    Wide receiver Travis Taylor was arrested early Monday outside a downtown Minneapolis nightclub and booked on misdemeanor charges of fifth-degree assault, disorderly conduct and interfering with pedestrian traffic.

    Lt. Amelia Huffman said officers were attempting to disperse a large, unruly crowd at 2:30 a.m. in front of 311 First Ave. N., so an ambulance could get through.

    "Taylor was ordered by the officers to get into a limo bus awaiting him," Huffman said. "He did not do as directed but prevented the bus from leaving. After Taylor continued to ignore the officer's order, the officer turned to escort Taylor away from the bus to clear the street. Taylor pulled his arm away from the officer and began pushing the officer. The officer used his Taser to gain control of Taylor and took Taylor into custody."

    According to Lt. Greg Reinhardt. They wanted Taylor to get into a waiting limousine-bus. Reinhardt said Taylor refused.

    "Mr. Taylor pulled away and was given many verbal warnings," Reinhardt said. "He appeared to be under the influence of alcohol. The officer took the proper steps and Mr. Taylor forcibly put his hands on the officer."

    The other three Vikings to get in trouble since training camp began include receiver Koren Robinson (since released), safety Dwight Smith and defensive backs coach Joe Woods. Robinson was arrested for drunken driving and fleeing police in August, and Smith received a citation for indecent conduct later that month. In December, Woods was arrested and charged with two counts of driving while impaired.

    Being drunk, disobeying and pushing police officers around in the early hours New Years Day can earn the privilege of being tazered.

    Amazing the NFL doesn't cover in rookie orientation meetings how to cooperate with police, and not get tasered.

    Former Cincinnati Bengal DeDe Dorsey, a backup running back and special teams player for the Indianapolis Colts, faces one misdemeanor count of carrying a handgun without a license after he was stopped for speeding by the Indiana State Police on Wednesday(January 3, 2007) night. Dorsey also was ticketed for speeding.

    He was released after posting a $15,000 bond and is scheduled for a pretrial conference Wednesday.

    According to Sgt. Dave Bursten of the State Police, Dorsey was driving 76 mph in a 55-mph zone when he was stopped by a trooper on I-465 at Michigan Road. The trooper said he saw what looked like a gun case in the passenger compartment of Dorsey's 2007 Tahoe and asked him for a permit.

    Dorsey said he wasn't carrying the permit but had it at home, so the trooper followed Dorsey to his Carmel residence, where no permit surfaced. The trooper ran a check of state records and no permit was found under Dorsey's name, so he was arrested.

    The gun in the case was a .45-caliber Springfield semiautomatic, and Dorsey also had an AR15 in the Tahoe that he said belonged to a friend who had a permit.

    A Colts official said Thursday night the club was aware of the matter but declined to comment.
    ***********************************************************
    DeDe signed with the Bengals as an undrafted rookie free agent and was waived during the final cuts and signed by the Colts.

    He had the gun in plain site when pulled over. Had it just been under the seat the gun would not have been discovered.

    The Bengals Official Website Proudly Proclaims the Arrest of their 2006 1st round draft pick!!

    Bengals cornerback Johnathan Joseph was arrested in Boone County, Kentucky overnight on a marijuana possession charge.

    According to published reports, Joseph was a passenger in a car driven by a woman that had a suspended license and was driving slowly and weaving. When a Boone County sheriff's deputy asked Joseph to get out of the vehicle, he smelled marijuana, and the deputy searched Joseph's black backpack with a Super Bowl logo and found a bag of marijuana in a pouch, the arrest report said.

    The reports said Joseph was released Monday morning, and his first court appearance is scheduled for Feb. 5, the day after the Super Bowl. Marijuana possession is a misdemeanor that carries a maximum of one year in jail and a maximum $500 fine.

    According to the NFL substance abuse policy, first-time offenders are usually fined a game check and not suspended.

    But the Bengals are continuing a string of offenses that players suggested contributed to an 8-8 season that cost them the playoffs and caused head coach Marvin Lewis to vow to be tougher in the upcoming season.

    Joseph became the ninth Bengals player to be arrested since Dec. 15, 2005.

    The Bengals don't comment on on-going litigation.
