Eagles’ Jason Peters, Packers’ Johnny Jolly arrested

Philadelphia Eagles left tackle Jason Peters was arrested Sunday night in Shreveport, La., for violating the city’s loud-music ordinance and resisting arrest. Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Aqib Talib is a person of interest in an incident that involved guns and shots fired in Garland, Texas. In Houston, Green Bay Packers defensive lineman Johnny Jolly was arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute.

At least, Dez Bryant is now allowed back inside malls. Roger Goodell is going to be one busy man if he intends to enforce the NFL’s personal conduct policy when this player lockout ends.

Peters, visiting Shreveport for a show by rapper Rick Ross, is free on $628 bond; he allegedly refused to turn down the music in his car and to show I.D. to police.

As for Talib, an investigation into a family dispute is ongoing. According to a Garland police report, he allegedly attempted to pistol-whip his sister's boyfriend and, after dropping his gun in a struggle, used his mother's pistol to fire several shots at the boyfriend as he ran away.

On Friday night, Jolly was pulled over by police, who found a bottle containing 600 grams of codeine under the passenger's seat and a bottle with an unidentified substance in the driver's side door.
