Former Ohio State tailback Maurice Clarett was indicted Thursday on new charges related to a highway chase and violent struggle with police. Clarett, found with three semiautomatic handguns and an automatic rifle -- all loaded -- in his SUV, was indicted on five charges that include carrying a concealed weapon and two counts of failure to comply with an order from a police officer. The 22-year-old was arrested Aug. 9 after authorities say he tried to flee a police officer. Police noticed a vehicle driving erratically, beginning a highway chase that ended when police spiked the tires of Clarett's SUV. Officers said their stun guns did not work on Clarett because he was wearing a bulletproof vest. Instead, police used pepper spray to gain control of and handcuff Clarett. (INFO)
Maurice Clarett has found himself in the news for all the wrong reasons. He's been talked about more for all his "problems", than he has for his supposed athletic abilities. I can't remember the last time I actually heard a football story about this jackass. He needs some help because he just seems like an out of control kid that doesn't learn lessons too well. Maybe some jail time will slow his role and help him think about all the great opportunities that he's f%*!ed up. BUT with all the chances that busted athletes get, some coach will probably get him out of his legal troubles and put him on his team, only to have this idiot go out and do some more crazy shit.
