ANDERSON, Ind. ó The family of former NFL player Corwin Brown said they believe he may suffer from the same type of brain trauma as Dave Duerson, the former Chicago Bears star who committed suicide in February.
Brown was taken from his home Friday night with a self-inflicted gunshot wound after a nearly seven-hour standoff with police in Granger, Ind. St. Joseph County authorities said Brown is in a secured facility receiving medical treatment and he was charged Tuesday with three felony counts for allegedly holding his wife hostage with a handgun and bruising her during the standoff. Bond was set at $50,000.
A statement released by Brown’s family apologized for the disturbance and thanked the authorities for saving his life. It also painted a sobering picture of Brown, saying he had become suspicious, distant, gloomy, exhausted and depressed after playing eight seasons in the NFL.
OREGON
PORTLAND, Ore. ó Video taken by a police dashboard camera shows Oregon quarterback Darron Thomas was a passenger in the car when cornerback Cliff Harris was cited for driving 118 mph in June.
Also in the video, obtained by KATU television in Portland, officer Ray Stallsworth asks Harris if there is marijuana in the car, and someone is heard responding what sounds like, “we smoked it all,” which the officer repeats.
But Harris denies there are any drugs in the car and later indicates it was another passenger ó not Thomas ó who was smoking the marijuana.
Harris passed a field sobriety test and ultimately was cited for driving with a suspended license in a car rented by a university employee.
