from cbssports.com:



Late last week the Broward County Sheriff's Office confirmed to CBSSports.com that an arrest warrant was issued for free-agent wideout Chad Johnson (née Ochocinco) after he violated his probation stemming from a domestic violence arrest last summer.

Johnson turned himself in and has now been arrested by the sheriff, a search of the Broward County arrest database confirms.

Lest you think it could be a different Chad Johnson, a relatively sharp-looking mugshot confirms it is the former wideout:






Johnson pleaded no contest to a domestic violence charge last summer and was given probation.

The wideout, who hasn't played in the NFL since a disappointing season with the Patriots in 2011, was tweeting throughout the time when he was rumored to be on the lam.

His account (@ochocinco) has been inactive since May 16, however, probably as a smart result of wanting to limit putting anything public out there.

Seahawks QB Josh Portis arrested on suspicion on DUI

Posted by Curtis Crabtree on May 20, 2013, 9:24 PM EDT

The Seattle Seahawks continue to deal with issues that will potentially affect the availability of their players on the field.

According to Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times, Portis was arrested and charged with a gross misdemeanor on May 5 after being pulled over on a freeway just outside of Seattle. The officer noted a “strong odor of intoxicants coming from the vehicle” and Portis registered reading of .092 and .078 in tests following the stop. Washington’s legal limit is .08.

Portis was released from the Seahawks practice squad last November before being re-signed by the team in April. Portis has not played in a regular season since signing with the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent in 2011.

Portis was on the practice field and participated in the team’s first OTA workout on Monday. He faces a battle with Brady Quinn and recently signed Jerrod Johnson for possibly one or two roster spots at the quarterback position. Seattle only kept two quarterbacks on the roster last season.

Running back Marshawn Lynch still has a pending DUI case in California pending from an arrest last year. The case is set to go to trial in June.

Report: Jones-Drew not charged yet with battery, may never be
Posted by Mike Florio on May 28, 2013, 3:40 PM EDT

Contrary to a report appearing earlier today in TMZ, Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew has not been charged with battery.

Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports that formal charges have not yet been filed against Jones-Drew, and that formal charges may not be filed against Jones-Drew.

“He’s not getting arrested,” an unnamed source told O’Halloran regarding Jones-Drew.

TMZ reported earlier today that Jones-Drew already has been charged with striking a security guard.

Whatever the situation, the Jaguars have issued the perfunctory non-statement statement.  “We are aware of the situation regarding Maurice Jones-Drew and are in the process of gathering more information,” the team said.  “Due to this being a legal matter, we’ll have no further comment at this time.”

Cody Grimm arrested again for public intoxication
Posted by Darin Gantt on May 29, 2013, 6:17 AM EDT

So much for that quiet Memorial Day weekend.

Buccaneers safety Cody Grimm was arrested in Virginia on public intoxication charges, his second such arrest since March.

According to Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times, Grimm was arrested at 5:30 a.m. Sunday at a hotel in Leesburg, Va., where he was attending a wedding. Obviously it was quite a reception.

While that charge is a misdemeanor, it could create a bigger problem, since he was arrested in Christianburg, Va., on March 10 for the same charge. He was given a deferred disposition in that case, which would have allowed that charge to be dropped under certain conditions. I’m not the lawyer in this operation, but just guessing that getting arrested for the same thing two months later was not one of those conditions.

Coach Greg Schiano said in a statement from the team he was “disappointed.”

“Our players know our expectations on and off the field and we take these matters very seriously,’’ Schiano said. “When we feel we have obtained all the necessary information, we will act accordingly.”

Grimm wasn’t on stable footing with the Bucs anyway, having taken a pay cut this offseason to remain.

Saints WR Joe Morgan busted for DUI
Posted by Mike Florio on May 29, 2013, 10:26 AM EDT

So much for a quiet Memorial Day weekend.

While the Maurice Jones-Drew situation has not resulted in battery charges, news has emerged of a pair of arrests from the three-day holiday.

First, it was Bucs safety Cody Grimm, arrested Sunday for public intoxication. Now, it’s Saints receiver Joe Morgan.

