Patriots defensive back arrested

As the arrest meter continues to reset on a regular basis, the latest guy to send the thing back to double zeroes plays for the Patriots.

Per WEEI.com, defensive back Bret Lockett was arrested in Providence, Rhode Island for disorderly conduct and “failure to move” outside a club.

The arrest came earlier today.  The Boston Globe reports that it happened between 1:00 a.m. and 4:00 a.m.

Jets fans instantly will wonder whether the Patriots will be pressured to deactivate Lockett.  In his case, it’s a moot point.  Lockett currently is on injured reserve, and he won’t be eligible to play for the Patriots at any point this year.

Lockett was claimed via waivers in 2009.  He appeared in 10 games before being placed on injured reserve in December.

    Suspend him for all of next year

    I’m sorry, this must be a typo. Only the Jets have thugs on their team…at least that is what the media would have you believe.

    Dude would have been cut in pre-season if he wasn’t hurt

    He’ll be released. Probably wouldn’t if he contributed more.

    Who the hell is Bret Lockett?

  8. Dan says: Sep 25, 2010 5:29 PM

    If he was placed on IR in December – that was for the 2009 year. Is he even a Patriot anymore?

    Typical patriots scumbag.

  10. MarylandChief says: Sep 25, 2010 5:35 PM

    Having watched Brett Favre in the pocket this year, couldn’t he be cited for, “failure to move?”

  11. Kiss Bills Rings says: Sep 25, 2010 5:40 PM

    non story…never even heard of the guy
    & who gives a shit what Jets fans will think about this anyway????
    this story is a moot point….

    i at least thought it would be kyle arrington or somebody who mattered. guy doesnt even go to the patriots training facility.

  17. CollegeToPros says: Sep 25, 2010 6:05 PM

    honestly, who gives a damn what most (not all, there are exceptions) jets fans think?
    no other fanbase understands the NFL worse than them.
    as for Lockett, i didnt even know we still had him and really, “failure to move?” lol what a criminal.
    i mean it is totally comparable to braylon DRUNK DRIVING at 5:15 am! right?
    ^exactly why jets fans know nothing. they would compare this to braylon haha

    I agree with Mike Fatcessa of WFAN, obviously the Patriots are an undisciplined team. Their head coach is to blame.
    What a joke of an organization.

    and AT LEAST IT WASNT A DUI

  22. FrankZappa says: Sep 25, 2010 6:21 PM

    “failure to move” is obviously code for the fascist pigs to arrest somebody without cause…it is a police state, WAKE UP PEOPLE!, and anything the cops do is suspect…just like the anti-war activists whose homes were raided today in chicago and elsewhere are going to be labeled enemies of the state…stand up before it is too late and we are all wearing armbands and jackboots…

  23. iusedtobeteddybayer says: Sep 25, 2010 6:28 PM

    But unlike Braylon Edwards this doesn’t drive drunk or look like a terrorist.

  24. Terrell Blowens says: Sep 25, 2010 6:35 PM

    @thegreenelantern
    No the national media did it more like this:
    “Darrelle Revis is the best player in NFL history!!!”
    “Rex Ryan is so great!”
    “Super Bowl this year!!!”
    “Mark Sanchez is very good QB!!”
    *all of the above are completeley false
    Then after the sexual harassment (the turning point):
    “The Jets are so classless”
    “Braylon Edwards is a moron”
    “Mark Sanchez sucks”
    *all of the above are true to some degree

    Nope we were wondering how you were going to work the Jets into your story – yet again.
    Give it a rest Florio, seriously.

  28. buddha says: Sep 25, 2010 7:12 PM

    Yeah Im sure Pats fans will still talk about how it was such a great idea to get rid of Asante. How many Pro-Bowl CB’s have you had since he left?

    ————————————————————————————-Really, you mean you Patsie fans, who all jumped on a bandwagon in 2001 know anything about football. You people can’t even name any Patriot QB’s other than Bledsoe and Brady or a coach other than Bellicheat.

    One guy was drunk… the other was drunk and driving a vehicle. There’s a big difference.

  36. Wrathchild says: Sep 25, 2010 8:45 PM

    He’s on IR but healthy enough to get rowdy at a club. Yah, okie dokie.

  37. jcjets says: Sep 25, 2010 9:25 PM

    Listen aholes, the point of the Braylon Edwards talk is to raise the bar of what we expect out of pro athletes. To me, this sounds like a pretty minor offense, and the dude isn’t active, BUT when a DUI/DWI happens to a good player on one of your teams I hope you go quietly and accept the criticism when your team fails to suspend just like the jets did.

  38. PirateFreedom says: Sep 25, 2010 9:40 PM

    I was worried when I read the headline
    then I read the name and said who dat?

  39. NoKoolaidCowboy says: Sep 25, 2010 9:43 PM

    Nothing good ever comes from being outside a club between 1:00 am – 4:00 am.
    When will they learn?

  40. PFTiswhatitis says: Sep 25, 2010 9:43 PM

    He was not driving while intoxicated since he “failed to move.”

  41. BP says: Sep 25, 2010 10:18 PM

    Don’t you need to at least suit up for a game to be called a “Patriots defensive back”? You should have headlined it, “Patriots welfare recipient”.

  42. TheLeonardLeap says: Sep 25, 2010 11:11 PM

    I wasn’t even aware you could be arrested for “failure to move”.. isn’t that the same criminal intensity as jaywalking and littering? Sounds like something you’d only be arrested for if you’re famous and the cop wants his 15 minutes of fame for arresting an NFL player… and no, I am not a Patriots fan, and I dislike Tom Brady. I just don’t think that something like “failure to move” should even be mentioned in the same sentence with DWI, bringing firearms into airports, drug problems, and assault… unless that sentence is saying they shouldn’t be in the same sentence..

  43. Bell63 says: Sep 25, 2010 11:12 PM

    He was IR’ed this year and last – I don’t think theres much of a chance hes playing tomorrow.

    Speaking as a Jet Fan, I hardly think this is compariable to what Braylon did. I’ll stay a Jet Fan, but I think you’re stupid when you have as many options as Braylon had and chose not to use them. He could’ve injured/killed himself or others. There is a difference and we’re smart enough to know this.

    I’m a Pats fan who HATES the Jets but they had ZERO options to do anything with Braylon so you won’t see me ragging on them about it. I think that is something that is very wrong with the CBA (not being able to suspend/deactivate guys even with pay and not being able to do it at all with these “substance abuse” cases) but I doubt the union agrees.
    I personally am VERY disgusted when players on the team I root for get in trouble and the more highly I thought of them the angrier I am.

  46. prophet of the light says: Sep 26, 2010 3:41 AM

    Brett Lockett is an IR’d Patriot because he isn’t good enough to take a role on special teams and will likely be overtaken by Josh Barrett or Jarrad Page.
    Oh well. I wonder when he will be released.

  47. divine says: Sep 26, 2010 8:03 AM

    How the heck does that make him a thug? Wow. People need to remove the thongs from between their arsecheeks. LOL again, wow……people need to go back to dictionary and study what a real thug is….lol A cop gets ignorant with someone and its likely rude with the guy and likely cussed at the guy and ignorantly incited the anger in him by yelling at him to move…the guy gets angry and says, Im not going anywhere in a defensive attitude….how is that a thug? A thug is a crook….hello?

    The Patriots must be a pretty big deal if a non-story like this gets 50 comments. One whiff of their ass and all the Pat haters come running, armed with their keyboards and pale skin from living in their parents’ basement. Here’s a concept: Get a life!
