More off the field trouble in the League, as on Sunday morning Green Bay Packer linebacker Nick Barnett was arrested in Appleton on battery charges. Sources say that Barnett, a 5th-year linebacker was involved in a physical altercation at a nightclub. He was arrested about 2 a.m. by the Appleton Police Department and was placed in Outagamie County Jail.
The Packers released the following statement about the situation: “We are aware of the incident in Appleton involving Nick Barnett. The Packers organization is going to defer further comment until we have had a chance to speak with Nick and gather more facts.”
