Chargers linebacker Thomas Keiser arrested

Celebrating a playoff berth has apparently proved to be a bad idea for San Diego Chargers linebacker Thomas Keiser.

According to Teri Figueroa and Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune, Keiser was arrested at a restaurant in the Gaslamp Quarter of San Diego on a misdemeanor battery charge after an altercation Sunday night.

Keiser was arrested after police were called to break up a fight between Keiser and another man.

“We’re aware of the issue involving Thomas,” the Chargers said Monday night in a statement to the Union-Tribune. “We’ll continue to monitor the situation and let the legal process run its course.”

The Chargers had just wrapped up a playoff berth earlier in the day with an overtime victory over the Kansas City Chiefs. San Diego will play at Cincinnati this weekend in the Wild Card round of the playoffs. Keiser is expected to play for the Chargers.

Keiser has 4.5 sacks, 21 tackles and an interception this year in 12 games for the Chargers.

    Man. We are never going to get to double digit days without an arrest again.

    Not good, but not nearly as bad as Vincent Jackson being pulled over by police on his way to the playoff game with the Jets in 2010, having his SUV impounded because he didn’t have a valid driver’s license, and having to have Philip Rivers come pick him up and take him to the stadium. Talk about not being totally focused on winning.

    The biggest crime he committed was hanging out at Barley Mash in Gaslamp. Place is lame. a real tourist trap.

    No real cops lock up guys for throwing punches at one another….they kick both of them in the behind and tell them to go home. What is this wussified country coming to?

    Maybe with yet another Steelers fan (that clearly didn’t own a mirror to see the pockmarked 0-4 start) whining that the Chiefs didn’t play their starters?

    I think that’s our first time on the blotter since VJ’s second or third DUI (also a playoff celebration).

    Keister has pretty good stats for a non-starter no-namer. I hope he didn’t just lose his job.

    Go CHARGERS!!!

    Primed and ready for the playoffs…

    Since it was a “battery” charge and not just a simple DUI, Keiser is now on the radar screen of the vikqueens as a potential trade target.

    He should have just told the cops about the Chargers storied history and their empty trophy case.

    I’m sure he would have gotten off.

    Choo choo!

    The other guy told him his team will be one and done in the playoffs LMAO

    All I want to know is who won the fight!?

    Finally, a chance for Marvin Lewis to win a playoff game. The Chargers backed into the playoffs by other teams losing. Now the big question is will Phillip Rivers and Andy Dalton set the playoff record for the most total interceptions in a game? I’m not sure what the record is but these two have a very good chance to smash it.

    Paid off refs

    No way!! An NFL player arrested. I am shocked. What is this world coming to?

    Not very smart for a Stanford guy. Maybe the other guy went to Cal.

    You clearly have no clue about Rivers’ INT-to-TD ratio.
