Buckeyes Nathan Williams Caught Shoplifting
Total Pro Sports – Nathan Williams, Defensive lineman for the Ohio State Buckeyes was arrested Wednesday for shoplifting. He was caught in a Dayton, Ohio Mall with $80.00 of stolen merchandise from Macy’s. He supposedly stole 3 shirts for his friend and took the rap for his buddy who has had previous charges on his record.
“I took the blame for somebody; I didn’t do anything,” Williams said. “If he got in trouble for this, he would be in jail. So I took his back.”
Nathan Williams has now been charged with a first degree misdemeanor, with a possible sentence of up to 6 months in jail and a $1,000 fine.
Makes sense, why not potentially ruin your football career and take the blame for an idiotic friend who could not afford $80.00 worth of shirts. Logical reasoning here would have said “No, you shouldn’t do this” or “I will buy these shirts for you if you need it”.
When will these college athletes begin to think with their head?
Do you see why we say its may be feasible to pay NCAA College Athletes a weekly allowance based on the revenue made by their team. If players can not receive gifts from potential agents or managers how can stars like Tim Tebow or Sam Bradford realistically hold part time jobs and live a normal life with all the hype around them.
Schools should start sharing the wealth so events like the Nathan Williams Shoplifting case would not occur.
