The July 4th Knucklehead Marathon Part Seven
Our seventh winner is Miami Dolphin football player Frederick Evans. He gets the award for the following
A 305-pound Miami Dolphins lineman was subdued with a Taser gun and arrested after he threw up in a taxi and got into a scuffle with Miami Beach police officers early Saturday morning.To top it off, the lineman was already on probation in Texas for posession of marijuana. You'd think this Miami Dolphin would have learned his lesson, but apparently not. Frederick Evans is our seventh Knucklehead winner of the Day.
Frederick Evans, 23, was charged with battery on a law enforcement officer, disorderly conduct, resisting with violence, and trespassing, police said.
According to police and a cab driver, this is what happened:
The defensive tackle, who smelled of alcohol, climbed into Dieudonne Telfort's cab on Washington Avenue and lied down in the back seat.
After Evans threw up, he took a swing at Telfort but missed.
Thirty minutes later, at 6:21 a.m., the police arrived at the scene, outside a club on the 1400 block of Washington Avenue. Evans was still lying down in the backseat.
Officers ordered Evans to get out of the cab, but he refused, and officers proceeded to place him under arrest. Evans allegedly began cursing at them as they were handcuffing him, then took a swing at one of the officers.
One officer was bitten on his left wrist and suffered several bruises; another had scrapes and bruises on her left knee, police said.
The officers then used their Tasers on Evans, but the shock did not immediately subdue the 6-foot-4 Dolphin, according to the arrest affidavit.
Note- The Dolphins have released Evans.
