sbchampbronx 08-09-2006 05:16 AM

surprise surprise...What i still don't understand is how did this guy get Jim Brown to vouch and cheerlead for him? remember those retarded interviews (which i'm sure shanny saw prior to drafting faurice clarett) where jim brown and clarett's mom and him all talked about how classy a guy he really was and how he'd gotten a bad rap. Absolutely rediculous....

Police use Mace on Clarett, arrest him after chase
Associated Press


COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Maurice Clarett was arrested early Wednesday after a highway chase that ended with police using Mace on the former Ohio State running back and finding four loaded guns in his truck, a police spokesman said.

Officers used Mace to subdue Clarett after a stun gun was ineffective because the former Fiesta Bowl star was wearing a bullet-resistant vest, Sgt. Michael Woods said.

"It took several officers to get him handcuffed," Woods said. "Even after he was placed in the paddy wagon, he was still kicking at the doors and being a problem for the officers."

Clarett was taken to police headquarters to be interviewed. Police planned to charge him with carrying concealed weapons and other counts, Woods said.

Clarett made an illegal U-turn on the city's east side and failed to stop when officers, in a cruiser with lights flashing, tried to pull him over, Woods said.

Police were pursuing Clarett on eastbound Interstate 70 when he darted across the median and began heading west. Clarett drove over a spike strip that was placed on the highway, flattening the driver's side tires of the SUV, Woods said.

Clarett exited the highway and pulled into a restaurant parking lot, where officers removed him from the SUV after he failed to obey numerous orders to exit the vehicle, Woods said.

After Clarett was placed in a police van, officers discovered a loaded rifle and three loaded handguns in the front of the vehicle, Woods said.

Woods said he did not know where Clarett got the guns or why he had them, and that federal authorities plan to trace their ownership.

Clarett, 22, is currently awaiting trial on two counts of aggravated robbery, four counts of robbery and one count of carrying a concealed weapon in a separate case. Authorities said he was identified by witnesses as the person who flashed a gun and robbed two people in an alley behind the Opium Lounge in the early hours of Jan. 1.

Messages seeking comment were left Wednesday morning for Clarett's attorneys in that case, Nick Mango and Michael Hoague.

Clarett scored the winning touchdown in the second overtime to lead Ohio State to the 2002 national championship, the school's first since 1968. But that was the last game the freshman played for Ohio State. He sat out the 2003 season after being charged with misdemeanor falsification on a police report, then dropped out of school. He sued to be included in the 2004 NFL draft and lost in court.

A surprise third-round pick in the 2005 draft, he was cut by the Denver Broncos during the preseason.

Jim Brown is so classy, he threw one woman out of a second floor window and served time in jail for beating another woman.

There were TV cameras around Clarett at the time, so Jim felt compelled to do his civic duty.

Uh...why was this numbskull not rotting behind bars instead of roaming the land free and easy with a bell tower kit in his car?

Bail bond...what a great system.

Clarett is, perhaps, one of the saddest downfalls in sports history...IMO alongside Mike Tyson.

Master___Pain 08-09-2006 07:23 AM

The rifle was not your run of the mill hunting rifle either, turns out it was an AK-47!! Looks like old Mo was going to war.

Orange_Beard 08-09-2006 07:27 AM

ONLY 4 GUNS?

I would think he would need like 6 or 7 for protection.

Well Tyson was the greatest at what he did.....Clarett JugHead was a 4.79 40 plodding injury prone bum that was highly questionable if he even had NFL talent despite what Bobby Turner foolishly thought.

Maurice Clarett makes a phone call as he is booked at Franklin County Corrections Center, Wednesday, Aug. 9, 2006, in Columbus, Ohio.


All I can say is "Damn, Damn, ....., Damn!!!". It looks like he had a rough night. You think!

dbfan4life 08-09-2006 07:43 AM

It's strange seeing Clarett in that prison uni.

All he needs to do is get a hold of a black magic marker, draw on some stripes and he'd fit right in with the Bengals.

I'll bet Marvin Lewis is tripping over himself to get this guy in camp now.

DomCasual 08-09-2006 08:23 AM

That probably rules him out for this year, I guess.

Anyone have any idea as to how this might affect his status for '07? I just keep thinking this kid has a comeback in him.

bpc 08-09-2006 08:38 AM

This guy could have been the prince of the football world after leading OSU to a NC his freshman year.

Instead he looks like a guy who is trying to keep his street credibility any way he can. What a sad sad man.
