Rams corner Trumaine Johnson arrested for DUI

Rams cornerback Trumaine Johnson didn’t have to pay any price for sleeping through his first practice of training camp, but he might not be as lucky after getting arrested on Friday morning.

Johnson was arrested in Missoula, Montana early on Friday morning on a misdemeanor DUI charge, according to KPAX in Missoula. Johnson was booked into the Missoula county jail at 3:05 a.m. and released after posting a $700 bond about an hour later.

Johnson, a third-round pick last April, played in all 16 games and started three as a rookie. He had 31 tackles and a pair of interceptions, ending the year as the team’s nickel back behind starters Janoris Jenkins and Cortland Finnegan.

Jenkins’ red flags got more attention after the draft and when he was benched by coach Jeff Fisher for a game last season, but Johnson also came into the league with some baggage. He was arrested, tased and charged with obstructing a police officer, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest during his time at Montana during a post-game incident in which alcohol was involved.

    NFLPA needs to come to his and some other troubled players’ rescue. Perhaps more money can be withheld to pay for court fines, lawyers and lost wages from these sorts of issues…….

    This “in ….we trust” thing got old really fast.

    Like Chuck Noll used to say, “Too bad we just can’t live their lives for them.”

    Of course the Raider fan would say that, they have nothing to believe in, ever.

    No the NFLPA doesn’t beleive in using the huge giant dues they extract from players to do anything but fight against NFL or protest player punishments as far as I know. It would be nice if they did try to help players that they would publicize that. I’m guessing they don’t…so they don’t.

    Jeff Fisher loves bad boys more than a lot of women do.

    Living in MT for most of my life, gotta say, if there’s anything fun going on in MT, it’s in Missoula. Fun little city.

    “He was arrested, tased and charged with obstructing a police officer, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest during his time ”

    So he really didn’t do anything, then.
