Former Giants safety leads cops on bizarre scooter chase

Let all those among us who haven’t been tasered after a drunken scooter chase in Iowa cast the first stone at Tyler Sash.

According to reports collected by the New York Daily News, the former Giants safety had a wild ride last weekend, and was arrested on charges of public intoxication and interference with official acts.

That’s a fairly boring way of describing what happened in Oskaloosa, Iowa on Friday night/Saturday morning.

(This is starting to sound like a Johnny Cash song.)

Sash was reportedly riding a scooter with its lights off down a major road. He refused orders to stop, led the cops on a four-block chase before jumping off the scooter and running through the woods. They found him behind a tree (amazing that that bit of camouflage didn’t work), but when he didn’t come out, they shot him with the stun gun and dragged him to the┬áMahaska County Jail.

He declined a field sobriety test (as if that’s necessary after a lights-out scooter chase in Iowa), but police noted the smell of alcohol and bloodshot eyes.

Sash was cut after training camp last season, but was suspended four games in 2012 for violating the league’s PED policy, blaming Adderall.

    Yea, Iowa is a wild place, can’t imagine this guy was out of place….and Adderall will do that to ya!

    Drinking + Adderall = No bueno.

    If you can’t outrun the cops, you don’t belong in the league.

    I’d hate to know what drunk football players from Montana would do in the Wacky Hijinks department. Look out !

  6. Chris says: May 14, 2014 8:56 AM

    I guess you can say his coverage in the field (still) isn’t too good.

    Who hand is he trying to shake?

    Classless and takes PEDs?

    He would be a perfect Seahawk.

    Brings to mind images of the movie “Nebraska”.

    He scored more points in my book from this over any play on the field as a Giant.

    Another fine example of a Roger Goodell-era NFL castoff

  13. whatjusthapped says: May 14, 2014 9:31 AM

    I don’t get it, if you are a former NFL Safety and you have at least a 5 yard head start on the cops, there should be no reason to stop and hide behind a tree.

    And I thought the Vikings secondary was slow.

    He probably told the cops they couldn’t see him because he was invisible.

    I’ve been to Oskalooska; riding a scooter around drunk sounds like a normal Saturday night there.

  16. rgwhodey says: May 14, 2014 9:51 AM

    sounds like may have had a few too many at a sprint car race, probably same track Stewart broke his leg at last year…. a lot of scooters driven in oskie

  17. doubleogator says: May 14, 2014 9:51 AM

    another nfl player for the all prison team…

  18. PriorKnowledge says: May 14, 2014 9:54 AM

    and when they finally caught him he yelled, “Now you’re it. You run and I’ll chase you.”

  19. pintadera2000 says: May 14, 2014 10:11 AM

    dont taze me bro!

  20. RexCanCoach says: May 14, 2014 10:16 AM

    Funny how he is hiding just like Eli is hiding from the lawyers on the fake memorabilia he signed and received profits on…

    “Is this Heaven?” “No, it’s Iowa.”

    You can’t make this stuff up.

  23. cliverush says: May 14, 2014 10:32 AM

    He was just looking for his own Field of Dreams.

    Jim Irsay likes this kid’s style.

  25. schmitty2 says: May 14, 2014 10:39 AM

    At least he was smart enough to figure out that him running was faster then his Vespa could go.

  26. ravensfaninflorida says: May 14, 2014 10:41 AM

    Can you say….. “DUH” !!!!!!!

  27. 1rockyracoon says: May 14, 2014 10:54 AM

    He didn’t choose the scooter life. The scooter life chose him.

  28. notthetroll says: May 14, 2014 11:00 AM

    The joys of having one’s deeds immortalized forever on the internet. ha!

    The lights were out and no one was home.

  31. thegreatgabbert says: May 14, 2014 2:46 PM

    They’re trying to make him drop a dime on the other members of the scooter gang.
