Raiders lineman arrested on gun charge

14271612_BG1

The lockout launched nearly six days ago, and already two arrests have occurred.

Both involve guns.

Vikings cornerback Chris Cook was arrested Saturday for allegedly brandishing a firearm.  On Thursday, Raiders offensive lineman Mario Henderson was arrested for carrying a concealed firearm, according to NBC 2.

Henderson reportedly admitted to having the weapon after being pulled over for violating a Fort Myers ordinance that prohibits music from being heard more than 150 feet from a vehicle.

Henderson, who will become a free agent (possibly restricted, possibly unrestricted) whenever the next league year begins, was charged with carrying a concealed firearm.  He also was cited for failure to wear a seat belt, and for violating the noise ordinance.

A four-year veteran who arrived via round three of the 2007 draft, Henderson appeared in every game with seven starts in 2010.  In 2009, he started every game.

    It’s good to see that the players have continued to demonstrate what a responsible group of upstanding citizens that they are.

    NFLPA better hope they get that injunction or otherwise 3/4 of the players are gonna be in the pen on weapons charges come opening weekend

    ordinance that prohibits music from being heard more than 150 feet from a vehicle.

    What a great ordinance. Can we have that in Los Angeles?

    Another non-stupid NFLPA* member !

    *applause*

    I live about 35 miles away from there & I think carrying a gun in We-high Acres is normal. It should be like that fishing permit that covers everyone fishing off the Pier here in Naples.

    Mario “Turnstile” Henderson should start looking for a job.

    a tiny piece of me wants to see the lockout continue long enough to see these morons go bankrupt or thrown into jail one by one now that paychecks aren’t coming in…these poor “modern day slaves”

    worst lineman on the roster. good riddance.

  10. hobartbaker says: Mar 17, 2011 10:02 PM

    The evidence seems strong. But then you look into those big, soft, brown, puppy dog eyes and you know it can’t be true.

  11. alpod says: Mar 17, 2011 10:18 PM

    congrats to @hobartbaker for the best PFT comment ever.

    News is when something unexpected happens not something that we all expect to happen.

  13. 1buckeye76 says: Mar 17, 2011 10:22 PM

    there are an awful lot of arrests going on amongst nfl players, which are not being met with the obligatory piling on which generally follows an incident involving a player employed in cincinnati… just sayin’

  14. saswear says: Mar 17, 2011 10:26 PM

    I am just glad that they aren’t Bengals players.

  15. paul82461 says: Mar 17, 2011 10:33 PM

    pretty soon we can have the games in the prison yard and cut out the middle man. The losing team can be beaten like slaves…right Adrian?

  16. Canyonero says: Mar 17, 2011 10:35 PM

    ordinance that prohibits music from being heard more than 150 feet from a vehicle.

    What a great ordinance. Can we have that in Los Angeles? …And in Pittsburgh?

  17. hosmachine says: Mar 17, 2011 10:38 PM

    And you all thought guns in mexico were a problem. The players pack more heat now days ,you know being Slaves and all you just can’t be too careful. At least the Raiders wouldn’t let us down. 1 for 1 the first week of the lockout. Sweet The Vikings will still set the record for most players in trouble during this lockout without a doubt.

  18. ernestbynershands says: Mar 17, 2011 10:44 PM

    @saswear & 1buckeye76
    Be happy there are bengals in the news at all.
    Cincinnati Been-gals….hahahaha

  19. sourdough says: Mar 17, 2011 10:45 PM

    He’s a Raider…no surprise here.

  20. tdk24 says: Mar 17, 2011 11:05 PM

    He and Bush can now be resigned for cheap!

  21. nacjim says: Mar 17, 2011 11:07 PM

    We’re not that stupid Mr. Goodell. Just burn that warrant.

  22. jimmysee says: Mar 17, 2011 11:09 PM

    Raiders = Vikings west

  23. ernestbynershands says: Mar 17, 2011 11:09 PM

    Didn’t Mario read Florio’s last post?
    Or was the picture of Mario’s ankles?

  24. deckard26354 says: Mar 17, 2011 11:18 PM

    Chester Pitts, what say you?

  25. mick730 says: Mar 17, 2011 11:32 PM

    I’m sure that when the NFL owners look at this guy’s mug shot, they get the same reaction that I do; boy, he sure looks like somebody with whom I would like to be a partner in business.

  26. realfootballfan says: Mar 17, 2011 11:40 PM

    It’s a good thing the authorities are out there cracking down on those horrible crimes of loud music and such in an overly crime ridden area like Ft. Myers.

    Good thing they got this goofy, harmless guy because he was carrying his gun in the wrong place instead of dealing with those crack dealers, gangsters, and such that saturate that area.

    Good thing indeed.

  27. kball75 says: Mar 17, 2011 11:55 PM

    I guess it’s just me but I don’t really look at the Bengals as criminals anymore. They haven’t had any major incidents since Henry passed – and let’s be honest – he was a big part of the negative media attention Cincy was getting.

    The worst attention I’ve seen the Bengals get is the T.O/Ocho show. Those two clowns should be cut ASAP. When I think of the Bengals I think of Benson, the steady o-line (sry i dont know their names), Gresham, Peko, the USC backers and the talented corners. All of these guys seem like stand up individuals to me and basically get a bad rap because of the WVU kids.

