Keith McCants Arrested – Again


I’ve spent years on here blogging about Keith McCants being arrested for a variety of things that usually had to do with drug use. There was a time in 2008 when McCants would sit in jail without being able to make bail. A quick search of the archives shows there was an arrest in 2011 too.
Keith got back in the news today via yet another drug arrest, this time for crack. You know things have been bad for Keith when he has nearly two rows of mugshots on Google Image Search.
From WKRG:

Pinellas County Jail records show 50-year-old Keith McCants was arrested early Monday near St. Petersburg. He’s charged with a felony count of possession of crack cocaine and driving with a revoked or suspended license. He bonded out of jail, but records don’t list a lawyer.
Jail records show multiple arrests since 2010. His most recent arrest was in January, for driving with a suspended license. Court records show he faces a July 10 court date.
McCants, a Murphy High School graduate, was All-America at Alabama and was selected fourth overall by the Buccaneers in the 1990 NFL Draft. His career ended in 1995. He also played for the Oilers and Cardinals. McCants said he had 29 surgeries and suffered six concussions during his career and that his injuries caused an addiction to painkillers and subsequent street drug use.

A little reminder of McCants’ history for the millennials out there:

Among a number of individual honors, McCants finished his college career with 197 total tackles, including 16 tackles for a loss.[11] Additionally, McCants 119 tackles that year puts him tied for 6th all time for tackles in a single season by an Alabama player.[12] The February 12th, 1990 issue of Sports Illustrated ran an article that focused on McCants titled “The Young and the Restless”, that profiled his and other college juniors’ eventually successful attempts to declare for the NFL Draft before their senior season, a then-uncommon practice.[13][14] In December 2010, Bleacher Report named McCants the 33rd greatest player in Alabama Crimson Tide History.[15]
Before the draft, Ed Sherman of the Chicago Tribune described McCants as “the biggest star around”, with pro scouts “drooling over him”, and projected him to be “a virtual lock to be the top pick in next spring`s NFL draft”. [2]

Now 50, McCants has a half-dozen arrests just out of Pinellas County since 2010.
