Droughns arrested

The off-the-field issues continue for Browns players. It doesn't seem to matter who the coach is, who the general manager is, or what esteemed alumnus (Jim Brown) is walking around patting players on the back.
The simple, sad fact is that Browns players just can't seem to stay out of trouble.
Reuben Droughns is the latest Brown to begin traveling down the path worn bare by Kellen Winslow Jr. and William Green.
Droughns was recently acquitted of a drunken-driving charge in Medina. Three days later, he was back in trouble, news reports say.
May 12, he was reportedly involved in a domestic violence incident in Colorado. Details of the alleged incident have not been reported yet.
What is known is that Droughns turned himself in to authorities Wednesday and spent last night in jail. He had a court hearing scheduled for today.
This isn't the way Droughns was supposed to endear himself to Cleveland fans after putting together the first 1,000-yard rushing season by a Browns back in 20 years. He was supposed to make us forget about the misfires of the past.
But Droughns is becoming just another head-shaking punchline in the long list that includes Winslow's motorcycle crash, Green getting stabbed in the back by his girlfriend, and a Pennsylvania officer referring to Gerard Warren as "the nicest guy I've ever arrested."
