Two NFL players walk into a bar… a penalty flag is thrown, five yard penalty for interference. Wait…make that two mugshots, handcuffs and one taser for “interference”.
Chicago Bears cornerback Deiondre Hall and Green Bay Packers cornerback Makinton Dorleant were arrested for “interference” over the weekend in Cedar Falls.
Yeah they were cuffed, cheesed for mugshots and one of them even tasered for the infraction — but we should point out, this infraction didn’t include a zebra tossing a yellow flag. This infraction involves an alleged fight.
The NFL players were taken to jail after the alleged fight broke out and according to the Black Hawk County Sheriff, Hall was cited for disorderly conduct, public intoxication, and interference while Dorleant was cited for interference.
Cedar Falls cops say they were heading to another call in their area and happened to notice a bouncer, at a place called Sharky’s, trying to remove people from the establishment.
The bouncer told police he was assaulted so authorities are expecting surveillance video to provide info regarding that accusation. If tape shows the assault occurred, there may be an assault charge added.
The cops also say, while they were trying to bring order back, a crowd gathered and started getting aggressive and recording the incident. One Cedar Falls police officer was allegedly hit in the head with a beer bottle but not hurt. We have to assume that Jay Cutler wasn’t with his former teammate Hall because that throw hit its mark. Note: the cop said he was okay after getting struck.
We mentioned, taser. Hall was said to be the victim of that because police say he wasn’t cooperating when they were trying to bust him.
Can you blame him? Cuffed and a mugshot for “interference”?!
