Josh Booty to L.A.P.D. “Don’t Taser Me Bro!” They did Anyway

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on February 15, 2008

Josh Booty the less talented older brother of John David Booty got the biggest shock of his life in the literal sense after being subdued with a Taser after being arrested early Wednesday in Santa Ana on suspicion of driving under the influence.

Booty, a former professional baseball and football player, was shocked with the stun gun after being “uncooperative and belligerent” while being booked into Orange County Jail. If anyone has knowledge of where I can get a video of this please e-mail me. Your reward will be Joel and I promise not to pick on your favorite team for 7 days.

Police say during the struggle about 3:30 a.m. Wednesday Booty hit his eye on the ground or a table and suffered a black eye. He was taken to a hospital for treatment. He was later cited and released from jail. Ground, table or fist who knows right?

Booty was required to undress so he could be searched when he arrived at the jail. After the search, deputies told him to pick up his clothing, and he became uncooperative.

“We tried to restrain him, he pulled away, and he was throwing his arms out,” Sheriff’s Department spokesman John Amormino said. “Eventually we had to use the Taser to contain him. After the second Taser, he became cooperative and returned to his cell.”

My ass would have been cooperative after the first Taser, believe that.

F$U Makes Schedule Adjustments Due to the Self Imposed Super Duper Secret Probation

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on February 15, 2008

The F$U athletic department still reeling from the recent cheating scandal has decided to place itself on double super duper secret probation for two years.

An estimated 60 athletes will lose suffer some loss of eligibility. Two staffers, a tutor and learning specialist, already had been canned.

Among the corrective actions listed in the report is a requirement for all athletics staff members to attend a four-hour training program titled, “Decision-Making in the NCAA Compliance Environment.” F$U has also taken a page from the Phil Fulmer book as well. Staff members will be required to go on police ride-a-longs, early morning running & trim Bobby Bowden’s nose hairs.

“We believe that our investigation has been thorough and exhaustive,” said Florida State provost Larry Abele, who chaired the investigating committee. “This university and its athletics department have accepted responsibility, made changes in the process and systems and imposed penalties as warranted.”

Of course the school will not immediately able to explain how the probation, effective Wednesday, would affect the teams.

Some of the penalties already have gone into effect. About two dozen of the football team’s top players were suspended for the Music City Bowl on Dec. 31 in Nashville, Tenn., where the Seminoles lost to Kentucky. Many of those players will remain suspended for the first three games of the 2008 season.

Due to the probation and the suspensions F$U has adjusted its 08 football schedule. Instead of opening the season with teams like Miami and Clemson, F$U has decided to play the Ohio State card and open with Division I-AA teams Western Carolina, on Sept. 6, and Chattanooga on Sept. 13.

Western Carolina and Chattanooga both hail from Division I-AA’s Southern Conference — the home of back-to-back national champion Appalachian State, which earned acclaim in the fall for its victory at Michigan.

But the Catamounts and Moccasins, who were a combined 3-21, were by far the worst teams in their league last season.

“We had to give up a Monday night game, which I hated to give up because of the [lost] exposure,” Bowden said this week. “But there’s no way we would be ready to play a ranked team at that time.”

I hate to break it too Bobby but F$U hasn’t been ready to play a ranked team for a number of years now.
