Akeem Jordan arrested for assault and battery

The arrest rate during the lockout has slowed considerably, but weekends in June sometimes entail pro athletes with little to do finding more than a little trouble.  It happened on Sunday in Harrisonburg, Virginia, where Eagles linebacker Akeem Jordan was arrested for assault and battery, according to the Daily News Record.

Per the report, the incident occurred in a parking lot on Evelyn Byrd Avenue in Harrisonburg.  Jordan was released without bail earlier today.

Details are sketchy for now.  Hopefully, he wasn’t waving a knife before accidentally throwing it at someone.

    Ray Lewis was right… he’s always right. And yes, I am partially saying that out of respect for him and partially out of fear of him…

    Released without bail? I doubt it was serious.

    and all this time we thought Ray Lewis was crazy for saying the crime rate will go up.

    How do you manage to get in trouble in Hicksville, VA?

    Ray Lewis was taking about the crime rate among fans going up, not players, ye of little comprehension.

    This is the equivalent to a guy going home needing an aspirin after a night out. No meat to the story.

    I guess it couldn’t have been too much for there to be no bail……Clay Mathews brother may be taking his job if it is though…

    haha the comments would have passed 100 by now if this were a Cowboys player and most would be from Eagles fans.

    Is Ray Lewis really Nostra Damus?

    It’s a college town, some kids stay out there for the summer, who knows though.

    Please reset the days without an arrest clock as today is not over yet.

    “How do you manage to get in trouble in Hicksville, VA?”

    That is the truth man. I went to JMU and Harrisonburg is the middle of nowhere. No strip clubs, gambling joints, nightclubs………NOTHING. It’s more like Hooterville.

    But some morons can find or create trouble just about anywhere.

    I wish he would do some “assault and battery” on the field once in a while. I forgot he was on the team.

    “players are just getting all their arrests out of the way while they have a chance. It’s called: Pre-Planning ” Drew Rosenhaus (fake)

    JMU DUUUUKKKEEEEESSSS – I am sure it was nothing. Harrisonburg can get a bit crazy in the summer. He is a nice dude.

    I’ve been telling you people.

    This dude can HIT.

    In another Eagles-related story, Andy Reid gained 3.7lbs while sleeping.

    he probably punched a pro owner fan lol

    The Eagles defense is a mess. They need to cut their losses, and use free agency to bring in high character, mature veterans.

    Full list of Eagles Free Agents:

  24. eaglesfan290 says: Jun 21, 2011 11:27 AM

    This Eagles Free Agency list is totally wrong Celek is signed through 2017, Harrison isn’t on that list, Rocca, Akers, Gaither, Jordan, Simms, Buckley, Cole. It doesn’t mention that Mike Patterson could be a free agent as well depending on how his contract is ruled on.

    you should fact check that
