Pittman Arrested.

Former Arizona Cardinal Michael Pittman was handcuffed and hauled off to jail Saturday after he rammed his Hummer into his wife's Mercedes in their upscale Ahwatukee Foothills community after arguing over their son, police said.

Phoenix police said Pittman, a star player for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the 2003 Super Bowl, was charged with six felony counts.

Phoenix police Lt. Frank Milstead said Pittman rammed the car carrying his wife, Melissa, their son, Mycah, and his baby-sitter, Kristina Hegland, as they tried to leave the gated community of Whistling Rock about 4 p.m. No one was hurt in the crash.

Milstead said the couple argued over whether Pittman could take the 2-year-old son for spring training.

"His wife was adamant that he should not take their son with him. He told her he paid for everything and told her to leave," he said. "She says, 'Hey, let's go back to the house and talk about it,' " Milstead said. "When she starts to move, he rams the car."

Pittman, 27, who is on probation for a domestic violence incident involving his wife, was booked into the Madison Street Jail on three counts of aggravated assault and three of reckless endangerment.

He was arrested twice on domestic violence charges in the summer of 2001 and was released by the Cardinals.

He should stay in jail too for awhile. Is this guy just plain stupid or what? How the hell do you ram your wifes car with her and your son in it? Pissed off or not, what if (god forbid) he seriously injuryed anyone or all of them?

He should be punished in a big way, and I don't mean just his wallet. This is no way for anyone to act, and I hope he pays the price for his actions.

I agree with Dazey here !

On a lighter note, it would be easier to list the players of the NFL NOT being charged with something this off season :-o

I hope it's just a case of an overzealous reporter saying he "rammed" his car when maybe he just pinned them in so they couldn't leave. I find it hard to believe someone would purposefully endanger their own child (even in a rage).

But if it IS true then I hope he goes to jail for it. Sounds like Mike's got a temper so I suppose it's possible.

This is just the reason our league has a felony pool. The first person to have a player convicted of a felony gets a 60$ (5 a person) pot. We had to put convicted in there because it only took about a week for a player to be charged with a felony.

what an ass!! i hope he sits in jail for a couple months anyway, since this isnt a first offense.. lighter note, i noticed they called him a "star" which is crazy and was wondering why he doesnt show this aggression on the football field

Is there some sort of stupidity virus that NFL players pass amongst each other? It's either drugs or domestic violence with this crowd. Unbelievable. :-t

Got to be some kind of stupidity virus. If I got half the money they get, I would not mess it up with stuff like this or drugs. Just don't understand it
