Draft scouts taking notice.
Actually got up this morning at 6:20 & was dicking around with some DVRs. Little bit of Shark Tank on ABC, a Hard Rock Calling from 2010 featuring Pearl Jam and then brought in the garbage cans. No big deal. Then I saw the NY Post front page on Newseum. Yeah, it seemed like it would be a big deal to the 6k BC followers (yes, subtract 500 or so porn bots). Darren Rovell H/T'd us and then Adam Schefter came in for the reach around for the ages. Damn, it felt good. JUMP!
Via: Nebraska Husker football player Alfonzo Dennard was arrested on suspicion of assaulting a Lincoln police officer early Saturday. Lincoln police said Dennard, 22, was fighting with another man outside a bar near 14th and O Streets about 2:15 a.m. When officers attempted to intervene, Dennard allegedly pushed and then punched one officer in the face. Homeboy was ranked by CBS as the 56th best player in the NFL draft. Ooops.
Via: It happened at around 11:20am at the Food Town in the 9500 block of South Kirkwood in southwest Harris County. Investigators say the suspect was wearing a Texans shirt when he walked in and handed the teller a note, claiming to have a gun. The teller handed over some cash and he fled. Perfect bank robbery costume in Houston. Blend right back in with the community. Much less attention getting than Flava Flav in an Astros hat.
Just when you think that Brett Favre's extended family has cleaned it up and gotten clean, the Gunslinger's nephew, Dylan, got back in the news today via a drug arrest. This guy was the 2009 Gatorade Player of the Year in Mississippi, ended up at Miss. St. and left the team in December before the Bulldogs played in the Music City Bowl. Next thing you know he's popped for weed possession. JUMP!
Via: It happened at the Green Bank in the 5000 block of San Felipe at around 3pm Tuesday.

The teller gave him some cash and the suspect fled on foot. The suspect is described as a black male in his 30s, approximately 5 feet 7 inches, and weighing 155 pounds. Should be quick case. Black guy wearing Astros cap.
Got this message from ESPN sideline reporter Jenn Brown earlier this evening: @bustedcoverage Used my tomato knife today to make a salad...thanks guys!! :) Most of you should remember how our sleuths figured out in the fall that Brown was sportin' a giant rock on her finger. One thing led to another and we splurged on a $25 tomato knife from the registry. Jenn got married at the beginning of the month. Now she's making salads. Yes, we're the best, ladies.
Via: Gainesville Police continued looking for a man believed responsible for the robbery of Peach State Bank just off the downtown Gainesville square early Tuesday afternoon. Gainesville Police Cpl. Joe Britte said the suspect in the incident is described as a white man with sandy blonde hair in his late 20s to early 30s. He said witnesses described the suspect as 5'11" to 6' tall with a slender build. Police say that's a Braves hat. We say it's an Alabama hat. We're right.
Close your eyes for a second. Conjure up the image of a 25-year-old white guy who still collects baseball cards. Add in some drama to this guy's life, like armed robbery at a Kmart. Yes, armed robbery of packs of baseball cards. He's from Wisconsin, so that should also be figured into this fictional character. Oh, and he still lives with his parents. Do you have an image? Does your character look anything like Joseph Marciniak? He should. JUMP!

ECU police say 22-year-old John Sieglinger of Raleigh was arrested Friday and charged with injury to personal property, trespassing and obstructing an officer.

In a media release, police said Kenneth Dewayne Emerson was arrested Monday afternoon and charged with burglary.

Roll Mother*&*!in' Tide!
Via: Detectives arrested Megan Denman, 29, of Fresno on Monday on suspicion of having sex with a minor and oral copulation, Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer said. The investigation found Denman was having an inappropriate relationship with the student, Dyer said.

Guess how many sideline reporters (that we know of) were at Jenn Brown's Easter weekend wedding. GUESS! One. Bonnie Bernstein. Brown, of ESPN Thursday Night Football fame, married actor Wes Chatham during an outdoor ceremony in Georgia and followed the nuptials with a reception where Bonnie snapped off a couple shots of our one-time sideline crush. We hope the couple enjoys the tomato knife we bought for them. PHOTOS! JUMP!
