Jason Peters’ 2011 mugshot 

Jason Peters was arrested for drag racing and resisting arrest in Louisiana early Wednesday. From The News Star:

Philadelphia Eagles offensive tackle and five-time Pro Bowler Jason Peters was arrested in Monroe early Wednesday morning after reportedly drag racing and resisting a police officer by flight.

According to the arrest affidavit, Deputy L. Deal observed a white Camaro and blue sedan at the red light of U.S. 165 North and Central Street. When the light turned green, the Camaro and sedan accelerated and appeared to be racing.

The deputy activated the emergency lights and attempted to pull over the vehicles. The driver of the sedan immediately pulled over, but Peters, who was driving the Camaro, accelerated to a high rate of speed, exited U.S. 165 North and proceeded eastbound on Interstate 20.

The Camaro exceeded speeds of 100 mph while the deputy was in pursuit. The Camaro then exited Interstate 20 at the Pecanland Mall exit. The Camaro finally stopped at the parking lot of 4209 Pecanland Mall Drive — the address for the shopping center that includes Target and Petco.

Insanely dumb. So incredibly dumb. This is Peters’ second arrest (he was arrested in 2011 for refusing to turn down the music in his car). He’s so dumb that you have to wonder what really caused him to tear his Achilles for a second time in 2012– why, exactly, did he fall off that Roll-A-About? Anyway, that’s speculation. And so too is this: Tuesday afternoon, Fletcher Cox tweeted a picture of two cars with the caption, “Normal day at the shop gettn the toys ready for tonight.” I asked him about it at the time:

He never responded.

Cox is at home in Mississippi. He’s from Yazoo City and is hosting a clinic there this weekend. Yazoo is only about 100 miles from Monroe, where Peters was arrested:

Seems more than coincidental, but we can’t be sure.

Cox works on cars at a family auto shop and has said he frequents the “drag strip.”

The Eagles issued a statement on Peters to Les Bowen of Philly.com:

“We are aware of the reports that Jason Peters was arrested this morning in Lousiana,” an Eagles spokesman said. “We have been in contact with Jason and due to the legal nature of this matter, we will not have any further comment at this point.”

Not like the Eagles need him or anything.

    Three words about what Jason Peters did: Rock. Fucking. STUPID.

    What was this fool thinking, if he was thinking at all? Bad enough he was drag racing on city streets, but to try and escape from the cops only compounded his stupidity to the nth degree. Thank God he didn’t lose control and crash, becoming another cautionary tale like Pelle Lindbergh and Jerome Brown. If Peters felt the need for speed, he could’ve gone to a race track, or hopped a plane to Germany and spent some quality time on the Nurburgring. But city streets? Jesus! He’s damn lucky not to have gotten himself killed or killed anyone else, then his monumentally fat ass would REALLY be in a sling! Peters needs to be punished, and punished hard!

    • with all the money he makes, he cant spend it by safely and legally utilizing a track? no, this fuckhead has to go out on local roads and endanger other motorists and himself with reckless and careless driving. i have zero patience for assholes that drag race! i know he is crucial to the success and performance of our offensive, BUT I WOULD CUT THIS ASSHOLE TODAY! it’ll send a message to the rest of this team. borrowing a quote from my high school social studies teacher, “if you act like an asshole, then you’ll be treated like an asshole.”

  9. Let’s see, in Flecth’s picture I don’t see a Camaro or a blue sedan. So the only connection is that Cox & Peters are both Eagles, were within 100 miles of each other, and like fast cars. This makes me think about McCoy’s incident with kicking that broad off his party bus last year. Based on Kyle’s logic any Eagle within 100 miles of Shady that night, who also likes buses full of club rats, should be under suspicion for being involved with said incident. Top notch investigative work right here…..

  10. He was speeding like that to throw his coke & weed out the window before the cops found it.

  11. You are a dickface

    This team is a bunch of dickfaces.

    • i have been an eagles fan for 30+ years. there have been some horrible teams and there have been some disappointing teams during that time. however, never has there been a team that i disliked. you hit the nail on the head by summing up most of this team as dickfaces. hopefully, kelly weeds out the dickfaces!

