COOK COUNTY CRIMINAL COURTHOUSE — Former Denver Broncos player John Moffitt was arrested near River North’s The Underground nightclub after he punched a man in the head and was caught with pot, cocaine and ecstasy, according to prosecutors. Moffitt, 27, who retired from the NFL in November, was charged with two felony drug possession counts in addition to misdemeanor battery and misdemeanor pot possession.

Moffitt, who also played for the Seattle Seahawks, was arrested around 4 a.m. Sunday in the 0-100 block of West Illinois Street after he punched a 40-year-old man in his head and was subsequently nabbed with drugs, according to police and prosecutors.  The victim told police that he had been questioning Moffitt about selling drugs inside the nightclub when Moffitt became “combative” and hit the victim in his head, an arrest report states. Officers arrived and placed Moffitt into custody, after which they discovered he had 10 grams of pot, 1 gram of cocaine and four pills of ecstasy, according to the report and Assistant State’s Attorney Stephanie Gersch.

On his decision to leave the NFL, Moffitt told the New York Times, “I don’t want to risk health for money.” The former guard had sustained several injuries during his time playing for the two teams, according to the Times. In his Twitter profile, he describes himself as a former football player and “Now, active happiness pursuer.” According to police, his last registered address is in Renton, Wash

 

 

 

Hey John, just a little tip man. If you’re carrying a bunch of drugs and someone asks you if you’re selling drugs it’s probably a good idea to just say no and walk away. Kind of one of those situations where you look pretty guilty when you start bashing people’s faces and making a huge scene after a pretty simple question.  Then again, you also walked away from the NFL at the height of your career so who am I to question your decision making right?

 

 

PS

In his Twitter profile, he describes himself as a former football player and “Now, active happiness pursuer.”

 

10 grams of pot, a gram of coke and some ecstasy is one hell of a way to pursue happiness.
