    D. Byrd arrested

    By Randy Jackson

    KSDK - A St. Louis Rams player has been arrested after allegedly stabbing a bar patron in a fight at a popular downtown nightclub.

    St. Louis police confirm the incident occurred at about 2 a.m. Monday, about 11 hours after the Rams' loss to the Arizona Cardinals Sunday afternoon.

    According to police, 22-year-old Dominique Byrd, a tight end, was involved in an altercation at the Pepper Lounge Night Club in the 2000 block of Locust Street.

    Witnesses say Byrd broke a bottle and then stabbed a patron in the face during the argument.

    Police arrested the 6'2'', 254-pound pro football player and took him into custody.

    Charges were expected later Monday.

    Byrd has been on the inactive list most of this season. He was the team's 3rd round draft pick out of U.S.C.

    Security officials with the Rams organization had no comment about the incident or arrest and said they did not know if they would comment later.

    What a horrible situation. He should have been at home thinking about how to get better and get on the field, instead he's out drinking at 2 a.m. Yet another wasted draft pick.

    Is it me, or do you feel like someone is collecting on some Karma bills from 1999.

    I think he stabbed the guy with the broken bottle, not a knife.

    Bye bye Byrdie.

    Yeppers, what a waste of a draft pick.

    Whoever in the Ram's FO, that pushed for picking him should be told he was STOOOOPID for drafting him.

    OTOH, he's a Ram, and he can claim he was drunk. Len Little will testify to his good behaviour and Byrd gets slapped on the wrist and returns to a promising career of mediocrity.

    Where does it say he had a knife? It says he broke a bottle and stabbed with it, did you hear he had a knife somewhere else?

    Here are just a few players we could have had that are contributing for their teams,

    LB Gerris Wilkinson
    OG Max Jean-Gilles
    S Dawan Landry
    DT Gabe Watson
    OG Rob Sims
    DE Ray Edwards
    OT Ryan O'Callaghan
    DT Kedric Golston
    S Antoine Bethea
    S Jarrad Page
    WR Marques Colston

    Enough said, what a bust

    Hindsight is 20/20.

    I wasn't sure about the pick when we made it, but since we were so weak at TE I bought in. It didn't work out but at least we tried to fill our needs at TE.

    You list Colston there, but honestly he doesn't even get on the field as a Ram, so nobody would know who he is.
    BRUUUUUUUUCE

    Re: Don't Look Now, but Someone in Trouble

    BY BILL BRYAN
    ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH
    12/04/2006

    St. Louis police were applying Monday with the circuit attorney's office for an assault charge against a Rams player, Dominique Byrd, following an early-morning scuffle in the Pepper Lounge at 2005 Locust Street, authorities said.

    About 2:30 a.m. Monday, Byrd allegedly grabbed a woman's buttocks and a man who was nearby confronted Byrd, police said.

    Byrd grabbed a beer bottle and struck the man in the head; the bottle broke and the man was taken to a hospital and needed stitches to close the wound, police said.

    Byrd was not arrested and booked. Rather, police decided to first apply for a criminal charge.


    Byrd, 22, is a rookie tight end for the Rams. He played last year for Southern Calfiornia.

    I was wrong about the knife. I saw "stabbed" and made an assumption.

    Re: Don't Look Now, but Someone in Trouble

    I've now heard on the radio that a woman who was with Byrd got her butt grabbed by somebody, and Byrd hit the guy over the head with a beer bottle. Weather or not Byrd did the grabbing, at least he didn't stab anybody. I'm not excusing hitting somebody in the head with a bottle, but it's certainly not as bad as stabbing somebody in the face as was first reported.

    Re: Don't Look Now, but Someone in Trouble

    Oh but hindsight is such an easy perspective. If we all think back, the prevailing wish for the double TE picks was that at least one would pan out. Klop is a starter and Byrd is stabbing people in the face with bottles.

    I'd say that's successful. At least one (so far) has panned out.
