Packers fullback Davenport arrested
Player accused of breaking into dorm, defecating in closet
MIAMI, July 8 Green Bay Packers fullback Najeh Davenport was arrested Monday, accused of breaking into a university dormitory and defecating in a womans closet.
DAVENPORT, 23, SURRENDERED TO POLICE Monday and was charged with a second-degree felony count of burglary and a misdemeanor count of criminal mischief, said Richard Master, a Miami Shores police spokesman.
The former University of Miami player was wanted on a warrant issued in April. He was released Monday from a Miami-Dade County jail after posting a $6,500 bond. If convicted, he could be sentenced to up to 15 years in prison. This whole thing is a misunderstanding. Najeh had nothing to do with the situation, said Richard Sharpstein, Davenports attorney. According to police, Davenport crept into a dorm room at Barry University around 6 a.m. on April 1. A woman sleeping in the room, Mary McCarthy, told police she was startled by a strange sound and saw Davenport squatting in her closet. Davenport then allegedly defecated in a laundry basket, McCarthy told detectives. McCarthy told police she didnt know Davenport. Campus security identified the football player from a picture in the University of Miami yearbook.
Sharpstein said he was confident authorities would drop the charges against his client. The Packers released a statement Monday saying team officials have spoken to Davenport about the allegations. It would be inappropriate for us to comment further on this matter, however, until the legal system has run its course, the statement read. The 6-foot-2, 248-pound Davenport was selected by the Packers in the fourth round of the NFL draft.
Was this guy stoned?
Round laundry basket, semi-round toilet.....
Seems like Davenport dropped a few charges himself...
I have definitely seen some weird stuff when people are wasted. This sounds like something more than booze though. This sounds like this was a serious Hallucinogen.
Was that the GRRR, GRRRR, or the SPLAT?
Davenport's 1-foot-4, 3-pound cousin, nicknamed "the Monster," was selected in April 2002 in a special supplemental draft, out of Dormitory Room #218 at Barry University.
"We expect to use both of the Davenports exclusively on special teams, very special teams," said the Packers head coach in an interview yesterday.
