Police: Green-Beckham tried to flee via a window as cops served search warrant

More information has surfaced about the arrest of former NFL wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham in Springfield, Missouri.

“At approximately 8:30 PM on December 19, 2018 Springfield Police Department Special Response Team served a search warrant,” Springfield Police Public Affairs Officer Jasmine Bailey told PFT via email. “While attempting to make entry, officers observed [Green-Beckham] inside the residence attempting to flee from a window. Officers were able to restrain DGB with handcuffs and found marijuana in his pocket. A search of the residence revealed about one pound of marijuana inside a backpack belonging to DGB along with several vials of THC oil. Inside the residence officers also uncovered about seven more pounds of marijuana. DGB was arrested for drug charges and resisting arrest and Keenen Sharp was arrested for drug charges pertaining to the seven pounds of marijuana.”

This is the latest in a long line of off-field incidents surrounding Green-Beckham, who has twice before been arrested for marijuana, once been arrested for drunk driving and once accused, though not charged, of pushing a woman down a flight of stairs.

Although Green-Beckham is a tremendous athlete and a receiver with talent like Randy Moss or Calvin Johnson, off-field issues overshadowed his football career both in college and in the NFL, and his career now appears to be over.

  1. They are lucky they caught him coming out of the window. If they had to chase him on foot they would likely be SOL. Green-Beckham was a 100 meter champ in high school with a 4.49 forty time coming out of college.

  2. DGB you will be so missed in Philly!

    No Alshon without the DGB show.

    and where this line came from “Although Green-Beckham is a tremendous athlete and a receiver with talent like Randy Moss or Calvin Johnson, off-field issues overshadowed his football career”

    Hard to compare a player that never caught a ball in the NFL to ones who are Pro Bowlers

  3. Oh well, back to the norm with the stories. At least I didn’t miss the “James Conner shares the text Aaron Donald sent him after cancer diagnosis” story that everyone should read. Even if you hate the Rams and Steelers, you should read it.

    states and countries have legalized this product

  5. Green-Beckham was a 100 meter champ in high school with a 4.49 forty time coming out of college.

    The key word there is “was”. Do you really think he could do that now? He’s probably out of shape.

    This is a sad example of wasted talent. This guy probably could have been one of the best WRs in the game today but he just couldn’t seem to grow up and follow ANY rules. What a shame. All he has to do when he wonders why is to look in the mirror.

    7 lbs is a tad over the recreational usage pal.

    If you are a football player getting paid millions of dollars, when the cops come to serve a warrant…STAY

    ———————————————————————————————-

    He’s not a football player making millions of dollars….

  8. Mental and emotional problems people have can’t be resolved by a paycheck. Depression, for example, can’t be cured by a paycheck. So how can you be so arrogant and beat on somebody who failed in life? Because he was playing a ball game he is supposed to live a perfect life? Ask your average churchgoer how living perfectly works out…

  9. The moment anything actually gets legalized, the government then controls it and can arrest you for evading guidelines/permits/taxes. You’re never actually free in this country or own anything of major worth without continuing to pay for the privilege to use your stuff/land.

  10. I agree with the guy who said move to a state where it’s legal, it compounds the stupidity when you can possess the same thing legally in other states. Maybe not the quantity but seriously, from someone that’s collected NFL checks, how can 7lbs of weed really improve your financial stability anyhow

    I’m pretty sure he could still outrun officer Jelly Belly and his partner Maple Bar.

  12. What’s with these guys from Oklahoma and putting their hands on women? Tyreek Hill, Joe Mixon and this DGB guy.

  13. I fail to see the talent comparison with Randy Moss and Calvin Johnson. DGB averaged 34 catches per season in his 2 years in the NFL.

  14. I’ll say it again. Entitlement is a terrible thing. Why do these guys think they deserve to do whatever the hell they want?

  15. If they caught him with seven pounds they are likely going to charge him with distribution. If that’s the case, that’s a LONG prison sentence. Get the wrong judge and he could be spending about a decade in prison.
