Raheem Brock was busted for DUI Saturday

KCPQ in Seattle and the Seattle Times both report that Seahawks defensive lineman Raheem Brock was arrested for driving under the influence in Seattle Saturday morning.

According to Washington State Patrol public information officer Julie Startup, Brock was released by the arresting officer without being formally booked into jail.  The arrest occurred at 3:00 a.m Saturday, presumably after a Friday night out on the town.

Brock has appeared in all nine of the Seahawks’ games, compiling 13 tackles and three sacks.  He was allowed to play Sunday against the Cardinals.

This is believed to be Brock’s first arrest as a pro.  He is a ninth-year veteran.

Titans rookie Howard pleads no contest to assault

On Tuesday, Titans rookie defensive lineman David Howard entered a plea of no contest to a charge of misdemeanor assault.  Howard, a product of Brown University, was arrested in Rhode Island in April of 2009 for allegedly beating up a patron at a bar for which he bounced.

According to Howard’s attorney, the charge will be expunged from the rookie’s record if he stays out of trouble for a year.  
Howard was the 241st overall pick in April’s draft.  The Titans almost certainly were aware of the incident before selecting him.  It occurred before Howard entered the NFL, and is unlikely to affect his playing status this season.

Police say Cowboys FB Anderson brandished gun

An initial report about Cowboys fullback Deon Anderson’s Tuesday morning arrest made the situation sound relatively minor.

Anderson has much bigger problems than unpaid traffic tickets.  
Addison, Texas police have issued a warrant for Anderson’s arrest on a new charge of deadly conduct.  The Cowboys’ fourth-year lead blocker allegedly pulled a gun on a man following an altercation at the BlackFinn restaurant.
The Dallas Morning News has the police report.

Report: Onterrio Smith arrested

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.

Former Ravens lineman Brown arrested

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.
