Jaguars are on the board, Cowboys add a point, but lose out on Lucky points.

Well all NFL Training Camps are open. We are getting closer to the end of the fantasy crime off-season. There has been 1 arrest and 1 misdemeanor conviction uncovered since the last update.

The Dallas Cowboys released WR Lucky Whitehead but it was also later confirmed that the police did not arrest him, but rather someone who looked like him and gave all his information. Since he was never charnged, there will be no points awarded. Mr. Whitehead has found work in New York, so for once this season, you could say that the Jets got lucky.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott
-Speeding (MisdemeanorYes it is)

https://www.dallasnews.com/news/frisco/2017/07/17/cowboys-elliott-appealing-conviction-speeding-100-mph-tollway-frisco?f=r&_ga=2.56618539.1878768639.1500385490-811563037.1491575546

In April 2017, Mr. Elliot was caught speeding in Frisco, TX going 100 in a 70, he plead guilty. Case closed, in fact- I wasn’t aware of said speeding misdemeanor until he appealed it. This was likely due to his investigation of the Dallas club assault (later dropped due to lack of cooperation) and the NFL is wraping up the investigation into him as well. Well, it is a misdemeanor in Texas, so it counts. 1 point for the Cowboys.

Jacksonville Jaguars DL Dante Fowler Jr.

Battery (Misdemeanor)
Criminal Mischief (Misdemeanor)

https://www.si.com/nfl/2017/07/19/jacksonville-jaguars-dante-fowler-arrested

On July 18th, Mr. Fowler was arrested in St. Petersburg, FL after an incident where he allegedly hit another man, broke his glasses, and than threw his groceries into a lake. This was after the victim spoke about Mr. Fowler’s driving. Mr. Fowler was charged with battery and criminal mischief, he bonded out the next day. The Jaguars are aware of the arrest and gathering details. 3 points for battery, 2 points for criminal mischief (crime against property) and 1 bonus point because of the hilarity of this arrest. 6 points for the Jacksonville Jaguars.

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 49ers are in 5th with 8 points. The Houston Texans are in 6th place with 7 points, hold tiebreaker over the Packers who are in 7th with 7 points. The Jaguars are in 8th place with 6 points hold tiebreaker over Seahawk in 9th with also 6 points. The Bears and Broncos are tied for 11th place with 5 points. The Bills are in 12th with 4 points. The Panthers and Giants are tied for 14th with 3 points and hold tiebreaker over Redskins in 15th with 3 also. In 16th place is the Chargers with 2 points, who hold tiebreaker over Cardinals in 17th place. In 18th place is the Chiefs with also 2 points. Rounding out those on the board in 21st place are the Rams, Steelers, and Vikings, with 1 point apiece.

Will Kaepernick be signed this week? The Ravens owner has asked for our prayers as they make this extremely tough decision, while your favorite QB’s favorite QB is out with a injury. After carrying the Ravens on his back for the last 9 years, it had to give out sometime, no matter how elite it is. Be sure to get all the latest Fantasy Crime news right here. Take care.

Cowboys jump to 4th place with an agg assault. Bills are on the board with a gun charge.

Since the last update, there have been 2 arrests. I have not heard of any NFLers getting their digits blown off, so thats a good thing. Hope you all had a great time celebrating the greatness that is the good ol’ US of A.
Let’s get into the arrests.

Dallas Cowboys LB Damien Wilson
-(2 counts) Aggravated Assault with a deadly weapon (Felony)

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000818311/article/cowboys-lb-damien-wilson-arrested-on-assault-charges

Mr. Wilson was arrested on 2 counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon on July 4th at a Freedom Fest event in Frisco, TX. He allegedly backed his truck into a woman while parking and then flaunted his rifle at a man. He was later released from custody after posting the 20 grand for bail. The Cowboys are aware of the arrest and have no comment. So 4 points each for the aggravated assaults- I am counting them as separate because the truck and the firearm are different. 1 bonus point for the date/location- freedom fest and it’s when we celebrate our independence day! 9 points total for America’s team.

Buffalo Bills DT Adolphus Washington
-Improperly Carrying a Concealed Weapon(Misdemeanor)

http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2720907-bills-adolphus-washington-arrested-on-weapons-charge-after-showing-gun-to-cops
http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000819117/article/adolphus-washington-arrested-on-weapons-charge?campaign=twitter_atn

On Sunday night, 7/9- Mr. Washington was arrested at a Cincinnati waterpark after he reached for and displayed his firearm in his vehicle right in front of the police. He does have a valid state CCW permit, but he was in violation of it with his alleged actions. He was processed and later released. Mr. Washington is due back in court on July 24. That’s 3 points for the misdemeanor weapons charge and 1 bonus point for the stupidity. 4 for the Bills.

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 rise to 4th place with 13 points. The 49ers are in 5th with 8 points. The Packers are in 6th with 7 points. Seahawks are in 7th with 6 points. The Bears and Broncos are tied for 9th place with 5 points. The Bills are on the board in 10th with 4 points. The Panthers and Giants are tied for 12th with 3 points and hold tiebreaker over Redskins in 13th with 3 also. In 14th place is the Chargers with 2 points, who hold tiebreaker over Cardinals in 15th place. In 16th place is the Chiefs with also 2 points. Rounding out those on the board are the Rams and Vikings, with 1 point apiece. All divisions in the NFL have at least an arrest and the AFC East leads the rest with 28 points. Training camps are fast approaching, last couple weeks of total freedom for NFL players and personnel. Be sure to get the latest fantasy crime news right here. Take care everybody.

