Buccaneers backup safety Cody Grimm was arrested over the weekend in Virginia for public intoxication according to the Washington Post. The article also revealed this was Grimm's second arrest this year.
Buccaneers reserve safety Cody Grimm most likely was already facing an uphill battle to make the 53-man roster again this year, and the battle may have even gotten tougher.
According to a report in the Washington Post, Grimm was arrested for public intoxication on Sunday in Virginia. Grimm was reportedly in town for a wedding the story said, and the arrest happened at a Hampton Inn at 5:30 a.m. The Post said that court records show that Grimm has a hearing scheduled for July 9.
In the article head coach Greg Schiano said he was “disappointed” then had this to say regarding Grimm’s arrest in a statement.
“Our players know our expectations on and off the field and we take these matters very seriously,” Schiano said. “When we feel we have obtained all the necessary information, we will act accordingly.”
The charge is a misdemeanor but according to the Washington Post, this was Grimm’s second such arrest, as Grimm was charged with the same offense back on March 10 in Christiansburg, Va. That case was given a “deferred disposition,” which allows prosecutors to drop a charge if assuming the accused fulfills certain promises and stays out of trouble.
