NFL Player Arrested for Felony Battery on Police Officer

Los Angeles police used a Taser to subdue former USC football standout Everson Griffen after he assaulted a police officer during a traffic stop near the campus. Griffen, who is now a member of the Minnesota Vikings, was booked on felony battery after the incident, which was reported at 30th and Hoover streets, in Los Angeles.

The incident took place during a routine traffic stop. Police asked Griffen for his license, which turned out not to be valid. Griffen then told them "he did not want to go back to jail" and sprinted away from the officers, who caught up with him after a short distance. When one of the officers tried to subdue him, he grabbed the officer in the groin area. Moments later, officers used a Taser to subdue him. Griffen was arrested in 2009 in Massachusetts on suspicion of breach of the peace.
