Over the years, Jerramy Stevens mug shot photos have made their way onto the pages of newspapers and websites and after another incident, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers player was cheesing for another one.
Stevens, notorious for ending up in cuffs, was busted after police in a Tampa area pulled him over for playing loud music. After doing a search of the vehicle, they found 38 grams of cannabis tucked away inside.
Stevens was cuffed, booked and charged with possession of marijuana with intent to sell, possession of marijuana, and possession of drug paraphernalia which counts for two felony charges and one misdemeanor charge for all of you keeping score at home.
Although this is Stevens first time being featured in our Jocks Behind Bars, it is hardly the first time he ever cheesed for a mugshot. In fact his legal troubles date back to 1998 when he was busted for second-degree assault with a deadly weapon and 4th-degree assault. Toss in the sexual assault arrest, three reckless driving charges including a hit-and-run on an old folks home and one “extreme DUI” and you get the clear picture of the guy.
With that laundry lists of arrests, don’t expect to see him model for the cover boy for the NFL role model poster.
At the age of 30, this backup tight end has probably seen his last days in a Bucs jersey and more than likely his last days in the NFL. With NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell cracking down on tweets and touchdown celebrations, one can only imagine what kind of discipline Stevens would get if he even is lucky enough to be accepted back by the league.
Lesson here. . . try not to set off a reading on the Richter scale with your boom box if you’re cruising out in public with a bag of weed.
