Rams Westbrooks busted (mugshot)


Ethan Westbrooks mugshot

Sacramento police say that Los Angeles Rams’ defensive lineman, Ethan Westbrooks, was busted on Sunday night after accusations of domestic violence.

Cops say they were called to the 8700 block of Center Parkway at 9:06 p.m. Sunday regarding a dispute. After arrival, police said they saw visible injuries to a woman’s body.

The 26-year—old Westbrooks was not at the location so police went to another nearby residence on Clearbrook Way where they cuffed and booked the NFL player on suspicion of domestic violence. Westbrooks left the jail the following morning.

The Rams released the cliché statement that sounds like most of the others we’ve heard from NFL teams over the years,

“We are aware of the serious allegations involving Ethan Westbrooks. We are in contact with authorities and gathering more information. Per team policy, we will continue to respect the legal process and have no further comment at this time.”

Westbrooks is currently a free agent after playing in all 16 games last season for the Rams while tallying two sacks and 24 tackles.

Patriots’ J.J. Worton arrested . . . again


New England Patriots practice squad player J.J. Worton was arrested for assaulting two women and one guy over the weekend.

According to reports, the rookie groped the two women before knocking out the man. Cops charged the rookie with two counts of indecent assault and battery and one count of assault and battery.

The assault is said to have occurred at a bar a few miles away from Gillette Stadium, just hours before the Patriots’ 20–18 loss to the Denver Broncos in the AFC Championship Game on Sunday.

After police pulled over the car Worton was in, Worton told them he “accidentally” touched the women then punched the man in self defense.

The former UCF Knight wide receiver was signed to New England’s practice squad on Jan. 11, after being on the Rams’ practice squad earlier this season.

This isn’t the first time Worton made headlines with a bust. Back in 2012 while playing for the UCF Knights in Orlando, he was arrested after he punched a cop. The mugshot in this article is from that incident in Orlando.

NFL Lynch expects suspension as Stallworth awaits results of drug & alcohol test


The NFL certainly is finding a way to dominate the sports headlines throughout their offseason with marquee players (AP Photo/Don Heupel)like Terrell Owens and Matt Cassel changing teams while mock draft boards are being shuffled like a deck of cards.Unfortunately, much to the displeasure of Commissioner Roger Goodell, all the news is not football related. Matt Jones, Albert Haynesworth, Marshall Lynch and Donte Stallworth are the latest players to find themselves in trouble with the law.

Buffalo Bills RB Lynch expects to be disciplined after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor gun charge related to his arrest last month in Los Angeles.

Lynch was charged after police found a 9 mm semiautomatic weapon in the trunk of his car. Lynch pled guilty to having a concealed firearm and was sentenced to three years of probation and 80 hours community service.

While Goodell contemplates suspending Lynch, he awaits the outcome to another weapon case regarding one of his players; New York Giants’ receiver Plaxico Burress who shot himself in the leg while trying to bring a loaded handgun into a night club in New York.

In another incident earlier this month, Cleveland Browns receiver Donte Stallworth hit a killed a pedestrian in the early morning hours on a busy causeway near Miami Beach. Stallworth has been cooperating with the police and provided blood for a toxicology test.

Lynch is the only player to have met with Goodell thus far and although he appears to sincerely regret his incident, he expects a suspension from the league.

“It was a real productive meeting, [Goodell] stressed he will not tolerate any more screw-ups from me. I honestly see a suspension coming” said Lynch. “I feel with the incidents I’ve had, I’m young and I’ve grown through those situations. I’ve seen what these situations have put my family through, the team and the organization through and that’s not what I’m about.”

Stallworth also released a statement showing remorse and said he is “grief stricken” concerning being involved in the motor vehicle accident that took the life of a family man returning home from work.

Normally the negative publicity from situations like these find a way to fade away over time but with the league just settling down from the Burress incident and Adam ‘Pacman’ Jones’ latest ordeal in an Atlanta nightclub, Goodell may find himself out on another intense damage-control campaign soon.
