Default Alex Boone - OSU OT....arrested and tasered.

OSU's Boone arrested, Tasered in Calif. after drunken tirade


ALISO VIEJO, Calif. (AP) -- Ohio State offensive lineman Alex Boone was arrested after being subdued with a Taser during an alleged drunken tirade, authorities said Monday.

Boone, 21, was taken into custody late Sunday for investigation of resisting arrest after Orange County sheriff's deputies responded to a disturbance call outside of a home in Aliso Viejo.

When they arrived, the 6-foot-8, 312-pound tackle had been jumping on car hoods, yanking on a tow truck cable and trying to break a window, said sheriff's spokesman Jim Amormino.

Boone ran away from deputies and was found hiding underneath a patio, authorities said. Boone was combative and uncooperative and had to be taken down with a stun gun, Amormino said.

"He was yelling obscenities at deputies and had a strong smell of alcohol," Amormino said. "His blood-alcohol level was at least three times the legal amount."

Boone was taken to a hospital and then to a jail medical ward, where he remained. He had not been booked yet.

Boone, who was selected All-Big Ten this year, could be selected in the NFL draft in April.

Ohio State spokeswoman Shelly Hoffman said Monday that she was unaware of the arrest and could not comment.

oh somebody will draft him.......but instead of being a 3rd or 4th rd pick, he'll probably drop to a 5th or 6th..

Sounds like he'd be a good fit for the ratbirds or cryboys.

I would take Boone at the end of the 4th in a heartbeat. Kind of stupid getting drunk and this before draft, but not like he was a 3rd year pro and driving around with joints in his SUV (Santonio anybody?).

Boone is big, strong, has long arms, a good kick slide and sets a base well. He just has trouble with speed guys like Orakpo....but who doesn't. Boone will be a solid RT for 10 years in the NFL and I still like him as a talent.

Totally agree..if Boone falls to the 4th...I would grab him in a heartbeat. I do have some concerns about his heavy feet...but he would be a value in the 4th.

You know....Boone does a good job in setting a solid base and kick sliding to be in position to use his long arms in pass protection. If Max Starks was able to use his size to his advantage like Boone does.........Starks would be a Pro Bowler.

I was concerned earlier in the year with the way Boone didnt bend at the hips and knees well in run blocking, but he looked better at the end of the year. Boone isnt agile enough to be a good LT, but can be a really good RT. Kind of a thinner Jon Runyan or Tony Pashos.
