Just as the “Days without an Arrest” meter crept back toward double digits, an NFL player has caused it to go back to twin zeroes.
According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, police arrested Browns running back Chris Jennings on Saturday. He allegedly “ran into trouble” with the doorman at The Velvet Dog, and he was jailed on suspicion of assault.
Jennings, who rushed for 220 yards last year after joining the team as an undrafted rookie, has not yet been charged with a crime.
Reached for comment, Jennings said, “I’m just trying to get traded to the Jets.”
(OK, that last line was made up. And yet we’ll still get a slew of e-mails and comments asking, “Did he really say that?”)
