Report: Unnamed (for now) Patriots player victimized by home invasion

A yet-unnamed member of the New England Patriots was the victim of an apparent crime, according to Shalise Manza Young of the Providence Journal.

Per Young, North Attleboro police Lieutenant David Dawes confirmed Monday the existence of an investigation of “an incident involving a Patriots player,” believed to be a home invasion.

Young suggests that the player in question might have been cornerback Jonathan Wilhite, who was a surprise scratch with an injury that he suffered on Sunday.

Agent Jason Chayut told Young that the injury was “nothing serious,” and that it didn’t require hospitalization.

Regardless of whether the victim was Wilhite or someone else, the incident is the third crime against an NFL player in three weeks.  The lawn of Bills cornerback Leodis McKelvin was vandalized after a Week One loss at New England, and Bills safety Donte Whinter’s home was robbed of $400,000 in jewelry during the September 20 game against Tampa Bay.

    Maybe this will cause Plax to be pardoned

    Florio….WTF?…is this another of your witch hunts?

    Read the Globe (Boston.com). It’s Willhite. What’s this “unnamed player” stuff. How about doing research BEFORE printing the stoty (Egad– never thought of that!)

    Actually, it’s the first crime against an NFL player.
    I’m pretty sure the Bills are a UFL team.

    A home invasion is far more serious than simple break in

    Hey Mike, it must be a conspiracy. “They” are out to get NFL players.
    Are you bored or just a poor journalist, I mean blogger.

    And ppl always wanna criticize players for carrying “heat”?? You and I are regular joes and not nearly the targets these athletes are…
    thats just terrible!

    I’m glad to see that the “FLORIO, THIS IS A NON-STORY” POLICE are quick on the story. What fascinating and compelling lives you guys live!

  11. eric says: Sep 28, 2009 5:40 PM

    I heard he was kept out of the game because Favre wants him on the Vikings

  12. bonecity7 says: Sep 28, 2009 5:43 PM

    Mike,
    I strongly suggest that ‘pondbridge’ be banned for use of the word “egad”!!!
    ‘Nuff said!!

    N0 matter whom you root for, it is always sad when someone gets vicitimized like this.
    I wonder if he had a state-of-the-art security system set up so that they can catch the slimeballs who perpetrated this heinous crime.
    If not, that’s too bad…especially given that the Pats have an in-house expert (Belichick) on state-of-the-art cameras on staff. LOL

    Wheres Steve Grogan?

    I hardly think a drunken pissed off fan giving McKelvin a chemical “lawn job” equates to home invasion. But that’s why we love those lawyers. They can turn a high school style prank into a crime as serious as home invasion and burglary.

    Brady did it. He wants his planters back.

    “Heat” is not going to help you when your house is robbed while you are playing a game. Geesh.
    It is called a burglar alarm folks. Hey! NFL PLAYERS! Here’s a clue! Get one!

    Lets see, the worst recession since the great depression and we have guys running around flaunting their 400k worth of Jewelry. Nope I can’t figure out why anyone would target them ?

  19. TFBuckFutter says: Sep 28, 2009 6:56 PM

    Come on, Bills fans. If I had equated the Raiders, Vikings or Cardinals to a UFL team, I would have been insulted mercilessly at this point.
    You guys need to sack up and defend your footballish team.

    Umm….most people would call that “blaming the victim”. It’s akin to saying “That girl deserved to be raped. Look at her short skirt and big boobs and pretty hair and blue eyes and high heels and the way she’s chewing that gum…..”

    Jewelry in this context is pronounced “Juray”.l

    Hmmm…..where to start with that? Worst recession since the great depression? If it was a depression, then it by definition cannot be a recession genius. Not to mention the recessions in the 1950’s, 70’s, late 80’s and early 90’s. I hate it when people talk about the past when they have no clue of American economic history.
    Besides, what the hell do you care what this person spends their money on? You think its okay for him to get robbed because he has a lot of money?
    If you hate money and capitalism so much, why dont you move your sorry-ass to France and join the rest of the socialist, ignorant pussies!!!!!!!!

    ……cue gun nut crowd….everybody needs a gun to protect themselves from home invasions.

    Not “a” gun.
    A combination of shotguns, rifles, and handguns is preferred. Situations vary.
    Nothing against the police, but 9 out of 10 incidents are long over by the time they show up.
