Tyler Sash only made 25 total tackles in two seasons with the New York Giants in 2011 and 2012, so it’s hard to say he had a particularly remarkable NFL career (he does, however, have a Super Bowl ring). But hoo boy, does he has a remarkable arrest on his record now. From an incident in Iowa over the weekend:

Oskaloosa police said the incident started about 1:27 a.m.

Sash, 25, took off on a scooter and was followed by police. At one point, Sash ditched the scooter and ran away on foot.

He was found hiding behind a tree in a backyard before running away again. He refused repeated orders to stop, police said.

At 1:56 a.m., Sash was shot with a Taser by officers and taken into custody after resisting getting handcuffs on.

Police said he had a strong smell of alcohol, watery and bloodshot eyes. He refused a field sobriety test, but admitted to having six drinks in one hour, police said.

Sash was charged with public intoxication and interference with official acts.

There’s a lot to like here, but, to me, the hiding behind the tree part really makes it. He must have picked up hide-and-seek tips from Eli on the sidelines.
