Dolphins DE Merling arrested


Recommended Posts

Miami Dolphins defensive end Phillip Merling has been arrested on a charge of aggravated battery against a pregnant woman.

The 6-foot-5, 305-pound Merling was arrested Wednesday in Weston, Fla., and taken to Broward County Jail. A court appearance was scheduled for later Thursday. In Florida, aggravated battery is considered a second-degree felony.

Details on the incident weren't immediately available, according to WSVN in Miami/Ft. Lauderdale.

It was unknown if Merling had a defense attorney, and a call placed to his agent, Jimmy Sexton, wasn't immediately returned.

Merling, 25, was a second-round pick by the Dolphins in 2008 and is entering his third NFL season.

The Dolphins are scheduled to hold a three-day minicamp for veterans starting Friday


Wow this is bad if proven true.

First McDaniel, now Merling this off-season. That D-Line group down in South Florida must be so proud of themselves with their stellar attitude toward the weaker sex.

Classy organization Parcells is overseeing in Miami.

But then with #27 on staff, we have little room to mock, sighs.
