Mallett was taken into custody just before 7:00 p.m.
The New England Patriots drafted the former college star in the third round of the 2011 NFL draft. He floated around the league, starting several games for the Houston Texans and, most recently, the Baltimore Ravens.
He recently accepted an invite to the upcoming XFL draft in October. Mallett competed in the XFL’s Summer Showcase in Tampa Bay earlier this year as well.
This is definitely bad timing, to say the least. When Vince McMahon forst announced the XLF he stated that they weren’t interested in players with criminal records. The league has since backed away from that position, but this may be one issue too many.
