Merling arrested for aggravated battery

Defensive end Phillip Merling is in the Broward County main jail this morning after being arrested Wednesday for aggravated battery on woman, according to the Broward Sheriff's office.

Details of the incident that led to the arrest are still forthcoming but this one is not good: The woman Merling allegedly hit is pregnant.

And the initial report says Merling knew or should have known that.

Merling is the fourth Dolphins player arrested since the end of the 2009 regular season. Will Allen (DUI), Ronnie Brown (DUI) and Tony McDaniel (domestic battery) were also arrested this offseason.

The Dolphins are still gathering information and have no comment at the moment.

This is never good news. But the news is worse when the player combines off-field problems with those on-the-field.

And Merling, it could be argued, has had problems on the field. After being drafted 32nd overall in the 2008 draft -- the 32nd pick is typically a first-round selection but was the first pick of the second round in '08 when New England lost its pick -- Merling has been inconsistent at best.

His practice habits have been internally criticized by coaches. Merling admitted as much to me last year. His performance in games has been better, but still not good enough to earn him a starting job.

Merling was working with the first-team defense in Miami's most recent OTA session open to the media. The Dolphins begin a three-day minicamp on Friday.

Aloco,

Too busy too post now!

Relocating my canned goods too a safer place.

PS: Anybody know how to make a tin foil hat stick to a pitbulls head?

Guys how are we going to ensure when we reach the shelters that Jet fans aren't there with us? I'd rather be outside with crab people than inside with even one single Jet fan!!!!

Odinseye,

Do you think your dog could handle his self against a crab person? And I don't think you really have canned goods, unless it's dog food?

Well well cuban menace up to his old tricks. What a buffoon/imbecile you are. Always this jealousy/envy thing going on. You are on top, you happy you pile of garbage. Thanks for stopping by.

Ti Kanis to my fellow fans out there

Aint it funny how all you idiots b!tch at Homer for posting non football stuff like ARP rays, yet you fools babble on about crab people. You f'kin hypocrites.

Stanley,

We've long given up on Home posting conspiracy stuff, and if he will post about it, we will make fun of it. Dismiss crab people if you want, all I can say is we warned you!!!!

You guys are no better than Home, count all the crab people posts. You guys are f'kin sick like him

Odinseye,

Do you think your dog could handle his self against a crab person?

Well, DeBo took out a coyote a few weeks back, but if he keeps removing his new "helmut" he don't stand a chance. Dumb Dog!

PS: Don't worry about those jet fans, I'm using them for bait in my crab traps.

The truth is out there..........

Who are these people with Crabs??
.
.

Cuban you still are a fvkin social parasite. Up to the old same bag of tricks. Go back to your 1 bedroom apt and stay there.

Envy cuban krap is you only motivation.

cuban let me ask, Have you ever even played a sport? Yeah right LMFAO

I have only been to these blogs in the last 3 weeks. Who the f is NJ fin fan?????

Who are these people with Crabs??


Homes claims they're "friends" of his. Don't tell his I said this, but I think they're his relatives.

PS: Phillip Merling U Da MAN!

Way to whip some pregnant chick A Z Z!

notice how avantos say he been new here for 3 weeks. Funny this is when NJ stopped posting here. cuban he think you dumb.

Cuban:

I'll bet that if someone posted that guy's
'Real' Name and Street Address....Most of our problems would disappear into thin air.


Just a thought.

Even if he was new the last three weeks, he would know who NJ is. People mention him everyday.

His question gave away the answer.

david, avantos is NJ he want you to think it is someone else. he always jealous of cuban m

odinseye why you think NJ play this game?

Pending Book release:


"The Northeaster Almanac of
** NJ PHIN FAN Online" **


Copies available in Barnes & Noble soon!

Ok Guys, Lets all settle down and just welcome Back NJ, Can we do that, And yes Steve, If I had the guys address his Problems would all be solved.... Guaranteed......

