Jerramy Stevens arrested for punching bouncers

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!

Jerramy Stevens busted for cannabis

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.
