NJ Police Anticipate Super Bowl XLVIII Arrests

Essex County Criminal Defense LawyerWith the Super Bowl on the horizon, New Jersey police officials are expecting an increase in the number of citizen arrests.

Although police expect many people to be arrested during Super Bowl Week, don’t be surprised if at least some of those arrests involve NFL players. A USA Today database has been used to compile a list of all of the NFL players who were arrested, charged, or received citations for crimes other than typical traffic violations in 2013.

The inventory includes the names of 50 members from the National Football League. Encompassing data from January through November, the index includes four players who were ultimately charged, one who received a citation, and the remainder of whom were arrested.

The four players charged with crimes include: Aldon Smith of the San Francisco 49ers, who was accused of unlawful possession of a weapon in connection with a stabbing at a party; Nigel Bradham of the Buffalo Bills, who was charged with possession of marijuana following a traffic stop; and Von Miller of the Denver Broncos, who received a citation for driving with a suspended license.

Additionally, extremely serious charges have been filed against Ausar Walcott, formerly of the Cleveland Browns, who pleaded not guilty to attempted murder for his alleged involved in a nightclub beating.

Of course, the most severe charges brought against an NFL player last year where the homicide charges filed against Aaron Hernandez, formerly of the New England Patriots. Hernandez was indicted for homicide after his arrest on June 26 and is currently being held without bail.

The other offenses for which NFL players were arrested last year include: domestic violence, drug crimes, driving while intoxicated, disorderly conduct, public intoxication, failure to appear in court, outstanding warrants, illegal possession of a handgun, resisting arrest, simple assault, solicitation, and criminal mischief.
