Joey Porter released from jail after arrest for writing bad checks

Former NFL loudmouth Joey Porter was released from jail on Monday, three days after being arrested for writing bad checks to the Hard Rock casino in Las Vegas.

According to The Bakersfield Californian, Porter was arrested in Bakersfield on a felony warrant from Clark County, Nev., following a traffic stop on Friday. The warrant was for writing $70,000 in bad checks to the casino.

TMZ reports that Porter wrote eight checks to the casino between June 30, 2012 and July 1, 2012. Three checks were for $10,000, four were for $5,000, and the final check was for $20,000. The checks were written in exchange for cash and /or gambling chips. The problem arose when the casino attempted to cash the checks and was informed that the bank refused to pay the money because Porter had put a stop payment on them.

Porter was facing felony theft and fraud charges, but he reportedly paid the casino back all the money and was released from jail as a result.

Porter, who was a four-time Pro Bowl linebacker during his 13-year NFL career, has a history of misbehaving in Las Vegas. You may recall that in 2007 he was cited for misdemeanor battery after getting into a fight with offensive lineman Levi Jones inside the Palms. He sure knows how to keep his name in the news.

Cowboys’ Josh Brent charged with intoxicated manslaughter after teammate Jerry Brown dies in car crash

Dallas Cowboys practice squad linebacker Jerry Brown was killed in a car crash early Saturday morning, and his former teammate, nose tackle Josh Brent (pictured), was arrested and charged with intoxicated manslaughter as the driver during the incident.

Police say the accident occurred around 2:20 a.m. Saturday in Irving. Brent reportedly was speeding when his car hit a curb and flipped. When police arrived on the scene, they found Brent trying to pull Brown from the car, which was on fire.

Brent failed a field sobriety test and was given a blood test at a hospital. He had minor injuries, and his charges were upgraded after Brown died.

Brown and Brent were teammates at the University of Illinois. Brent has 35 tackles on the season for the Cowboys. Brown was signed to the practice squad in late October, but never was part of the active roster.

What’s troubling about Brent’s role in the crash is that he has a prior DWI. He pleaded guilty for driving while intoxicated in 2009 and sentenced to two years probation, 60 days in jail, and 200 hours of community service.

Jerramy Stevens arrested for violating probation

Jerramy Stevens was arrested on Wednesday in Florida for violation of his probation, Larry Brown Sports has confirmed.

A rep at the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office told LBS that the Florida Department of Corrections issued a warrant for Stevens’ arrest for violation of his probation. LBS was informed that Stevens’ arrest by the Kirkland Police Department on Nov. 12 for an alleged fourth-degree domestic violence assault is what violated the terms of his probation.

Stevens is on probation until October 2013 for an Oct. 2010 marijuana possession charge, and we are told he was arrested by his probation officer.

The arrest occurred around 10:00 am per the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s website and Stevens was booked just over an hour later.

The former Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Seattle Seahawks tight end was in court on Nov. 13 to fight the alleged domestic violence charge the day of his wedding. He is married to soccer player Hope Solo, who denied being hit.

News of Stevens’ latest arrest was first passed along by Pro Football Talk.

Chamique Holdsclaw reportedly tried lighting ex-girlfriend’s car on fire

Chamique Holdsclaw was arrested on Thursday after turning herself into Atlanta police for allegedly firing a gun inside her ex-girlfriend’s car during a wild incident on Tuesday.

Holdsclaw reportedly began following her ex-girlfriend, Jennifer Lacy, who had finished a workout at a church. After Lacy realized she was being followed, she pulled over, and that’s when things got bad.

Holdsclaw allegedly bashed the car’s windows in with a baseball bat, and then fired a round of shots in the car while Lacy was inside it. Now we’re learning that Holdsclaw supposedly was planning to light the Range Rover on fire.

According to WSB-TV in Atlanta, police reportedly believe Holdsclaw may have poured gasoline on Lacy’s car and tried shooting to start a bigger fire. And as TMZ shared, the person who called 911 told the dispatcher that Holdsclaw poured gasoline on the car.

Lacy and Holdsclaw dated for around four years, and Lacy broke off their relationship some time last year. The two were teammates on the Atlanta Dream in 2009. Lacy currently plays for the Tulsa Shock. Holdsclaw won three national championships in college at Tennessee, a gold medal at the Olympics, and she played 12 seasons in the WNBA. She has fought depression and even had a suicide attempt in 2006.

Holdsclaw was released from jail after posting $100,000 bond and is being monitored by an ankle bracelet. She is being charged with two counts of aggravated assault, two counts of damaging property and one count of possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, per TMZ.

Holdsclaw reportedly feels terribly about what she did. It’s obvious she’s struggling mentally, so we really hope she gets better.

Jerramy Stevens avoids domestic violence charge day he was to marry Hope Solo

Minutes before LBS was set to publish a report saying Hope Solo and Jerramy Stevens were scheduled to be married on Tuesday, we received confirmation about their relationship and marital plans in one of the weirdest ways possible.

Stevens was in court on Tuesday for an alleged domestic violence charge on Solo. He was arrested for alleged fourth-degree assault early on Monday morning.

The Seattle Post-Intelligencer says Hope’s brother Marcus called police to a house in Kirkland, Washington, because there were unwanted men trying to get into a party at the house early Monday morning. He reportedly used a stun gun while allegedly fighting them.

Police found Hope Solo with blood on her elbow, and they reportedly found Stevens laying on the floor of an upstairs bedroom where he claimed he was asleep, though officers believed he was hiding. He had dried blood on his shirt and reportedly had no answer for how it got there.

Police must make arrests on domestic violence calls, so they arrested Stevens on suspicion of fourth-degree assault because of the blood. He was in court on Tuesday for the alleged charge but was released after the judge found no evidence that domestic violence occurred.

King TV reporter Chris Daniels adds many more details to the story. Daniels reports that police said Solo and Stevens were arguing over whether they would live in Florida or Washington after they got married on Tuesday. He says court documents list Stevens and Solo’s fiance, and that they have been together for two months.

Being in court is nothing new for Stevens. We listed his legal problems at the bottom of this article. This 2009 Post Intelligencer article also details how bad of a guy he is. You honestly have to question Solo’s sanity for her to be with him.

Here are photos via Chris Daniels of both Solo and Stevens in court:

Carlton Fisk had a tremendous mug shot after DUI arrest (Picture)

DUIs are no laughing matter, but Carlton Fisk’s mug shot certainly is.

The Hall of Fame catcher was arrested on Monday night on DUI charges after driving his truck into the middle of a cornfield in Illinois, police reportedly said.

New Lenox Police received a call about a car driving erratically. Officers found Fisk in a cornfield, unconscious behind the wheel of his truck. An open vodka bottle reportedly was also found in the vehicle.

Pudge refused a blood test, and his car was impounded.

Let’s get back to that mug shot. Where the heck was Fisk looking? Camera’s over here, bro. It looks like he just got baked, $hitfaced from pounding about a case of beers, and lost a fight to a garden hose and rake.

Way to make a triumphant comeback into the news, Fisk.
