Four NFL players arrested on Saturday

Four NFL players were arrested in a span of less than 24 hours from early Saturday morning to Saturday evening.

First arrest: The first player arrested was Washington wide receiver Cody Latimer, in an incident that started with a shots fired call shortly after midnight. Latimer was booked on charges of assault in the second degree, menacing, illegal discharge of a firearm, prohibited use of a weapon and reckless endangerment.

Second and Third arrest: During the day on Saturday two NFL players, Seahawks cornerback Quinton Dunbar and Giants cornerback Deandre Baker both turned themselves in. Arrest warrants were issued for the two players on Thursday, after Baker was accused of using a semi-automatic firearm on Wednesday to rob multiple people, with Dunbar’s help, of more than $11,000 in cash plus watches and other valuables worth more than $60,000. Both are facing multiple felonies and decades in prison after allegedly robbing a number of unknown individuals at gunpoint earlier this week in Florida.

Fourth arrest: On Saturday evening, Bills defensive lineman Ed Oliver was arrested on charges of DWI and unlawful possession of a weapon.

Dallas Cowboys corner Jourdan Lewis posted on social media earlier on Saturday: “WE IN QUARANTINE HOW Y’ALL GETTING INTO THIS MUCH TROUBLE?”

Roger Goodell’s office declined to comment on the arrests.

Los Angeles County’s stay-at-home orders will “with all certainty” be extended for the next three months, county Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer acknowledged during a Board of Supervisors meeting on Tuesday.

Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer said: “Our hope is that by using the data, we’d be able to slowly lift restrictions over the next three months,” she said. But without widely available therapeutic testing for the coronavirus or rapid at-home tests that would allow people to test themselves daily, it seems unlikely that restrictions would be completely eased.
