Quentin Groves

CHARGE: Solicitation of a prostitute
A month after signing with the Browns, Groves got popped in a Cuyahoga County prostitution sting that saw fourteen others arrested.
According to the police report, Groves solicited the services of an undercover cop, agreeing to pay $100 for an hour of services.
Groves was apologetic in a public statement released shortly thereafter.

Really dude?  You're NFL player with a contract of $2.28 million over 2 years...and you can't afford more than a $100 hooker?  Arrested for stupidity as much as anything else.

Not to mention that he should be able to get it for free from a football groupie.

I've heard higher-end services typically require a credit card or some other piece of information which will be kept in their databases.   Despite this, your "for stupidity" remark does ring true.

Somebody needs to do this on a map, with the size of the circle around your city representing the # of arrests.  THAT'S a handy visual reference.

CHARGE: DUI

The Rams corner was spotted at 3 AM in Missoula, MT, driving with his headlights off. Refusing a breathalyzer test didn't help his case.


Um, refusing the Breathalyzer most certainly DID help his case, as any lawyer will tell you.

Glad to see only 1 guy from the Saints on here.

Still, that's a hell of a lot of players in just a 6 month period

I see trends in that list.

White players: DUI / Public intoxication
Black players: Assault / Battery and Illegal firearms.

Handy advice from Ahmad Brooks: if you're going to commit a violent crime, commit it against a young player trying to make your team, so the organization can lean on him not to press charges.

Like most illegal activities, it's a cash business.  Still, $100 for a hour?  Your average 6 or 7 would charge double that on BP in most cities.  I higher end girl would go from $3-500.  A porn star would be $1k-2k.  Why he felt the need to pay for it when I'm sure there are plenty of NFL groupies around...is beyond me...but to only pay $100...that's just moronic.  I'm sure he got a ton of crap from the other players....It's like "Dude, you have the cash to pay for a high end girl!"

Maybe in Montana it would. Here in Minnesota, unless you're WAY over the limit, the legal penalty for refusing the field breathalyzer is harsher than just getting the DUI.

Per dui.drivinglaws.org

"For example, Montana law allows an officer to take apreliminary breath test before you are arrested. This works like a field sobriety test. The officer can use the results to establish probable cause that you have been driving under the influence. If the results are above the legal limit, then the officer can arrest you and ask you to submit to another chemical test. You cannot refuse either the preliminary breath test or the later breath or blood test without facing a penalty for refusal.  "

As the man who wrote the article (the football one, not the DUI law one), when I said "didn't help his case", it was meant in the context of "didn't endear him to the arresting officer."

Either way, I may have gotten lucky on that one, it seems.

  The arrest rate for NFL players has averaged about 2.9% compared to 10.8% for men age 22 to 34 (based on FBI crime data by age for men in 2009).

Eh, I'd imagine that a $100 an hour hooker in Cleveland is about the same as a $400 an hour hooker in Vegas or New York.

/Not that I've ever engaged the services of a hooker in Cleveland, Vegas, or New York.

In pretty much every state they take your license for refusing to blow, but a lawyer can get it back for you in a few days.

Came here to say that... Having said that, seeing how the authors control for age, it'd be interesting to see how the numbers compare with, say, average arrest rates for men earning in excess of $250,000pa.

People with his money are much better off hitting college bars and offering cash to non-prostitutes.  $1000 for one night's work buys a lot of textbooks, and from his perspective since she's not a pro, she's cleaner and much more likely to actually get into it.

That link that says that NFL players get arrested a quarter as often as the general public said that 10.8% of men between 22 and 34 get arrested every year. That seems extremely high.

They're probably not accounting for the fact that Henry Earl (or his 28 year old counterpart) getting arrested 9 times counts.... 9 times. Instead of once.
