From the guys at The Bleacher Report.
They never tire of doing the tough stories none of the rest of us want to touch. Like the 10 Best Cheerleader Bloopers in NFL History. Not just from last season, but in the entire history of the NFL. They must have looked at hours and hours of footage over weeks. But if they hadn’t we wouldn’t have this report, would we?
There’s drinking and then there’s DRINKING. David Jonathan “DJ” Byrd, a guard/forward for the Purdue Boilermakers mens basketball team was probably the later before police arrested him early Friday morning.
It seems Mr. Byrd was at the Where Else Bar with former Boilermaker Kelsey Barlow when they were told to leave. After heading outside, the boys realized that Barlow had forgotten his wallet inside and tried to re-enter. When the staff refused them re-entry a fracas of sorts broke out and sometime during that fight, Byrd allegedly bit one of the bouncers.
Of course, cops were called at that point, and when the officer arrived he broke up the fight and arrested Byrd for public intoxication. His BAC at the time? A whopping 0.219%, nearly three times the legal limit. Still not enough to get him in the Top Twenty of the World Famous BadJocks BAC Rankings, but more than enough to now make him the “leader in the clubhouse” for a still young 2012. (At left, DJ Byrd’s mug shot.)
Despite visible bite marks on his arm, the bouncer refused to file assault charges against Byrd. In a public statement, Byrd called the whole thing “an unfortunate incident” while the university decided it was a little more serious and suspended the junior from the team.
Don’t republish this photo.
Not unless you want to get arrested and spend five years in jail for “offending public morality.” Oh, and you work for a news organization in a country ruled by strict Islamic law.
The photo, of Real Madrid soccer star Sami Khedira and his mostly naked hot blond model girlfriend (how many times do you get to use that phrase in a sentence?), Lena Gercke, on the cover of GQ magazine is tame by western standards, but in the country of Tunisia, where Khedira’s father is from, it’s grounds for an ass-kicking. As a result, three journalists from Tunisian newspaper Attounissia have been arrested for republishing the images. International news organizations are demanding their release, an end to censorship and more naked pictures of Gercke. But mostly the pictures.
