Former barely NFL quarterback Josh Booty settled a lawsuit against the Orange County sheriff’s department alleging sheriff’s deputies shot him with a stun gun while booking him for drunken driving.
Booty’s attorney, Tariq Hasan, claims the former awful quarterback will receive $8,619.
In 2008 Booty, who was drafted by the Seattle Seahawks in 2001, was pulled over for a traffic violation. While in custody, sheriff’s deputies said they subdued him with a stun gun when he became belligerent. Apparently Booty disagreed with their assessment of his behavior.
Booty later pleaded guilty to driving under the influence and was sentenced to three years probation. Prosecutors claim the 35-year-old is currently wanted on an arrest warrant because he failed to enroll in an alcohol program.
So they settled the lawsuit with a guy who is currently wanted on an arrest warrant? How does that work?
Oh, oh I get it. They’re going to make Booty show up to collect his check then slap the cuffs on him! Oh, you guys are good.
Booty, who also played baseball for five years in the Florida Marlins’ organization really played this badly.
So a member of the Booty family got paid because he was acting so erratically he got hit with a stun gun. Where was the Orange County Sheriff’s Department during the 2007 USC-Stanford game?
What? When Josh Booty is erratic he gets zapped, but when John David Booty is erratic he gets to embarrass an entire university? Yeah that’s fair.