According to the New Orleans Times-Picayune, Morgan was arrested Saturday for DUI.

Found asleep behind the wheel of his car, Morgan failed a field-sobriety test and later generated a blood-alcohol content of 0.218 percent, more than twice the legal limit of 0.08 percent.

Morgan, who is expected to be the team’s No. 3 wideout in 2013, was released later in the day on $1,150 bond. Both the team and Morgan declined to comment.

Bears’ Evan Rodriguez arrested for second time this offseason
Posted by Michael David Smith on May 31, 2013, 4:12 PM EDT

Bears fullback Evan Rodriguez was arrested for drunk driving early this morning.

Chicago sports radio station WSCR reports that Rodriguez was ticketed for driving under the influence, speeding and improper lane usage after he was pulled over on I-90 at 3:30 a.m.

The Bears have released the standard boilerplate statement that teams usually issue about player arrests about being aware of the situation and gathering more information.

This is the second time this offseason that Rodriguez has been arrested. In March, he was arrested in Miami for resisting an officer. That charge was later dropped.

A fourth-round draft pick out of Temple last year, Rodriguez played in 12 games as a rookie, starting five.

Half of Rams’ 10-man 2012 draft class has gotten in trouble
Posted by Mike Florio on June 1, 2013, 2:32 PM EDT

As former Titans coach Jeff Fisher tries to bring the same consistency in the standings to St. Louis, he’s well on his way to replicating one of his more overlooked accomplishments in Houston and Tennessee.

Rounding up problem children.

The well-respected coach takes more than his share of chances on players with less-than-respectable character traits.  It’s a Machiavellian mindset that trickled down to former Titans defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz, who has had plenty of dice rolls on bad guys come up craps during his time in Detroit.

Of Fisher’s first draft class in St. Louis, half of the 10 players taken already have found trouble at the NFL level.  Second-round cornerback Janoris Jenkins, a known risk who slid out of round one, was suspended by the team for one game last year.  Second-round running back Isaiah Pead, who slid to third on the depth chart last season, will miss the first game of the 2013 campaign due to a suspension under the league’s substance-abuse policy.

Cornerback Trumaine Johnson, a third-round pick in 2013, was arrested for DUI in March.  Per one league source, Johnson had been removed from multiple draft boards last year after being suspended from his college team due to an alleged frat-house non-food fight, and for being arrested and Tasered in October 2011 after allegedly resisting arrest.

Receiver Chris Givens, a fourth-round pick, was suspended by the team last year, and guard Rokevious Watkins, a fifth-round pick, recently received a one-game suspension under the league’s substance-abuse policy — which as with Pead implies some sort of legal violation relating to one of the substances covered by the policy.

Also, the team’s two seventh-round picks last year, while staying out of trouble in the NFL, had incidents off the field at lower levels of the sport.  Linebacker Aaron Brown was accused of misdemeanor assault while at Hawaii, and running back Daryl Richardson admits that he “got into a little trouble” in high school.

It all creates a strange disconnect for which Fisher rarely is questioned.  He’s a member of the league’s Competition Committee, and few in the media ever tie the propensity to pick college players of less-than-ideal character back to Fisher.  In contrast, whenever the Seahawks have a guy get suspended, people presume that coach Pete Carroll has responsibility, directly or indirectly, for the situation.

G.M. Les Snead, while not believed to have final control over the roster (especially since Fisher was hired before Snead), also deserves a mention on this point.  Snead came from the Falcons, where G.M. Thomas Dimitroff frowns on taking character risks.  However, Snead and Fisher have been smiling at their opportunities to get talented players later than they otherwise would have been available, but for the off-field issues.

It continued this year with linebacker Alec Ogletree.  Of the board in Dallas and presumably elsewhere, the Rams took him at the bottom of round one despite a suspension at Georgia and a pre-draft DUI.

Our goal isn’t to cause trouble for Fisher or Snead, both of whom we respect and like.  But the reality is that they have taken plenty of chances on players with issues unrelated to football ability, and for reasons neither known nor apparent the dynamic rarely has been mentioned, or even noticed, by the media.

