with the New Orleans Saints in 2002. Two-year starter Ronnie Brown is expected to return as Miami's starter at running back, and the team acquired running back Lorenzo Booker of Florida State in the third round of the draft last month.

St. Louis Rams coach Scott Linehan, the offensive coordinator for the Dolphins when Williams last played in 2005, recently said he would consider acquiring Williams as a backup.

Williams won the 1998 Heisman Trophy at Texas and the 2002 NFL rushing title with the Dolphins. Last season with the Toronto Argonauts of the CFL, he rushed for 526 yards in 109 carries but missed two months with a broken arm.

Bengals' Thurman Accused of Assault


CINCINNATI (AP) -- Suspended Bengals linebacker Odell Thurman has been accused of kicking and hitting two men in his Georgia hometown during the weekend. He has not been charged with a crime, but a magistrate will hear testimony Friday to determine if charges should be filed.

The NFL suspended Thurman for the first four games of 2006 after he skipped a drug test. The suspension was extended to a full season following his arrest on a drunken driving charge in September. Thurman is one of nine Cincinnati players to be arrested in the past year.

Two men filed a complaint Sunday with police in Monticello, Ga., southeast of Atlanta, accusing Thurman of assaulting them early Sunday following an argument at a home, Jasper County Chief Magistrate Ken Jackson said Tuesday. The men accused Thurman's brother, Willie Thurman, of threatening them with a gun.

"Evidently, this was some type of party in the wee hours of the morning," Jackson said.

Because the allegations were not reported quickly and police were unable to conduct an immediate investigation, Jackson said, a county magistrate will hear testimony Friday to determine if anyone should be charged.

Messages seeking comment were left with Odell Thurman's agent and with the NFL.

Thurman pleaded no contest to the drunken driving charge in February. Last Friday, a judge in Cincinnati suspended all but six days of a 90-day sentence and ordered Thurman to serve those six days at a treatment center.

Thurman played two seasons at Georgia and was drafted by Cincinnati in the second round of the 2005 draft. He led the Bengals in tackles that season with 148.

Thurman can apply for reinstatement for this coming season, although earlier this year coach Marvin Lewis refused to talk about whether Thurman still figured in the team's plans.

Bengals spokesman Jack Brennan said Tuesday the team had no comment on the latest allegations.

"His situation is controlled by the league, he's not officially on our roster," Brennan said. "Since his possible reinstatement is in the league's hands, we would defer any comment to the league."


What an idiot!! Seems like he is a carbon copy of Pacman Jones. And to think I wanted the Lions to take him before the Bengals did. :oops:

:shock: Speaking of 'flushing things down toilets', our franchise tagged boy, Lance Briggs, abandoned his Lamborghini after 'someone' crashed it into a pole...

Briggs' car found after accident; LB to talk to cops

August 27, 2007
BY ASSOCIATED PRESS

LAKE FOREST -- A damaged black Lamborghini registered to Bears linebacker Lance Briggs was found abandoned early Monday alongside an expressway on the city's North Side, but it was unclear if Briggs was driving, authorities said.

Illinois State Police officials said the 2007 Roadster, which had crashed into a light pole, was discovered around 3:15 a.m.

Police said it doesn't appear that anyone was injured in the crash. Whoever was behind the wheel could face misdemeanor charges.

"(The) registration comes back to Lance Briggs, however we don't know who was driving the car at the time,'' Master Sgt. Kyron St. Clair said.

Briggs contacted the Illinois State Police on Monday, and officers planned to meet with him later in the day, Master Sgt. Luis Gutierrez said. He said he did not have details about when or where the meeting would take place.

''He contacted us to discuss the whereabouts of his car,'' Gutierrez said.

Briggs, who has not addressed the media since reporting to training camp late last month, did not make himself available during Monday's open locker room period. But he did practice afterward.

Bears spokesman Scott Hagel declined to say if Briggs was in the vehicle when it crashed, and would not say anything else about the incident.

Briggs' agent, Drew Rosenhaus, was not available for comment, according to his brother Jason, who works for Rosenhaus Sports Representation. Jason Rosenhaus also declined comment.

