Clarett Chronicles

By on 8.10.06 | 11:05AM

For those following the ongoing saga of Maurice Clarett (the former Ohio State football star), he was arrested again yesterday:

When police ran into Clarett this time, officers said he was driving erratically and carrying an arsenal that included three semiautomatic handguns and an AK-47- type assault rifle in the front seat - all loaded.

A highway chase ensued, then ended in the early hours Wednesday when police spiked the tires of his vehicle.

Even then, officers said they could not easily subdue Clarett because the bulletproof vest he was wearing thwarted their stun guns.

It took several officers and Mace to get the 6-foot, 245-pounder into handcuffs. The struggle continued as he kicked at the doors of the transport vehicle that took him away.