Cowboys are on the board with CB Carroll arrest for DWI

Hope you all are enjoying the short work week. There was 1 arrest since the last update. It belongs to America’s Team, the Dallas Cowboys.

Dallas Cowboys CB Nolan Carroll
-DWI (misdemeanor)

https://www.dallasnews.com/news/crime/2017/05/29/cowboys-cornerback-nolan-carroll-arrested-dwi-charge

On May 29 at 2:15 am, Mr. Carroll was arrested in Dallas following a traffic stop for DWI. Earlier that night, there was a welcome to Dallas party for Carroll at a nearby Dallas Nightclub- Sidebar, but police would not confirm if he was there prior to getting arrested. Mr. Carroll signed a 3 year deal earlier this year in March. The Cowboys do offer their players free uber rides, if they believe they are unable to drive safely. 3 points for the DUI, 1 bonus point for having it on the night of his “Welcome to Dallas” party. (The club’s IG post has been taken down haha) 4 points total for dem boys.

Jets remain in 1st place with 21 points. The Colts are 2nd place with 16 points. The Ravens are in 3rd place with 12 points. The Seahawks are 4th place with 6 points. Da Bears are in 5th place with 5 points. The Cowboys are in 6th place with 4 points. The Panthers are in 7th place with 3 points, have the arrest tier tiebreaker over the Packers and Redskins who are both in 9th place. In 10th place are the Chargers with 2 points, holding the tiebreaker over the Cardinals and 49ers, who are tied for 12th place. The Chiefs are in 13th place with also 2 points, as they are behind on the other tiebreaker ( less # of arrests). Lastly, rounding out the board in 14th place with 1 point is the Rams.

Only halfweek through the 1st week & there’s been plenty of action!

Well folks, it sure looks like the NFL’s VP of public relations is going to have another busy off-season.

There have been 4 NFL player arrests this week, 5 if you count alumni.

Let’s start out with the near miss:

Former Baltimore Raven DT Terrance Cody has been indicted for:

  • Two counts of aggravated animal cruelty. (Felony)
  • Five counts of animal abuse or neglect involving a dog. (Misdemeanor)
  • One count of illegal possession of an alligator. (Misdemeanor)
  • Five counts of animal abuse or neglect involving an alligator. (Misdemeanor)
  • One count of possession with intent to use drug paraphernalia. (Misdemeanor)
  • One count of possession of marijuana. (Misdemeanor)

http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/12268940/terrence-cody-formerly-baltimore-ravens-indicted-animal-abuse

Earlier last month, it was reported that Mr. Cody would be released by the Ravens, it should be noted that he was set to become a free agent. The reason for the otherwise unusual release announcement would be that he was under investigation for animal cruelty. The Ravens probably needed to do this ahead of time after last year’s league leading 5 offseason arrests, including the Ray Rice fiasco.  What could be greater than golf with a gator? Apparently it sounds like Mr. Cody was trying to find out.  He was indicted on February 2, 2015, which also was the same day he was released.  Due to the fact that Mr. Cody was released before he was indicted, none of these alleged crimes will count towards the Fantasy Crime League.

These 3 arrests do count for inclusion in the Fantasy Crime League.

Green Bay Packers DT Leroy Guion

  • Possession of Marijuana (Felony)
  • Possession of a firearm (Felony)

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000468230/article/letroy-guion-arrested-on-multiple-felony-charges

Mr. Guion was arrested in Florida, Tuesday night, 2/3, after being pulled over. He was found to have 190 grand in cash, 357 grams of marijuana and a handgun. The Green Bay Packers typically do not make a splash in free agency as they also do in the fantasy crime league, but it looks like Mr. Guion should have (discount) double checked his stash and cash, because in Florida- felony possession is 20 grams and up, according to NORML.org. The felony drug charge and felony gun charge are 5 points a piece, 10 points total for the Green Bay Packers.

Dallas Cowboys RB Joseph Randle

  • Unlawful Possession of Marijuana (Misdemeanor)

http://espn.go.com/dallas/nfl/story/_/id/12278392/dallas-cowboys-running-back-joseph-randle-arrested-again

Well it seems that Mr. Randle has found himself within the long arm of the law again. Last time, he was arrested for shoplifting underwear and cologne. Early Tuesday morning, 2/3, Mr. Randle was arrested for unlawful possession of marijuana in Kansas after police responded to a domestic disturbance with a weapon call which led them to his hotel room.  There’s has been no confirmation on where the alleged marijuana was found, but we could imagine the police checked the underwear drawer first. 3 points for the misdemeanor drug charge.

Indianapolis Colts LB D’Qwell Jackson

  • Assault (Misdemeanor)

http://www.wjla.com/articles/2015/02/-indianapolis-colts-linebacker-d-qwell-jackson-who-allegedly-sparked-deflategate-arrested-for-assaul.html

Mr. Jackson is the player who assisted in setting off  the #Deflategate / #Ballghazi story by intercepting Tom Brady in that AFC championship beatdown. He was arrested Tuesday night 2/3, for allegedly punching a pizza delivery driver after disputing a parking spot. “It’s not assault, it’s your face meeting an NFL player’s fist” 3 points for the misdemeanor assault charge.

Well folks, all this happened through Tuesday, let’s see if we can get through 24 hours without an NFL arrest. Either way, surely we will keep you all updated here at the Fantasy Crime League.
