Jaguars Player Arrested at Miami Beach Club

In Florida, the Orlando Sentinel recently reported that Jaguars running back Fred Taylor has been charged with disorderly conduct. Taylor was arrested early on a Saturday night in August near Club Cristal in Fort Lauderdale Beach.

According to Fort Lauderdale Beach police spokesperson Juan Sanchez, police released Taylor after he promised to appear in court. A spokesperson for the Jaguars said the football team declined to comment on Taylor’s arrest.

This incident comes soon after former Jaguars player Jimmy Smith was arrested in Jacksonville and charged with DUI, having an open container, and possession of marijuana. He was suspended from four games in 2003 for drug use.

Taylor himself has a few previous run-ins with the law. As a Florida student, he and three teammates were charged in 1995 with using the number off a credit card receipt and illegally charging pizza on the card. The following year, he was charged with petty theft and got suspected for four games.

William is an amazing lawyer on the first day he took my case from a felony to a misdemeanor. He always answered my calls and text messages, never a problem. He was always the one in court not sending someone else, unlike my last lawyer. 10/10 would recommend. If I ever have any other problems, he will be the first person I call. Shane B.
