Court appearance waived for former Buc Arron Sears

A. Sears

Former Buccaneers guard Arron Sears, who took a leave of absence from the team in 2009 and never returned, is currently facing a felony charge of battery on a police officer.

Sears was supposed to attend a hearing Friday, but was uncooperative according to Stephen Holder of the St. Petersburg Times and police decided to return him to jail.

It’s expected that Sears’ sentence will include treatment for psychiatric issues.  He’s twice been ordered a mental health facility by judges.

    Very sad example of head trauma problems facing NFL players.

    I hope he gets the help he needs. If you’ve been following the story, you know that something just isn’t right.

    Also, he was a damn good left guard. As far as football is concerned, he was a heck of a loss for the Bucs. Could have been a future All-Pro.

    Most likely, Sears has schizophrenia. His age and symptoms all point that way. Let’s just hope he gets the help he needs.

    Really? Where is the proof of that? More than likely this guy is just a nut. You know, there are lots of them out there that don’t play football. I hate it when people just make up excuses for people that behave badly.
