David Boston, former NFL player, gets 6 months in jail

 Associated Press
Published:  Dec. 7, 2012 at 09:08 p.m.


WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- Former NFL wide receiver David Boston has been sentenced to six months in jail and five years of probation for punching a woman last year.

His attorney, Guy Fronstin, confirmed that the 34-year-old Boston was sentenced Friday. He pleaded guilty to aggravated battery last month. Fronstin says his client has turned his life around and been fully committed to treatment since his arrest.

Authorities say Boston had been drinking at a Boca Raton home in November 2011 when he punched a woman twice in the head, leaving a wound requiring 10 stitches.

Boston played at Ohio State and went to the Pro Bowl with the Arizona Cardinals in 2001. He also played for the San Diego Chargers, Miami Dolphins and Tampa Bay Buccaneers before injuries and legal problems ended his NFL career.

Boston's father, Byron, is an American football official in the NFL. He is not permitted to officiate games in which David is playing.
 
 Legal trouble
 
On August 23, 2007, Boston was arrested in Pinellas Park, Florida and charged with DUI after a failed sobriety test was conducted. Boston was released on his own recognizance. A video of Boston's field sobriety test was released through the local Tampa Bay media. The video depicts Boston asking to contact an attorney and being denied, and on several occasions asking to submit to breath and blood tests in lieu of the standard field tests.[6] Boston's breath test resulted in a reading of 0.00 BAC. On September 10, 2007 it was released to the media that David Boston tested positive for GHB,[7] a recreational drug with questionable ties to bodybuilding. After learning of the drug charges the Buccaneers quickly came to an injury settlement with Boston allowing him to be released. On September 12, 2007, Boston was officially released by Tampa Bay when they decided to sign Mark Jones. On December 1, 2011, Boston was accused of beating a woman after a night of drinking Tuesday night in Boca Raton. Boston allegedly punched the woman twice in the head, leaving a gash big enough to require 10 stitches after the incident in the 21000 block of Cromwell Circle, according to a Boca Raton police.

Why does it seem like everyone goes to pinellas to drink and drive?

Naismith was right about Revis. Everyone else is a dummy.

You know how many regular season games he played for Gruden?   ZERO   

I suppose you consider Ryan Leaf to be a Tony Dungy reclamation project as well.

That had to be pointed out by Java?  Geez... just had the dog Gruden need today for some reason? 

Worst part is he would have been a starter but for his issues.  Folks are now seeing the difference a quality receiver makes in an offense with a solid to good qb.  You do have to avoid those with off the field issues as best you can though...

Didn't play = NOT Gruden reclamation project?  I think it just means he wasnt a successful Gruden reclamation project.

\\\\\\\"Java, do you understand this a perfect example of why people beg me to suspend or ban you on a daily basis? Are you actually trying to make a point? Seriously what is the reason for even commenting. In fact why do you even bother coming to the boards? What happened to the intelligent poster from years ago?  A real shame. Like the Bucs yesterday, a wasted effort.\\\\\\\"

So Ryan Leaf wasn't a successful Tony Dungy reclamation project?

What was the reaction to Rutger's giving a "clean slate" to Talib again?
