First off, it is never good when one of your players is on Deadspin or TMZ. San Diego Chargers WR Legedu Naanee found himself on Deadspin on this lovely Valentines day, apparently he was arrested for public intoxication and resisting arrest in Indianapolis.
According to the police report, Naanee had walked into a homicide crime scene being managed by two officers with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department. An officer stopped Naanee and asked him to leave. The police say Naanaee resisted and asked, “Why are you being an a**hole?” Naanee — who had “a strong order of an alcoholic beverage, on or about his breath and person” — was soon placed under arrest. As an officer attempted to clap handcuffs on him, Naanee “began to actively pull away”:
After several attempts to gain control of him, I delivered one 2 second burst of Pepper spray to his face. After being sprayed Mr. Naanee continued to resist by actively pulling away and tucking his hands, so we could not get control of him. Mr. Naanee was then placed on the ground and continued to resist arrest by pulling his hands under his body. I continuously told Mr. Naanee to stop resisting and delivered two knee strikes to his right side.
Handcuffed, Naanee was taken to the medics on the scene and informed that he was under arrest for public intoxication and resisting arrest. Naanee then said to the officer, “Do you know who I am?” and added, “I am an NFL player and I am going to sue your a**.” A man whom the cop believed to be Naanee’s agent approached the car and told him he “was going to ruin [Naanee's] career.” – Deadspin
Legs just was in the news a few months ago for some shenanigans he was caught up in at Bar West in PB. He was let off on those charges and will look to find a way off of these charges as well.
So Legedu Naanee asks, “Do you know who I am?” That is kind of funny since the rest of San Diego is trying to remember who he was. He keeps finding himself in trouble with the law and on the injury reports. Does anyone outside of San Diego even know who he is?
