In reply to: Javon McKinley was arrested posted by ryND
TMZ represents the lowest devolution of our society. A bunch of nosy paparazzi types following well known people around with cameras trying to report on anything Mr. and Mrs. Loser at home can point at to say "see, that guy/gal is no better than us!"
But the article is fascinating.
Not sure what is and isn't true, but it makes it seem like everything was OK, until he realized during the walk back that he was probably in deep $hit and tried to get away, unsuccessfully.
found him passed out in an Uber and had to walk him home.
I suspect that wouldn't go over well in the Gug.
Deep shit doesn't mean expulsion or anything that harsh, but I'm guessing more of a, oh shit, NDPD found me passed out and are escorting me to my dorm, the coaches are going to be pissed.
sounds like fairly deep ish to me. Tyler James reporting.
lied, that will be reported, too. NDInsider doesn’t do hatchet jobs.
NYPost has picked up the story, which is nice.
Charges are underage drinking, battery, resisting arrest. Misdemeanors. He is out on $250 bail.

You're relying on NDInsider as an authority when their lone source is a police report.
It doesn't matter which or how many media organizations have reported on it at this point, they're all relying on the same source, which is not terribly reliable itself.
Perhaps there is not. Either way, it is certainly better not to make judgments based on police reports. Or, on media reports based on police reports. As you suggest.
Perhaps that's how it happened. Or perhaps the police wrote a report favorable to them.
Especially when the only charge is resisting arrest.
I’m not sure whether he had any obligation for the cops to assist him home. Although I understand the police not wanting a drunk person to flee for his own safety. But if there’s no public intoxication charge, I’m having trouble seeing why they would have a right to detain him if he did not want help going home.
No matter the circumstances.
1) It doesn't add any value; and
2) It's a dumb position to take.
Circumstances always matter. That's the whole point of circumstances.
McKinley’s ND career might be over, but that’s that’s not what you said...
Times have changed a lot since then.
Give the kid one break
is as a whole, brutal. I will offer though, they are way ahead and on point on certain stories than others. But, I get your complaint.

From Ray Rice to Bruce Jenner, they nail it time after time.
the worst moments of other people’s lives. It’s sort of like the reverse Facebook. Instead of reading about the best 2% of the lives of a bunch of non-famous people we get to find out about the problems of famous people.
Put it this way, I could have lived my life comfortably without ever knowing about Ray Rice’s or Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner’s issues.

People may think Harvey Levin is a slimeball. Perhaps that's so. He's unwatchable on TV.
But I know one thing the man is not, and that is "stupid".
He's a University of Chicago trained lawyer who isn't about to see his valuable media franchise go under because of libel suits.
He goes after some of the richest, most powerful, most lawyered up people in sports and entertainment, succeeds in getting stories where all others fail, and consistently gets it right.
Appreciate him for what he is.
Some changes are adding information. Others are altering the story significantly without documenting the change. There are other websites that can help as well.
for that silly little misunderstanding between his fist and his wife’s face.
Ray Rice should have gotten away with it.
It was only the video coming out that made them change their stance publicly on their domestic violence policy.
