A long run without an arrest by an NFL player came to an end when Vikings cornerback Jabari Price was arrested on DWI charges on December 29.
He wasn’t the only player to find himself in some trouble with the law that day. Jets linebacker Jermaine Cunningham was arrested after police were called to his New Jersey apartment that afternoon.
A spokesman for the Union County Prosecutor’s office didn’t offer many details of what caused the call and said, via NJ.com, that Cunningham was charged with third-degree invasion of privacy under a state law that prohibits the disclosure of sexual images of a person without the individual’s consent. He was also charged with destruction of clothing and illegally transporting a firearm after a .380 handgun was found in his glove compartment during a search performed with Cunningham’s consent.
Cunningham, a former Patriots second-round pick who missed the 2014 season on injured reserve with an Achilles injury, was processed and released without bail. The Jets are aware of the arrest, but neither they nor Cunningham, who will be a free agent in March, had any comment.
