Todd Marinovich, who threw for 243 yards, 3 TDs, and no picks in his first start and not much else besides, was arrested Sunday for skateboarding at the Newport Pier boardwalk in the O.C. with an ounce of meth and paraphernalia.
NFL players are getting into trouble in new and exotic ways: financing a dog fighting ring, leaving a $350,000 Lamborghini wrapped around a light pole, making it rain, and, my favorite, getting busy in a stairwell. No wonder Marinovich couldn't make it in the NFL; skateboarding on the boardwalk on meth? That shit might fly in the Arena League but that is way too tame for the NFL. Maybe if it was a hover skateboard or if he was naked or something.
