    Welcome to the NFL, kid. A Browns rookie was arrested in a nightclub dispute. Do I see a future Pacman or Bengel? Apologies if this is a D_B.

    Browns rookie arrested in nightclub dispute
    Associated Press

    CLEVELAND — Cleveland Browns rookie receiver Mike Mason was arrested Sunday after refusing demands from two off-duty police officers to leave a downtown nightclub at closing time.

    Mason struggled with one of the officers and was shocked with a stun gun, Lt. Thomas Stacho said Monday. The 22-year-old Mason was charged with aggravated disorderly conduct, obstructing official business and resisting arrest — all misdemeanors.

    The officers confronted Mason while trying to clear patrons from the club about 2:30 a.m. Sunday.

    Mason refused orders to put down his drink and leave, and when the officers tried to take the drink, he "apparently slapped one of the officers' arms away" and the two began struggling, Stacho said.

    He singed with Cleveland as an undrafted free agent in May. Browns spokesman Bill Bonsiewicz said in a statement that the team was aware of Mason's arrest and "takes matters such as these very seriously."

    Not a smart move for an undrafted free agent.

    He must have been confused and thought he was a Bengals rookie.

    But we can't pass judgement because we don't know the full circumstances of what happened! He's just a young guy and young guys make mistakes. Why can't a guy finish his drink in peace before leaving the club??? [/jockapologist]

    In a feature about the new OC, the ABJ wrote about Mason was getting his ass chewed out for fucking up on the field. Now dude done fucked up off it. Hope he can play defensive back too since he's on his way to the Arena League now.

    Not a smart move for anybody.

    He now needs to learn the phrase, 'Do you want fries with that?'

    The all-time best smackdown on a city ever. I was watching that game and just lost it when he said that. My Browns fan friends LOVE when you bring that up. Usually ends with them telling Wyche to do someting to his mother.

    Hey, Wyche, why don't you go f....

    Oops, almost I almost slipped up.

    Nice move, Mason. Looks like Tim Carter will settle in as the No. 3 receiver, look out now AFC North secondaries.
