Mario Urrutia-WR- Buccaneers   May. 17 - 11:28 pm et
   
      
Bucs WR Mario Urrutia was reportedly arrested Sunday for a drivers license violation.
Urrutia was detained by Hillsborough County police for a "violation of non-resident drivers license" -- a misdemeanor in Florida. The charge is minor, but the bad publicity generated by any arrest is bad news for a fringe player.

Yeah in most cases if one just shows the judge a valid FL licence and then the case will be dropped with a minor fine, just like not having proof of insurance.

Something missing out of this story, they could have issued him a summons or a ticket.  Getting arrested seems harsh.

I was very nearly arrested for this in the 90s in Clearwater. Some old lady ran into my car in a parking lot. A cop came to file a report, asked for my license and asked if I lived in Florida now.  I said yes and he said, "You know, I could take you to jail right now for not getting this changed."  But he said it like a jerk.  I think if I had showed even the slightest bit of attitude, he would have taken me in, but I just yes sirred and no sirred and he told me to get it done the next day.  My point is that this is no big deal and largely depends on how big of a d-bag the cop is.

He's gone, but it will have jack squat to do with this minor incident.

I honestly don't fully understand this... When it comes to a fringe NFL player... I guess it's just a nuisance for them to have to go and get a new drivers license in every state they try out for a team, not knowing whether or not they're going to be there full time. Especially if their main residence is not in Florida.

And where does this end? If a player has a residence in Florida and a residence in Georgia... Do they have to carry 2 sets of tags and 2 sets of drivers licenses?

During the offseason they're living in one state, during the season they're living in the other... And to make matters worse, if I'm not mistaken, some states have laws against carrying 2 IDs with you even if they are from different states.

DWB? there's no indication of what he was actually pulled over for initially.

He was pulled over for being 6' 6" and black driving a nice car. So after su**CENSORED**ion of drugs they haul him in with only the drivers license as a reason. they hold him, check him out and then release him on bond.

Even if you are just a part-time resident, if you work in Florida, you are required to have a Florida driver's license or state ID.

If you were a young Black male driving a nice car you would know there is nothing unusual about being pulled over for no apparent offense and being treated guilty until you prove yourself innocent.  I am sure many will say I am playing some mythological race card but the truth is most people would not have been stopped and arrested for this offense and had Mario been the punter driving a Ford Explorer he would not have even been stopped.

Eggzactly.

Unless Urrutia lights it up, and I mean REALLY lights it up, he is PS material, or dead meat (cut).
