Baltimore Ravens are on the board- felony drug charges in Miami

Well there has been an arrest since the last update- it belongs to the always in contention- Baltimore Ravens.

Baltimore Ravens S Matt Elam

-Possession of controlled substance (felony)
-Possession of marijuana > 20 grams (felony)
-Possession of cannabis with intent to sell or deliver (felony)
-Reckless Driving (misdemeanor)

Mr. Elam was arrested in Miami on 2/25 saturday night on 3 felony drug charges and reckless driving. Police pulled the car over after he was driving erratically. The vehicle had a strong odor of marijuana and upon searching it the police allegedly had found a Gucci bag with 126 grams of marijuana, 6 oxycodone pills, about $950 in cash, a rolex, and a necklace. Also one of the passengers allegedly had a concealed pistol on him without a license. The Ravens are aware of this arrest and they have commented that Mr. Elam is not part of the plan for next year’s team. so it’s 7 points for 1st felony possession of marijuana, 3 points for capped felony possession with intent to distribute. 1 point for 3rd felony of controlled substance. 2 points for reckless driving. In an earlier update, I counted terroristic threats with assaults, so I am lumping in all drug charges together and will do so in the future. Bonus point for the send off, now he wasn’t technically cut but the team but they did say he gone, so it will be counted as such. 7 +3 +1 +2 +1 = 14 points for the Baltimore Ravens.

Well the Jets still lead with 16 points, but the Ravens are right behind with 14 points and a higher arrest tier, rounding out the board is the Chargers. Well 3 weeks into the off-season and we have 3 arrests, will this trend continue or will arrests go down like have been trending for the last couple off-seasons. Stay tuned to the fantasy crime league for all the crime updates!

Panthers RB Artis-Payne Arrested For Reckless Driving

Well NFL draft week is here, will your teams pick up a felon or two? or some other kind of bust in the first round? Rule clarification: all players drafted are on said team even though they are not signed, until the instance that they are cut by the team. There has been one arrest since the last update, the NFL went 36 days without an arrest! Guess they are all concentrating getting paid like Josh Norman. #KnowYourWorth

Carolina Panthers RB Artis-Payne
Reckless Driving (Misdemeanor)
Speeding (Misdemeanor)

http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/15355329/carolina-panthers-rb-cameron-artis-payne-arrested-speeding

On 4/24 Sunday morning at 1:30 am, Mr. Artis-Payne was arrested for reckless driving after going 102 mph in a 65 mph zone.  Drugs or alcohol were not involved and Mr.  Artis- Payne was described as being cooperative and bonded out for $5,000. 2 points for the Reckless Driving, although speeding is a misdemeanor,  there was no additional information to warrant the reckless driving other than the high speed. Therefore only 2 points will be awarded to the Super Bowl runner up Carolina Panthers.

The Current Standings include the  Los Angeles Rams remaining in 1st with 8 points, Denver Broncos and Indianapolis Colts are tied for 3rd with 4 points, The New Orleans Saints and Baltimore Ravens are tied for 5th with 3 points. The new addition to the board, Carolina Panthers are in 6th with 2 points. The Houston Texans round out the board in 7th with 1 point.

In other news that just won’t die, Tom Brady’s suspension for 4 games was reinstated by the courts. Everybody cheats in the NFL, not sure why the NFL and the Goodell bot have to try and  take it out on the Patriots, they never even proved they deflated the balls – “more probable than not” sounds inconclusive. The breaking the cell phone thing- it’s just how the rich and famous deal with their communication devices. The guy dubbed as the deflator was clearly referring to him trying to lose weight, its a pretty common saying right?
“It’s almost summer, I gotta get my PSI to under 30.”
Also Mr. Manziel has been indicted for a misdemeanor assault charge on his now ex-gf, he is not on a roster so no one gets points.

On March 18, early morning- Mr. Swann was pulled over in his Jag for speeding and reckless driving as he was clocked going 100 mph while passing another vehicle. He did have 2 guns in the car, but he had a conceal carry permit. Also drugs/alcohol were not believed to be involved.

Ravens, Texans, Rams are on the board. The LA Rams take the lead.

