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.

NY Jets ascend to take sole possession of 1st Place. KC Chiefs get an indictment point.

Since the last update, there has been 1 arrest and 1 indictment that doesnt count unfortunately. Let’s get into it.

New York Jets WR Robby Anderson
-Obstruction of Justice (Misdemeanor Miami Ordinance)
-Resisting Arrest with Violence (Felony)

http://www.nj.com/jets/index.ssf/2017/05/cop_who_arrested_jets_robby_anderson_has_checkered.html

On Sunday May 7, Mr. Anderson was arrested at the Rolling Loud Music Festival for allegedly fighting with security after being asked to leave. The cop who arrested Mr. Anderson, has had previous run-ins with NFLers and been accused of using excessive force. Mr. Anderson was charged with Resisting arrest with violence and obstruction of a police officer.
4 points for the felony resisting, 1 point capped for obstruction as it is in the same realm. Despite being at the Rolling Loud Festival he was not found to have any molly or loud on him, so that’s a positive at least. 5 points for the J-E-T-E Jets jets jets.

Now Free Agent LB Khaseem Greene
-Unlawful Gun Possession

http://www.nj.com/union/index.ssf/2017/05/nfl_player_indicted_for_role_in_elizabeth_shooting.html#incart_2box_nj-homepage-featured

Okay, so a former KC Chiefs player – Khaseem Greene (Also a 2013 bears draft pick and Schiano man as well!) was indicted on unlawful gun possession on May 9th, stemming from a December 2016 NJ shooting, and he was released by the team after. However, Mr. Greene was initially charged with same offense on January 4th, 2017. So looking at the NJ Criminal Procedure website and speaking with the reporter who has read the court documentation, it seems that this is the same charge, but has made it’s way down the process further while he was on the Chiefs roster. I believe the indictment came down after the co-defendant testified that Mr. Greene did give him said gun. Also only felonious type offenses are indictable, and this is one of them. So he was charged in January as a Free Agent and before the FCL season, but the DA brought the case to a grand jury during the FCL season, as a KC Chief to further process the charge.

So unfortunately, I will not be awarding the full points, but rather just 1 indictment point, similar to an arrest that doesn’t result in a charge. I am not an attorney, but I have reached out to lawyers/legal experts and their recommendations were in line with this thinking.

Well the Jets are now in sole possession of 1st place with 21 points. The Colts fall to 2nd place with 16 points. The Ravens are in 3rd place with 12 points. The Seahawks are in 4th place with 5 points and hold the tiebreaker over the Bears in 5th place with also 5 points due to the higher arrest tier charge. Tied for 7th place are the Packers and Panthers each with 3 points. In 8th place are the Chargers with 2 points. The Chiefs are in 9th place with also 2 points. In 10th place, on the board with 1 point is the Rams. It is Memorial Day weekend coming up, which means honoring our fallen servicemen and women and it is the unofficial start of summer. There typically is some FCL action over the long weekend, so please take care everyone let’s leave the alleged criminal activity to the league.
