    Thu, 18 May 2006 12:45:46 -0700

    The Associated Press reports Chicago Bears CB Ricky Manning Jr. and two former UCLA football players, including Jacksonville Jaguars rookie RB Maurice Drew, were charged with assault Thursday, May 18, for their alleged participation in an early morning fight at a restaurant in April. Manning was charged with one count of assault by means likely to produce great bodily injury, according to Deputy District Attorney Karen Murcia. If convicted, Manning faces up to four years in state prison.

    DREW'S ARREST KEPT UNDER WRAPS PRE-DRAFT
    Mike Florio

    Kudos to everyone involved in keeping under wraps the arrest of UCLA running back Maurice Drew only six days before the April 29 draft.

    Including, apparently, the relevant law enforcement authorities.

    As it turns out, Drew was busted with Bears corner Ricky Manning, Jr. on April 23 after a man allegedly had the crap beat and/or kicked out of him at a Denny's restaurant in Westwood, the site of the UCLA campus. Previous reports indicated that the incident was sparked after a group of men started to make fun of the alleged victim for working on a laptop.

    We're also assuming that the media was in some way complicit in keeping Drew's pre-draft arrest under wraps, given that the AP story announcing the fact that Drew has been charged with assault grossly glosses over the fact that Drew was originally arrested at the same time that Manning got busted.

    Word of Drew's potential involvement was churning through the NFL rumor mill in the days preceding the draft, but the prevailing school of thought was that Drew had nothing to do with the incident.

    The end result? Drew was drafted in round two, by the Jaguars. He most likely would have gone later if the arrest had been disclosed.

    The winners? Drew, obviously. But another guy who'll make out is the alleged victim, since he'll now likely be able to get even more money from Drew through the civil justice system for injuries sustained as a result of the incident.

    Just more pampered overpaid athletes that think they can get away with anything. Sad thing is, they probably will get off of the charges rather easily.

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!

    Looks like the panthers really did know what they were doing when they didnt match the bears offer sheet as Manning was a restricted free agent. Good on them!