Hope everyone had a great weekend. A weekend of upsets- Diaz over McGregor, Tate over Holm, Lakers beating Warriors & confirmed yesterday, Lovie Smith is wearing orange and blue again- this time for the University of Illinois Fighting Illini. You know it’s March Baby. There has been 3 arrests since the last update, let’s get into them.

Houston Texans WR Jaelen Strong

-Arrested for Possession of Marijuana (Released pending charges by the County DA, felony?)

http://www.azcentral.com/story/sports/nfl/2016/02/29/former-asu-wr-jaelen-strong-arrested-drug-charges/81125666/

On 2/28 Sunday night, Jaelen Strong was arrested for possession of marijuana. Mr. Strong was in a Maserati being driven by Green Bay Packers DB, Damarious Randall that was pulled over for missing a license plate. In the video, the officers ask the occupants about if they had a medical marijuana card, all reply no, so while being searched, Strong later gives the officers 3 marijuana cigarettes.
Mr Randall and another occupant were not charged. Mr Strong was booked and later released pending charges by the county DA. I have reached out to the Scottsdale PD and they have confirmed as such. The Houston Texans are aware of the incident and are disappointed with his actions. Since he was arrested, I am awarding a point, with possibly 6 points pending if he does indeed get charged with a felony. Looking at Arizona regulations, possession of marijuana under 2 pounds is a felony, who knew that marijuana laws were so tough in AZ?

Baltimore Ravens LB Terrell Suggs
-Leaving the Scene of an Accident (Misdemeanor)
-Driving with a suspended license (Misdemeanor)

http://6abc.com/sports/terrell-suggs-briefly-detained-after-one-car-accident/1230857/

Mr. Suggs was involved in a single car collision, and was arrested by the Scottsdale PD on 3/4 in the early morning for leaving the scene of an accident and driving with a suspended license. His beemer was found in a parking lot with damage after responding to an accident call and following a trail of fluid. T Sizzle tweeted about the incident that day and the Baltimore Ravens were informed about it as well. 1 point for driving with suspended license and 2 points for leaving the scene of an accident. 3 points total. Memo to NFL Players, try to avoid driving around the Scottsdale, AZ area.

Los Angeles Rams RB Tre Mason
-Possession of marijuana, 20 grams or less (Misdemeanor)
-Reckless driving(Misdemeanor)
-Resisting an officer without violence (Misdemeanor)
-Failure to register motor vehicle (Misdemeanor, maybe)

http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/14915501/los-angeles-rams-rb-tre-mason-tasered-arrested-florida
http://www.clerk-17th-flcourts.org/Web2/CaseSearch/Details/?caseid=ODQ0NjYyNA%3d%3d-qebGNxuUdg8%3d&caseNum=16002165MM10A&category=CR

On Saturday afternoon, 3/5, in Florida, Tre Mason was stopped by police after driving 70 mph in a 35 mph zone. The police did smell marijuana in the vehicle as well. Mr. Mason was uncooperative and after several warnings was tazed twice before being arrested. He was also found to allegedly be in possession of 12 grams of marijuana. After being put in custody, he was taken to a hospital. The Rams released a statement that they are disappointed to hear about the incident and are gathering information about it. 3 points for the wacky tobacky, 2 points for reckless driving, 2 points for resisting arrest, and 1 bonus point for being tazed twice! We have reached out to the Hollywood, FL Police Department regarding the criminal status for failure to register a motor vehicle, so that is pending. According to the statutes it’s only a misdemeanor if the tags are > 6 months expired and it’s not the first instance, so since we can’t confirm it right now it does not score. 8 points total.

One month into the off-season, the Los Angeles Rams haven’t seen the field yet in LA this season, but they are in first place with 8 points, the Denver Broncos and Indianapolis Colts are in a tie for 3rd, the Baltimore Ravens are in 4th place with 3 points and the Houston Texans are in 5th place with 1 point, but could easily jump in the standings if Mr. Strong were to indeed get charged.

The 2015 NFL league year ends at 4 pm EST on March 9, that means all 2015 player contracts have expired. After that, the 2016 league year is officially in full swing. It looks like time is a ticking for Johnny Football being charged for the Cleveland Browns.
