Chargers WR Legedu Naanee Arrested in Indianapolis

I don't know how this one slipped by everybody, but apparently Legedu Naanee was arrested on Saturday in Indianapolis and charged with resisting arrest. Around these parts Legs is known as a cool guy with a good head on his shoulders, so you'll be shocked until you read what happened and realize that he was cuffed for being a drunk dude:

from Deadspin:

According to the police report, Naanee had walked into a homicide crime scene being managed by two officers with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department. An officer stopped Naanee and asked him to leave. The police say Naanaee resisted and asked, "Why are you being an asshole?" Naanee — who had "a strong order of an alcoholic beverage, on or about his breath and person" — was soon placed under arrest. As an officer attempted to clap handcuffs on him, Naanee "began to actively pull away"

That where things get ugly. The shortened story is the arresting officer ended up blasting Naanee in the face with pepper-spray to get him on the ground, then proceeded to knee him in the side twice in an effort to get the cuffs on Legedu. Legedu, while thing was going on, was pulling away or keeping his hands underneath his body. Then...

Handcuffed, Naanee was taken to the medics on the scene and informed that he was under arrest for public intoxication and resisting arrest. Naanee then said to the officer, "Do you know who I am?" and added, "I am an NFL player and I am going to sue your ass." A man whom the cop believed to be Naanee's agent approached the car and told him he "was going to ruin [Naanee's] career."

Legedu is a free agent this offseason.
