NY Giants and Oakland Raiders score FCL points for assault/battery in different circumstances.

Today is the solar eclipse hope you got some legit solar glasses for viewing. It’s good to take risks sometimes, but don’t gamble with your eyesight!
There have been 2 arrests since the last update. Let’s get into them.

Oakland Raiders CB Sean Smith

-Assault by means of force likely to cause great bodily injury (felony)
-Battery with serious bodily injury (felony)

On August 17, Mr. Smith was charged with 2 felonies, assault and battery stemming from a July 4 incident in Pasadena where he allegedly beat and stomped on the head of his sister’s boyfriend.
The Raiders are aware of the arrest and head coach Jack Del Rio said that his player was defending his sister. Since it was only one alleged victim, I am capping the charges 4+2+1 bonus point for the more than likely, very aggressive but probably warranted anti domestic violence stance. 7 points for the Oakland Raiders.

New York Giants OL Michael Bowie

-Domestic Assault and Battery (Felony)
– Malicious injury or destruction of property less than $1000 (Misdemeanor)

On August 19th, there was a warrant out for the arrest of Mr. Bowie as he was charged with Domestic Violence and 2 counts of destruction of property. The incident is from earlier this summer where he got into an argument with his girlfriend and allegedly grabbed her by the neck and threw her down and also breaking 2 televisions and punching a hole in a wall. According to Tulsa News, it apparently started over finances, but got phyisical when she made a remark about his mother.  The Giants are aware of the arrest  and he did not travel with the team for their preseason game, also they have brought this to the attention of the NFL. 4 points for the felony domestic abuse, 2 points for first property damage and 1 point for 2nd property damage charge. 1 bonus point for the DV charge. 8 points for the New York Giants.
The Jets remain in 1st with 24 points. The Colts are in 2nd with 16 points. The Ravens round out the top 3 with 14 points. The Cowboys remain in 4th place with 14 points due to tiebreaker. The Giants are in 5th place with 11 points. The 49ers are in 6th with 8 points. The Oakland Raiders are on the board in 7th place with 7 points, holding tiebreaker over the Houston Texans who are in 8th place with 7 points,  and they hold tiebreaker over the Packers who are in 9th with also 7 points. The Jaguars are in 10th place with 6 points hold tiebreaker over Seahawks in 11th with also 6 points. The Bears and Broncos are tied for 13th place with 5 points. The Bills are in 14th with 4 points.

Jets in holding pattern at 1st place, Vikings on the board, 49ers & Packers jump in standings.

Well folks, there have been 2 arrests, 1 formally charged, and 1 violating house arrest since the last update. We are getting into the home stretch of Fantasy Crime, weather is nice, training camps are a couple of weeks out, etc. Let’s get into them.

Green Bay Packers DL Letroy Guion

Early morning June 21, Mr. Guion was arrested in Hawaii for DUI after failing a breathalyzer. He has had previous run ins with the law and is currently suspended for 1st 4 games due to violating the NFL PED policy. Now he can say aloha to the personal conduct policy as well. 3 points for the DUI, 1 bonus point for it being his 30th birthday. I did hear from a Packer fan that he was snappin and having all these social media posts about partying haha. Do they not have taxi’s or ubers in Hawaii? Remember when the actors of ABC’s hit television show LOST got the axe after their DUI’s? Wonder if that will hold true here as well. 4 points for the Green Bay Packers.

New York Jets LB Lorenzo Mauldin
Assault (Misdmeanor)
Stemming from an incident at a nightclub on April 2, Mr. Mauldin was arrested after turning himself in on June 21 for misdemeanor assault. He allegedly punched another man after he accidentally spilled champagne on him. The victim had several facial injuries. Mr. Mauldin maintains his innocence and says it was someone else who attacked that man. 3 points for the Jets. J-E-T-S.

Former San Francisco 49ers CB Tramaine Brock **Arrested as 49er, charged as FA. still counts**
-Child Endangerment (Misdemeanor)
-Domestic Violence (Felony)
So from his April arrest that led to his release from the niners, earlier this month- Mr. Brock was formally charged with domestic violence and child endangerment. Allegedly there were multiple incidents where he punched/ attempted to strangle his girlfriend over disputes such as what to watch on television. One of these incidents involves the child, where she was holding their own kid in her arms. So the total points are 4 for felony domestic violence, 3 for child endangerment (counting it as putting someone directly in danger) +1 bonus point for domestic violence. 8 points total. I had awarded 2 points previously for this so it is 6 net points for the 49ers.

Minnesota Vikings WR Michael Floyd
-Violated house arrest terms
On 6/26, Mr. Floyd went to court as a result of failed breathalyzer tests while under house arrest. He maintained that it was because of kombucha tea, which was also encouraged by his employer- the Minnesota Vikings, who stood by their reciever. He was sentenced to 1 day in jail and had to serve the remaining 5 house arrest days in Arizona. 1 point for the Vikings.

