This past weekend Miami Dolphins defensive end Derrick Shelby was arrested for touching a woman without her permission. He was charged with resisting arrest without violence and trespass.

According to reports, a security guard at a nightclub in Fort Lauderdale said Shelby touched a woman without her consent. He said the football player was asked to leave several times but he refused. He then went after security asking him What was he going to do?

When the police arrived Shelby resisted arrest which caused him to get tasered three times. As a result he suffered a swollen lower lip and a bruise to the face.

Shelby was released on a $100 bond. He also pleaded not guilty to the charges against him. 

Unfortunately, just like Adrian Peterson, Ray Rice, Jonathan Dwyer, Da'rick Rogers and other NFL players, Shelby has also been suspended.

Joe Philbin, coach for Miami Dolphins, issued a statement expressing his disappointment for Shelby's arrest. He said everyone in the NFL is held to high standards of conduct and professionalism. After discussing the matter it was decided that Shelby will be placed on Indefinite Club Suspension.

"Based on my conversations with Derrick and the information we have thus far, Derrick will be placed on Indefinite Club Suspension. When we have completed all of the necessary diligence we will make a final determination on his discipline," Coach Philbin said.

Too many NFL players are getting caught up in criminal activities and it's not looking good for the organization. But many would wonder why are they the only ones that's being targeted? While the news reporters are calling themselves doing their job by keeping NFL players in the negative spotlight, pretty soon there will be no team left to compete with!

Shelby and the other players are no different than any one else. Their profession is an athlete but they are still humans! Noone is perfect!
