    Is there a player who has been arrested 3x's in less than a year who wasn't booted

    I'm just curious if anyone knows of any player who has been arrested 3 times in less than a year that wasn't booted off the team.

    I think Benny Sapp at Iowa may have been, but I can't remember if he was kicked off the team or not.

    Actually, I guess Benny was kicked off and I don't think his problems occurred so quickly.

    Remember, Mike wasn't arrested, he was cited. Big difference.

    Re: Is there a player who has been arrested 3x's in less than a year who wasn't boote

    To be fair...I think Mike was only actually arrested once....for the Feb. 4th incident. I'm not sure how the DUI went down in WI and the paper said he was cited for the latest incident. A crime is a crime, arrested or not. Just wanted to clarify though.

    Yet I see your point...charged with 3 crimes in a year. Doesn't bode well.

    I think Hakim Hill, football player at Arizona State (from Iowa City), got more than three strikes before they jettisoned him! He later enrolled at UNI, but I don't think he ever played.

    His best transgression was stealing paintball guns from Scheels and then driving around Iowa City shooting "dorks" on scooters...

    He was arrested for this? No medals of honor given? How rude...

    One of the bad things about WI is it's lax attitude concerning 1st DUI or OWI as they call it here.

    First offense OWI / DUI is a forfeiture violation subject to a fine of $150 to $300, plus an OWI surcharge of $355, and license revocation from 6 to 9 months, except first offense OWI with a BAC of .08 or more, but less than .10, there is no surcharge or other additional fees.

    Also:

    Effective September 30, 2003, if a person is convicted of a first offense OWI / DUI with an alcohol concentration of .08 or more but less than .10, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation is required to purge the offense from its records.


    So depending on Mike's BAC, his OWI may have already been purged from the records and officially it no longer exists.

    If his BAC was less than .10 then he probably paid $150 and had no other surcharges/ loss of license and the DOT has purged it from his record.

    Just yesterday I read an article about the ten biggest running back busts of the NFL draft, and Lawrence Phillips was in at #4 for his colossal waste of talent! To this day, that story about him dragging his ex-girlfriend down stairs by her hair leaves me baffled; why didn't star QB Scott Frost defend her? Was Larry that big a beast?

    The Packer had a DB from that same NU team (Tyrone ?) who had to leave training camp for a return to Lincoln; he had a court date regarding "shots fired" upon a moving car!

    Thank goodness Mike hasn't done anything like this...

    Regarding Sapp, Ferentz is on record in the Register saying that Bennie had 5 or 6 problems either with the law or violating team rules. After that, he was showed the door.

    Hey Jo Public -- I would like to show to my hawkeye buds -- could you tell me where that is on-line so I could get a copy?

    Thanks in advance

    Re: Is there a player who has been arrested 3x's in less than a year who wasn't boote

    I'm sorry Mark, but this comes from a Register article at the time Kirk dismissed Bennie. You could try their archives at the DMR Website, but I believe that is a service you must pay for.

    Here's a link that cites the Register as saying Sapp's name appeared in the Iowa City police blotter five times before charges were filed. Benny Sapp - Father's Day article [Archive] - Panther Nation

    It's lengthy and you have to read until it discusses his time in IC.
