Price Per Head: More Arrests of Sports Stars

aaronSports celebrities are popular with price per per head agents but lately some have been getting attention for their not so stellar behavior. Of course the most obvious was the June 26th arrest of New England Patriot’s tight end Aaron Hernandez for the murder of Odin Lloyd.

In a statement Wednesday, Patriots coach said that he was “disappointed”

“It’s a sad day, it’s a really a sad day on so many levels,” Bill Belichick said, reading from a prepared statement. “Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of the victim, and I extend my sympathy, really, to everyone that’s been impacted. A young man lost his life. And his family’s suffered a tragic loss, and there’s no way to understate that.”

Antonio Morrison of the Florida Gators was arrested Sunday morning on two misdemeanors, after allegedly barking at a police dog. To make matters worse, this was Morrison’s second arrest in 5 weeks.

Although the charges have since been dropped, Morrison will likely face a one or two game suspension when the season begins.

According to the Associated Press, State Attorney Bill Cervone revealed that the “dismissal is based on the lack of evidence to warrant much less legally sustain those charges, and the complete inappropriateness of pursing court action against Morrison, or anyone else, under the circumstances involved.”

Gators coach gave an official statement; “I’m extremely disappointed in Antonio Morrison’s decision making,” Gators’ coach Will Muschamp said in an official statement after the arrest. “He has been suspended from the team and will miss at least two games to begin the season.”

This suspension will affect the price per head odds on the team, and delay them likely until next week.

Ausar Walcott, Cleveland Browns rookie linebacker was also arrested on June 26th for attempted murder after punching a man outside a club in New Jersey. Pay per head sportsbooks have learned that Walcott has since been released by the Browns.

Alfonzo Dennard of the New England Patriots and Eric Wright of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers
were arrested July 11th and July 12th respectively on suspicion of DUI, and are facing a court hearing to decided their fate. No word at price per head sites as to whether either will face suspensions.
