A former Buccaneers guard has allegedly continued what appears to be a pattern of violent behavior off the field.

According to the Tampa Tribune, former Bucs guard Cosey Coleman was arrested on felony charges of  aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and battery.

The 37-year-old Coleman was arrested at his home following an incident outside a sports bar. He was caught on video punching a fellow patron of Ducky’s Sports Lounge. After being taken outside, he stopped his car in the parking lot when he saw the man he punched leaving the bar. He then grabbed a gun from inside the car, cocked it and pointed it toward the man. Security grabbed him to prevent things from escalating further.

Coleman was arrested twice previously in Hillsborough County for domestic violence,  in 2002 and 2008.

A former second-round pick of the Bucs in 2000, Coleman played seven seasons in the NFL, finishing up with the Browns.

    He’s obviously a waste of space. Lock him up and throw the keys away, then he can’t hurt anyone else.

    What the hell is wrong with someone that they might try to shoot someone over a bar scuffle.

    So many people go through their life not punching people in the face and not carrying guns in their car. How can you fix that?

    When does CTE start being invoked as the defense in cases like this? I’m sure it’s coming at some point in the near future.

    Never will understand the morons that make a good life for themselves, but refuse to let go of the hood mentality.
