Report: LSU safety Jalen Mills punched woman, knocked her out

Jalen-Mills-mug-shotLSU defensive back Jalen Mills was arrested early Wednesday morning and charged with second-degree battery. According to a probable cause report obtained by WAFB in Louisiana, Mills has been accused of punching a woman in the face at his apartment complex last month.

The report stated that the victim, who was identified as a 5-foot-3, 113-pound woman, knocked on the door to Mills’ apartment because she was looking for her friend. Mills allegedly confronted her and closed the door in her face, and she walked away when no one answered her second knock. The woman claimed she then heard someone say something, at which point she turned around and was punched in the face.

A person who witnessed the incident gave the same report as the victim.

The report went on to say that the woman “fell to the pavement and was briefly unconscious” after she was allegedly punched by Mills. She suffered a laceration on her lip that required four stitches.

No bond has been set for Mills. The LSU Sports Information Department announced on Wednesday that Mills has been suspended from the football team indefinitely. Mills was the Tigers third-leading tackler last season with 67 tackles. He was named an All-American cornerback as a freshman in 2012 before moving to safety last year.

Josh Gordon cited for speeding; passenger had marijuana

Josh GordonThis Josh Gordon character is a real winner, I tell you.

The Cleveland Browns wide receiver, who is facing a suspension from the league after reportedly failing another drug test, was cited for speeding over Memorial Day weekend, WKYC reports.

WKYC says Gordon’s Mercedes SUV was clocked going 74 in a 60-mph zone on Sunday night. Marijuana was also found in the car, but luckily for Gordon, one of his boys pulled off a true homie move and claimed it was his.

Gordon essentially has proven that he is addicted to the ganja. He was suspended two games at the start of last season because of a drug violation. He was kicked off Baylor’s team in college for multiple positive drug tests. And then he transferred to Utah but never played, also because he reportedly failed drug tests there, too.

Gordon isn’t doing a lot right these days, but at least we’ll give him credit for making sure he has a weed carrier in his entourage.

Oklahoma State RB Devon Thomas arrested for armed robbery, shooting to kill

Devon-Thomas-mug-shotOklahoma State freshman running back Devon Thomas was arrested on Wednesday for his involvement in an alleged robbery. According to the Tulsa World, Thomas and three other suspects are accused of robbing a man at gunpoint and shooting with intent to kill.

A police report revealed that the victim claims the men stole his marijuana, money, shoes and clothing and told him to leave before they “bust a cap.” As the victim was driving away, he says one of the suspects fired a shot at him that went through the rear windshield and nicked the head rest, just missing the driver.

The victim said he has known the suspects for several years and identified Thomas as the person who was carrying the gun. Thomas had not been charged as of Friday morning, but he was being held on $125,000 bail.

Thomas is a three-star recruit who enrolled early at Oklahoma State. He set a record at Broken Arrow High by rushing for 1,840 yards during his sophomore season. He was also arrested in March on a traffic warrant. Should he be charged with anything related to Tuesday’s incident, his days with the Cowboys are likely numbered.

Julio Jones’ brother shot, lost arm

Julio Jones Falcons10 days after we learned that Roddy White’s brother had been shot and killed outside a nightclub in South Carolina, a report says the brother of another top Atlanta Falcons wide receiver has been shot.

FOX 10 TV in Mobile, Ala., says Julio Jones’ 31-year-old brother, Phillip, was shot in Gulf shores on Tuesday. He was taken to an urgent care facility and then transported to a hospital in Pensacola, Fla.

FOX 10 says Jones’ arm had to be removed due to injuries sustained from the gunshot wound.

The suspect in the shooting is 53-year-old George Bennett Sutton, who has been arrested and booked on charges of first-degree assault.

TJ Ward allegedly threw glass mug at bartender in strip club

TJ WardAn arrest warrant was issued for Denver Broncos safety T.J. Ward on Thursday for alleged misdemeanor charges of assault and disturbing the peace. According to the warrant, Ward is accused of throwing a glass mug at a bartender inside a Denver strip club called Centerfolds.

According to the warrant, Ward and three other men approached the bartender to ask for $200 in one dollar bills in the early hours of May 10. He was holding a glass bottle when he went up to the bar and was told to take it out to his car or throw it away.

The Denver Post describes it from there:

About 10 minutes later, Ward returned to the bar with a non-alcoholic drink purchased at the club and asked for a cup of ice. The bartender then saw him pour from the same bottle he had been told to take outside, the document said.

The bartender took the cup and poured out the drink. When she turned to help another customer, she felt something hit her wrist, the document said.

The bartender was told Ward threw a glass mug at her. Video surveillance from inside the club reportedly confirms this story.

The other men with Ward include Broncos DT Terrance Knighton and former Broncos CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. The woman did not know who Ward was at the time but identified him by looking at pictures of him on the ‘net.

It looks like everything was worked out because police say the warrant was mistakenly issued. Ward appeared in court on Friday and was given a ticket instead.

Are you at all surprised by this? Do you think the newest member of the Broncos defense would really be arrested for something that small? I don’t want to dismiss what Ward allegedly did because that’s pretty shady, but there’s no way the team wasn’t going to handle this.

Jim Irsay charged with two misdemeanors for OWI arrest

Jim Irsay

Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay has been charged with two misdemeanors for his driving arrest in March, according to FOX 59 in Indianapolis.

Irsay went to rehab after the arrest and has not been punished by the NFL, but he will be facing some potential discipline from the legal system.

According to FOX 59, Irsay has been charged with one count of operating while intoxicated and one count of operating a vehicle with a schedule I or II controlled substances or its metabolite in the body. Both crimes are considered C misdemeanors. The substances were oxycodone and/or hydrocodone.

Irsay supposedly faces 60 days in jail if he’s convincted.

Another concern about Irsay’s arrest was that he was found with $30,000 on him at the time he was pulled over. That raised concern about drug buying/selling, but FOX 59 says the amount of drugs on Irsay’s person supposedly did not rise to the levels of “dealing” status.

Renzo Gracie reportedly arrested following fight with bouncers (Video)

Renzo-GracieRenzo Gracie has not fought in the octagon in over four years, but that doesn’t mean the Brazilian mixed martial artist has executed his last takedown. On Sunday night, Gracie got into it with some bouncers outside a nightclub in New York City.

Sherdog.com reported that Gracie was arrested following the incident. The following video, which contains NSFW language, shows some of the exchanges that took place after the alleged brawl.

The guy who recorded the cell phone video claims Gracie and about seven men arrived at 1-Oak in Manhattan and took the liberty of going to the front of the line. The 47-year-old then got into it with a doorman, and his group allegedly started to rumble with some bouncers. The witness said Gracie put one bouncer into a guillotine choke at one point.

Police then arrived and arrested Gracie and all of his friends. For a guy who is nearly over the hill, it sure sounds like the world famous Jiu-Jitsu coach still has some moves.
