You want your non African-American arrests? Here's a sampling:
Hernandez is a Puerto Rican and just a few years ago, the Packers had a caucasian tight end (I forget his name) who got in trouble for statutory rape. Lance Allworth was arrested as a sex offender. Brian Bozworth had some violent anger problems and was arrested at one time. Our own right guard, Alex Boone, was arrested for public drunkeness and violent behavior. Just a few years ago Rothlesberger was arrested for rape. Julian Edelman, assault and battery outside a Boston nightclub. Our own Jeff Garcia was arrested for drunken driving. Todd Marinovich was arrested multiple times on drug charges. Rey Maualuga (there's your Somoan) was arrested on a DUI. Pat McAfee was arrested for public intoxication and disturbing the peace. Igor Olshansky was arrested for illegal drug possession. Chris Simms was a DUI arrest. Mike Vrabel was arrested for theft at an Indiana casino.
Since 2000, there have been about 640 arrests. The Vikings have the most with 40. The Rams have the least with 8. The Niners are near the bottom of the list with 12. The Seahawks are about in the middle with 20 arrests.