More legal woes for Mike Goodson
Posted by Darin Gantt on June 1, 2013, 3:57 PM EDT

When it rains, it pours, and at the moment, Mike Goodson is getting soaked.

According to Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork.com, the troubled Jets running back has more problems than the recent gun and drug arrests, as he’s now being hit with another paternity suit in Houston by a woman demanding child support for four children.

According to court documents, Ashlee Wilson is suing for retroactive child support, lump-sum child support and health insurance.

She had filed suit against him in 2010 for support of three children, but never pursued it, without providing a reason why not. She was living with Goodson’s mother at the time. Wilson and the four children now live with her parents.

Goodson’s no stranger to such actions, as he’s had other paternity suits filed against him, and has been sued by a jewelry store for not paying a $56,000 bill, and has been evicted twice for unpaid rent and has failed to make car payments.

It’s not necessarily a surprise to see a new suit, with his name in the news (and the three-year, $6.9 million contract with the Jets generally mentioned therein).

Goodson’s a talented player, but his reputation for irresponsibility was well-known and there long before he was drafted in the fourth round of the 2009 NFL Draft by the Panthers. And now that those problems are catching up to him, the Jets have to be wondering why they took a chance on him.

from espn.go.com:

A jury on Monday convicted former Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Milton Bradley of abusing his estranged wife.

Bradley, 35, was convicted after a four-week trial of nine misdemeanor counts, including four counts of spousal battery, one count of assault with a deadly weapon and one count of making criminal threats, Los Angeles city attorney's spokesman Frank Mateljan said. He faces up to 7½ years in jail at his sentencing, which is scheduled for July 2.

Prosecutors said Bradley threatened and attacked his wife five times in 2011 and 2012. The two have been married for five years and have two children together, but are separated and in the middle of a contentious divorce.

In one incident, Bradley pushed his wife against a wall and choked her after she asked him to stop smoking marijuana in front of their children and wanted his friends to leave their home, police and prosecutors said.

"Domestic violence will not be tolerated, regardless of perceived celebrity or notoriety, and violators will be held fully accountable for their actions," City Attorney Carmen Trutanich said in a statement.

A phone message left after business hours for Bradley's attorney Harland Braun was not immediately returned.

Bradley played 11 years with the Dodgers, Montreal Expos, Cleveland Indians, Oakland Athletics, San Diego Padres, Texas Rangers, Chicago Cubs and Seattle Mariners.

His playing history was marred by several confrontational outbursts. The Dodgers traded him to Oakland in 2005 after he threw a water bottle at fans and had a clubhouse run-in with a reporter. During his brief term with Seattle, he was suspended for a game for bumping an umpire and ejected for arguing a called third strike.

He's been a free agent since the Mariners released him in 2011.

Indians closer Chris Perez investigated for drug possession

Aaron Gleeman

Jun 5, 2013, 11:09 AM EDT

Indians closer Chris Perez, who’s currently on the disabled list with a shoulder injury, is being investigated for drug possession in the Cleveland suburb of Rocky River, according to Zack Meisel of MLB.com.

No further details are available yet, but Indians general manager Chris Antonetti issued the following statement:

Earlier this morning we were made aware of a situation involving Chris Perez that occurred yesterday in Rocky River. We have talked with Chris and are currently in the process of gathering additional information.

In addition to his shoulder injury Perez recently made headlines for deleting his Twitter account in response to negative interactions following poor appearances for the Indians. Before going on the disabled list he had a 4.32 ERA and 18/10 K/BB ratio in 16.2 innings, serving up four homers and a .492 slugging percentage while blowing two of his eight save chances.

UPDATE: Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports that no arrest has been made yet and it’s an ongoing investigation, which is why police have yet to comment.

an update on Chad Johnson

 

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Former NFL star Chad Johnson will serve 30 days in jail after violating probation in a domestic violence case involving his then-wife, TV reality star Evelyn Lozada.

A plea deal that called for no jail time fell apart Monday. Broward Judge Kathleen McHugh rejected it after Johnson playfully slapped his attorney on the behind in court. McHugh says Johnson wasn't taking things seriously enough, even after he apologized. McHugh also extended Johnson's probation for three months.




