Archie Goodwin arrested at a skating rink

Suns-Archie-Goodwin

Well, here’s some bad news: Archie Goodwin was arrested earlier this month for disorderly conduct and refusal to submit to arrest at an Arkansas skating rink. Yes, a skating rink.

According to police, Archie was leaving the Little Rock skating rink around 11 p.m. on May 4 when a state trooper witnessed him cursing and “exhibiting aggressive gestures” toward another person. The trooper had to tell Goodwin to quit cursing twice, and when he tried to take him into custody, Goodwin tried to break away. He was then booked into a Sherwood, Arkansas jail. He has a court date on June 3.

Did he lose at limbo or something?

    So he was arrested because he would not quit cursing? Last I checked, we have freedom of speech.

      Yes, but not freedom from consequence

      Korean Tacos, you can say whatever you want and police cannot arrest you for it. You can go to a park and cuss in front of little kids, does not matter.

      Haha, you might reconsider that foolish statement. The 1st Amendment does NOT cover pornography nor prevent a Disturbing the Peace Charge & as this was PRIVATE PROPERTY, the skating rink, you really have no case…. tell you what, show up at a Kroger or your mom’s house & curse & see what happens when you don’t stop when asked.

      One problem with America now a days. Too many freedoms. Everyone thinks they can do whatever they want with no consequences. Sad thing is, most of them win in court.

      Too many freedoms? There’s really no such thing. And even if you think there is, 21st century America is definitely not an example of it. I guess you missed the whole “NSA spying on it’s own citizens” thing? That doesn’t sound too free to me.

      The charges will get dropped, the 1st amendment means the government cannot sensor you, the only way the charges stick is if the owner of the skating rink presses charges. As in he was asked to leave because he was out of line, a cop can’t just walk up to you on private property and tell you to stop saying something, unless the owner of that property makes a complaint that is ba violation of his rights as an american.

    Arkansas is a wiered place, cursing? When’s the last time you saw the ksp staking out the skating rink? Just an odd story.

      “exhibiting aggressive gestures” toward another person is allowed in Arkansas if you are a short, portly kid displaying such behavior towards a UK basketball player at the end of a hard-fought basketball game.

      You really, as a UF fan, want to talk about players’ records of legal trouble and bad behavior? Irony is a concept you should really look into sometime. Personally, I think swearing at someone at a roller rink is a little less serious than murdering people like Aaron Hernandez, but maybe that’s just me…

    There is just no excuse for such gross stupidity. If the officer says stop, just stop. It doesn’t take much effort but, apparently, it takes more intelligence that was available this time.

      For some odd reason my comments get moderated all the time but you will allow the posting of someone who has just insulted the people that pay your salary….nice. As for Durrrrmass….do you really want to go there? How old is Archie….20? He still has some growing up to do.

      These comments are pointless unless you mention your team. Also, most UK fans are not naïve enough to believe every player is a saint. However, Cal has done a good job bringing in good kids. Occasionally they’ll make mistakes. A lot of people made dumb mistakes like this at that age.

    When you make it out of Arkansas, you should move your family and never go back. Nothing good can happen.

    Fortunately for him he’s now part of the 1% and will experience a very different justice system than the rest of us. I’m sure he was bailed out within an hour and the worst he will do is community service.

      You think he deserves more than community service for this? Dude said some obscenities and then tried to avoid getting arrested…

      It’s not like he was shooting at people or anything, for God sake. Rich or poor, that really doesn’t seem to deserve anything more than a very minor slap on the wrist to me.

    Problems like these with former UK players are magnified because the vast majority are in the NBA unlike UL and IU. Typically, you don’t make headlines behaving like this when you’re working at the skating rink rather than making the money to buy it.

Get out of your double wide, turn the Nascar off and stop beating your wife for the beer being too warm, and maybe you can expand your mind and stop being a racist.
