And this is news how? He's not the person who commited the crime and I'm certain their were dozens of other people in the bar. Much ado about nothing. Slow day TMZ?

Smoking pot? Your a little to in to the Miley Cyrus story buddy sorry this is NFL news. Ya maybe they should've been home resting but it's pretty common for teammates to go celebrate a win by having a few drinks together this has gone on forever, I remember having pizza with my soccor team when I was 5! I guess you just were never involved in any TEAM activities probably why your making stuff up on internet blogs today. GET A LIFE!!!! GO CHARGERS

Since this is an NFL post, all I can say is GO GREEN BAY PACKERS ! ! ! also the Chargers are becoming the Bengals of the west in terms of law enforcement entanglement.

Miley was smoking Salvia, not pot...and NFL players love them some weed. Other than that, this is a total non-story. Shaun Phillips was at the same bar a fight broke out? Whooooooo. Do you know anything about the location where this bar is? Let's put it this way. Police set up a substation right by all of these bars because the patrons are 100% out of control. Any guy with black knee socks, ****ies, and a metal mullisha hat is going to be starting fights on any given night down there because it's totally d-bag central.

@Geoff you an idiot!!! Why because they were at a bar when a fight broke out?? So next time there is a fight at anywhere everyone there should be in jail?

@NDNchief: Are you serious? The Bengals? Cinci doesnt know how to handle their player's situations off the field. When Kevin Ellison got popped with vicodin his ass got booted out of SD. But the bengals have had numerous player conduct issues and they continue to keep them around. Plus this bar thing is a non-issue, they just witnessed a fight WOW ! @Geoff your the one smokin pot.

first off every team has problems. Chargers bar fights and DUIs are minimal compared to other teams. Yes these guys should be at home being its a short week. Norv needs to crack down big time. As for the comment about "If the Chargers organization has any class those two will not play on Thursday" Thats stupid!!!! you have no clue if they actually did something or just there when I fight broke out. It was unfair for SDPD to associate with this because a witness stated seeing them in the bar. If it comes down to it and they where unfortunately a part of it.....then it will get handled.
