    Nicholson charged in Florida, held on $16,000 bail

    Nicholson charged in Florida, held on $16,000 bail
    Associated Press

    TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Cincinnati Bengals linebacker A.J. Nicholson was charged Saturday with burglarizing the apartment of a former Florida State teammate.

    The 21-year-old Nicholson also was charged with grand theft and vandalism. He was being held at the Leon County jail on $16,000 bond, with a first appearance before a judge scheduled Monday, a spokesman with the Sheriff's office said.

    Nicholson and Fred Rouse, another former Florida State teammate, are accused of breaking into the apartment of Seminoles running back Lorenzo Booker and stealing $1,700 worth of electronic equipment late last month.

    The 20-year-old Rouse, a former wide receiver kicked off the team in January after his freshman season, was arrested May 27 in Tallahassee and charged with burglary and grand theft. Nicholson was in Cincinnati when the charges were filed.

    Nicholson has a history of off-field problems, including a suspension for the Orange Bowl in January after he took a woman to the team's Miami hotel in a violation of team policy. She accused him of sexual assault, but Nicholson has not been charged.

    Nicholson, a fifth-round draft pick, has been participating in the Bengals' voluntary workouts. Team officials declined to comment. A message left for Nicholson's agent was not immediately returned.

    ...and this is why it's risky to take rookie prospects with character/off-the-field concerns.

    Which is great. Hopefully it stays that way. But obviously the risk is there, which is my point.

    I don't get why people STILL need to be idiotic when they have an amazing job, and no offense to me isn't a real job, its a fantasy job that pays vast sums of money to young people. I don't get why these guys can't get it though their heads to not be stupid, they're adults now, and believe it or not, parents should be rolemodels for their kids, but they're not, sports players usually are, and people like Nicholson are not setting a good example whatsoever, I know its not his duty to do so but still, people look up to these guys, they should respect that no matter what

    On top of everything else, he was ripping off another florida state team member. What a moron!

    Same old story. These guys are great athletes and they get away with bad behavior growing up over and over. No limits enforced and no rules apply to them.

    I think VARG6 is 100% correct. These guys dont appreciate how lucky they are to play this great game and get paid, and paid very very well.

    ramming speed to all

    all threads started by anyone under the age of 18 are being moved to this forum. You have a problem with it, PM Dez.

    From now on, keep your attitude to yourself.

    This is from Dez himself:

    This is from me and you can tell anyone who wants to listen.

    MOVE ALL THREADS STARTED BY YOUNGSTERS INTO THE UNDER 18s FORUM

    Thats ALL threads.

    This is not up for discussion
