Cardinals RB is arrested at airport, cut by team

A newly signed Cardinals running back was arrested Friday at Sky Harbor International Airport after he allegedly stole another flier's laptop.
Larry Lee Ned, 26, joined the team Thursday when he was claimed off waivers from Minnesota.
Ned was arrested with the computer at 1:50 p.m. in a men's bathroom in Terminal 4, said Detective Tony Morales, a spokesman for the Phoenix police department.
Moments earlier, Ned had walked through a security checkpoint. After he went through the detector, he picked up a Dell laptop at the end of the scanner, Morales said.
The laptop's owner was still going through the screening process.
Phoenix police officers stationed at the airport found Ned hiding in a nearby men's restroom, Morales said. Ned was arrested and booked on a theft charge, he said.
On Friday evening, the Cardinals announced that Ned had been released, and that they had re-signed running back Damien Anderson.
