Chris Culliver Arrested
San Francisco 49ers cornerback Chris Culliver made a horrible situation way worse when he allegedly drove into a bicyclist ... threatened a witness with brass knuckles, and then fled the scene -- all of which landed him in jail.

San Jose police say Culliver hit the bicycle rider shortly after 10 AM today, but when he drove away from the scene a witness followed him and eventually cornered Culliver.

Police say the Niner was brandishing brass knuckles when he got out of his vehicle to confront the witness -- but eventually got back in his car without incident ... and fled again!

Cops eventually caught up to Culliver and arrested him. He was booked for felony hit-and-run, weapons possession, and reckless driving.

The cyclist was treated at a hospital for minor injuries.

Culliver is the same guy who made headlines 2 years ago when he said he wouldn't welcome gay players in the locker room.

Fine upstanding young man. Is such a good Christian that he does not want the wicked gays but does not have a problem running innocent folks down and then attempting to assault them. Yeah this really is a good guy. Sarcasm noted for the moronic. What he really is, is a coward who talks a bunch but when in an actual situation he ran way like the pussie coward he is.

Hit & run, reckless driving, and brass knuckles' charges. I think 3 points (putting 49ers into second place in the Crime Rankings), what do you think? Vote here:
