Davone Bess has been posting strange pictures to social media and now we can add a mugshot to the portfolio. According to CBS in Florida, Bess was arrested at 6:19 a.m. this morning for “assaulting an officer/firefighter” at the Fort Lauderdale airport.
Bess missed the last two Browns games this season while dealing with personal matters. The Browns traded for Bess this off-season and gave him a $14.18 million contract with $5.75 million guaranteed. He is set to make just over $3 million in the upcoming season, but it remains to be seen if he’ll be able to (or allowed to) play between photos showing apparent marijuana use and now an assault arrest on top of it.
The Browns move to bring Davone Bess to Cleveland was frequently referenced as a good move and a no-brainer. Bess has really done a lot in the past year to make this look like a horrendous deal via hindsight.
