Chargers Wide Receiver Arrested for Public Intoxication

February 16, 2011

It’s reported that San Diego Chargers wide receiver, Legedu Naanee, was arrested Saturday for resisting arrest and public intoxication in Indianapolis.  Around 3:20 a.m., Naanee was reported to have come across a live crime scene and, when asked, he had refused to leave.

According to San Diego Police officers, they arrested Naanee because they could smell a “strong odor of an alcoholic beverage on or about his breath or person.” After several attempts to get Naanee to take another route, officers attempted to arrest him and Naanee resisted. Police proceeded by using pepper spray on Naanee, and he continued to resist.

The Chargers, in regards to the incident said, “We’re disappointed to hear about the issue involving Legedu. We’ll monitor the situation and let the legal process run its course.

After NFL labor issues are sorted out, Naanee is expected to be a free agent. During his career, Naanee has had three touchdowns and 63 receptions for 746 yards.
