Default Dolphins' DT Evans arrested

Dolphins second-year defensive tackle Fred Evans was arrested early Saturday morning on Miami Beach and tasers were used to subdue him, according to a report on CBS4.com.

The 6-foot-4, 305-pound Evans, 23, was charged with battery on a police officer, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and trespassing.

Evens even rips off one of pacmans bites in this one.

What the hell? I can't recall a period of time when this many arrests have happened involving NFL players.

Some excellent PFT analysis (as that is undoubtedly where the OP picked up on this story)

Quote:
In this case, Evans allegedly resisted arrest with violence, and bit a cop on the hand. Though some might wail that he's entitled to the presumption of innocence, the fact that one or more of the polices who dealt with Evans signed their names to a report documenting his misdeeds provides more than enough evidence, in our view, to justify a finding by the team that Evans has engaged in personal conduct that adversely affects or reflects on the organization.

Then again, so does the fact that linebacker Joey Porter punched Levi Jones in the face at a Vegas casino. But that incident caused no consternation for Cam Cameron.

The difference? Porter was added to the team on Cameron's watch; Evans is a holdover from the Nicktator regime. So perhaps the statement from Cameron should be revised to read, "We will not condone this type of behavior, unless committed by a guy to whom we just chose to pay a crap load of money."

Indeed, here's what the Fins said when Porter was cited for battery, "We will monitor the situation and refrain from making any further comment until we gather more information."

So either the Dolphins have dramatically changed their attitude about things of this nature since March, or they simply opted not to take a hard line with Porter because to do so would have been to acknowledge that they might have erred by signing him to a contract with $20 million in guaranteed payments.

The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.

It's all about the money and the high profile players. You "make statements" with backup caliber players but sweep under the rug incidents by your stars.

big difference in punching a punk assed bungle who had it coming vs. attacking and biting a cop who was just doing his job.

infact porter probably saved levi jones the embarassment of getting arrested later in the evening and saved the las vegas police and hotel security of having to apprehend and subdue him.

porter actually provided a pre emptive public service. he should be commended.



peace out.

Man, a lot of arrests this offseason. Heck Rodger, I think we have more 1 season suspensions.

Well its where the story came from (despite the secondary link).

I'll give props where its due.

One if my bugbears are people who don't understand the term 'rumormill' and fly off the handle when a story goes south.

Maybe its just because im a Patriots fan, and therefore used to weeding out 'real news' from 'press filler', that I can appreciate what they offer.
