In continuing my latest post, here are the NFL bad boys of defense. Before I get started I would like to share some of my research. Wide receiver is the position with the most arrests, while offensive center has the least. I don’t know why this is, but I will speculate that offensive center is a position that requires a lot of intelligence. Could there be some correlation?
Ray Lewis (Ravens), Terrell Suggs (Ravens), Akeem Jordan (Eagles)
Best arrest: I’m going to go with Ray Lewis on this one – not because it’s humorous or particularly bad, but because someone needs to set the record straight. As one of RayRay’s biggest fans, I’m happy to take on this responsibility. Lewis was arrested for murder; those charges were dismissed in exchange for his testimony against 2 other men, who were later acquitted. SO – if you want to say anything, maybe you can call Ray Lewis a snitch, but I wouldn’t do it to his face, he can be pretty scary. Love this man.
(Sorry, I couldn’t post his mugshot - couldn’t do that to my man)
Adam “Pac-Man” Bernard Jones (Bengals), Charles Woodson (Packers)
Best arrest: Charles Woodson might not have the most exciting arrest, but he does have a pretty good story. Woodson has been arrested for public intoxication and driving under the influence. Why? The man is a total wino! He even has his own label. I think I’ll wait to pass judgment on this guy until I try some of his vino.
Defensive End (2):
Raheem Brock (Seahawks), Jerry Hughes (Colts)
Best arrest: In 2010 Raheem Brock was arrested for a DUI. That seems pretty run-of-the-mill. This year he was arrested for walking out on a $27 bar tab. Yep, you read that right, twenty-seven dollars.
Fili Moala (Colts), Tony McDaniel (Dolphins)
Best arrest: Tony McDaniel was arrested and charged with domestic violence after a public fight with his girlfriend. She says he started it and threw her to the ground. He says she started it, and she fell as a result of his attempts to defend himself. Sounds like a lot of he-said she-said to me, but it doesn’t help that he also smashed her cell phone while a friend called the police. I don’t support men hitting women, but if she attacked him then he definitely had a right to defend himself.
Tyrell Johnson (Vikings), Lawyer Milloy (Seahawks)
Best arrest: So many drunk driving arrests! The only interesting part of Lawyer Milloy’s arrest is that it occurred less than 12 hours after he played a losing game. Even NFL players turn to alcohol in times of despair.