Defensive end Adewale Ogunleye said Briggs told him about the crash on Monday morning.

''He said that he crashed the car or something, and I had had to get to meetings, so I didn't have a chance to talk to him,'' said Ogunleye, who wasn't sure if Briggs was driving.

Police said it doesn't appear that anyone was injured in the crash. Whoever was behind the wheel of the luxury Italian sports car could face misdemeanor charges for improper lane usage and leaving the scene of the accident, St. Clair said.

The Cook County state's attorney's office could not comment on the case. According to the Illinois Compiled Statutes, a driver's license can be suspended for leaving the scene of a non-injury accident that causes more than $1,000 in damage.

If no one was injured, the driver does not have to take a blood, breath or urine test to detect drugs or alcohol, according to the statutes.

St. Clair said the vehicle, which has a Kelley Blue Book value of more than $350,000, had not been reported stolen. The temporary license plate shows the car was purchased Aug. 3 in Texas.

''He's here and he's healthy, thank goodness,'' defensive end Alex Brown said. ''We can replace the car. We can't replace Lance. We're glad he's OK.''

News of the crash came on the same day Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick pleaded guilty to a dogfighting charge and two months after the Bears released defensive tackle Tank Johnson following numerous run-ins with the law.

And it follows a rocky offseason for Briggs, a Pro Bowl linebacker who helped Chicago reach the Super Bowl last season.

Upset that Bears slapped the franchise player tag on him, Briggs told the team to remove it or trade him. He also said he would sit out -- at first for the entire season and then for 10 games.

He eventually accepted the one-year, $7.2 million franchise tender offer in late July, and the team agreed not to apply the franchise tag in 2008.

''It's just fortunate that he was able to walk away,'' said cornerback Nathan Vasher, who also owns a Lamborghini. ''We don't know exactly what happened, so hopefully there'll be some more developments on that. I'm just glad to see him for practice.''

NFL suspends Hargrove for season after 3rd substance abuse violation

Associated Press

Updated: January 21, 2008, 4:37 PM ET



BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Buffalo Bills defensive end Anthony Hargrove was suspended without pay for all of next season Monday by the NFL after violating the league's substance abuse policy a third time.

The violation was Hargrove's second since August, when he was suspended without pay for the first four games of the regular season.

Hargrove

A third violation triggers an automatic one-year suspension, and Hargrove must apply to commissioner Roger Goodell for reinstatement.

The NFL did not disclose how Hargrove violated the policy. Violations can result from positive tests, failure to cooperate in the testing program or failing to comply with a treatment plan.

Hargrove's agent, Philip Williams, was out of the country and not immediately available for comment.

The Bills declined comment beyond issuing an NFL release announcing the suspension, which came three weeks after Buffalo (7-9) completed its season.

Though Hargrove has said he hoped to re-sign with the Bills, his future in Buffalo was already uncertain. He has completed his one-year contract and was eligible to become a free agent this offseason.

In 12 games last season, Hargrove finished with 46 tackles and 1½ sacks, and proved to be a capable backup behind starters Aaron Schobel and Chris Kelsay.

Outgoing and well-liked by his Bills teammates, Hargrove has been unable to stay out of trouble during a five-year NFL career, including the past two with Buffalo.

A week before he was suspended in August, Hargrove was involved in an altercation with police outside a Rochester nightclub during an off-day at Bills training camp in nearby Pittsford. That resulted in a $300 fine, and Hargrove was ordered to perform 200 hours of community service after pleading guilty to disorderly conduct.

Hargrove has said he regretted his actions.

The Bills acquired Hargrove, a 2004 third-round selection out of Georgia Tech, in a trade with St. Louis in October 2006, soon after he lost his starting job with the Rams for skipping two days of practice and meetings.



Stupid is as stupid does.

I've said it before but; How important is your high that you would be willing to throw your career away? AND, How stupid are you that you think you won't get caught? AND, What happened in your head that convinced you the rules don't apply to you?
