Miami Dolphins DE Randy Starks charged with aggravated battery

Would you believe he had 13 people in a vehicle and a woman sitting in his lap. From the Sun-Sentinel-

Miami Dolphins defensive end Randy Starks was arrested and charged with aggravated battery early Sunday morning after bumping his slow-moving truck into an officer who was trying to stop him on Ocean Drive, according to The Miami Herald.

Here’s what happened, according to a police report obtained by the newspaper.

Starks was driving a black freight-liner through bumper-to-bumper traffic around midnight when an officer noticed there were 13 people in the four-person vehicle, including a woman sitting on his lap.

The officer walked up to the car and knocked on the side window; Starks kept driving. Starks finally stopped when the officer knocked on the side door. Then the car accelerated, causing the vehicle to hit the officer and pin him against against a vehicle in another lane.

A freightliner may have room for 13. On the other hand, driving with someone in your lap or striking someone with your vehicle are clearly dumb things to do. Will the altercation affect Starks career with the Dolphins?
