Bucs wideout busted

Just as the “Days Without an Arrest” meter began to churn back toward double digits, it will be re-set to zero.  (And it will be re-set as soon as Rosenthal or someone else with the login info to the arrest meter tool can change it, given that I had to swipe Florio Jr.’s laptop for my trip to New York because the official PFT laptop is on the fritz.)

When the meter goes back to zero (actually, it will show “02″), the reason will have been (yes, I can conjugating good) the Sunday arrest of Bucs receiver Mario Urrutia.
According to the St. Petersburg Times, Urrutia was arrested for a drivers license violation.  It’s described as a “violation of a non-resident drivers license,” which sounds as if it could be as innocuous as living in Florida without getting a Florida license, or allowing the out-of-state license to lapse.  Either way, it’s a misdemeanor — and it counts as an arrest.
Urrutia, a once-promising prospect at Louisville, has bounced around the league.  He was on Tampa’s practice squad in 2009, elevated to the active roster for the final three games of the season.  He attended Monday’s OTA session, but he did not participate due to an injury.

    This is a perfect example of why I hate the off-season.
    Guy doesn’t have a drivers license and it carries the same weight as a good Bert Farve story. More Betty Farve, all the time.

    He’s a former Bengal. What did you expect?

    We’ll chock this up to the computer. It probably has a child filter, so the most dramatic crime it can report is of the misdemeanor variety. No swear words were uttered during the commission of this crime.

    I bet the cop that arrested him looked Jackie Gleason aka Smokey.

    I know that you get lambasted by ridiculous posters too often, but that title and this story is drastically overstated. Busted…really?

  10. BSPN says: May 18, 2010 1:56 AM

    I can’t wait for the day when Florio gets arrested. It will happen…

    News Flash! Hall of Fame Quarterback busted! (for jaywalking) Details forthcoming! (right after the story about the local puppet show)

  13. JoeSchmoe says: May 18, 2010 2:51 AM

    Hey, to add some spice, one of those former teams IS Cincinnati! Eh, blow off Bengal haters! He doesn’t count against us!

  14. pondbridge says: May 18, 2010 2:52 AM

    Feed those squirrels more peanuts so that the official PFT laptop works, Florio. Better yet, let your son, Comcast Sprint Florio III, edit the blog.

  15. HandsofSweed says: May 18, 2010 6:21 AM

    Ban him from the league, the scumbag POS! Remove his HOF Bust!
    Or, just fine him $65.

  16. TJ says: May 18, 2010 7:00 AM

    Even for the Bucs. Who?

  17. Football says: May 18, 2010 7:14 AM

    In other news, Jay Cutler has an overdue library book. Better get to work, Florio.

  18. ampats says: May 18, 2010 7:25 AM

    Glad to see the Florida Law Enforcement officials are keepng the good citizens safe from criminals that violate the laws of the State of Florida by not changing their license numbers.
    When I saw the headline, I thought it was the rookie WR from Syracuse.

    Based on Urrutia’s past, it sounds like he’s cleaned up his act.

  20. BeaverThomas says: May 18, 2010 7:51 AM

    Cue the Bengals haters since, you know, he was on the Practice Squad……
    Bunch of DumbA****

  21. SATAN567 says: May 18, 2010 9:38 AM

    Why the hell do you have such a complex system of logins for such a simple counter?
    This guys sounds like he belongs in the AFC North.

  22. CaptainObvious says: May 18, 2010 10:53 AM

    “Urrutia was arrested for a drivers license violation.”
    Roethlisberger was never arrested for anything.
    Ever. ;)

  23. Jungle Juice says: May 18, 2010 10:59 AM

    Didn’t he get in trouble in Cincy also?

  24. Gautam says: May 18, 2010 11:43 AM

    Urrutia, sounds like a name from Japanese anime

  25. realitypolice says: May 18, 2010 12:25 PM

    It was reported today that Brett Favre ruptured his Urrutia getting off his tractor.

    I love how “holy” Florio must be as well as these lame holy-rollers that love this kind of non-story crap.
