Bears RB Garrett Wolfe arrested

Sunday was a bad day for Bears running back Garrett Wolfe. The 2007 third-round draftG. Wolfe pick was arrested in Miami Beach and charged with retail theft, disorderly conduct, assaulting a police officer and resisting arrest with violence. Bond was set at $11,500.

The whole thing reportedly started when Wolfe refused to pay his $1,572 bill at Cameo Night Club in Miami. ‘‘He became aggressive while being ejected by bouncers, and two off-duty officers were summoned,’’ Officer Juan Sanchez said, via the Chicago Sun Times. ‘‘They gave him the opportunity to settle his bill, and he refused. He attacked one of the officers. Both officers suffered minor injuries.’’ And, judging from his mug shot, so did Wolfe.

According to a later report by Neil Hayes of the Sun Times, Wolfe smelled of alcohol, had bloodshot eyes and slurred speech. He threatened to sue the officers and at one point said, “Let’s compare bank accounts.”

This could prove to be very costly in the long run. The diminutive third-down back is a free agent and has not consistently shown the playmaking prowess that made him a third-round pick. Even before this episode, it would have been risky for a team to sign Wolfe.

These "facts" are incorrect.

First of all.... I am unimpressed, but not surprised by the coverage of this story.  The media seems to like to paint pictures of people to make their story more juicy or to make a villain within a story in order to give readers what they want to see.  The quotes in many of the articles I have read are strategically placed and there is nothing leading to what was said on the other end.  The only person that could've vouched for any of the "quotes" by Mr. Wolfe are those that were there during the altercation.

It is known that nightclubs will try to take advantage of patrons, assuming they are intoxicated.... This especially would be true of a sports figure outside of his own town.  I pose this question, is it possible that Mr. Wolfe refused to pay an incorrect tab and then was treated disrespectfully?  Knowing how the press (and all of you) would jump to make this person out to be someone terrible... Do you not think for a second that they could have gotten physical with him first and that he reacted?  

I follow it with this.... if this were the case, what can he do about it?  It is the bouncers word (a boys club that will lie for their counterparts) against his... Someone who this country is already looking to fit into their stereotype.  I challenge you all to get the facts before jumping to conclusions... And facts do not come from one sided articles.  

My last point...   you are a racist.  I hope that this is something you can accept as a part of who you are and you take this as an opportunity to better yourself through knowledge.  There is a whole world out there that you will miss out on wearing the blinders that you are.  Good luck.

He was lucky the whole incident didnt take place in Chicago..He wouldnt be able to walk for weeks when our cops got done with him. And I would condone it.  Fight with the cops?..Pay the price!

Why the hell were off-duty cops called?  Shouldn't the ones that were actually working have been doing something?  The bears will be better off without him any way, he never did anyting for them.

Finally!

An NFL player actually commits a crime that is sort of bad ass. Thank you Garrett Wolfe.

I was getting so sick of all of the stories about NFL players that were beating up on women. What a bunch of pansies.

This is the kind of crime you should expect from an NFL player, a 5' 7" guy brawling with bouncers and police officers. Much manlier than beating up on your girlfriend. That's more like what the NFL is about.

Thanks for bringing some of the bad ass back into the crime by NFL players. Fight in bars, not at home with a woman.

See?  Like Ray said - no football, crime goes up. Just to clarify Rays statement - he meant with no football PLAYER related crimes will go up.

"charged with retail theft, disorderly conduct, assaulting a police officer and resisting arrest with violence"  And the NFL will reward this guy with a multimillion dollar contract. 

AND R Goodell will do the same he did for Mike Vick and the rest to the National Felon League (NFL)  - NOTHING.  See, they are all there still playing football.  So Wolfe can continue to do whatever he wants as there simply isn't a penalty in the NFL for breaking the law.  Goodell is a big zero of a commissioner.

Another one bites the dust. A man without a contract, who has not yet made enough money to last the rest of his life, and who reportedly has wasted what he did make, has now thrown what little chance he did have away. Good riddance to bad thug rubbish. If he was any good he could have stayed in Chicago and got comped instead of having to go to Miami where hey don't know how bad he was. They know now. LOL