Well the Jets remain in 1st place with 24 points. The Colts are 2nd place with 16 points. The Ravens are in 3rd place with 14 points. The 49ers jump to 4th place with 8 points. The Packers are right behind in 5th place with 7 points.  The Seahawks are 6th place with 6 points. Da Bears are tied in 8th place with the Denver Broncos, both with 5 points each. The Cowboys are in 9th place with 4 points. The Panthers and Giants are tied in 11th place with 3 points, as both have the arrest tier tiebreaker over the Redskins who are in 12th place. In 13th place are the Chargers with 2 points, holding the tiebreaker over the Cardinals  who are in 14th place. The Chiefs are in 15th place with also 2 points, as they are behind on the other tiebreaker ( less # of arrests). Lastly, rounding out the board tied for 17th place are the  Rams and Vikings both with 1 point. Summer is officially here and  a holiday weekend is upon us- the 4th of July. Please celebrate our country’s star spangled awesomeness safely.  Have a great rest of the week and be sure to get all the latest fantasy crime news right here. Take care.

Carolina Panthers get on the board with an assault citation in smashville.

Well, the NFL draft has come and gone, did you team pick up a future FCL all star? Much like NFL success, only time will tell. Not much activity in the FCL world, there has been 1 citation since the last update. I thought maybe 49ers GM John Lynch being investigated for ROBBERY of da bears, but it is not robbery if it was agreed to.

Carolina Panthers OL Michael Oher
-Assault(misdemeanor)

Last month, April 14, Mr. Oher was cited for assault after an incident involving an uber ride in Nashville where Mr. Oher allegedly knocked the uber driver to the ground and kicked him. He was later restrained by the other passengers. He has a notice to appear in court in Davidson County on May 8, today. The Panthers are aware of the arrest and had no further comment. This behavior seems to be out of character of Mr. Oher and the team was caught very off guard by the news, you might even say that they were blindsided by it. 3 points for the Carolina Panthers.

Well the Jets and Colts remain tied for 1st place with 16 points each on 1 arrest. The Ravens are in 3rd place with 12 points. SThe eahawks are in 4th place with 5 points and hold the tiebreaker over the Bears with also 5 points due to the higher arrest tier charge. Tied for 7th place are the Packers and Panthers with 3 points. In 8th place are the Chargers with 2 points. Tied for 10th place with 1 point each are the Rams and Chiefs.

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)

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.

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.

The Detriot Lions get on the board in a big way. NFC North on top!

There has been 1 confirmed arrest since the last update, and surprisingly it belongs to the Detroit Lions, who have their first alleged criminal activity of the Jim Caldwell era, that’s nearly 15 months without an arrest!

Former Detroit Lions OL Rodney Austin
-Assault on a Female (Misdemeanor)
-Assault on a child < age 12 (Misdemeanor)
-Misdemeanor Larceny
-Interfering with emergency communication (Misdemeanor)

http://detroit.cbslocal.com/2015/04/21/lions-release-guard-rodney-austin/

Mr. Austin turned himself into the authorities on Friday 4/17/15 after the alleged victim went to the Mecklenburg County Magistrate’s Office and obtained a warrant for the arrest of Mr. Austin the day before (In North Carolina, this is permissible under the law). The incident which sparked the warrant was on Sunday 4/5/15 when Mr. Austin allegedly pushed the mother of his child down while she was holding their kid and then took her cell phone to forbid her from calling the authorities. When the police did arrive, they found no signs of injury and did not arrest Mr. Austin at the time.

Yes. Mr. Austin has spent much of his time with the Lions on the practice squad, but he was on the roster at the time of the arrest. (In fact, he may even come back to the team when this legal case gets resolved http://detroit.cbslocal.com/2015/04/24/mayhew-confirms-rodney-austin-could-return-to-lions-after-domestic-violence-case-resolved/)

3 points each for both assault charges, 2 points for misdemeanor larceny for taking the cell phone , 2 points for interfering with emergency communication (indirectly putting people in danger). 1 bonus point for another NFL domestic violence incident. 11 points total.

The Lions remove their division rival Packers from the top spot on the fantasy crime leader board. They have 11 points and are in 1st place. The Packers remain in 2nd with 10 points. The Ravens are in 3rd place with 9 points. The Colts and 49ers are in 4th and 5th place with 6 and 4 points respectively. Tied for 7th place are the Cowboys and Cardinals with a field goal. The Saints and Steelers round out 8th and 9th place. The rest of the league has no points. The NFC North holds the top 2 spots and accounts for nearly 43% of the total FCL points. The NFC and AFC are similar in arrests, (6 vs 5 respectively), but the NFC averages 2 points more per arrest and has 66% of the total FCL points.

Well it’s a big sports week, with the NFL draft starting on Thursday, where we will all be getting new players on our FCL rosters. As of now before the draft, without any trades: the Seahawks have 11 picks, while the Bills, Bears, Lions, Dolphins, Jets, Rams, & Chargers all have 6 picks each.

For clarification: any team that drafts a player has his rights until the moment said player signs with another team and/or is cut. This is for easiness in that the rules don’t stipulate that a player must sign with the team that drafted him to count as being on the roster. Aside from the draft, the NHL/NBA playoffs are in full swing, the Kentucky Derby, & of course the Mayweather vs Pacquiao fight. Will any NFL big shots be in Vegas for the fight? Will Wes Welker say hi to molly and pass out benji’s at the derby again? Only time will tell, May 2 can’t get here soon enough…
