It was a great week for Oakland Raiders kicker Sebastian Janikowski. He tied the NFL record for field goals with a 63-yard bomb Monday night against the Denver Broncos. He joins Jason Elam and Tom Dempsey as the only two kickers in history to achieve this feat (and only the second guy with a full foot to do it).
But, his week got a little worse when he was charged with misdemeanor battery and false imprisonment. See how quickly a week can go in the toilet? That’s why you should make sure you take your vitamins.
Who knows what really happened, but Syrena Nicholson claims that back in 2010 Janikowski “did unlawfully violate (her) personal liberty” and “did willfully and unlawfully use force and violence upon (her) person.” It should be noted that he wasn’t arrested for anything at the time.
We have no clue what really happened. On one hand, you have an athlete with a history of run-ins with the police. On the other, you have a laundry list of people who have tried to make claims against celebrities in attempted money grabs. Who the hell knows?
More importantly, who will replace Janikowski on your fantasy team if he goes to jail for the maximum 18 months? Isn’t that the real question here?
