According to Cleveland police, 25-year-old defensive back, Gerard Lawson, was arrested sometime after 11 p.m. Saturday on DUI and hit-skip charges.
Sgt. Sammy Morris says, Lawson struck a parked car on West 6th Street and didn't stop. Cuyahoga County sheriff's deputies were in the area transporting a prisoner and witnessed the incident.
I know that 11:00 p.m. might not be late to some people, but to me, that would seem like the type of time that a curfew would be set. During the team's Brown vs. White scrimmage Saturday afternoon, Lawson was on the losing White team. That means that he should have been one of the players under curfew.
Let's see here...
- Disobeying curfew? Check.
- Driving under the influence? Check.
- Hitting a car and proceeding forward? Check.
- Fighting for a special teams roster spot at best? Check.
I think you can see where I'm going with this.
