It is kinda sad that these fellas can't put on their costumes and go play their games for all the fans.

Typical behavior. The 19th. player to be arrested since the lockout. They don't call it the National Felons League for nothing.

professional sports at it's best.
If he wasn't playing football he would be like so many of them---- not playing sports they would be selling drugs and hookers.

Mug shot seems to reveal that he is truly remorseful. ;-)

Doesn't appear to be any consequence for him to worry about - just another problem he can toss money at.

I'm always flabbergasted at people who smile in their mugshots. Unless you just got popped for public intoxication and your sh*twasted, I'm totally missing the humor.
