Well folks, its been nearly a month since the last update and surprisingly there was no NFL arrests over the 4th of July weekend and it does seem that no one has lost any limbs or digits. There was one arrest and one formally charged since then. Let’s get into them.
Jacksonville Jaguars LB Dan Skuta
-First Degree Battery (Misdemeanor)
Mr. Skuta was arrested early morning on June 19 for first degree battery in Orlando where he allegedly pushed a woman in the face with an open hand and she hit her head on a window. The incident was after the two were flirting and Skuta asked for her number and she refused to provide said number. 3 points for the battery charge and 1 bonus point for don’t call me maybe. 4 points total for the Jags.
Also in other Jags news, QB Denard Robinson was found by authorities napping it out in his car with a female companion while it was partly submerged in a pond. No charges or citations were filed.
Seattle Seahawks QB Trevone Boykin
-Assault causing bodily harm (Misdemeanor)
Mr. Boykin was arrested in 2015 while his team, TCU was preparing for the Alamo Bowl in San Antonio. He was initially charged with assaulting a public servant (a 3rd degree felony), public intoxication and resisting arrest. He got suspended and missed the game, but now he was just formally charged with assault causing bodily harm on June 29, 2016. so thats 3 points and 1 bonus for the charges taking >6 months to come out. Mr. Boykin has pleaded no contest and received 1 year of probation, must be nice. 4 points total for the Seattle Seahawks.
Well the LA Rams still lead with 11 points, and the Denver Broncos are in 2nd with 6 points. There is now a 3 way tie for 5th, with the Indianapolis Colts, Seattle Seahawks, and Jacksonville Jaguars all with 4 points. The Baltimore Ravens and New Orleans Saints are tied for 7th with 3 points each. The Carolina Panthers drop to 8th place with 2 points and the Houston Texans are on the board with 1 point in 9th place. There has been a dropoff in arrests this off-season, but we will continue to monitor them for you. Training camp and preseason football is just around the corner.
