FINALLY, A COWBOY GETS PINCHED

Well, it’s finally happened.
After nearly two years of tracking all arrests of NFL players and club employees, a member of the Dallas Cowboys has been busted.
Specifically, defensive end Anthony Spencer was arrested in Indianapolis on Sunday, and charged with public intoxication and disorderly conduct.
Though the Cowboys have plenty of locker-room miscreants and problem children, they have done a great job at staying out of trouble.
Of course, given the fact that former Cowboys cornerback Pacman Jones wasn’t patted down and cuffed after getting in an altercation with one of his 24-hour-a-day babysitters in October, it’s possible that incidents that might have resulted in an arrest anywhere else ended with no charges in Dallas, out of deference to the home team.
Spencer and his agent, Matthew Millhouse, reportedly tried to bribe the proprietors of the Have A Nice Day Cafe to remain open.  It’s unclear whether Millhouse, who is not an NFLPA-certified contract advisor, was arrested as well.

  1. just in case he shows up here :
    VOX :
    why did the Cowboys kick a field goal @ 44-3 & what was your reaction?

  2. There is nothing wrong with public intoxication or disorderly conduct.
    Sincerely,
    Carolina Panthers fans

  3. Key point, this proves that Cowboys players do get into these kinds of incidents, but when the players arent in Dallas, the cops are less inclined to cut them a break, lol

  4. Now Vox Veritas can’t brag about how the Cowboys are “never” actually in trouble. What will be his crutch in arguments next?

  5. Well now we know what the lead story will be on SportsCenter tonite……
    I wonder if they will devote the whole show to it or maybe sneek some playoff hilites in.

  6. “Of course, given the fact that former Cowboys cornerback Pacman Jones wasn’t patted down and cuffed after getting in an altercation with one of his 24-hour-a-day babysitters in October, it’s possible that incidents that might have resulted in an arrest anywhere else ended with no charges in Dallas, out of deference to the home team.” – It’s a national conspiracy to keep these guys out of trouble… of course, it would seem, many people hate the Cowboys.

  7. Ask Irvin, Michael, even HOF Cowboys do get popped in Dallas…Prisons and jails in Texas are so full, they write tickets for misdemeanors now…most of the time, cops just tell you to leave and go home…take a cab if applicable…

  8. Maybe Spencer is actually a Giants fan. Really though, I have tried bribing a bar to stay open later, didnt realize you can get arrested for throwing the bartender a few bucks to get a couple of extra drinks.

  9. Man, it amazes me how much people hate the cowboys. Not every player lives in dallas. The off-season is long and players travel to various cities for training, self-promotion, or maybe even live somewhere else during the off-season. This one incident proves that dallas police let cowboy players off the hook? What a ridiculous conclusion. The last cowboy i can remember getting in trouble with the law (excluding the whole t.o. i tried to kill myself fiasco) was a DB who had a hit and run. That was probably in 03 or so.
    Instead of being glad you finally get to report on a cowboy arrest, how about you congratulate a team for keeping players out of trouble from the law. Tank Johnson had repeated run ins with the law, but when he came to dallas, he didn’t get into any trouble. Maybe the cowboys are doing something right. Too bad they bit off more than they can chew with pacman though.

  10. well its not like carrying a gun to a club and shooting yourself in the process, but hey its the Cowboys, so everybody will fire away!

  11. “Well, it’s finally happened.

    Well, I guess Jerry Jones doesn’t have to release Pacman Jones now. Jerry Jones was only doing this because PFT keeps track of this outlaw behavior.

  12. Wow, busted for trying to bribe a cafe manager to keep the place open. That’s hardcore. Next you’ll be telling me that he wanted instant grits instead of homemade.
    “it’s possible that incidents that might have resulted in an arrest anywhere else ended with no charges in Dallas, out of deference to the home team”
    You know better than that, Florio. Stop being pathetic. This is the city that busted Mike Irvin, remember? Holy crap, a Dallas cop was busted for trying to contract a hit on him!
    And the one and done Giants STILL have more turd points than the rest of the division combined…
    …or at least they will after Plastico is convicted of all charges.

  13. Um, what do you mean by “bribe” them to stay open? Like they “bribed” them in exchange for dinner and drinks? Payments to businesses in exchange for goods and services are the standard way our economy works.

    Damn, Vox – when it rains, it pours. First, 44-6, then “Warrior Princess” Romo faints in the shower, then Skeletor takes his team “to the woodshed,” then PacTurd gets cut, then your hometown Eagles advance to the NFC Championship, then your “no Cowboy ever got a Florio Turd Point” argument goes up in flames. All of this couldn’t happen to a better douchebag. When your up on that bridge, don’t listen to any of those first responders – just jump.

  15. “Well, it’s finally happened.

    So, by way of his own statement, Florio is so pathetic that he has been watching for a cowboys bust to pop up on the radar so that he could pounce on it as a news item?
    Now what does that suggest? Amongst other things it is a self portrait of a very small man with an axe to grind with a bigger world and that little man is Mike Florio.

    Lousy player on a classless and clueless franchise. ”
    This coming from an Eagles fan. A fan of the same franchise that still hasn’t figured out how to win a championship. Wouldn’t that define “clueless”?

    Dude, give it a rest. I guess when you are a fan of a team that CAN’T win championships you gotta have something to hang on to…..

    “pretty sad that you are rooting for someone on a team to get in trouble. ”
    that was the first thing I noticed too.
    what the hell Mike? so, instead of congratulating a team for staying out of trouble you’d rather be glad that they “finally” (your word there) have hit your pathetic little “turd watch list”?
    do you know how sad that is?
    I’m still laughing at Philly fans. They’ve never won ANYTHING and yet they still want to bash cowboy fans. LOL you can’t make this up.
