Giants Running Back Behind Bars

6/19/2008 3:38 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

NY Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw has been cooling his heels in a Virginia jail since Sunday for a probation violation.

A jail spokesperson told the Bristol Herald Courier that Bradshaw "voluntarily came into jail" because of a court order and "wasn't brought in by police officers and stuff."

We're told the probation violation comes stems from an arrest from when he was a juvenile -- and that file is sealed.

In a statement, the Giants said: "We are aware of the situation and have been in contact with Ahmad's legal representative. This situation is not the result of any recent incident. It stems from an issue that occurred prior to Ahmad being drafted by the Giants. Beyond that, we have no further comment."

UPDATE: His lawyer tells TMZ Bradshaw is serving 30 days for a probation violaton, adding Bradshaw "has not been charged with any offense since being drafted by the New York Giants and is eager to put this matter behind him and begin training for next season."

I laugh at other's misfortunes    

Just make sure he's out by training camp. His "profession" is much more important than incarceration. You ALWAYS schedule jail time AFTER the season is over.

He has a HUGE neck (as they all football players do), and i wish we would all quit with the race related comments. The color of our skin is just the color of our skin, i believe that we humans are more than that. But that's just me........

Mr. Bradshaw might benefit from hiring a public relations person who could coach him on how to not look like a recalcitrant bad ass when posing for mug shots. A good therapist might also be a wise addition to Team Bradshaw, one who might encourage Mr. Bradshaw to understand the down side of wearing that smug expression of entitlement. Professional management of Mr. Bradshaw's career is at a critical point in time. Without proper support, he might easily swerve the way of recently fired Bear RB Cedric Benson.

What a shocker another athlete arrested. I'm sorry, when did it become cool to go to jail? Nothing will happen to him just like all the other criminals in the sports world. As long as they are making the sports money, athletes and celebrities will continue to clog the justice system like it was the "in" thing to do.

Do you think celebrities and athletes put there arrests in their resume??

These sports stars get paid a lot of money, but it still doesn't buy them any class. I am so tired of reading about this. I absolutely hate for my son to look up to these loosers as a role model.
