Of course we were getting tired of the NFL players being arrested for DUI & disorderly conduct. Give us a college scholarship athlete going armed robbery any day of the week and it’s instant Cuff ‘Em material. Enter West Virginia linebacker Branko Busick, who is not having a very good summer. He was arrested this week after allegedly holding a gun to a guy and demanding money.
Officers responded to a call, shortly after 5 p.m. Monday from a man who said another man had threatened him with a gun at an apartment on High Street.
The caller claimed that a man had pointed a gun at him and two acquaintances and demanded money from them while they were inside the apartment, police said.
After telling the man that he had no money, the man struck him repeatedly with the gun before forcing him out of the apartment and onto the street, according to police.
Busick was identified as one of the males and was taken into custody, charged with armed robbery, police said.
It’s actually surprising for us to not have more stories this summer about footballers thieving, stealing condoms, ripping off Wal Marts, etc. Maybe more have turned to selling stupid Orange Bowl rings.
Anyway, Branko’s father was a former WWF wrestler. Remember Big Bully Busick? We don’t either. It’s always good when a kid gets in trouble and we get to rack our brains remembering a heal from back in the day. Thanks, Branko.
