Daily Wire reports that on average, one National Football League (NFL) player is arrested each week.
“The average time between arrests is just seven days, while the record without an arrest is slightly more than two months, at 65 days, according to NFLarrest.com, which “provides an interactive visualized database of National Football League player Arrests & Charges,” the site says.”
“Players get arrested for a variety of crimes: drunk driving, drug offenses, domestic violence, assault and battery, gun violations, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, theft, burglary, rape and even murder.”
Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol (DUI) and drug offenses are the most common charges file by police against NFL players – followed by domestic violence and assault – according to the article:
As the article concludes, maybe they aren’t the ones to be lecturing to us about police brutality and how oppressive the United States is.
Washington Free Beacon posted the arrest records of some who participated in the ‘protests’:

These arrest records only touch on past run-ins that protesting NFL players have had with law enforcement.
It’s really sad that the players are falling for these fake free speech protests. The left wants to destroy football. It’s one of the American institutions the left hates and the players and owners are playing into it.
