Jerramy Stevens busted. . . .again!

Jerramy Stevens mug shot photos have graced the covers of newspapers and websites over the years and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers player is at it again. Stevens was arrested after a police officer pulled him over for playing loud music then learned that the player with a long history of run-ins with the law was hiding 38 grams of cannabis inside the vehicle.

Stevens was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to sell, possession of marijuana, and possession of drug paraphernalia which counts for two felony charges and one misdemeanor charge for all of you keeping track at home.

Not too shabby for a routine pull over.

And although this is Stevens first time being featured in our Jocks Behind Bars, it is hardly his first time getting cuffed and cheesing for a mugshot.

His list of legal troubles dates all the way back to 1998 when he was busted for second-degree assault with a deadly weapon and fourth-degree assault. Add a sexual assault arrest with troubling details, three reckless driving charges including a hit-and-run on a nursing home, one “extreme DUI” a two game suspension for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy and you get the picture of our guy.

Needless to say, he isn’t the cover boy for the NFL role model poster.

So far this season, Stevens has only three receptions for 43 yards and his off-field antics far outweigh his potential. At the ripe age of 30, this backup tight end has probably seen his last days in a Buccaneers jersey and more than likely his last days in the NFL.

With NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell cracking down on tweets and touchdown celebrations, one can only imagine what kind of trouble Jerramy Stevens has gotten himself into.

He should just be thanking his lucky stars that the Brett Favre scandal is still going on. As long as Favre is losing games and being accused of sending past penis pictures and sext messages over his cell phone then this latest arrest will fizzle out in the media… except for in Buccaneers country that is.

Lesson here. . . try not to set off a reading on the Richter scale with your boom box if you’re cruising out in public with a bag of weed.