  28. 7pints says: Mar 18, 2011 12:03 AM

    You ever see those photos of people who look like their dogs? How about players who act like their fans?

  29. mjm86 says: Mar 18, 2011 12:07 AM

    Pleeeeeeeeeeeeaeeeseee stop making us blacks look bad in sports!!!

  30. jbaxt says: Mar 18, 2011 12:17 AM

    Raiders, gun charges, criminals…

    This isn’t news, this is just another day in the life of the black hole.

  31. rayjayjohnsonjr says: Mar 18, 2011 12:40 AM

    And the beat goes on. Actually, his pic looks like the epotimy of innocense. No, not really. lol

  32. p4ck3r5 says: Mar 18, 2011 12:45 AM

    Another one bites the dust!

  33. bloodydamnsox says: Mar 18, 2011 12:50 AM

    Guns, guns, guns. Seems like that’s all ever talk about anymore.

  34. drbob117 says: Mar 18, 2011 12:57 AM

    Didn’t the old folks used to say “Idle hands are the devil’s playground” , or something like that? There are going to be lots of stories like this as the lockout continues; these guys don’t know what to do with their time….

  35. seanx40 says: Mar 18, 2011 1:30 AM

    What I do not understand is why he just didn’t get a carry permit. Minnesota is a “shall issue” state. Pretty easy to get on. If he has not been previously convicted of a felony, or violent misdemeanor, he can get one. It isn’t hard.

  36. hoodheisman says: Mar 18, 2011 2:23 AM

    I’m trying to find a reason to care….

  37. waitingguilty says: Mar 18, 2011 2:56 AM

    It’s inevitable….

    Like water on the ground….

    Locked out players will find their way…

    To a courthouse.

    Come on “De” get these guys into an off season program- STAT!

  38. jw731 says: Mar 18, 2011 3:05 AM

    I suppose cruising the hood, with a pimped out ride, with a killer sound system, sporting a glock is just the burden these “modern day slaves” have to carry…

  39. madamschefter says: Mar 18, 2011 3:07 AM

    Interesting how there were TWO players arrested in this article yet only gets all the attention. Typical.

  40. oldcracker says: Mar 18, 2011 3:26 AM

    The guy played like he was already wearing ankle bracelets.

    They’ll be waiting for him at the Cleveland Airport. :)

  41. jaxx12 says: Mar 18, 2011 4:17 AM

    On a team filled with crappy offensive linemen, Mario Henderson is the crappiest.

    Too bad he didn’t take the firearm with him on the field. It’s the only way this turd is capable of slowing down the opposing pass rush.

  42. tfbuckfutter says: Mar 18, 2011 6:23 AM

    I didn’t even know Bad News Brown played for the Raiders.

  43. thegonz13 says: Mar 18, 2011 6:33 AM

    Par for the course for a Raider!

  44. stormin5 says: Mar 18, 2011 6:50 AM

    So does this mean gas prices are going up again?

  45. huejackson says: Mar 18, 2011 8:50 AM

    This guy will not even play for the raiders this year, PFT knows it thats why they wana hurry and print the story “raiders lineman”
    PFT hates the raiders they are still angry Their Steelers got whipped in the superbowl.

  46. phinfan says: Mar 18, 2011 9:02 AM

    I speak for all Dolphins fans when I say ‘thank god the Dolphins are off the turd list’!!

  47. joepags says: Mar 18, 2011 9:07 AM

    what conduct policy?? we on strike yo!!! got-sta earn some loot somehow!!!

  48. jefedejefes13 says: Mar 18, 2011 9:37 AM

    If kimbo slice and beetle juice from Howard stern mated you would end up with Mario Henderson.

  49. nbcwantsitsmoneyback says: Mar 18, 2011 10:05 AM

    I got to agree with Scooby here. As someone who lives in SWFL as well and If I had lived in Lehigh Acres I’d be carrying a gun too and FT Murder is no better..! For all of you that go on here to hate on the Raiders and trash Mario, he is actually a good man and very religious. Remember his crime is lack of a permit not knocking over a 7-Eleven..!

  50. angrycorgi says: Mar 18, 2011 10:14 AM

    Is it just me, or does this photo make him look a lot like that beetlejuice guy? You know, the height-challenged guy that pops up now and then on TV.

  51. rcgamble says: Mar 18, 2011 10:37 AM

    Plaxico wasn’t smart — after that example, football players without a permit for guns are just plain stupid.

  52. Al Davis says: Mar 18, 2011 10:47 AM

    Why did he admit he had a gun? And why didn’t he put his seatbelt on when he saw the flashing lights in the rearview? Surprized they didn’t get him for a DUI

  53. sdboltaction says: Mar 18, 2011 11:37 AM

    @saswear

    I’m sure they’re glad they’re not Bengals players either.

  54. olcap says: Mar 18, 2011 12:25 PM

    Roggy Goodell says that there will be no suspension, even though Mario was charged with three violations, the most serious of which is the concealed weapons charge.

  55. slugdub says: Mar 22, 2011 11:04 AM

    He leads the team in false starts. get rid of him
