According to The Washington Post, Tampa Bay Buccaneers safety Cody Grimm was arrested for public intoxication in Leesburg, Virginia this past weekend.
We’re told that the 26-year-old Fairfax native, once a gridiron standout at Oakton High, was back in the area for a wedding. Town police said the arrest happened at a Hampton Inn at 5:30 a.m. Court records show that Grimm has a hearing scheduled for July 9.
The charge is a misdemeanor — but for Grimm, the matter could be complicated by a previous public intoxication arrest, on March 10 in Christiansburg, Va. That case, records show, was given a “deferred disposition,” which allows prosecutors to drop a charge if assuming the accused fulfills certain promises and stays out of trouble.
Grimm’s roster spot for the upcoming season is already hanging by a thread, this arrest certainly won’t help him.
