Arizona Cardinals running back Jonathan Dwyer was arrested on charges of aggravated assault and deactivated from all team activities.
Dwyer was taken into custody on Wednesday, Sept. 17 and charged with one count of aggravated assault causing a fracture, one count of aggravated assault involving a minor, two counts of criminal damage, and one count of preventing the use of a phone in an emergency. He was able to pay the $25,000 cash bond early Thursday morning and ordered to wear an electronic monitoring bracelet and not have any contact with the victims, a 27-year-old female and an 18-month-old child.
The NFL star admitted to incidents that took place at his home in July. Neighbors reportedly heard a fight and called the police who arrived at the home but did not make any arrest because Dwyer hid in the bathroom and the woman involved in the incident said no one else was home. more >>

NFL star Adrian Peterson has been indefinitely banned from the game and attending or participating in any Vikings games; Peterson has also lost endorsements from several sponsors.
The Vikings originally allowed Peterson to participate in games and practices while his child abuse case in Texas continued. However, the team came under intense scrutiny for that decision by fans and sponsors, who threatened to pull support for the entire franchise if Peterson was allowed to continue playing. Now, though, the Vikings have changed their minds and decided to bench Peterson indefinitely while the case continues.
"While we were trying to make a balanced decision yesterday, after further reflection we have concluded that this resolution is best for the Vikings and Adrian," Vikings owners Zygi and Mark Wilf said in a statement. "We want to be clear: we have a strong stance regarding the protection and welfare of children, and we want to be sure we get this right. At the same time we want to express our support for Adrian and acknowledge his seven-plus years of outstanding commitment to this organization and this community." more >>

All of the above are equally repugnant. But a woman, saying Rice's wife Janay Palmer deserved it, is disturbing.
"She hit him first and any woman who hits a man deserves to be hit," described a woman interviewed by NBC News. The woman was describing the video of Rice knocking out Janay in response to her slapping his body in an elevator of the Revel Hotel in Atlantic City. So, it was okay for Rice to respond by whacking Janay in the head unconscious and then drag her by her feet like a slaughtered animal out of the elevator?
