04:10 PM ET 04.26 | Day 1 of the 2013 NFL Draft was not supposed to be eventful for LSU cornerback Tharold Simon, but it turned interesting when he was arrested Thursday night on charges of public intimidation, resisting an officer, and unnecessary noise violation while sitting in his car. Simon's agent Peter Schaffer immediately set out to do damage control, and reportedly told Pro Football Talk that he has "20 witnesses" who say that Simon did nothing wrong.

I have this strange feeling I've read this before somewhere...

So the lesson is that if you're considering a career in stupid crime, and you're a defensive back, LSU is the place for you. Simon and Honeybadger can share a cell someday.

Wow, it really does look like it was a cop being a dbag. Someday I'll learn to take that possibility into consideration in all cases.

Hmm... According to two articles I just saw a lot of the witnesses didn't know Simon, so it's not as apt to be a bunch of teammates covering for him. Besides which my trust of the police has eroded to the point where I'm surprised my jumped-to conclusion wasn't that the cop was being a dbag.

By the way, why is the same thread posted back to back? Oh never mind.
