Default Tackle Jeremy Bridges Arrested

Taking a page from Pacman Jones.....

Panthers tackle Bridges arrested on misdemeanor assault charge

By MIKE CRANSTON, AP Sports Writer
July 26, 2007

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Carolina Panthers tackle Jeremy Bridges was arrested Thursday and charged with misdemeanor assault after he was accused of pointing a gun at a female employee of a strip club.

Capt. Lisa Goelz of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg police department said the incident occurred Wednesday night at Club Onyx in Charlotte, but the woman didn't file a complaint with police until Thursday.

Bridges was arrested Thursday afternoon and released on $3,000 bond.

Panthers spokesman Charlie Dayton said the team was gathering information.

"Those who know this organization knows we take these situations seriously," Dayton said.

Dayton said he was unsure if Bridges would report to training camp on Friday. Players are due in Spartanburg, S.C., by noon for a series of meetings. The first practice is Saturday morning.

Bridges could also face disciplinary action from the NFL under the league's new, tougher conduct policy.

Bridges is the second Panthers player to be arrested in the offseason. D'Anthony Batiste was acquitted of carrying a concealed weapon after a Mecklenburg County judge ruled his arrest for a window tint violation was a pretext to search Batiste's car.

The 6-foot-4, 326-pound Bridges was signed last September after starting left tackle Travelle Wharton sustained a season-ending knee injury. He eventually moved into the starting lineup at right tackle when Jordan Gross moved to the left side to replace Wharton.

Bridges, who played at Southern Mississippi, spent two seasons with the Arizona Cardinals and started 11 games before he was cut in training camp in 2006. The Panthers were impressed with how he filled in last season, and he was a candidate to remain a starter this season.

Wow...a strip club you say?

Those joints don't normally cause any trouble at all.

I wonder if the teams who don't get this type of trouble,have some sort of code of conduct where visiting strip clubs is off bounds altogether?

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.

If they don't, they should. When I was in the Army, we were given a list of places that were strictly forbidden for us to go, namely strip joints and dive bars. And there was hell to pay if you got caught going to one of those places.

Sure, that makes sense - only bad stuff happens in those places (apart from ladies removing clothing) especially when you factor in the ego's some of these morons carry round with them.

The way things are happening at strip clubs lately, it would not surprise me if teams start putting in players contracts they are not allowed to go around them anymore..

Sure, alot of these players seem to have a pretty lethal c0cktail going on - roids, over-inflated ego, alcohol......

Its not as if its two guys all the time, waitresses and dancers seem fair game too!

I also wonder about the IQ of these guys, and thats its not only game time intelligence teams are looking at , but also a base level that tells them that they wont ever get the opportunity to get paid so much money ever again.

And in other news Bridges has been traded to the bungles for a 7th round pick and the charge of transferring the case from Carolina to Ohio.