Johnson said in an interview with ESPN's "First Take" last Friday that the violation occurred because of a "miscommunication" with his probation officer. During the interview, Johnson said he understands he cannot afford any transgressions, big or small, and that he's willing to accept any consequences.

"I'm going to be OK," Johnson said. "I'm OK now, but I put myself in this situation and I have to deal with everything. With life, I'm at peace with everything. I would love to finish my career off the right way. If it happens, I'm not sure. But I would like to."

The 35-year-old formerly known as Chad Ochocinco pleaded no contest to head-butting Lozada during an argument in August. The "Basketball Wives" star immediately filed for divorce after barely a month of marriage.

Johnson was subsequently released by the Miami Dolphins. He previously played for the Cincinnati Bengals and New England Patriots.

CLEVELAND -- Cleveland Indians two-time All-Star closer Chris Perez and his wife pleaded not guilty Monday to misdemeanor possession charges after marijuana was mailed to their home in their dog's name.

The pleas were sent by fax to suburban Rocky River Municipal Court by their attorneys.

The faxed pleas included a request that a requirement that the couple appear in person for a June 19 arraignment be dropped.

Police said they were tipped off by postal inspectors to suspicious packages mailed to the Perez home and arranged a delivery last Tuesday under surveillance. Police say Melanie Perez accepted two packages.

Authorities say Melanie Perez, whose maiden name is Baum, told the undercover officer delivering the packages that they were intended for her dog, named Brody. The package was addressed to Brody Baum.

According to investigative reports, Perez told drug agents with a search warrant that he had pot for personal use and pointed out two jars. Asked about any drugs or weapons by officers who went to the Perez home, Perez "volunteered to direct the officers to the location of it," an investigative report said.

The 27-year-old Perez and his 29-year-old wife were charged Friday with misdemeanor drug possession involving just over one-third of a pound of marijuana. Perez and his wife were released on personal bond.

Outside legal experts say the charge typically is handled like a traffic ticket and might result in a fine.

Under the drug agreement between Major League Baseball and its players' association, marijuana offenses generally result with the player undergoing a treatment program rather than discipline.

Perez has six saves this season but is on the disabled list with an injured right shoulder.

Colts’ Joe Lefeged arrested on gun charges
Posted by Michael David Smith on June 29, 2013, 11:57 AM EDT

Colts safety Joe Lefeged was arrested overnight in Washington and taken to D.C. jail.

The Indianapolis Star reports that an employee of the jail confirmed that Lefeged was arrested, but no other information about what led to the arrest or what charges he is facing are currently available.

Lefeged grew up in the D.C. suburb of Gaithersburg, Maryland and played his college football at Rutgers. He has played in all 32 games since joining the Colts as an undrafted free agent in 2011.

A Colts spokesman said the team had no information about Lefeged’s arrest.

UPDATE 2:30 p.m. ET: D.C. Police say Lefeged faces charges including carrying a pistol without a license and possession of an unregistered firearm and ammunition. He was a passenger in a car that fled from police after a traffic stop, and when police eventually stopped the car, they found a gun they believe belongs to Lefeged.

Milton Bradley gets 32 months for spousal battery

Matthew Pouliot

Jul 3, 2013, 12:40 AM EDT

A month after being convicted of abusing his wife, Milton Bradley was sentenced to 32 months behind bars on Tuesday.

Bradley, who faced up to 7 1/2 years, was convicted of nine misdemeanor counts after a four-week trial. Four of those counts were for spousal battery, and one was for assault with a deadly weapon. He threatened and attacked his wife five times between 2011 and ’12. The two are now in the midst of divorce proceedings.

Some tried to portray the much-maligned Bradley as more misunderstood than criminal during his tumultuous baseball career, but the lie was put to that after he his talent dwindled and he was forced out of the league. His career ended in 2011 after he hit .218 with two homers in 28 games for the Mariners. Overall, he hit .271/.364/.440 in 1,042 games over 12 seasons. He had his best year with the Rangers in 2008, when he led the AL with a .999 OPS in 126 games.

Bradley remains free on bond after appealing last month’s conviction. His next court date is in August.
