Drunk Guy in Jorts Gets Handcuffed and Shoved at Coors Field, Yells “I’m a Citizen of the United States of America!” [Video]

Police at Coors Field had to deal with a drunk guy earlier this week. This video, originally posted on Facebook, shows a guy in jorts and a tank top get into it with security at a Rockies game. The cops just want him to shut up for a minute and the dude just wants to pretend he knows about the rights of an American who just wants to stand on his American legs. 

Excessive force or just a dumb kid who needs to learn to shut his mouth?

Justin Blackmon: Jaguars WR Previously Suspended Indefinitely by the NFL, Arrested For Marijuana Possession

Justin Blackmon is not making a great case for NFL reinstatement. Blackmon, who served a suspension to start the 2013 NFL season and finished the season with an indefinite suspension for violation of the league’s substance abuse policy, was arrested again on Wednesday night following a traffic stop.

Police smelled the odor of marijuana coming from the car and found an unspecified amount of marijuana inside the car during a search.

The Jaguars were prepared to use Blackmon if he was reinstated this season, but they probably won’t have to worry about making that decision now. Blackmon also has two DUI arrests – one from 2010 when he was at Oklahoma State and one in 2012 after he was drafted by the Jaguars.

Roddy White Gets 4-Year Contract Extension From the Atlanta Falcons

The Atlanta Falcons made a much-needed signing after agreeing to terms on a contract extension with Roddy White to keep the star receiver in Atlanta beyond next season.

Following a down year for the four-time Pro Bowler in 2013, White, 32, had just one year left on his deal before he would have become a free agent. After spending his entire career with the Falcons since 2005, White didn’t want to suit up for another team after the 2014 season.

Hamstring and ankle injuries limited him to 13 games and 711 receiving yards last season, but since entering the league in 2005, White’s 685 receptions rank eighth among active players, while his 9,436 receiving yards rank fifth. His 55 touchdown catches during that time also rank 10th in the NFL.
