An initial report about Cowboys fullback Deon Anderson’s Tuesday morning arrest made the situation sound relatively minor.
Cowboys fullback Deon Anderson was arrested Tuesday morning on traffic warrants.
Onterrio Smith, the ex-Minnesota Vikings running back whose promising NFL career was cut short in large part because of drug problems, was reportedly jailed last night on drug charges.
The Sacramento Bee reports that Smith was a passenger in a car that was pulled over for speeding on Interstate 80 in Truckee, California, at around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday. The driver was arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence, and Smith was arrested after a routine check revealed that he had an outstanding warrant from Sacramento for possession of a controlled substance.
Smith’s bail was set at $15,000.
Smith had 107 carries for 579 yards as a rookie in 2003 and 124 carries for 544 yards in 2004, but he never played in an NFL game after being suspended for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy during the 2005 off-season. He is best remembered as the player who was stopped in the Minneapolis-Saint Paul International Airport with dried urine and a device called the Original Whizzinator.
Whoa, former Raven and Browns offensive lineman Orlando “Zeus” Brown apparently has a far different idea of what a “tour” consists of than the normal person.
Brown was arrested Friday for allegedly breaking into the Cockeysville, Maryland home of his ex-wife while she was away on a five-week vacation. Brown was charged with third-degree burglary and malicious destruction of property valued at less than $500.
Mira Brown accused her ex-husband of breaking in while she was away for five weeks in July and August. She alleges he “broke the front story door, tore down the basemen curtains, defecated in a basemen toilet and ransacked her closet.” (At least he didn’t ransack her toilet and defecate in her closet, right Dookie?)
Mira Brown said she received two texts from Orlando Brown’s phone which said he “toured” the house while she was away.
Brown, you may remember, was the Cleveland Browns player struck in the eye by an officials flag causing injury and a Brown meltdown in which he shoved the official.
