Bucs assistant arrested in Indy
Published February 28, 2005
INDIANAPOLIS - Bucs assistant coach Kyle Shanahan was arrested by Indianapolis police early Sunday morning.
Shanahan, 23, was transported to the Arrestee Processing Center. His release was ordered after he appeared in court Sunday and was charged with misdemeanor intoxication.
Shanahan was being "loud, belligerent and causing a scene" after being escorted from the Have a Nice Day Cafe at 2:07 a.m. Sunday, according to a report filed by Indianapolis Police Officer Eric B. Simmons .
"I could smell a strong odor of alcoholic beverage on his person, his eyes were glassy and bloodshot and he was unsteady on level ground."
Simmons said he told Shanahan several times to quiet down but he persisted and was arrested.
Shanahan, the son of Broncos coach Mike Shanahan , is in his second season as the Bucs' offensive quality control coach and is attending the NFL scouting combine.
According to police report, Shanahan was escorted out of the bar with assistant defensive backs coach Raheem Morris .
Shanahan could not be reached for comment. Coach Jon Gruden said the team was investigating the incident.
WILLIAMS RUNS: Former Southern Cal receiver Mike Williams , who had not planned to work out at the combine, changed his mind and was clocked at 4.59 and 4.61 seconds in his two attempts at 40 yards.
That performance was significantly worse than Williams predicted on Friday, when he said he was going to "bet the farm," that he would run under 4.5 during his personal workout March 10 at USF.
Williams' times weren't as bad as the ones turned in Saturday by former Ohio State running back Maurice Clarett , who was timed at 4.72 and 4.82. But it was disappointing to the former Plant High star.
"No excuses," he said. "I felt good and should have done better. I've just got to work harder, shave off some time and impress people with my next shot."
HOG HEAVEN: Matt Jones , the Arkansas quarterback who is projected as a receiver or tight end, might have been the most impressive player Sunday. The 6-foot-6, 242-pound Jones ran the fastest time ever by a quarterback at the combine, unofficially clocked at 4.41 seconds in the 40-yard dash.
Jerome Mathis turned in the fastest time this year at the combine with an unofficial 4.32. But longtime combine veterans Bill Parcells and Gil Brandt said he was officially clocked at 4.25 - faster than Deion Sanders .
Mathis played at Hampton in Virginia.
INJURY REPORT: Falcons general manager Rich McKay , the co-chairman of the NFL's competition committee, admits injuries were up last season. The league already has received a report from Jets team physician Elliot Pellman on the number of injuries in 2004.
"There's no question they were up," McKay said. "This is not the first year they were up in relation to the last season. If this is a trend, we're going to take a look at it. We'll look at every tape of a play that leads to injury and see if there is a common denominator.
"It's always concerning when injuries go up, but we don't want to make too much of it yet. There was a noticeable increase ... and in lower extremity-type injuries."
McKay also said the competition committee was investigating low blocks, particularly downfield and not necessarily in the tackle-box area.
