Jerramy Stevens, a former backup tight end for the Buccaneers, was arrested on Thursday in Tampa following a scuffle with two bouncers at a local bar. He was released after posting his $2,500 bond and is now facing a felony battery charge.
According to the police, Stevens became rowdy towards a couple of bouncers when he was asked to leave the bar around 8pm. Not wanting to leave, Stevens decided to punch two of them in the face. That clearly did more harm than good and just like his days in Tampa, he was quickly tackled to the ground until officers arrived. The outcome of the punches resulted in a possible broken jaw for one of the bouncers and just another tally for Stevens.
This arrest is Stevens’ fourth since being drafted back in 2002, with his previous one, a drug related charge, resulting in his release from the Buccaneers. Before that it was: second-degree assault with a deadly weapon, fourth degree assault, sexual assault, a DUI and several reckless driving charges. So basically Jerramy Stevens has spent more time behind bars than he has on the football field.
Somehow, though, all of these arrests have not seemed to dampen his spirit because he still managed to hold his head high while posing for his mug shot. Good for you, Mr. Stevens, don’t let the law bring you down!
