Well folks, the fantasy crime league usually experiences some activity over long weekends, but Presidents’ Day weekend is definitely not anywhere near the top. Memorial Day weekend and 4th of July weekend are the big ones to watch out for. As the weather heats up, so does the crime league. There was 1 citation from earlier in the month, and 1 detainment yesterday.
Indianapolis Colts RB Ahmad Bradshaw
-Possession of Marijuana (Misdemeanor)
Mr. Bradshaw was pulled over and cited for possession of marijuana on Feb 5. He has pleaded not guilty. He probably has enough green to fight this charge over a small amount of green. The Colts are hot out of the gate with a drug charge and assault charge. Not to mention another player who has got charged with rape, battery, and criminal confinement during the week of the AFC Championship. Last off-season the Colts owner, Jim Irsay had a league-high tying arrest with 23 points (4 felony drug charges, 1 DUI, 1 owner bonus point) and his team is surely trying to step up to his level this off-season. 3 points total for the misdemeanor drug charge.
1 Detainment- (was previously stated as arrested on some news outlets)
Philadelphia Eagles S Nate Allen
-Accusation of Indecent Exposure (still under investigation, has not been charged)
Well folks, this is a fantasy crime league first, Mr. Allen was detained, but was reported as arrested. He was taken into custody. He spent 4+ hours in custody after he was pulled over from a report that he was performing a lewd act in front of 2 teenage girls at an intersection on 2/16. He has not been charged but the investigation is ongoing. The FantasyCrimeLeague.com sincerely hopes that this incident, if found to be a false accusation, doesn’t tarnish this man’s reputation in any way. Are there any criminal lawyers out there? Is there a time limit on detainment vs arrests? The twitter account for Fort Myers PD says he was only detained so that is what we are going with, 0 points.
Barely into the 3rd week, the Packers lead the fantasy crime league with 10 points, the Colts are in 2nd with 6 points and the Cowboys are on the board with a field goal at 3 points.
