Just as the “Days Without an Arrest” meter began to churn back toward double digits, it will be re-set to zero. (And it will be re-set as soon as Rosenthal or someone else with the login info to the arrest meter tool can change it, given that I had to swipe Florio Jr.’s laptop for my trip to New York because the official PFT laptop is on the fritz.)
When the meter goes back to zero (actually, it will show “02”), the reason will have been (yes, I can conjugating good) the Sunday arrest of Bucs receiver Mario Urrutia.
According to the St. Petersburg Times, Urrutia was arrested for a drivers license violation. It’s described as a “violation of a non-resident drivers license,” which sounds as if it could be as innocuous as living in Florida without getting a Florida license, or allowing the out-of-state license to lapse. Either way, it’s a misdemeanor — and it counts as an arrest.
Urrutia, a once-promising prospect at Louisville, has bounced around the league. He was on Tampa’s practice squad in 2009, elevated to the active roster for the final three games of the season. He attended Monday’s OTA session, but he did not participate due to an injury.
