Nick Fairley’s in the news.
Former NFL defensive tackle Nick Fairley was booked into Mobile County Metro Jail on Friday afternoon after being charged with two counts of menacing.
According to the Mobile County Sheriff’s Office’s jail log, the former Auburn standout entered jail at 4:48 p.m. CST Friday.
Arrested for menacing, hunh? That’s a shame. And no Second Chance U to fall back on.
I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say that life is too short for making bomb threats because a coach chose not to take a job at his alma mater.
The message posted to Twitter referenced by St. Matthews police matched those in pictures of tweets that were making the rounds on social media.
In the tweets, which were posted before noon Wednesday, the user wrote, “If Jeff Brohm doesn’t come, we burn down Trinity,” and “If you see a man running down frankfort with a gas can and wild look in his eye, its me,” among other messages.
It’s unclear if there were other accounts or tweets in question. The account associated with the tweets has since gone private. Attempts to reach the user were unsuccessful Wednesday night.
Wilkerson said Louisville Metro Police are assisting with the investigation and his department would be contacting the FBI to determine whether to pursue federal charges. It was unclear Wednesday night if they had made contact with the person behind the account.
They better be doing more than making contact.
So the dude who ran a ticket scam on Georgia fans last year with a fake Notre Dame offer decided to skip being sentenced to 180 days in jail, was captured on the lam and will now have a sentence of 1 to 5 years tacked on for escape. Brilliant!
The topper is that he apparently went back to the well.
He also has another tickets charge coming his way.
“Because of the publicity surrounding this case, we heard from another man who said he paid for tickets to the LSU game and never received them,” Sills said. “So apparently Mr. Cook didn’t learn his lesson. I’m going to charge him for that one, too.”
Okay, so a criminal mastermind he’s not, but after the publicity surrounding the Notre Dame fraud, there’s a Georgia fan out there who evidently isn’t the sharpest tool in the shed, either. Sometimes Google can be your friend, ‘ya know?
You know, I’d feel better about this if they’d come out and say whom they’re protecting.
I keed, I keed… I think.
Sports Illustrated runs a piece analyzing which schools had the least, most incidents on campus on gamedays in 2017, and only three from the SEC failed to make the list of the top 33: Kentucky, Missouri and Vanderbilt.
Clearly, if we’re ever going to talk about removing programs from the conference, we’ve got a starting point.
If you’re the West Virginia mascot, is getting popped for a DUI a crime or part of the persona?
I’m more than a little conflicted over this news.
On the one hand, it’s a visceral reminder that, for all the NCAA’s chest beating about being there for the kids, the organization really isn’t there for the kids.
On the other hand, at least I’m spared the sight of Mark Emmert ripping up the NCAA manual to make a personal point like he did with Penn State — a point that, by the way, was essentially neutered subsequently.
Shameful either way.
