Cowboys FB Anderson arrested
By Dan Graziano
Dallas Cowboys fullback Deon Anderson was arrested early Tuesday morning on traffic warrants after Addison, Texas, police were called to the scene of a disturbance between the player and employees of the BlackFinn restaurant. I didn't think an arrest over traffic warrants was worth mentioning last night, but the police report said two weapons were confiscated and Anderson's car was impounded for further investigation.
No charges have been filed in relation to the weapons at this time, but this investigation bears watching. Anderson told ESPNDallas.com that he exchanged words with a valet attendant and a security guard while attempting to start his car. The traffic warrants were from the city of Irving, so that's where he was booked into the jail at 5:21 a.m. Tuesday.
The Cowboys didn't have any response, but they acknowledged being aware of the arrest. We'll keep you updated on any developments in the investigation. To my knowledge, the 27-year-old Anderson hasn't had any scrapes with the law during his time with the Cowboys. He got in a fight with teammate Flozell Adams on the flight back from Philly last season, according to witnesses, but he laughed it off and said it wasn't a big deal.
