    BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (AP) -- Authorities say NFL linebacker Joey Porter has been arrested in Bakersfield on suspicion of drunken driving and accused of assaulting an officer and resisting arrest.
    The California Highway Patrol says the 33-year-old player was confronted by officers early Saturday in a fast-food parking lot.
    Porter refused to provide his driver's license and began to roll up his window when asked to leave the car. Police say that when an officer reached to unlock the door Porter slapped the officer's hand.
    Porter eventually got out and complied with orders, placing his hands behind his back. He and a passenger were arrested.
    The 11-year veteran recently signed with the Arizona Cardinals. He also has played for Pittsburgh and Miami.

        Bengals' Nicholson arrested on domestic violence charge

        CINCINNATI -- Linebacker A.J. Nicholson was arrested on a domestic violence charge Friday, the first arrest of a Cincinnati Bengals' player since commissioner Roger Goodell cracked down on misconduct last month.

        Nicholson already was one of nine Bengals players arrested during a nine-month span, turning the team into a prime example of player misconduct. The team had gone four months without having a player arrested.

        Police in nearby Taylor Mill, Ky., arrested Nicholson after a woman called 911 on Friday afternoon to say she had been assaulted by the second-year player. He was charged with fourth-degree assault, a misdemeanor.

        Goodell introduced a new conduct policy last month that stiffens penalties and holds franchises responsible when their players get into trouble.

        Nicholson, a fifth-round draft pick from Florida State in 2006, appeared in only two games last season, when he had a hamstring injury.

        Last March, Nicholson pleaded no contest to burglary and grand theft in Tallahassee, Fla., and was sentenced to two months in a work program. He had been charged with stealing electronic equipment and other items from the apartment of a former Florida State teammate.

        Nicholson was also placed on two years' probation, which could be jeopardized by his latest arrest.

        Taylor Mill police chief Steve Knauf said a woman called police to Nicholson's apartment at 3:10 p.m. on Friday, saying she had been hit in the face. The officer who responded saw that the woman had an injury by her eye.

        Nicholson wasn't at the apartment, but later showed up at the police station and was arrested, Knauf said. He faces up to 12 months in jail and a $500 fine if convicted.

        He was jailed in the Kenton County (Ky.) Detention Center following his arrest and released late Friday on $5,000 bond, jail personnel said.

        Bengals spokesman Jack Brennan said the team had no immediate comment because it was still gathering information on the arrest.

        The Bengals lead the league in off-the-field player problems.

        Receiver Chris Henry and middle linebacker Odell Thurman currently are suspended by the league for misconduct. Henry has been arrested four times since December 2005, and will miss the first eight games next season under a suspension imposed by Goodell last month.

        Thurman was suspended for all of last season after skipping a drug test and getting arrested for drunken driving. Last February, he pleaded no contest to drunken driving and received a 90-day jail sentence that was put on hold while he got treated for alcohol abuse.

        Thurman's sentence could be reduced at a hearing in June if he stays out of trouble and completes the treatment program....

        Arrested: Former Rams Punter Tuten
        by GameTime
        Dealing in stolen property. Wow, this guy helped us win a superbowl and now he has sunk to this. --bummer.

        Got this from

        OCALA, Fla. -- Former NFL punter Rick Tuten was arrested Thursday for buying stolen goods and reselling the merchandise for a profit.

        The Marion County sheriff's office said in a new release that deputies began investigating Tuten when they learned he purchased a $4,000 all-terrain vehicle for $900. He allegedly purchased other ATVs and electronics from suspects arrested for multiple burglaries.

        Tuten played 12 season in the NFL for Philadelphia, Buffalo, Seattle and St. Louis. His final season was 1999 with the Rams.

        During a taped telephone conversation, a police informant told Tuten she had two stolen flat screen televisions valued at $1,500.

        According to an affidavit, Tuten replied, "I don't know nothing about nothing." He then instructed the woman to deliver the items to his home. Tuten paid the woman $600 for the televisions and then asked her to deliver more.

        Tuten, 42, was charged with two counts of dealing in stolen property.

        Authorities found the stolen ATV on Tuten's property during a search of his home.

        He was released from Marion County jail on $20,000 bond, jail officials said. It was not immediately known if he had an attorney. A phone number for Tuten was not listed.

        Rams CB Murphy arrested for no valid license
        JULY 24, 2010

        Former USF cornerback Jerome Murphy, now a rookie with the St. Louis Rams, was arrested near USF's campus on Saturday afternoon and charged with a misdemeanor count of driving without a valid license.

        Murphy, 23, a third-round draft pick of the Rams who signed a four-year contract last month, was arrested at 1 p.m. by Hillsborough County Sheriff's officers. He was booked into county jail and released two hours later on $250 cash bond. He was stopped at Fowler Avenue and 56th Street, less than a mile from USF's athletic facility, where the Bulls were conducting a large 7-on-7 football camp for high school students Saturday.

        Murphy, of Elizabeth, N.J., did not immediately return a call seeking comment Saturday night.

        Iowa City police say drunken driver was naked
        Posted: Jun 01, 2010 8:04 PM CDT Updated: Jun 03, 2010 8:15 AM CDT

        IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - Iowa City police say they were able to track down a drunken driver who struck a street sign thanks in part to his clothing. His lack of clothing, that is.

        Police say witnesses told officers they saw a naked man drive away from a convenience store early Tuesday and hit a street sign.

        Police found the damaged car a short time later. The driver was gone, but police say they found the man, still naked, outside his neighbor's apartment.

        Authorities say the 20-year-old man had a blood-alcohol content of .189 percent, more than twice the legal limit. Police say witnesses from the convenience store were able to identify the naked man as the driver of the vehicle.
