Police don't give these guys much of a break anymore.
OJ SImpson would have been screwed in this modern era.

These guys have to realize that they are held to a higher standard. They have all that money and can't afford to higher a driver to take them to and from their destinations on their nights out on the town?

I don't know much about any past incidents with AP but if his rap sheep were lengthy, I think I'd know about it. I am willing to let the fact unfold and reserve judgement. Just me.

Just so you know--
OJ caught a "nice break" in '95 due to serious incompetence on the part of the prosecution (one of several high profile cases the LA DA's office bungled at the time--Menendez bros murder of parents comes to mind) and due to serious incompetence of the jury. Not sure of the race card factor being very significant.

He did ultimately pay for his many sins 12 years later, however, and is serving 33 years (min 9 years without parole) on multiple felony charges including kidnapping. Remember?

OJ. Turned 65 today. What a strange ****ed up guy..

He was actually arested for resisting arrest... I don't know how that is possible.

Fine. But the premise of this thread is the off field problem (with the law) of a high profile football player, not football. The remarks of fourth&forever, you, and myself, are within the context of the thread. If you just want to talk football, fair enough. But then this particular thread is not for you, that's all. No foul.

Sooner or later, the Eagles were going to join in with NFL teams dealing with player arrests.
