Trying to run over the police and injuring a person in another vehicle, He IS going to jail, and they won't be letting him out.

He's lucky they didn't shoot him dead.

They drew both of their guns as the Navigator came at them, but neither of them fired “due to the large number of pedestrians and motorists on the sidewalks and roadway.”

Taking off the blue shirt was guaranteed to make the escape plan work

This guy is gone and deservedly is looking at jail time

Tomlin's press conference tomorrow should be pleasant

lucky for him he was not shot. driving cars at people should be attempted murder charges.

I'd like to see the cop who punched him in the face.

Daaaaaamnit!!! I really had high hopes for this kid. And, not just me, NFL Network called him the steal of the draft.

Looks like Star Lotulelei or Jonathan Hankins just surpassed any SS on our "to draft" list.

This is not exactly a mistake like forgetting to pay the water bill - some mistakes are built to last

As stated above, he is lucky he did not kill someone or that the police did not kill him

Man you said it. All I am hopeful for is that DeCastro, Adams, and company can all get healthy, get reps, and be ready to make some noise next season. Maybe it'll be like having two drafts next year lol. If I am the F.O. I release this chump immediately. No excuse whatsoever. What a shame these young kids waste these opportunities given to them after years of hard work. I have Zero tolerance for this crap.

That's not an average 22 year old kind of mistake.. Those are full blown asshole/criminal actions. Once he is cut and out of the league, the arrests will probably become routine because its just the kind of person he apparently is.

yep. This isn't just a regular "DUI" such as Justin Blackmon's down in Jax. This one's much more serious.

Drunk driving. Running from the cops. Crashing into multiple vehicles.

He's GONE. Anybody want to start guessing which day he gets released? Terrible news though....i had really, really high hopes for a long-term future here that could have included stardom...he had that much potential.

as if things aren't hard enough for Steeler Nation - what a complete a-hole.

This only compounds the frustrations.
