Default Police Drop all Charges Against Fred Weary

KHOU with video of the post arrest.

Chronic Story

AP story

http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/news;_yl...v=ap&type=lgns

The Chronic story says he wasn't hurt. With his cardiac risk factors, I am guessing he will be getting a good physical.

With the time he'll miss for tests/questioning, does McKinney have the inside track on the starting spot?

Great so you couldn't read to find this thread and are consistently judgmental about football players who you have no way of having full info on.

One sentiment I echo in those deleted posts though is the question of how the new regime will handle this. I expect it to look a lot like the Marcus Coleman DUI when it's all said and done.

The way the Texans deal with things like this comes mostly from the top (Bob McNair) IMO and since that hasn't changed I doubt their response to this kind of situation will. Still I'll be paying attention to see if they're going to do things any differently.

Personally, I think it will depend on if they can see the dash cam video.

If the video shows outrageous stuff by Weary, no matter how iffy the original stop was, I would expect for them to take some sort of action.

If the video is not outrageous, then maybe not.

If they can't see the video, I am guessing that they will really listen to what Weary has to say about this. I am guessing he has enough stored good will with the team for them to find him credible.

Nothing like being Tasered and kept in jail pending charges. I am guessing he didn't sleep too good last night.

I personally hope (assuming that Weary's behavior at the scene wasn't too over the top) that the Texans do not discipline him. The Texans are in a bad spot. If just driving around Reliant Stadium looking at police officers in the middle of the afternoon makes you an object of "suspicious behavior," I am guessing a lot of the players for the team feel at risk, especially if a guy like Fred Weary can be busted.

This may be one of those situations that the Texans need to be on the player's side, and save the wrath of the team for those situations when someone is DUIing or doing something overtly bad--instead of getting into a bad situation that wouldn't have happened had you not just been driving by your workplace.

It's been almost 24 hours right, so it's either time to let him go or charge him?

I agree TC, unless he made something REAL BAD, the entire team should show up in his support.

We'll see..

Here's some news that isn't public yet, but I have my uh sources.

He was charged with resisting arrest. This is a class A misdemeanor. The maximum punishment is 1 year, but I can't see that happening given even the circumstances the police have made public.

To prove resisting arrest, you have to intentionally obstruct a peace officer from effecting an arrest. Under the law, at a minimum they have to show some sort of intentional physical act against the police officer, and not just pulling your arms away from the cuffs.

It is likely that if the police said that he resisted arrest, the DA would accept charges to support the police officer, especially since the taser was involved.

It is no defense to resisting arrest that the arrest was made unlawfully--i.e. pretextually in violation of his Constitutional rights.

There should be a dash cam video of the scene.

His first court date is 11/21. He is in Pam Derbyshire's court. She has a reputation for being a fair, sensible judge.

His bond was $1000 and he made bond with a local bonding company. If everything goes the way it normally does, he should be out of jail this morning.

No word who his lawyer is yet. I am sure that it is a good one.

So there you go.

Thanks TC, sounds like everything is going "according to plan".

I guess we'll get a statement from either the Texans or Weary himself later today. I sure hope so

When I watched last week's game I noticed a few things - Winston played well in his limited snaps (whichi had more to do with him being fresh) and Lundy did a nice job of picking up blitzes.

So there you go.
I think some one needs to drive him to and from work the next several days. This business of being able to make a case out of no case has bothered me for a long time. In dredging (hobby) we have the same kind of problem. If you are ordered out of the water because someone thinks you are doing something wrong, you must obey or face the resisting charge. You have to go to court and prove they are wrong. Again, you may well be doing nothing wrong and not violating any rules. We have a problem with environmental rangers.

I was actually thinking of this "driving to and fro the Reliant". How much would it cost this organization to pick up and drive home all of their players?

I don't think the Texans need to protect the players from the police.

I agree, but it could serve other purposes also, making sure the players don't go out drinking after work. You could even have someone cook for them and tug them in at night.

The Swedish soccer team had a European Championship Qualifier a month or two ago. Their top forward "Slatan" crawled out a window after "light's out" and went to a bar for a couple of beers. Houston Texans Day-and-Night care could take care of stuff like that too

It is a very large city, you have all types. My brother is a police officer for a small town and ummmm to put it mildly, he is an A-Hole. He is always bragging about how many tickets he writes. And he wonders why I do not talk to him that often.
