Default Bengals pick Nicholson charged in alleged theft

Bengals pick Nicholson, Rouse charged in alleged theftESPN.com news services


Two former Florida State football players have been charged with stealing electronic equipment worth more than $1,700 from the home of a current player, Tallahassee Police told ESPN's Joe Schad on Wednesday.

Cincinnati Bengals linebacker A.J. Nicholson and former wide receiver Fred Rouse, who was dismissed by coach Bobby Bowden at the end of last season for detrimental conduct, are charged with burgularizing the Tallahassee home of current Florida State running back Lorenzo Booker on May 20 or 21.

Rouse confessed his involvement to authorities on May 27, according to police. Rouse was arrested and charged with three felonies: burgularly of a dwelling, grand theft and unrelated possessions of a controlled substance without a prescription, which was esctacy. Rouse has been released on bond.

A police source said that among the items investigators found at Booker's home was a wide receivers' glove with "1," Rouse's former jersey number, stiched into the inside of it. The glove had been left under a color television that had been thrown onto the floor.

A warrant is out for the arrest of Nicholson, who faces felony charges of burgularly of a dwellling and grand theft and criminal mischief, which is a misdemeanor.

"Obviously, Lorenzo's not really happy that his former teammates, Rouse and Nicholson, did this," Tallahassee Police Public Information Officer John Newland said. "This incident occurred May 20 and A.J. was drafted in April. You knew you were leaving. Why would you put yourself through this? It's just really unfortunate."

Entrance to the home was made by breaking a rear window, police said. In gaining entry, the suspects appeared to cut themselves as they left blood and on one of Booker's roommates sheets. Police later found drops of blood at the exterior of the home of Nicholson's girlfriend.

In a sworn, taped interview on May 28, Rouse said Nicholson had entered the home and carried out two portable stereos, a DVD player and a pair of headphones. Rouse also said Nicholson had sustained a substantial cut on a finger.

Nicholson, who was accused of a sexual assault in Miami and sent home from the Orange Bowl, was selected by the Bengals in the fifth round. Nicholson, who has pleaded no contest to a DUI arrest and had another incident with Tallahassee police that led to dropped charges of resisting arrested, has not been charged in the sexual assault case.

Rouse, one of the nation's top freshman prospects last season, and a native of Tallahassee, had only six catches for 114 yards and one touchdown. Rouse also returned 11 punts for 97 yards and six kickoffs for 107 yards.

That's for sure.Disorderly Conduct or Theft?I'll take a player on my team being charged with Disorderly Conduct which is a misdemeanor over Theft which is a felony.

Also,it turns out Santonio was arrested for not following the order of a police officer.The cop told him to get out of the middle of the street when he was crossing the street and he had some choice words for the cop,who was probally in plain clothes so Holmes probally had no clue he was talking to a cop.

WTF!!!

Players either coming from Florida and/or in Florida getting into trouble??
That state must be a police magnet for NFL players.

This is no surprise at all...Nicholson was a horrible draft pick, a reach at where he was taken, and a HUGE character issue problem to boot. Look, read this again:

"Cincinnati Bengals linebacker A.J. Nicholson and former wide receiver Fred Rouse, who was dismissed by coach Bobby Bowden at the end of last season for detrimental conduct, are charged with burgularizing the Tallahassee home of current Florida State running back Lorenzo Booker on May 20 or 21."

Do you realize how much of a thug you have to be to be released by FSU? By Bobby Bowden? Yet this is the company AJ liked to keep.

This kid is gonna make Chris Henry look like Aunt Bea from Mayberry before his career is over (if he can stay out of jail long enough to actually start a career!)

It's hard to make fun of a team's 5th round pick getting charged for an alleged theft when your first round pick has already been arrested.

Wow...just...WOW! What a deluded universe you live in where walking in traffic is considered a worse offense than theft.
