The Rams had the weekend off after beating the 49ers on Thursday night, which left time for one of their players to get into some trouble with the law.

Vincent Bonsignore of the Los Angeles Daily News reports that Westbrooks was arrested in Bakersfield, California over the weekend. Per the report, Westbrooks was pulled over by police for speeding and the officers subsequently found a gun registered to someone other than Westbrooks in the car.

Westbrooks has been released on bail and is expected to be at practice with the Rams on Monday.

Westbrooks was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence earlier this year, but the Sacramento County District Attorney chose not to file charges against him in that matter.

  1. Per owners, “These are good guys who do wonderful things in the community”. Having an unregistered gun in possession does wonderful things. Does anyone think he knealed down when he was being arrested?

  2. I believe he was just peacefully protesting against the requirement that a gun be registered in your name, protesting against the limitations placed on his constitutional rights. (the 2nd amendment)

  3. Wow gun charge and domestic violence charge still employed, gotta hate white privilege and being oppressed. This is why your protest mean absolutely nothing

    What company fires people for getting arrested when not on the job and doesn’t affect the employees work?

  5. Why was he arrested? Why wouldn’t he just be ticked and required to appear before the judge! We have the right to bear arms. If he did it illegally thats no reason to be hauled off to jail like a burglar. You would think he was here illegally or something. No, in California, they don’t arrest you for that.

    I’m going to go out on a limb and say that you don’t get out of the house much. Or read a newspaper. Or . . .
    It happens every day.

    Yes, there are jobs that will fire you just for the act of being arrested. There are many, many more jobs that will not.
    I’d say that if you’re employed at a place that will fire you for simply being arrested, then perhaps you need to find a better place of employment.

  8. Lets give the man a chance to go to court before we convict him. Dave Kirtz, lets charge him like Sheriff Arpaio was under the Bush administration, see him get convicted and then lets see if he is pardoned before we talk about privilege.
