I don't know HTG... Running from the police i think almost does it for me immediately.

After all, if he couldn't run from some middle-aged cop... How can he run away from for a LB when he catches a ball?

Harrison and Tone manned up. Only idiots run from the cops.

I'm not saying that what he did was smart and as I alluded to - makes him look even more guilty of whatever he is accused of doing in the first place. I just want a little more info on the original charge(s) before I pass judgment. Thus far, we know very little. If he did whatever he is accused of doing, then I agree - toss his ass outta here.

He should have offered the cop a donut or two instead of running.

well i had a friend get arrested the other night when the cops had gotten called for a noise violation because of a small house party and they thought he was resisting arrest, which he wasnt, so everyone should really wait to figure what happened before jumping all over him

He may be so dedicated to his rehab that he went out at 0330 hrs for a light jog which due to amazing misfortune took him past a bar where the police had just arrived on a disorderly conduct complaint and mistaked my client, I mean Jonathan, for the wrong man. Yea I think thats how it went down.

http://nflfromthesidelines.blogspot....-big-deal.html

What's the big deal?
From the AP: ALEXANDRIA, Va. – Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Jonathan Dekker was arrested early Saturday and charged with obstruction of justice.
Dekker, who injured his knee in August and spent the season on injured reserve, was released on $1,000 bond, police said.

Police said they responded to a complaint at 3:30 a.m. near Old Town Alexandria. When they arrived, police said, Dekker tried to flee but was apprehended.

Police did not provide details of the complaint. A hearing is scheduled for Feb. 2.

The 6-foot-5, 250-pound Dekker played three games for the Steelers in 2007. He was signed by the Steelers in 2006 as a free agent from Princeton and spent that season on the practice squad.
Pittsburgh plays Arizona in the Super Bowl on Feb. 1.

The Steelers put Dekker on injured reserve after he tore knee ligaments, but his chances of making their final roster weren't great. He's a receiving threat at tight end, not a blocker.

But that won't stop some from saying this will be a distraction for the Steelers as they prepare for the Super Bowl.

Puhleez. Dekker has spent time in Pittsburgh rehabbing his knee, but he's hardly relevant in the grand scheme of things.
