On the plus side, when Kentucky State quarterback Martez “How You Doin’? James was arrested in front of his coach after making unwanted advances towards a hotel housekeeper just hours before he was supposed to play.
Twenty-two-year-old Martez James was arrested Saturday morning. James has been the starting quarterback all season for the Kentucky State Thorobreds. They were in Chicago to play in the annual “Chicago Classic” college game at Soldier Field, a scholarship fundraising event this year focused on curbing violence.
But, in an embarrassing pre-game encounter, the Kentucky State quarterback was arrested after police say he went after a maid at the team hotel. When Mayor Rahm Emanuel did the ceremonial coin flip just before kickoff on Saturday afternoon, almost no one at Soldier Field knew what had happened just a few hours earlier at the Kentucky State team hotel.
Quarterback Martez James, a blue chip, 220-pound senior from Detroit, had been arrested by Chicago police after a 911 call from the Hyatt McCormick Place where the Thorobreds players and staff were staying. Chicago police say, about 10 a.m., James past a hotel housekeeper in the hallway on the sixth floor, and asked, “Can I have five minutes of your time?” The “victim ignored offender,” according to investigators, and “proceded (sic) to room 605.” Then the “offender entered room 605,” she told police.
According to the police report obtained by the I-Team, James repeated the question, “Can I have five minutes of your time?” Sex crimes detectives say he then “approached her from rear and pressed the front of his body against the back of her body.”
James was charged with battery for allegedly making physical contact with a victim. At the Hyatt McCormick Place, the team’s athletic director and football coach were both present during the arrest. James did not play in the game at Soldier Field, but at this point officials at the Frankfort, Kentu
We’ll let the NY Daily News tell the story, but the last line is my favorite part: “Sytch was released into the care of her sister, with the promise that she would immediately go to rehab.”
Yeah, after your third arrest, you probably need to try something different. At left, a picture of Tamara Sytch back in the day, and below her mug shot.
Tamara Sytch, best known as the WWE wrestler and manager Sunny, scored an unprecedented three count: Three arrests in as many days for harassing her boyfriend. Sytch, 39, first went to his Branford, Conn., home and caused trouble on Sept. 11, WFSB-TV reported. She was arrested, charged with disorderly conduct and warned not to return after she was released on bond. But Sytch didn’t listen. The following day, she went back and was charged with third-degree strangulation and violation of protective order on top of the disorderly conduct charge.
She put her boyfriend in a headlock and pulled his hair, cops said. She was released again — this time on a $25,000 bond — and went back to her boyfriend’s place Sept. 13. This time, she was drunk and broke into his house by climbing through a window.
After another charge for violating a protective order, Sytch was released into the care of her sister, with the promise that she would immediately go to rehab.
Usually golfers are pretty calm and non-violent. But apparently not Rudolph Hermstadt, a Connecticut amateur golf champion. Seems that he and his caddie got into it after a round last week and the cause wasn’t poor club selection. It appears to be over a woman. More from WTNH:
The Republican-American newspaper reports 37-year-old Rudolph Hermstadt, is scheduled to appear in Superior Court next week on charges of third-degree assault and breach of peace. Police say Hermstadt was captured on a surveillance video choking and punching 41-year-old Jeremy Eterginio of Prospect inside the 19th Hole Cafe at the East Mountain Golf Course on July 22.
Hermstadt told the newspaper the fight stemmed from an argument over Eterginio’s relationship with Hermstadt’s fiancee. He says Eterginio is no longer his caddie or his friend.
By now, most of you have heard that the Minnesota Vikings Adrian Peterson was taken into custody by Houston police over the weekend for resisting arrest. This incident happened at a nightclub where the star running back allegedly asked for a drink of water (what?) after police showed up at the bar to close it down for the night. Cops say Peterson exchanged words with an off-duty officer (who probably thinks water isn’t a manly enough drink and was probably dehydrated himself at the time) working security and next thing you know AD is “resisting arrest.”
Something smells fishing about this all the way around, so we’ll wait until more information comes out to comment, but below is the only known video of Peterson’s arrest. Thanks to TMZ for the video!
Well, there’s something you don’t see everyday. If we didn’t know better, we would say that #61 is enjoying the fact that whiny, red-headed fan is being arrested for running onto the field following the University of Texas at San Antonio’s 31-3 win over the Oklahoma’s Northeastern State Riverhawks.
You can sorta understand the UTSA fan’s enthusiasm: it was their first college football game EVER and was a big win. Yet, fans were warned to stay off the field and at least six of those who did–like this guy–found themselves in handcuffs. (Details here.)

Details have been scarce on the arrest of Texas wide receive Christian “The Check’s in the Mail” Scott, but now we know it wasn’t your run-of-the-mill college bar brawl.
According to police, Scott allegedly assaulted a woman who was trying to repossess his 2000 Cadillac . . . for the second time. Before the repo lady could make her getaway, Scott showed up in another vehicle, blocked her exit and then beat on the Caddy until she exited, at which time–allegedly–he threw her to the ground in the asphalt parking lot.
Not surprisingly, Scott has been suspended indefinitely from the team by head coach Mack Brown .
