Cyrus Kouandjio found partially clothed, asked cops to shoot him

Bills tackle Cyrus Kouandjio wasn’t at practice Thursday. And that’s the least interesting thing about his day.

According to Vic Carucci of the Buffalo News, Kouandjio was involved in a bizarre incident in which police found him partially clothed and asking police to shoot him.

According to the report, an Erie County Sheriff’s deputy found Kouandjio lying in a field after climbing over an electric fence. It was near the scene of an accident. A police source told the News that Kouandjio yelled, “Shoot me!” as police approached.

It sounds a little like Cardinals pass-rusher Chandler Jones turning up at a Massachusetts police station shirtless last spring, displaying erractic behavior.

“We are aware of the matter involving Cyrus and are carefully monitoring his condition and gathering more information,” the Bills said in a statement. “We don’t have all of the details, so we won’t have any further comment at this time.”

Kouandjio was not arrested, but he was taken to a nearby hospital for observation.

    I’d want someone to shoot me too if I played for the Bills.

    Smoking synthetic weed would be my guess

    As the article points out, he’s not the first NFL player to act erratically in recent years. Unfortunately, concussions can cause long term symptoms. Hope he gets a thorough examination.

    Anyone that will climb over an electric fence, naked, and beg for suicide by cop, I want that guy on my team! Who says the off season is dull?

    Probably Spice, aka synthetic marijuana.

    This why they should just let them smoke real marijuana.

    Which… if you’ve ever tried both… you’ll know one is nothing like the other.

    K2, Spice, or whatever is definitely not marijuana.
    Just another way that government and media try to demonize something that isn’t really that bad.

    Happy 420 ya’ll.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Likely due to the blood redistribution that occurs when people take intoxicants messing with the skins sensory receptors and making the body think it is over heating.

  37. whatjusthapped says: Apr 20, 2017 2:19 PM

    The length to which some players would go to avoid showing up for practice. What’s wrong with calling in with a case of the sniffles?

  38. harrisonhits2 says: Apr 20, 2017 2:21 PM

    The problem is a lot of the stuff sold as “synthetic marijuana” has zero relation to it and no cannabinoids.

    Most are products made in China with all kinds of nasty chemicals tossed in that will either outright kill you or result in crazy behavior like this guy and Chandler Jones.

  39. fishyinalittledishy says: Apr 20, 2017 2:23 PM

    He is lucky those cops were good cops, there are some that might have taken him up on his wishes just because they can.

    “Perfect Patriot”

    SMH the Pats dumped Jones because of that incident. But just keep posting drivel without any actual thought behind it.

  41. pummer says: Apr 20, 2017 2:24 PM

    Man, between this and Seantrel Henderson getting suspended 10 games for using ganja for his Crohn’s Disease, the Bills’ OT room has to be the single position group in the league that has taken the biggest hit (no pun intended) from the No Fun League’s BS marijuana rules….

    Memo to Roger Goodell: support for legalization of marijuana is over 60% in the US. Your players are regularly undergoing brain and physical trauma that is likely partially alleviated by weed more so than anything else out there.

    Goodell and the owners bear their share of the blame for incidents like this in my opinion. Spice is dangerous, and Cyrus wouldn’t be smoking it unless the NFL’s draconian weed prohibition was still in place.

    Everybody cracking jokes and thinks this is funny. This is far from comedic. These men that we enjoyed watching every Sunday for our entertainment are turning up with serious neurological issues and you dummies are joking about it. Really? Judgemental stone throwers….

  55. mattbilleauthor says: Apr 20, 2017 3:18 PM

    PFT lawyer, please clarify if I make a mistake here, but….

    People who smack the NFL for its marijuana rules need to remember the NFL is a nation-wide entity. State laws vary in places with NFL teams, but the drug remains illegal by Federal law, and given that, I don’t see what choice the NFL has about it.

    State laws permitting pot are valid only to the degree that the Federal government has not stepped in and sued them to restore the nationwide effect of Federal laws, which trump (or Trump) state laws. So the local laws are only working because the Obama administration was lenient with them. The Trump administration may not be: the NFL may simply be standing pat while it waits to see what the new policy will be.

  57. pummer says: Apr 20, 2017 3:42 PM

    MattBileAuthor: You are correct that marijuana remains federally illegal, and thus the NFL should be careful not to take any stance to officially endorse it on behalf of the league.

    However, it’s important to distinguish between the illegality of it, and the NFL’s random drug testing (which could easily be abolished).

    Players arent really afraid of getting arrested if they smoke 1 or 2 joints. They are afraid of getting randomly drug tested and losing their careers and millions of dollars.

    The NFL could quietly do away with random piss testing (for marijuana only) and should do so in the next CBA.

    The owners should be ashamed for using this as a chit against the players in negotiations, this should be seen as a basic health and freedom issue.

  58. pummer says: Apr 20, 2017 3:44 PM

    To sum up my point, how pissed off would Robert Kraft and Jerry Jones be if they were subjected to random testing for Viagra? They’d just use Cialis instead… same thing is happening here. It’s silly to demonize the players when the solution is as simple as just not piss testing them for weed

    If more people actually stopped, stood still, put their hands up and followed cops’ instructions — as opposed to mouthing off, acting tough, resisting or trying to elude — it’s likely a whole lot fewer would be shot.

    Chandler Jones “surrendered” to the police on the Sunday of their bye week on Wild Card weekend, not ” last spring”.
