Former NFL wide receiver Bobby Sippio remained in jail Saturday on charges he and another man allegedly attempted to murder his girlfriend's brother, the Orlando Sentinel reported. Sippio, 31, and Santana Coats, 30, also were charged with armed robbery, aggravated battery and kidnapping. According to an Osceola sheriff's report, Sippio picked up Sergio Moore, 27, from his apartment in Orlando on Thursday about 11:00 p.m. Moore told police he thought they were going to help Coats move furniture but instead Sippio allegedly pulled a gun and they drove to a rural section of Osceola County, where he forced Moore out of the car. The report said Sippio and Coats started kicking and punching Moore before Coats pointed a gun at him. Sippio allegedly told Moore his sister could not save him. It is claimed that Coats and Sippio continued to terrorize Moore with the the gun as they drove him home after the beating. Moore suffered a broken nose, swollen left hand and wrist, and cuts to the top of his head and cheek. Sippio and Coats were arrested Friday. Sippio, who played in the NFL in 2007 with the Kansas City Chiefs, had spent the past two seasons with the Orlando Predators of the Arena Football League. A spokeswoman for the Osceola County Sheriff's Department said the Predators had released him.
