Minor stuff, but it's also part of an undeniable trend with him.
Gotta love the off season.
While not good that he has had ANOTHER run in with the police, I fail to see exactly what he did wrong here.
Was drunk in public, which OK that is a no no.
Told an officer no, which isn't a crime
Stood up in an aggressive manor, which isn't wise but also isn't a crime
Yet another stupid move from a guy that clearly does not learn from past mistakes and appreciate 2nd chances. Does he get suspended for multiple games, the season or kicked off the team?
Guy seems to have an ongoing issue. Wonder what the consequence will be. Is this something that might put him before the student disciplinary board?
Yeah, go get tanked and cause a problem with bouncers at a bar, then get in the face of a police officer and see what happens to you.
If Frazier was suspended for a half for a DUI, I think Samson will get suspended for the spring game.
Frazier had been well behaved before though.
Yeah but Samson also only "stood up aggressively." It's just a ticket, nothing else.
I didnt say it was smart, just that it isnt illegal
Tupou's charges were completely dismissed... These players don't have to be convicted of anything to have serious repercussions dropped on them.
Good grief...so does this fall under the jurisdiction of the Student kangaroo court?
No jail can hold this man. Ask the Kappa Sigs.
I guarantee you the police can and will find something to charge him with. Drunk & Disorderly seems like it could easily fit the bill here.
Public intoxication is applicable. Telling an officer "no" is not a crime. Standing up is not a crime.
Tupou beat the **** out of three kids and tore down a fence at a frat. The kid, while a complete douchebag, had to have surgery on his face.
Samson was drunk in public. While dumb, he didn't do anything crazy like beating the **** out of someone, tackling a cop, or falling asleep as the wheel at a stop sign.
This is why I like opening the season with our easiest game. I'd much rather have him suspended for Idaho St than CSU.
Son of a bitch.
Come on, man. You can tell from the article that it was more than a simple, "no". And not cooperating with the police, when you are clearly intoxicated, and doing so in a supposed aggressive manner, is going to land you a night in jail every time.
The point is, the student court has ending authority over his fate on the football team, and they seem to give zero ****s.
Again. I never said what he did wasn't wrong, just that it isn't illegal.
This is Samson's 3rd or 4th incident. That is the issue here. Not what he did.
Suspended for the spring game? We'll lose for sure now....
I think we put a ton of fault on the student court for Tupou's situation when it was pretty clear he did a lot wrong. They probably did the right thing considering what he did.
The student court should not have any authority over an off campus, out of school issue. That should be a law enforcement deal and there were no charges filed. That should have been the end of it.
That's fine if you think that but when there is an altercation at a frat house between current students, the student court is going to get involved. They have always been involved on off campus MIP's, DUI's, fights. etc.
I understand that they stick their noses in places they don't belong. Had a run in with them during my undergrad. The "honor council" is a farce. A kangaroo court. The fact a group of students is given the authority to annihilate a colleagues academic career in a court system where it is the defendants job to prove innocence is ridiculous.
Mmmmm... Yeah.... I feel you from a fan's stand point, but not from a logical, unbiased one.
Why should a person be punished academically for something that had no relation to academics?
