A few days after the NFL assured its players that, even though there’s no CBA and the owners are locking them out, the personal conduct policy still applies, players keep getting arrested.

McCann Last week, Raiders T Mario Henderson (allegedly carrying a concealed firearm) and Vikings CB Chris Cook (allegedly brandishing a firearm) were placed in handcuffs.

This time it was Cowboys CB Bryan McCann, who (according to the Dallas Morning News , ) was arrested early Saturday morning and charged with public intoxication.

He was arrested at 3 a.m. Saturday, taken to a detox center and released eight hours later.

McCann’s most impressive play during his rookie year last season was a 101-yard interception return he made vs. the Giants.


UPDATED (10:50 p.m.): McCann has released a statement (via the Morning News ) :

"To my family, friends, coaches, teammates, and all Dallas Cowboy & SMU fans,

My good name and reputation mean everything to me. I have never been arrested before and take pride in conducting myself at all times in a responsible and respectful manner off the football field. I was not intoxicated and did not pose a danger to myself or others.

I am very grateful that, due to the Constitution and Americans' strong and enduring belief in due process, I am presumed innocent of this public intoxication charge because I am innocent. I look forward to vigorously defending myself in a court of law. I thank you for your continued support.''

Cowboys' McCann arrested

McCann gets arrested for public intoxication in the Dallas/Fort Worth area of Texas. Yeah, I can see how the moral fabric of their community was ripped and broken from such a heinous act. The fact that Jerry "Skeletor" Jones released such a promising young player over petty BS is a not-so-subtle reminder of his ego problems. Don't be such a hypocrite for cryin out loud.

Funny, He didn't shoot himself in the foot at a bar! He didn't have sex with a minor and he tried to do the right thing and not drive. Is this even a story? The guy had a few drinks big woop! Work on getting the season going!

Cowboys' McCann arrested

He sounds sincere.  I was arrested for a DUI.  I had 2 drinks over a three hour period.  I was so nervous when they did the sobriety test they thought I was drunk.  They handcuffed me and took me to the station and the station chief told me (after I said I didn't want to take the test) that he has being doing this for 15 years that he was positive I was drunk/over the legal limit and they would forcibly take blood from me  if I refused.  I blew a .02 and .03 which is well below the limit and they let me go with no charges.  The station chief even shook my hand and congratulated me.  Bottom line is he is correct he is presumed innocent until proven guilty and if he has never been arrested before and has never been a problem, he SHOULD get the benefit of the doubt.
