Bradshaw. Jailed.

Postby aaawall91 » Thu Jun 19, 2008 3:17 pm

Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw has been in the Southwest Virginia Regional Jail in Abingdon, Va., since Sunday, serving time for violating terms of his parole according to the office of Stephen Clear, a deputy superintendent for the facility.

Bradshaw, who is from Bluefield, Va., had some run-ins with the law before he was drafted by the Giants last spring. In 2006, while at Marshall University in West Virginia, he was arrested for petty larceny. In 2004 he was arrested in Virginia for underage alcohol possession and resisting arrest.

It isn't a new offense and according to the Giants beat reporters the probation violation happened before the draft. It appears that (this is just speculation) the 30-day sentence was delayed and prearranged. It does add up though since Bradshaw arrived at the jailhouse voluntarily and it was conveniently scheduled during football downtime.

Don't think this has any affect on the Giants RB situation.

Kind of a bazaar situation. It sounds like his arrest(s) in '04 and/or '06 violated his probation from when he was a juvy (notice a trend here yet?), but it seems strange that it took this long for it to play out. I guess that's our legal system for ya.

In any event, it doesn't sound like this should bring any punishment from the NFL or the Giants, assuming it's nothing new.

Tempest in a teapot???

...Bradshaw cleaned up his image and last year he emerged as a playmaker for the Giants during their Super Bowl run. Graham High School football coach and athletic director Doug Marrs said Bradshaw might be a victim of a jealous individual. Marrs, who was Bradshaw's assistant coach at Graham, said he received anonymous hate mail after the school recently retired Bradshaw's number.

"It's just a childhood incident, that is all it was," Marrs said last night of Bradshaw's undisclosed juvenile transgression that resulted in his probation. "He's done nothing (lately). This is so blown out of proportion. It's just a deliberate attempt to hurt a kid that has done well ... to hurt his image. When you live in a small town, there seems to be more jealousy than in other places like a large city. I just know that he is clean since the Marshall incident."

The Giants said in a statement that they were aware of Bradshaw's predicament and that it stems from an offense dating to before he joined the team.

Ahmad Bradshaw completes 30-day prison sentence, NFL investigates

Ahmad Bradshaw is out of jail, but his punishment might not be over.

Bradshaw, the Giants' 22-year-old running back, was released from the Southwest Virginia Regional Jail on Sunday after serving nearly all of a 30-day sentence for an undisclosed probation violation. However, the NFL is still investigating whether the violation was also a breach of the league's personal conduct policy.

If it was, Bradshaw could be fined or even suspended for the start of the 2008 season. The Giants organization could be punished as well.

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said in an e-mail yesterday that the situation was still "under review."

Bradshaw had been in the prison in Abingdon, Va., since June15 when he voluntarily surrendered to authorities. In a statement released last month, his lawyer, Charles Stacy, said the sentence resulted "from an offense that occurred while Mr. Bradshaw was a juvenile." According to the clerk at the Tazewell County Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court, the records of that offense are sealed and confidential.

However, the NFL is more interested in what led to the violation of probation, not the original offense. It is still unclear what Bradshaw did to violate his probation, though in a statement last month the Giants insisted, "This situation is not the result of any recent incident. It stems from an issue that occurred prior to Ahmad being drafted by the Giants." Bradshaw was a seventh-round draft choice in 2007.

I really doubt this is going to be a problem. If you read the bottom of that article, the "violation" might be stealing a video game. I really don't think Bradshaw gets a suspension for this, especially if the violation occured back when he was in college. Maybe a small fine at most. Maybe...
