In the news...
How close is the NFL to hiring babysitters for all its players? Probably not as close as it needs to be.
Kenton Keith, a backup Colts running back and hip-hop artist extrodinaire, was arrested last night after refusing to leave the parking lot of a nightclub that had closed for the night.
The 27-year-old Keith and several others refused to leave and were laughing, dancing and joking.
Police eventually ordered them to put their hands on a vehicle, but Keith refused and took out a cell phone to record the incident. He kept saying, "I'm a Colts player, I'm a Colts player," the report said.
Police handcuffed him when he refused to put his hands behind his back, and he was taken to jail.
The funny part is that Keith played the “Do you know who I am?” card.
Umm... no, not really. Keith is it? You look a little like Michael Vick. I know who he is, but I also know that he’s in jail. (Guess what, Keith, being famous doesn’t always keep you from being arrested.) Oh, wait, I've got it. You’re that running back from the Saskatchewan Roughriders. Yep, that has to be it, because Indy’s running back is definitely Joseph Addai.
In fairness, I do know who Keith is.
He's a second-year NFL player, and he was actually a solid back during limited action last season. I’m just shocked, although I probably shouldn’t be, that a backup running back who played four years in the CFL would do anything to jeopardize his shot at an NFL career. I mean, we all know how much Tony Dungy loves problem players.
Maybe he should have listened to the lyrics of his own song, Go Hard, and "stayed working in the kitchen like his grandmother."
I guess we can at least be happy that he didn't hold true to the line about how he's "been known to keep a cannon in the front seat."
The "rapper" part of this guys persona is enough to devote an entire blog to by itself. If you haven't already, check out his Myspace page.
Besides taking pictures of his guns and money, and rapping about smoking weed (Wow, those are some original ideas.), this guy's motto is "worth a million on the low".
Congrats, Keith. And what better way to make sure that remains the case than to announce it on the internet. Pure genius.
Keith was charged with misdemeanor counts of disorderly conduct, resisting law enforcement, public intoxication and contributing to the delinquency of a minor, because a man he brought to the club with him was 19.
