Washington's saftey Sean Taylor arrested again

Recommended Posts

MIAMI (AP) -- Washington Redskins safety Sean Taylor was arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a firearm Saturday night after turning himself in to Miami-Dade County police. According to a police statement, Taylor pointed a gun at an unidentified person Wednesday during a dispute over two all-terrain vehicles he claimed were stolen. Taylor left the scene but returned about 10 minutes later and punched one person.

Police had been looking for Taylor since Friday. Taylor, 22, was accompanied by his attorney, Fred Moldovan, when he turned himself in. He was also charged with simple battery. Police said the Redskins organization cooperated with them during the investigation.

``We have just been made aware of a potential situation in Miami regarding Sean Taylor,'' Redskins spokesman Karl Swanson said in a statement. ``The representatives for Taylor are keeping us informed as to the developments. There is nothing we can add to the process at this time.''

Taylor's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, did not return a phone message left by The Associated Press late Saturday.

Another man, Charles Elwood Caughman, threatened and chased another victim with a baseball bat, police said. Caughman, 19, was arrested later that day and charged with aggravated assault.

Taylor, who wants a new contract, has been working out in Miami despite pleas from Redskins coach Joe Gibbs to join the team in voluntary workouts at their home base in suburban Washington. He signed a seven-year, $18 million deal as the No. 5 overall draft pick in the 2004 draft, but the former Miami Hurricanes standout has had a tempestuous start to his NFL career.

He has fired two agents, was fined for skipping one day of the NFL's mandatory rookie symposium and was accused of spitting on a player during a game at Cincinnati, although he was not punished because the league said there was no video evidence.

He was also charged with drunken driving in October, when he was pulled over at 2:45 a.m. after attending a birthday party for receiver Rod Gardner. Those charges were dismissed in January.

I would hope there was no video evidence to punish him for spitting on a player IN Cincinnati, because he's never played a game in Cincinnati! The last game between these two clubs was week 10 of last season in Washington!

Oh, and get this! Does anyone know what Mr. Taylor majored in while at the University of Miami? Criminology!! Someone needs to tell Sean he doesn't need to do any more personal research for his major! :rolleyes:

I can't say that I'm sorry to hear this. Miami has been producing extremely talented knuckleheads. :huh:

With athletes like that, the ncaa investigation cannot be too far behind. They had to be willing to take the easy alumni gifts. There would be nothing better (for me) than having the ncaa slam it to the hurricanes. I know I'm reaching....... :D Yes, I'm still sore about the Big East defections.
