    Clarett is psychotic.

    MO-CLO BUSTED WITH "ARSENAL OF WEAPONS"
    pft.com

    Former Broncos running back Maurice Clarett is working overtime to justify his recent inclusion in our All-Time All-Turd team.

    Per NBC 4 in Columbus, Mo-Clo was busted at 3:00 a.m. Wednesday after a chase with the cops. He was Tasered and maced during the incident, in which police found an "arsenal of weapons" in his SUV.

    Police spotted the SUV driving erratically on Interstate 70, and began to follow it. The vehicle eventually slammed into a cruiser outside of a restaurant before being stopped.

    Clarett was wearing a bulletproof vest, and was Tasered after failing to cooperate with authorities. Among the weapons found were a loaded assault rifle and handgun. Police also recovered a hatchet and an open bottle of vodka.

    Clarett is schedule to stand trial next Monday on charges of aggravated robbery, which arose from allegations that he mugged a guy for his cell phone on New Year's Day.

    The real question, in our view, is where in the hell was Clarett going and what the hell was he planning to do? We hate to say it, but it sounds to us as if the police might have prevented Mo-Clo from showing up somewhere and firing one or more of those guns.

    [size=18px]Former OSU star Clarett arrested with guns in SUV after chase[/size]

    COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Maurice Clarett was arrested early Wednesday after a highway chase that ended with police using Mace on the former Ohio State running back and finding four loaded guns in his sport utility vehicle.

    Officers used Mace to subdue Clarett after a stun gun was ineffective because the former Fiesta Bowl star was wearing a bullet-resistant vest, Sgt. Michael Woods said.

    "It took several officers to get him handcuffed," Woods said. "Even after he was placed in the paddy wagon, he was still kicking at the doors and being a problem for the officers."

    Police planned to charge him with carrying concealed weapons and other counts, Woods said. He was taken to police headquarters to be interviewed, then was moved to the Franklin County Jail.

    Wearing tan jail-issue clothes, he talked on the telephone in the booking area, separated from reporters by a window. He was to be held at the jail at least until an arraignment Thursday morning, unless his attorneys work out an agreement for his release, police said.

    Clarett made an illegal U-turn on the city's east side and failed to stop when officers, in a cruiser with lights flashing, tried to pull him over, Woods said.

    Police pursued Clarett onto eastbound Interstate 70 when he darted across the median and began heading west. Clarett drove over a spike strip that was placed on the highway, flattening the driver's side tires of the SUV.

    Clarett exited the highway and pulled into a restaurant parking lot, where officers removed him from the SUV after he failed to obey numerous orders to exit the vehicle, Woods said.

    After Clarett was placed in a police van, officers discovered a loaded rifle and three loaded handguns in the front of his vehicle.

    Woods said he did not know where Clarett got the guns or why he had them, and that federal authorities plan to trace their ownership.

    The 22-year-old Clarett is currently awaiting trial on two counts of aggravated robbery, four counts of robbery and one count of carrying a concealed weapon in a separate case. Authorities said he was identified by witnesses as the person who flashed a gun and robbed two people of a cell phone in an alley behind the Opium Lounge in Columbus in the early hours of Jan. 1.

    Messages seeking comment were left Wednesday morning for Clarett's attorneys in that case, Nick Mango and Michael Hoague.

    Clarett scored the winning touchdown in the second overtime of the Fiesta Bowl against Miami to lead Ohio State to the 2002 national championship, the school's first since 1968. But that was the last game the freshman played for Ohio State.

    He sat out the 2003 season after being charged with misdemeanor falsification on a police report, then dropped out of school. He sued to be included in the 2004 NFL draft and lost in court.

    A surprise third-round pick in the 2005 draft, he was cut by the Denver Broncos during the preseason.

    Surely a talent and life wasted. Seriously, I hope the guy gets some professional help.
