It's been a busy offseason crime-wise for NFL players, and this is just ten of them. The actual number of arrests is currently at 21. That may change as we're posting this...

Rey Maualuga
LB Cincinnati Bengals, Arrested: 2/10/2012

Rey was cited for misdemeanor assault after allegedly punching a bar manager. The manager of downtown Cincinnati bar Luxe said Maualuga was involved in a bar fight over the weekend when he popped the poor guy right in the face. By his proud expression, it looks like he thought it was worth it.

Johnny Culbreath
OT, Detroit Lions, Arrested 1/23/2012

Take one look at his eyes in this mughsot and tell us what he was arrested for. You guessed it. While staying at a Country Inn and Suites, a hotel clerk called the police to report that a guest was smoking marijuana (ooooh, call the SWAT team). Surveillance videos had shown Culbreath putting something in a hallway drawer, and when the police asked him what he put in there, he answered, “two blunts.” How's that for honesty.

Jarriel King
Former OL Seattle Seahawks, Arrested: 2/26/2012

According to the arrest warrant, King and another man had forcible sex with a 25-year-old woman after returning from a nightclub. The victim was drinking P Diddy’s favorite Ciroc vodka and smoking weed at King’s home when she became dizzy and plopped down on the bed. The two men allegedly sexually assaulted her, then graciously gave her a ride home the next morning. What gentlemen. Jarriel was cut by team a few weeks later.

Samson Satele
OL Indianapolis Colts, 3/17/2012

Arrested around 4 a.m. and charged with disorderly conduct at an Aiea, Hawaii shopping center, home to several restaurants and bars. We hope we didn't mix up his photo with Maualuga's.

Nick Fairley
DT Detroit Lions, 4/3/2012

Arrested in Mobile on 2nd degree marijuana possession, a misdemeanor in Alabama. After several calls came in about a suspicious Cadillac Escalade driving around in a Mobile neighborhood, police pulled over the car. Inside was Nick, the driver of the car, along with a strong smell of marijuana and a small amount in the ashtray. He was arrested and posted a $1,000 bond shortly after.

Nick Fairley (arrested again)
DT Detroit Lions, 5/27/2012


The hard-headed never learn. His second arrest in as many months, charged with DUI and attempting to elude police. For some reason, Nick seems a lot happier in this one, a more serious offense. Fairley's graduation from misdemeanor to felony took place shortly after 1 am in Mobile, AL. He was also ticketed for reckless driving, no proof of insurance and having an open container of alcohol. Way to go Nick.

Caleb King
Former RB Minnesota Vikings, 4/28/2012

Caleb King was arrested on suspicion of third-degree assault in the beating of another man outside a birthday party. The fight allegedly started after victim said King looked like comedian Eddie Murphy, so he understandably fractured the man's skull. Cut by the team three days later.

Koa Misi
LB Miami Dolphins, 3/30/2012

Arrested by fugitive squad on warrant related to battery charge in California. On April 15, 2011, Misi gained entrance to an apartment in Isla Vista, California by punching a hole through its wooden front door. A 19-year-old man who had been sleeping inside the apartment was punched in the eye by Misi.

Justin Blackmon
WR Jacksonville Jaguars, 6/3/2012

Arrested in Stillwater, Okla., charged with his second DUI arrest. A Breathalyzer test showed the first-round pick of the Jacksonville Jaguars had a blood alcohol level of .24 -- three times the legal limit. Way to go rookie, hasn't even played a game in the NFL yet.

Aldon Smith
LB San Francisco 49ers, 1/27/2012

Charged with driving under the influence in Miami Beach. No back story here, just your run of the mill drinking and driving arrest.

Rolando McClain
LB Oakland Raiders, 11/30/2011

Although not in 2012, we just had to include this one solely on the merits of one of the funniest arrest photos we've seen in years. During an altercation, Rolando allegedly held a gun to a man's head and fired shot by his ear in Decatur, AL. The man allegedly begged him not to shoot him. He didn’t. Love the matching belt and cell phone case. Stay classy Rolando.