      • Not to excuse this behavior, but athletes in this town have been doing stupid shit like this for years, we just never heard about it as quickly or in as much detail as we do now due to the advent of social media.
        In addition to Jerome Brown and Pelle Lindbergh, I seem to remember some idiot Phillies wrecking a Mercedes while drunk and at a bachelor party.
        And Dutch Daulton is still an icon in this town despite being mixed up in that incident.

        • You’re wrong. Dutch traveled back in time using energy vibrations and made Nails call a cab that night. Then he did some coke on Saturn with Mayan ghosts. It’s all in his book.

        • someone earlier labeled this as hood behavior. i dont see it as hood behavior. i see it for what it is and that is asshole behavior. all those people above are assholes for having done what they did regardless of color, age, sport, past or present athlete, etc., especially those whose reckless decision to drag race claimed the life of others. it wasnt too long ago that ryan dunn killed himself and his passenger because of his careless decision to speed recklessly down a highway road! i think this puts the eagles in a position where they may have to cut him to send a message to the rest of the team.

            That wouldn’t be a bad idea, sadly, it won’t happen. Chip Kelly won’t have the balls to cut Peters because he needs offensive linemen of Peters’ caliber, even if Chip were to suggest cutting the guy, Howie Roseman would overrule him because Peters is a valuable commodity as a Pro Bowler. Then there’s the player’s union which would raise an unholy stink if the Birds sent Peters packing before he has his day in court. I suspect the most that will happen to Peters is he’ll be hit with a piddling fine, but no loss of playing time. So, yeah, chances are Peters will get away with what he had done.

  12. How great would it be if Chip just sent this moron, Vick and DJax packing and instituted a strict “no ghetto” policy on our team? Pretty fucking great.

    His def getting special treatment cause his a pro athlete no mention of expired license, registration and no insurance or no mention of the first black guy to have all 3

  14. Coach Parcells, whats the first thing you do when you take over a new team ?

    Parcells: ” I get rid of all the stupid guys”

    Jerome brown used to carry an Uzi in his gym bag.

  15. Dutch Dalton turned out to be a wingnut.
    I know a woman whose father and uncles worked at the Phila Navy Shipyard.
    They told her “Something did happen to that ship, and Einstein was there”

    NASA scientist Von Braun said the last card the Govt will play is the “alien invasion” card.

    • Will you shut the fuck up? Everytime youre on here you dilute the conversation with your big brother horse shit…Christ on a fuckin stick, were talking about an offensive lineman and youre bringing up wild conspiracy theories and the government…Do me a favor and take all these “truths” youre so sure of and go write a science fiction novel– Do something productive and make money with your crazy bullshit like Ayn Rand or L Ron Hubbard.

  16. Jason peters loves burgers

  17. What he really should run from is the urge to shave his facial hair into the most ridiculous looking goatee I’ve ever seen. Just by looking at him I say to myself. “that is one dumb motherfucker right there.”

  18. I love how everyone is “shocked” at how dumb these players can be at times…..hate to break it to yas but these Mondays ain’t on the team for their smarts…..the vast majority of NFL players are borderline retarded, w the exception of Mr.Peters, who is a fill-ON FUCKING RETARD

  19. What in God’s name is on his upper lip? Dude needs to get a protractor to straighten that thing out!

  20. those stupid fake balls on the back of that car… smh

  21. This is my fault.

    From the looks of that map, he was heading to Philadelphia! Making stops to visit his starting QB in Vicksburg and his WR in Jackson. His career path will obviously land him in Canton. And f**k Cleveland.

  24. I cut you goat tee strip under you nostril…not centered. Ok? Ok..

  25. rarely leave a response|I rarely leave} remarks|I usually do not leave} a bunch of} remarks}, but i did a few searching and wound up here %BLOG_TITLE%. And I do have {a few questions|a couple of questions|2 questions} for you {if you usually do not mind|if it’s allright}. Could it be just me or does it look as if like a few of the remarks appear like they are left by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are writing on other places, I would lie to follow everything new you have to post. Could you make a list of every one of all your social sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

  26. Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you can do with a few pics to drive the message home a little bit, but instead of that, this is wonderful blog. An excellent read. I will certainly be back.

  27. I have read a few good stuff here. Definitely worth bookmarking for revisiting. I surprise how a lot attempt you put to make one of these excellent informative site.
