Browns director of player personnel Jon Sandusky has been arrested on suspicion of drunk driving.

Sandusky, the son of disgraced former Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky, was arrested in Fargo, North Dakota at 1:50 a.m. today, according to the Forum of Fargo-Moorehead.

According to police, Sandusky was observed making an illegal U-turn and pulled over, and then failed field sobriety tests. He was jailed and posted bail later on Tuesday. Sandusky was believed to be in Fargo to scout players at North Dakota State.

Sandusky is in his second season with the Browns after spending nine seasons working for the Eagles. His father, Jerry Sandusky, is serving a 30- to 60-year prison term for child sexual abuse.

    If Jerry Sandusky was my father, I’d be hammered all the time too. Still, keep it at home,dude.

    Yeah, I’m sure he was a real hazard on the road at 1:50a in Fargo, ND.

    In the old days they would just take your keys, throw them into the woods so you couldn’t find them until the sun came up and you were sober. Now if you have 2 1/2 beers and get in a car you’re going to jail and your life in ruined for 2 years and if you’re famous or the son of someone famous your name is plastered all over the internet.

    Maybe there is a common sense medium in between those two, what do you say?

    I can understand his reasoning for wanting to drink

  4. sonoco says: Oct 8, 2013 9:48 PM

    I glad nobody was hurt. That said, if I was that creep’s son I might drink a little too. I hope he can move on from this successfully . . . and all that other “stuff”.

    Im not touching this story.. its still too young.

  6. milwaukeeguy says: Oct 8, 2013 9:50 PM

    In all fairness to Jon, bar time is considered rush hour in Fargo.

  7. bringbackkosar says: Oct 8, 2013 9:50 PM

    too easy, who else wants this one

  8. @Cereal_22 says: Oct 8, 2013 9:50 PM

    Gotta smarten up but this poor SOB obviously has a lot on his mind.

  9. omniscient48 says: Oct 8, 2013 9:51 PM

    Scouting players in North Dakota would drive me to drink also.

    You got to be kidding me!

    Sandusky, browns, and DUI

    Great headline

  12. gcbean says: Oct 8, 2013 10:02 PM

    Boozin and losin.

  13. howiefeltersnatch says: Oct 8, 2013 10:02 PM

    Good lord, I’m sorry, but that guy’s kid is an exec with my team? And they want to trade Josh Gordon? Time for the torches and pitchforks guys.

  14. oldcracker says: Oct 8, 2013 10:04 PM

    Did Sandusky and Heckert ever work together in Philadelphia? That must have been some front office under Banner’s watch.

  15. sellout1983 says: Oct 8, 2013 10:12 PM

    Good lord, is that his mug shot?

  16. f1restarter says: Oct 8, 2013 10:15 PM

    If Jerry Sandusky was my father, I’d be drunk all the time too.

  17. rajbais says: Oct 8, 2013 10:15 PM

    And this guy works with a man who said that change was needed at Penn State, Michael Lombardi.

    I’m rooting for Lombardi, but this team needs to have a TV show “Rotten in Cleveland”.

    No Valerie Bertinelli or other cougars in this show.

  18. toonloonboon says: Oct 8, 2013 10:21 PM

    in his defense, he used to get phucked in the azz as a kid.

  19. coltzfan166 says: Oct 8, 2013 10:39 PM

    There weren’t any kids with him, were there?

  20. fortyoz420 says: Oct 8, 2013 10:43 PM

    If jerry was my dad I would be drunk too

  21. jlinatl says: Oct 8, 2013 10:47 PM

    … and i guess that was your accomplice in the woodchipper?

    nobody should have to go thru what his father’s victims did and nobody should have to go thru what his father’s family did either.

    I really hope this was a stupid mistake and that he’s not all screwed up.

  22. possumsauce says: Oct 8, 2013 10:48 PM

    Yo Jon,

    A couple of hundred bucks and a trip to chancery court can get you a new surname, man. Just do it.

    While he was being arrested did he blame his o-line for not being able to pass the FST?

  26. anarchopurplism says: Oct 8, 2013 11:02 PM

    Isn’t a DUI in Fargo basically like getting a parking ticket on New York City?

    I thought the extra-wide lanes on their dirt roads were a feature for all the buzzed drivers.

    Lets go to Dempsey’s baby!!!! Woot!!!!

    You realize they have won the last two FCS nationals championships right? You must be a Browns scout as well.

    Now he has two reasons to change his name.

  30. northstarnic says: Oct 8, 2013 11:51 PM

    Can’t blame the guy for having a drinking problem.

  31. mylionsroaring says: Oct 8, 2013 11:57 PM

    Not the type of guy I want around my kids

  32. Rick Spielman is a Magician says: Oct 9, 2013 12:14 AM

    At least he’s not the worst person in his family.

  33. theverifiedtruth says: Oct 9, 2013 12:18 AM

    Player gets a DUI and he’s immediately deemed a scumbag.

    Exec gets a DUI and out comes the excuses.

    “Thanks for ruining our name and my life DAD!!”

    Way to go Jon, and tarnish the family name.

  36. scothawk says: Oct 9, 2013 1:11 AM

    Did the police confirm if the DUI involved a motor vehicle or a personnel decision?

  37. maiphatdong says: Oct 9, 2013 1:36 AM

    this guy could punch the pope in the face and still wouldn’t be able to one up his dad.

  38. asublimeday says: Oct 9, 2013 2:17 AM

    It’s unfortunate that his father was mentioned here. It’s not his sons fault that his father is a monster, and it’s unfair to tie the two together in every story about either.

  39. joetoronto says: Oct 9, 2013 3:27 AM

    He should give the Bronco’s a call, he’ll fit right in there.

    Haha if I lived in the home of Ariel Castro I would drink a well.

    I remember when NFL news was about who was traded and who was injured. Now there are reports of admin personnel who get in trouble. Thanks.

    Fargo, the Factory of Sadness, and the name Sandusky is like the trifecta of depression.

  45. krayzie300 says: Oct 10, 2013 3:43 AM

    I live in Fargo, near the NDSU campus. DUIs in Fargo are very common especially around 2am which is bar close up here. we have 3 colleges in this city and the cops are out thick from mid-3am currently they have approved overtime for officers strictly for DUI Patrol. and the sad thing is Sandusky according to news reposrts around here blew a 0.09. meaning for a guy of that size prob had 5-6 drinks and most likely felt fine. .08 BAC is easy to do, he shoulda called a cab for sure, but the cops have a hard on for DUI stops up here ever since a local judge had has daughter sadly killed by a drunk driver a few years back. I know a person who blew .06 (under the legal limit) and they still gave her APC (Actual Physical Control) because they figured that within 30 minutes she would have blown .08 with the intent of or operating a motor vehicle. She beat it in court. but just an example of how anal they are around here
