    Dolphins' Evans arrested on Miami Beach

    June 23, 2007

    MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- Miami Dolphins defensive tackle Fred Evans was arrested early Saturday after he refused to leave a taxi on South Beach and then fought with officers, police said.

    Police twice used a Taser gun on Evans, according to the arrest report, in attempts to subdue the 6-foot-4, 305-pound player who appeared in one game as a rookie last season with the Dolphins. Officers said they asked Evans to leave the taxi and, after he refused, they attempted to put him in handcuffs. He allegedly resisted, leading to the scuffle.

    Evans was charged with multiple counts of battery on a law enforcement officer and resisting with violence, along with single counts of disorderly intoxication and trespassing. One officer was allegedly bitten on the wrist and a female officer sustained scrapes on her left knee, police said.

    Dolphins coach Cam Cameron, in a brief statement, said the team was aware of Evans' arrest.

    "We will not condone this type of behavior," Cameron said. "I assure everyone it will be dealt with seriously."

    Evans' agent, Drew Rosenhaus, didn't immediately return a call seeking comment.

    He must not have used the "Don't you know who I am?" card.

    With over 1700 players in the NFL, a few players may have a run-in with the law. It's those who have one significant run-in or players with multiple run-ins, who must be seriously dealt with. Leave it to Goodell (since it seems teams don't want to discipline their players) to decide what kind of punishment this player merits once the facts are fully detailed.

    Goodell sure seems to have his plate full. Not only must he have concerns re Vick, Pacman & Johnson, other players just can't seem to stay out of trouble. I don't know if this player's alleged action warrants a suspension or whether a severe fine is warranted. I do know that he can't turn every NFL player into a choir boy. I just want the real offenders who continue to embarrass the NFL to get the boot.

    Well, at least he took a taxi instead of getting behind the wheel.

    That should count for something, shouldn't it?
