Colclough out of jail

After spending nearly five hours in a Mecklenburg County jail today, Panthers backup cornerback Ricardo Colclough has been released, and could soon be getting his release from the team.

Colclough was charged with driving while impaired and was checked into the jail at 8:40 a.m. and then released at 1:33 p.m., according to police records.

His first court appearance is scheduled for Tuesday.

What an absolute idiot. I hope they cut him! First, no pro athlete should be getting drunk during the season, they shoud honor thier bodies that they need for their profession. Secondly, you're making several hundred thousand to millions, hire a freaking taxi!!!! even if you've had two drinks. stupid stupid stupid

Hey I got arrested for a DWI and I got to keep my job, plus I'll probably get to start the first 2 games of the year because my teammate beat the crap out of one the guys on the defense...these are the days of our lives!

You all are silly, if you are going to get arrested or suspended at least have a gun on you when it happens!

Posted by: Jeremy Bridges | Aug 30, 2008 3:23:19 PM

Yeah well, at least when you do something stupid in Charlotte there are other teams out there who are stupid enough to pick us after we get released!

HOORAY! Any excuse to get rid of Colclough is a good one. He's a bad corner and an average returner at best.

Since my wife kicked me to the curb or vice versa ;^p after I got cut - I could use some of that action!

Ya'll wanna meetup at Denny's?

All you hypocritical bastards need to lay off the guy for getting a DWI. I think it's funny when two face hypocrites cast the first stone. Half you people were probably getting shit faced at the bar last night and drove home. A DWI can be overratted. What if Colclough went to dinner, had two or three drinks, and was pulled over on his way home. This would not make him a partying drunk but it could have made him blow over the limit, so before we come down too hard on the guy, lets find out what the circumstances were behind the arrest.

Im like dude, ya'll remember the good ole days, totally right? How come the Panthers think drinking and driving is bad - weird dude!

Posted by: Todd Sauerbrun | Aug 30, 2008 3:34:49 PM

Posted by: Rae Carruth | Aug 30, 2008 3:37:38 PM

I tried running away from my DWI, but they got carz!

Posted by: Michael Bates | Aug 30, 2008 3:38:47 PM

yeah once you get addicted to alcohol, even cancer cant stop you from tipping the bottle!

Posted by: Mark Fields | Aug 30, 2008 3:42:17 PM

Jerry, give me a call Im seeing a trend here.

Posted by: Roger Goodell | Aug 30, 2008 3:43:55 PM

Come on Roger, stop worrying the kids are just enjoying themselves with a little alcohol...at least they aint doping again...although that O line is loooking pretty good again.

Posted by: Dr. James Shortt | Aug 30, 2008 3:50:06 PM

He was defending me too close, and he said something about my mom. So i stuck him in his face? no biggy, neither is driving drunk.

Posted by: Steve Smith | Aug 30, 2008 3:50:15 PM

Jerry, perhaps you should talk to John and tell him that he needs to put his players on a short leash. Jarret last year, this year Roberto, and Steve Smith punching out a teammate. I mean come on, They are professionals, not school room bullies or alcoholics. Tell John if he cant tell his players do keep their mind on football and leave the other crap alone, then go find another job.
