Missed April Arrests- 49ers/Redskins/Cardinals/Seahawks

After doing some internal review, just realized that last month, the arrests of the San Francisco 49ers,Washington Redskins, Arizona Cardinals, and Seattle Seahawks were inadvertently left off during the month of April. We apologize for the error. Let’s review.

Seattle Seahawks QB Trevone Boykin
-Violation of Probation

Seahawks QB Trevone Boykin arrested on warrant for probation violation

From the last arrest where Mr. Boykin was a passenger in a car that hit a bar, his reputation he continues to mar. I saw this one coming from afar, he violated his probation- so he was arrested on a warrant.
This is a separate crime. One point for the violation which is one point total for the Seattle Seahawks.

Arizona Cardinals WR Marquis Bundy
disorderly conduct (misdemeanor)
failure to obey a police officer (misdemeanor)

https://arizonasports.com/story/1081134/cardinals-receiver-marquis-bundy-arrested-scottsdale/

Early Saturday morning April 1, Mr. Bundy was arrested by Scottsdale police after an incident at International Nightclub originating from his lost hat. He was involved in a scuffle and the officers asked him several times to calm down, after he did not, Mr. Bundy was arrested for disorderly conduct and failure to obey a police officer. He was booked and later released. The Cardinals are aware of the arrest and deferring to the NFL for the personal conduct policy. No word on if he recovered his hat. 1 point each for the misdemeanors, 2 points total for the cardinals.

Washington Redskins LB Junior Galette
-Disorderly conduct (misdemeanor)
-Failure to comply with police officer (misdemeanor)

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000799041/article/redskins-lb-junior-galette-arrested-in-biloxi-miss

On Friday night, April 7, Mr. Galette was arrested in Mississippi after he allegedly got into a fight outside a concert at MGM Park. Once police arrived, he ran after being told to stop, and was also tasered in the process. He was booked and released on disorderly conduct and failure to comply with police officer. The skins are aware of the arrest and have no further comment. 1 point a piece for the charges and taser bonus. 3 points for the Washington Redskins.

http://www.espn.com/blog/san-francisco-49ers/post/_/id/24364/even-if-unintended-49ers-new-regime-sent-message-with-tramaine-brocks-swift-release

On Thursday April 6th, in the evening, Mr. Brock was arrested after authorities responded to a domestic violence call. The female victim, who he was in a relationship with, was found at the scene to have visible injuries. He was booked and later released on Friday morning, also the 49ers released Mr. Brock that afternoon as well. Now I have looked at several sources, can’t seem to find one that says definitively he was charged, the investigation is still on going. I have reached out to Santa Clara PD on twitter to confirm, but have not heard anything. So for now, 1 arrest point, and 1 bonus point for the boot within the 24 hour time frame. Although he has been released, if he does get charged, it will be as a 49er since he was on the roster at the time of the alleged incident.
Yes, this is being treated differently than the Greene indictment, but only because the legal process (arrest) began with him being a 49er and it was during the off-season.

We have been searching through news outlets (not FAKE NEWS) for updates that states he was charged, if he is, then the points will go through.
http://www.scscourt.org/court_divisions/criminal/index_search.asp I can’t find his case on the Santa Clara County Criminal Index, but not sure how often they update it.

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 jump to 4th place with 6 points. Da Bears are in 5th place with 5 points. The Panthers are in 6th place with 3 points, have the arrest tier tiebreaker over the Packers and Redskins who are both in 8th place. In 9th place are the Chargers with 2 points, holding the tiebreaker over the Cardinals and 49ers, who are tied for 11th place. The Chiefs are in 12th place with also 2 points, as they are behind on the other tiebreaker ( less # of arrests). Lastly, rounding out the board in 13h place with 1 point is the Rams.
Hope you all may forgive this transgression. Take care everyone, please be sure to get your latest fantasy crime news right here!

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)

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.
