Apparently when Elvis decided to leave the building he wanted to make sure that everyone knew it.
Denver Broncos sack master Elvis Dumervil was arrested in Miami Saturday night on charges of aggravated assault with a firearm. He was later released on $7,500 bond (or pocket change for a guy guaranteed $43 million in his current contract).
Should Elvis actually get charged and convicted we could see the next Michael Vick in a few years; the charge is a felony that could get him up to five years. If you listen to his attorney, nothing actually happened and once the investigation is over no charges will be filed (translation--it pays to be an NFL superstar).
At the time, no real details of whatever the incident is have been released. However, in the past he has had a bit of a temper. Last year he was charged with assault and disturbing the peace after an altercation with a parking attendant. By time his lawyers were done the charges were dismissed.
If the last couple weeks are any indication, NFL teams might want to start thinking about calling for an earlier start to training camp in order to give guys something to do. Last weekend Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson was busted for resisting arrest when he failed to leave a night club.
Philadelphia Eagles running back Dion Lewis pulled the fire alarm at his hotel when he couldn't get back. It sounds silly, but it is actually a felony.
One can only wonder who is going to get in trouble next weekend.
(Watch Elvis do what he does best!)
