Bronco’s Exec Arrested for DUI After Smashing Into Patrol Car, Blows .246% BAC

Congratulations to Denver Broncos Director of Player Personnel Matt Russell! After his arrest for DUI this week, we found out he blew an incredible blood alcohol concentration of .246%, more than three times the legal limit. That lands him in the Top Twenty of the World Famous BadJocks BAC Rankings. Which, of course, is quite an honor these days. As to Russell’s claim that he only had “two green drinks”:…

Brewers Gallardo Arrested for DUI Near Ballpark

April 17, 2013

First, the good news. Because Wisconsin is such an “understanding” state, Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Yovani Gallardo will not be going to jail for his first DUI arrest. In Badger state, it’s only a citation not a felony or even a misdemeanor charge. The bad news? Even though he blew on impressive 0.22% BAC (nearly three times the legal limit) it’s still not enough to crack the Top Twenty of the…

The tale of Honey Badger will apparently NOT have a happy ending after all. Then again, maybe he’ll end up as someone’s special honey badger in jail in the future? Mathieu, also known as the Honey Badger, was arrested and charged Thursday along with three former LSU football players, including former quarterback Jordan Jefferson, after officers found the marijuana in Mathieu’s apartment, according to the police report. The report also said…

Tubby Smith’s Son, an Assistant Coach at U of Minnesota, Arrested for DWI, Put on Leave – Saul Smith

After the phrase “when the truth comes out” (it never does) or next favorite sports/crime phrase has to be “we do not want to rush to judgment.” As in, “we know it LOOKS like the guy on our team did something really, really awful, it was caught on camera, and there are 100 witnesses, but let the legal process take its sweet time and hopefully your outrage will have faded…

Video: Drunken Belgian Soccer Player Drives Porsche Into Convenience Store

They do things differently in Europe, don’t they? In the US, a star athlete would pay someone else to drunkenly drive their care into a 7-11. But not over there. Nope, in Europe they still do things the old-fashioned way. As my grandpa used to say, “If you want something done right, you have to do it yourself.” That’s likely the motto of Belgian soccer star Jonathan “Which One is the…

Falcons Michael Turner Arrested for DUI after Monday Night Football

No BAC reported on this yet, but my main concern right now is whether I have Turner on one of my fantasy football teams. Here’s more from Yahoo Sports: Michael Turner hasn’t exactly had the best start to a season so far in 2012.  He was limited to just 11 carries in the opening week and while he followed that up with a 42 yard, one touchdown performance on Monday night…

Former Raiders Coach Arrested for Hitting Man in Face With Beer Bottle While “Crazy Drunk”

August 27, 2012

You know, there’s drunk, and then there’s “crazy drunk. It also leads to great mug shots, doesn’t it? Here’s more on the story from USA Today: Former Oakland Raiders and Cal Poly assistant coach Randy Hanson faces assault and battery charges for an Aug. 4 incident in which he allegedly smashed a beer bottle into the face of a man and then locked himself in a limo, the San Luis Obispo Tribune reports….

Seahawks Marshawn Lynch Arrested for DUI in Oakland

July 17, 2012

First off, no, we don’t know what his exact BAC was, other than it was over the legal limit of .08%. (And likely not enought to qualify him for the World Famous BadJocks BAC Rankings.) How much over could impact what Lynch is charged with and the punishment handed down by the team and/or the league. Lynch, who played high school football in Oakland and is college ball at Cal…
