This Right Here is a Shame


Josh Booty Mug Shot
Originally uploaded by TMZ.com
Josh Booty, one of the nicest guys I've met in sports, has had a terrible day. He has been arrested for DUI and got his head cracked open.TMZ.com has this mug shot from Orange County and reports "Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Booty was taken to the Orange County Jail, where he was booked -- and that's when he went ballistic.
O.C. Sheriff's spokesperson Jim Amormino tell TMZ, "Booty was belligerent and uncooperative." Amormino says his deputies used a taser -- "less than lethal force" -- to contain him.
After being tased, Josh fell to the ground, hitting his head on the floor and cracking it open. He was taken to a hospital where he was stitched up."

The Shreveport Times reports that Booty was charged and released. Booty was a two-sport superstar coming out of a Shreveport High School. He earned a then-record $1.6 million dollar signing bonus after being drafted by the Florida Marlins. He has a World Series ring and was once married to a Barker's Beauty from "The Price is Right."
He paid back most of that bonus and played quarterback at LSU, where he earned All-SEC honors. He was drafted by the NFL's Seattle Seahawks and later latched on with the Cleveland Browns for a time.
TMZ.com refers to him as a "Fox Sportscaster." I don't know what's going on there, but this is NOT Josh's finest moment.
