Miami Dolphin Arrested for California Battery Charges

Miami Dolphins outside linebacker Nawa Koa Misi was arrested on Friday for Battery charges stemming from a California bar fight.

Misi. a second round draft pick in 2010, is being held on a $10,000 bond, but will likely be held until California authorities come to pick him up.  Misi’s lawyer has said that they will waive extradition and enter a plea of not guilty, once in California, where Misi has an off season home.

Team officials are aware of the situation and are investigating at this time.

Misi has shown promise, but has not quite lived up to expectations.  As the 40th overall pick, the team had hoped to plug him in as a true replacement for Jason Taylor rushing from the outside.  Just last week Coach Joe Philbin stated that the team needed to see him make more of an impact on the field.

At this point, it is to early to tell the ramifications of Misi’s actions, both for himself, and his club.d  One thing is for certain, Commissioner Roger Goodell has shown that it does not pay to break the law when you represent the NFL shield.  Expect this to just be the beginning of Misi’s troubles.
