The NFL’s problems are continuing to get worse, thanks to players who cannot seem to conduct themselves in an civilized manner.
Seattle Seahawks defensive lineman Malik McDowell, mug shot above, was arrested Sunday morning in Atlanta for disorderly conduct.
Bodycam footage of the incident is just going to make the NFL’s already awful season even worse.
The incident occurred Sunday morning, when McDowell was arrested after he allegedly “flipped out at a club over money he thought he was owed.”
The arrest came after a Georgia policewoman said she saw him getting into a verbal altercation outside the front doors of a club called SL Lounge.
McDowell was allegedly shouting at the head of club security about $600 he wanted to be paid back according to the incident report.
Club staff, and a friend of McDowell, repeatedly told the athlete he had not paid the money he claimed he wanted returned.
He was allowed back inside only to be kicked out once more after he began ranting about the money again. He reportedly refused to leave the club without the cash.
The policewoman said she was told McDowell “poured out a couple bottles of liquor inside and got booted.”
McDowell cursed at the officer, who managed to detain the player with the aid of her partner.
The officer said she thought she would have to taze McDowell or use pepper spray on him to calm him down, but did not need to use either.
Nevertheless, McDowell did not go quietly.
While attempting to put McDowell in the back of their cruiser, he was recorded on video saying, “F*** both of ya’ll hoe ass n*****, p**** ass cops, I bet I get out, I got more money than ya’ll, ya’ll ain’t got enough money for me, p**** ass crackers, broke ass n*****.”
Yet he was all in twist over $600 — money he apparently had never paid in the first place, such class.
Police booked McDowell for disorderly conduct. He was released on $325 bond.
McDowell is another example of the vapid entitlement, prima dona mentality that we see with so many NFL players. Once considered role models, these trouble-making football players are nothing but an embarrassment to their teams and the sport of football.
