|Beason arrested, capping a wonderful day here Posted by Darin at 11/30/2009 5:09 PM EST|
Beason has been under investigation for more than a week, but wasn’t taken in until Monday afternoon. He wasn’t jailed, and was released on a written promise to appear in court.
Beason was charged with a misdemeanor account of assault inflicting serious injury — aggressive physical force.
The incident occured after the Panthers win over the Atlanta Falcons.
“We were aware of the police department looking into the incident and have addressed it with Jon," Panthers general manager Marty Hurney said in a statement released by the team. "At this time there appear to be two different versions of what happened.”
Found this in Gantts blog. First thing that came to mind was what more can go wrong? This is a guy I respect and admire and is the last person I'd expect this from. But people make mistakes more often than not. I dont think this will be enough for a suspension but one can never know what the league or the team will do about it.
