This morning at approximately 6:30am - Cleveland Brown wide receiver Davone Bess was arrested at the Ft. Lauderdale airport for assaulting a police officer. Prior to the arrest Bess was "acting irrationally, dancing, singing with his pants repeatedly falling down." When confronted by police officers Bess (who yesterday made news by having a more than slightly questionable twitter pic) today took it to the next level when approached by local authorities at the airport:
The officer tried speaking to Bess, who grabbed a cup of coffee not belonging to him and squeezed it, causing the drink to land on the officer. Bess took a "fighting stance" at which time the officer struck him in the leg with a baton, according to the report. Bess removed his shirt and remained in the stance, ignoring the officer's command to drop to the ground.
Turns out this wasn't Davone's first run-in with authorities afterall. Last March Police were called to his Florida home when a strong smell of pot was reported. When they arrived this is what they found:
Several men were trying to restrain Bess as he was screaming, “Hide the guns. Where is my weed," and "I want to get in the end zone; throw me the football.
And the same guys (affectionately known around here as the 3 Stooges) who traded for Bess are running our still open Head Coaching search. Here's the kicker - Bess was allegedly brought to Cleveland to be a veteran and stabilizing influence on Josh Gordon who is also dealing with off the field issues. You just cannot make this shit up. You just cant.
Also in the news today, the details of ex Cleveland Brown Tight End Kellen Winslow Jr (the soldier) arrest on November 19th in a Target parking lot have become public. Winslow (allegedly) had the window to his vehicle open and was spotted by a female shopper doing something he probably should've waited until he got into the privacy of his shower to do. When the police arrived they found Winslow still in the vehicle and the following:
When cops arrived on the scene, they asked Winslow what he was doing and he allegedly told them he was looking for a Boston Market. The cops said that Winslow had his pants on by the time they found him, although he did apparently have "two open containers of Vaseline on his center console."
Winslow also had, according to the police, empty plastic containers of "Funky Monkey" and empty bags of "Mr. Happy."
Needless-to-say, if Kellen Winslow, Jr (the soldier) offers to make a run to Boston Market for you to pick up dinner - say no.
