He's lucky it's only for two weeks but the law ain't done with him yet so it could end up being more.

Damn... He tore the club up, eh ?

Steelers must know something.... They didn't take this stance with Ben.

Actually most of the tearing up was done on the ride home after clubbing.

With Ben is was word against word. With this dude it was driving erratically while drunk, hitting parked cars, injuring a lady in one of the parked cars, evading police and resisting arrest.

He kind of gave them no choice but to take a hard stance. Only 22 years old and he's really screwed up.
