A couple of Saints players have found themselves in trouble today. Nola.com is reporting that Biren Ealy and Kolomona Kapanui were arrested for obscenity, disturbing the peace by being drunk in public and lewd conduct by urinating in public and exposing themselves
The charges took place early Sunday morning, just after 1 a.m. at an apartment complex in Elmwood. The story is that two women had just pulled up to the Palmetto Creek apartments in the 5100 block of Citrus Boulevard when one of the women saw two men urinating in the parking lot.
The woman who was the passenger told the men, who appeared to be drunk, to stop. At that point, Ealy allegedly turned around and exposed himself to the woman and started making “lewd” comments, Fortunato said.
A few moments later, Kapanui also turned around, facing the woman driving the car, and started to fondle himself while making comments, as well, police allege. The women started screaming for help and called 911.
Ealy is a wide receiver for the Saints, while Kapanui is a tight end.
“We are aware of the situation,” Saints spokesman Greg Bensel said in an email. “Our security department is working with the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office on this matter. We will have no further comment.”
Ealy was picked up by the Saints in January after spending two years with the Titans, mostly on the practice squad. He has appeared in four games, with one reception for six yards in his career.
Kapanui, who attended West Texas A&M, was signed to the Saints’ practice squad last season in late November but did not appear in a game. He was originally signed as an undrafted free agent by the Browns last year but was released following the preseason.
