Among the four Alabama players arrested on Monday, Brent Calloway looks to be the player in the least amount of hot water. Though, with a prior marijuana arrest, his water is still hot. Instead of Calloway quietly letting to legal process run its course and hoping that he is not kicked off the Alabama football team, Calloway decided that he would speak on his arrest earlier today. It all got started when Bama fan @kyle2lamb tweeting false information regarding the case (which has since been deleted), which lead to Calloway feeling the need to set the record straight. Someone should probably tell Calloway that he may want to take a vacation from Twitter for a while. The post Brent Calloway is talking about his arrest on Twitter for some reason first appeared on No Guts, No Glory.

  • Although actual knowledge of a superseding, preceding criminal intent - somewhat implied from the endless barrage of calumny over various online social networking services and microblogging services that enable its users to send and read text messages - always takes precedence, as a matter of law, over this particular, or any hereto, common law right of action: defamation, Calloway's constructive knowledge of a such an act - reasonably assumed from online hearsay - does not suggest actual knowledge; whereby, the finding of one or any proximate cause, as long as the original act was the approximate cause of the foreseeable criminal action, cannot be established because Calloway's constructive knowledge - albeit supported by weak circumstantial evidence: rummor, opinion, goosip, et al. - as a matter of fact, concludes that the accused superseding, preceding actions of others should not impact a dazed, confused slightly sleepwalking student - all of whom had constructive possession of this card lying around the dormitory - from mistakenly leaving the bedroom dorm and purchasing junk food snacks from a vending machine with actual possession of a stolen student ID card. Calloway's mistake does not reflect the spirit and character that his university's football organization recognizes and reflects through all their thoughts, words and deeds. It's obviously very disappointing and unacceptable what happened; however, actual knowledge in the precarious state of consciousness upon waking up from a deep sleep raises a few questions about the conclusion deduced from the court.

    Update: July 07, 2013
    1. Motion for summary judgment in Appellate Court - after verifying venue/jurisdiction.
    2. No new evidence - seeking judgment as a matter of law in Calloway's favor.
    3 Based on Jon Paepcke's interview with Calloway and reports from AL.com, more than one conclusion can reasonably be deduced: did or did not Calloway possess actual or constructive knowledge of the stolen student ID.
    4. Case Dismissed.
