Sheldon Richardson arrested

Post by jackal » Thu Jul 30, 2015 10:27 pm

Sheldon Richardson was arrested for resisting arrest(class A One year max in jail) He fled police in a
brief chase, and was clocked at three times at well over a hundred miles an hour. The top speed was 143
MPH. He had three passengers in vehicle, including a 12 year old minor(this could result in felony child
neglect and endangerment). Police found a fully loaded semi auto pistol in vehicle, as well. The arrest
was 12 days after, his suspension for violating NFL drug policies, was announced.


Really sad, Richardson IMO, is right up there with JJ Watt in disruptive ability.

Jets must be glad they drafted Leonard Williams.

Hard to believe that just a few days after receiving a 4 game suspension for substance abuse, Richardson pulls this stunt.

Sounds like the cops went easy on him by not charging him for child endangerment, having a loaded gun under the driver's seat and a car that reeked of marijuana (perhaps he had enough time to ditch the weed). Maybe the DA will add to the initial charges later on.

Anyone want to predict what kind of punishment the NFL assesses Richardson? I'm going to go with one game. Why? Because that makes the least amount of sense which seems like the guideline the league is following these days.

Richardson is having a very expensive off-season. Someone forgot to tell him about the high cost of low living.

Based on the story he could be charged with several more things....

Child endangerment ,felony eluding (in vehicle)

Firearms violations,

Suspension from NFL, might not be his biggest problem.
