Texas A&M projected star receiver Ricky Seals-Jones was arrested for disorderly conduct early Sunday morning, according to KBTX.com. According to police, Seals-Jones was being ‘carried away by his friends’ when someone bumped into him. Seals-Jones exchanged words with the man, broke away from his friends and yelled, “F**** you! You want some?”
After Seals-Jones motioned to the other person like he wanted to fight, he was taken into custody on a misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct, and per department policy, he will be indefinitely suspended from the team.
Seals-Jones’ arrest is the latest in a puzzling offseason of off-field misconduct. The first casualty was safety Kameron Miles’ dismissal over a reported theft incident. Defensive lineman Isaiah Golden was arrested for pot and has since withdrawn from the school, although he is expected back by fall. Linebacker Darian Claiborne, who was arrested last December on a marijuana charge, was also arrested alongside Golden for a noise violation. The latest arrest came from the aforementioned Hill, who was passed out in a planter box.
Seals-Jones redshirted the 2013 season after injuring his knee in the season opener against Rice. The charge against Seals-Jones seems rather weak.
Update: Seals-Jones will fight the disorderly conduct charges, via TexAgs. RSJ said he had nothing to drink, and he went to pick up a friend. The other person cursed at him and called him the ‘N’ word. Words were exchanged and Ricky was arrested…not the other person. An independent witness claims he can confirm the facts.