You all a f'kin idots with talk of crabs and you all have a man love crush of NJ

OOOOOOOHH cuban I am sooooo scared if you had my address, if I am who you say I am then you would know where I work, not hard to figure out for a buffoon like you.

Nah...I doubt 'Phin Fan' would waste his time like that.

Besides I think that he and a few of them (maybe Cuban) are going to Dolphins / Jets
@ the new Meadowlands.

That's true David, good investigating, your right NJ has more important things to do, I was ragging on home earlier, Iam sure its him, though I will say he's got NJ down to a Tee....Maybe he can go to Vegas and Open for Rich Little.... Just a thought.

sick of these fools being arrested. parcells do something about this

Don't think This is fully ture. I mean what kind of man hits a women that has a child. I think more like she fall because he push her off him or something of that sort and she was mad. I seen to many times that a man gets arrested for silly things that a women overract about.

about him losing his job....Have not seen our pick do anything yet so he has to prove he can play before i give him anything.

Mr.Dhaiti, Let me guess, Your from the Middle east, Right??????

You guys and menace are truly sick. menace you know NJ despises you, he insults you and others and he gets a free pass. You blame homer.

if he hit a pregnant woman dude should be suspended

Stanley, Not sure who you are, but me And NJ and Bobby12 will be attending the phin/jet game in December, Not only that but Hot Ashley goes to his Gym 2 times a week, Does this sound like we're enemies??

Aggravated assault is much worse than simple assault.

If the 6-4 305 pounder can prove it was neccessary to defend himself in this manner, FINE.

If he can't, Too Bad.
Simple assault is a misdemeanor (0-90 days), Aggravated Assault is a FELONY!

Due to his size and her pregnancy, I think it might be difficult too convince a Judge or Jury that he needed to put the smack down on her.

On the bright side, he may be able to plea it down to a "High Court Misdemeanor(0-365 days).

PS: Though I'm not an attorney, I do know the law inside and out. Most of which I learned from the INSIDE :)

Cuban: ( @ 8:03 PM)


Let me make sure that everyone understands what I meant...

It would be a good test of someone's
'courage & character'
if they had to post AS THEMSELVES most of the time.

There are people who get too used to hiding behind their screen.
I think that if one or two of these Multi-character nut-jobs were exposed, then all of the sudden the Insults being lobbed at strangers would disappear.

It would be nice to see people, up here, act more civil toward each other.
.
.

start cutting these fools

David,

That's a fact.

I grew up in Chicago and Detroit. MOST people in the streets repected others and minded their own business.
You know why?
Because we were all armed and we were all crazy!

Is this a good analogy for the point you're trying too make?

...and *** stanley323 (definitely).. = HOME

odin, YOUR POSTS ARE GREAT NOT LIKE THE OTHERS WHICH AMOUNT TO NO THING .

LET SEE, DAVID DUCHOVNY ; DID YOU GO TO SCHOOL ? IF YES ,WHERE ?

I'm trying....I tell kids....

'You never know who your talking to'
.
.

See... I can't spell

-" You're "

odinseye: (@ 8:42 PM)

It is.

....and last time I checked, the law says that we can use our guns to defend ourselves.


Of course...

If everyone just acted 'reasonable' then we would rarely ever have to.

THIS OIL SPILL WILL DESTROY THE BEAUTIFUL LOUSIANA .

Aloco,

You're absolutely right.

That's one thing I'll give HOME credit for HAARPing on.

The BP oil disaster is an ecological nightmare. It's simply inexcusable when it could have easily been prevented.

The inspectors were receiving kickbacks. I hope they're enjoying the perks.

At the risk of sounding like a wussbag, this whole catastrophy hurts me deep down inside.

ODIN , THE PICTURES IN TV ARE DISTURBING TO SAY THE LEAST, MARSHES AND THE OIL STARTING TO SHOW UP AT BEACHES , I WONDER WHEN IT'S GOING TO VISIT THE KEYS ?

It will be easy to replace Merling on the bench.
