Chargers wide receiver Legedu Naanee was arrested Saturday in Indianapolis for public drunkenness and resisting arrest. The 2007 fifth-round draft pick may have sealed his fate with the Chargers, according to Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune.
The account of Naanee’s arrest is, quite frankly, hilarious:
According to police, Naanee came across an active crime scene at about 3:20 a.m. and was told he would have to turn around or go in another direction. Naanee, who according to police had a “strong odor of an alcoholic beverage on or about his breath or person,” asked the officer why he was being “such an (expletive).”
The police officer said after several attempts to get Naanee to leave the scene failed, he told Naanee he was under arrest. Naanee “actively began to pull away” and the officer used pepper spray but Naanee continued to resist.
Eventually he was handcuffed and as he was being walked to the police car, Naanee said, according to police, “Do you know who I am? I am an NFL player and I’m going to sue your a**.”
Naanee is a free agent (once the CBA gets figured out, of course). He has never fully blossomed into his potential as a slot receiver, but his versatility makes him a viable plug-in option off the bench.
