Joey Porter arrested in California
 
Glad Skins didn't sign this fool. This is not the type of attention this team needs.


BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (AP)—Authorities say NFL linebacker Joey Porter(notes) has been arrested in Bakersfield on suspicion of drunken driving and accused of assaulting an officer and resisting arrest.

The California Highway Patrol says the 33-year-old player was confronted by officers early Saturday in a fast-food parking lot.

Porter refused to provide his driver’s license and began to roll up his window when asked to leave the car. Police say that when an officer reached to unlock the door Porter slapped the officer’s hand.

Porter eventually got out and complied with orders, placing his hands behind his back. He and a passenger were arrested.

The 11-year veteran recently signed with the Arizona Cardinals. He also has played for Pittsburgh and Miami.

I have never liked Porter and I was actually kind of happy when he signed with Arizona instead of us. As F'd up as it may be, I couldn't help but laugh when I heard this.

Sure I'm glad we didn't pay Porter, but the situation there seems a little strange. I'll be curious to hear if he really was drunk.

I don't like Porter. Never have. But to open up another can of worms, in general I don't like police either. Most experiences I've had with them, they're a bunch of power-tripping bullies. One of the cops reached into Porter's car through the window to unlock the door, Porter "slaps" his hand, and gets charged with assault? LOL.

That's assault? I'll tell you what's assault: On Friday after work I went out to a bar in Bethesda for a few beers with a co-worker. When we were leaving the bar, the cops were talking to some guy who was in the passenger seat of a cab that was stopped right in front of the place. I couldn't hear what the guy said, but the cops (two of them, both pretty big guys) opened the door and yoked this dude out the car, and when he slid out of the seat, the first thing that hit the pavement was his forehead. He wasn't resisting, wasn't fighting back, nothing. Then one of the cops dropped a knee on the guys back to pin him down while he handcuffed him. All the while the guy was like "what the hell did I do? At least tell me what I did!" The cops didn't answer him, but they were both laughing out loud. I was disgusted. It was so excessive. So I said out loud, "hey buddy, if you want a witness on your behalf, I'm your man." The bigger of the two cops came over and got about two inches from my face and asked me if I wanted to be next. I didn't budge or say a word, I just stared at the guy, nose to nose. He then smirked, looked me up and down, called me a "punk ass," and then went and threw the other guy into the back of his cruiser. Eff that.

I know there are plenty of good men and women in law enforcement in this country. However the incident I saw the other night is not even close to the first time I've seen that kind of meat head BS from police. IMO, cops are generally rude bullies. I'll even call out my own family on this one. My cousin is a sherriff in Virginia and he's a total jerk.

Porter lacks a little something "between the ears."

I hate to say this, but I always wonder when a cop gets killed, how many people he beat up or what did he do before he was shot. We know that wont get reported. You always hear how great of a person he or she was, but not how many people he shot or beat down no nothing.

I agree with both parts of your post. Not saying I wanted Porter, but the way it has been reported, the cops come off as the ones that went over board. all three charges were reported as misdemeanors, so I doubt anything will come out of this.

There's only one way to combat that problem...and it is a prevalent one, and that is to Record IT! The only things cops respond to is disciplinary action and you will never get a judge or police commissioner to side with a citizen without clear evidence. Everytime you see a cop doing something out of line, pull out the cell phone and start shooting.

In my opinion, there are many good police officers, but just as many boneheaded bullies who signed up to be a cop because they wanted the power to bully people and be "in control". Keep the departments on their toes and eventually, the disciplinary system will weed out the bad apples. It is a thousand times better today than in the 70s and 80s where most major metro police departments were as crooked as the criminals they were busting.

Porter, (and others) should realize that you just can't back-talk or ignore an order from a cop (good or bad one), and expect them to blow it off. They will come after you. Sounds like Porter didn't feel like "subordinating" himself to an authority figure and got a night on a cold piece of concrete because of it.
