After getting arrested over the weekend and charged with battery on a police officer, disorderly conduct resisting arrest and trespassing the Dolphins have decided they have had enough of defensive linemen Fred Evans. The team announced on Thursday that they were releasing Evans, a move that comes to no shock after the weekend arrest. Evans was a seventh-round pick last season and was expected to be in the mix on the D-line, possibly backing up nose tackle Keith Traylor.
Officers had to go so far as to use a taser gun on Evans when trying to arrest him on Saturday. Evans was reportedly arguing with a taxi driver, and the police report says that Evans refused to get out of the cab. They tried to remove him, and that is when the officers and Evans got into a scuffle. The police report states one officer was bitten on his left wrist and received several bruises, while a second officer received bruises to her left knee.
As if the conduct issue is not enough to leave Evans unemployed, It was later learned that he is on probation in Colorado County, Texas, for possession of marijuana.
