Penn State RB busted peeing in public

It seems like a long time ago, but I can remember when I was in college, and I'd be walking home from a bar or a party really late at night or early in the morning.  Some of those walks were long, man.  Especially given the state a person is normally in while making those late night walks.  Inevitably, after the night of drinking, you'll have to pee as well.

So you find yourself about a mile from home, and you really have to pee.  What do you do?  Do you hold it and risk wetting your pants, or do you look at the world around you and just see one giant toilet?  If you're Penn State running back Silas Redd, well, I know what your answer is.
Penn State freshman backup tailback Silas Redd is in trouble with the law.

He was cited at 4:13 a.m. today by university police for allegedly urinating in public near the Agriculture Engineering building on campus.

Redd, from Norwalk, Conn., was charged with disorderly conduct, which carries a fine.
Hey, he was just trying to engineer some agriculture.  There are a lot of nutrients in beer, and Redd was just trying to share them with the earth below to help them survive the cold Pennsylvania winter.  He probably should be handed awards for caring so much about the planet, not being handed citations.

This is absolutely rediculous !  As stated above, pay the fine and move on.  I bet the police officer who arrested him, probably did the same thing himself within the last few weeks / months.  I'm sure JoePa will handle it, wihile at the same time, not think much of it.  Yes, we lost against Ohio State, but we also don't have an SEC attitude, that we "expect" to win every game.  I am a Penn State Alum, living in SEC country and thoroughly enjoy the football environment, however we certainly don't have the arrogance I constantly see down here.  Good luck to all ... and a shout out to Bama fans - they have the most welcoming fans I have every experienced.  Although we got spanked, it was a great trip.  Hope our fans treat you as well next year.

The difference between the SEC and the Big 10 is right here in the article.  In the SEC you have people stealing, beating up girlfriends, cheating, oh and a player taking six figures to play at a school.  In the Big 10 you have a young adult peeing in public after drinking, something I'm sure 80-90 percent of the college population has done a few times.

Move On. Nothing to see here. It's not like he threatened his girlfriend or got in a gun fight at a bar.
Stupid maybe? Big Deal? Definitely not!
Pay the fine and let's move on.
Besides all of God's creatures do this outside every day.
