Because a 5-pound dog bit a 254-pound former NFL linebacker, he was able to get by on misdemeanor charges for killing it.


According to D. Orlando Ledbetter of theAtlanta Journal-Constitution, felony charges against former Falcons linebacker Prince Shembo were dropped after he pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor and paid a $1,000 fine.


“Now that this matter is settled,” agent Adisa Bakari said, “we are excited to see if he can resume his career in the NFL.”


The Falcons cut Shembo, a former fourth-round pick, shortly after he was arrested for killing his ex-girlfriend’s Yorkie named Dior.


Tests on Dior by the Gwinnett County Animal Shelter determined the cause of death to be blunt force trauma. The dog suffered “a fractured rib, fractured liver, abdominal hemorrhage, thoracic hemorrhage, extensive bruising and hemorrhage in the muscles in her front leg and shoulders, head trauma, hemorrhage and edema in lungs, hemorrhage between the esophagus and trachea, and hemorrhage in the left eye with internal injuries.”


But Dior bit Shembo, so that’s apparently OK.


If anyone signs Shembo, he could still be subject to the league’s personal conduct policy and could face a suspension.


Shembo was investigated but never charged for an alleged sexual assault when he played at Notre Dame, and the woman involved in the case committed suicide 10 days later.

I still can't get over the autopsy report. Sounds like something out of a Criminal Minds episode.

Not saying what he did was excusable but we shouldn't condemn people without knowing all the facts.

Actually in this instance, the facts where pretty well publicized right away. The police report pretty much laid out everything you needed to know. I think it's kinda hard to deny the fact that he was in the wrong on this one. Unless he truly feared for his life because of a ten pound dog coming at him. In which case he didn't belong on our team anyway, or in any football related profession for that matter. Lol

Odd headline. I would have titled it "Shembo Pleads Guilty to Cruelty To Animals Charge, Avoids Felony Conviction."

In any event, he's a complete POS and ought to be required to do a ton of community service, etc. And it goes without saying the personal conduct policy should apply here.

He attacked me! It's a horrible excuse to use after taken a life when the person claiming to be attacked has a much higher ability to defend themselves again the attacker due to size or equipment. Why not use lesser means? Oh well its America! If it worked for Officer Wilson then it's good enough for Shembo too.
