NFL Players Arrested Since Lockout Began!
May 22, 2011 Leave a comment
The NFL has had 12 players arrested since the owners have locked out the players. This is not a reflection of the league as a whole. This is just a situation where every corporation or league has a few bad apples.
I interview professional athletes for this website and for The Fans Opinion Radio Show on a regular basis and try to emphisize the positive characters and attributes of each athlete. I write this article to pass on the information of the events and circumstances of each athlete and arrest on an individual basis.
For the number of athlethes in the NFL 12 athletes arrested since the lockout is not an abnormaly large number compared to the amount of athletes in the league.
Packers DT Johnny Jolly : Johnny was arrested on March 25th for allegedly possessing 600 grams of codeine syrup in his Cadillac Escalade.
Cowboys CB Bryan McCann : Was taken to a Dallas detox and cited for public intoxication.
