The legal system continues to get a major workout from the NFL, its current players, and its former players.
The latest development involving a pigskin and a gavel comes from Florida, where former NFL receiver Bobby Sippio faces charges of kidnapping, attempted murder, and more, according to Orlando Sentinel.
Sippio, who bounced around several rosters before playing in nine games for the Chiefs in 2007, currently plays for the AFL’s Orlando Predators. Earlier this week, Sippio allegedly took the nickname a bit too literally. Sergio Moore, 27, claims that Sippio and another man kidnapped him, beat him, and threatened to kill him.
Moore, whose sister dates Sippio, specifically claims that Sippio and Santana Coats picked Moore up at his apartment Thursday night at 11:00 p.m. ET. Moore believed he would be helping the men move furniture. Instead, Moore says they allegedly threatened him with a gun, held him against his will, and broke his nose. Sippio, 31, and Coats have been arrested on charges of attempted murder, armed robbery, aggravated battery, and kidnapping.
Most recently, Sippio was in training camp with the Lions. He also has played in the UFL.
