Past, present Bills arrested this week

The Buffalo Bills have been an excellent source of entertainment for bored police officers during the 2008-2009 off-season.  Adding to a tumultuous off-season full of arrests, two more Bills - one past, one present - were arrested this week.

Hall of Fame DE Bruce Smith was charged with drunken driving yesterday after a cop stopped Smith for speeding in Virginia.  The issue is the latest in a long and well-publicized line of alcohol-related issues for the NFL's all-time leading sack artist.

In a far more bizarre story, the Bills' current starting fullback, Corey McIntyre, was arrested nearly two months after allegedly exposing himself and masturbating outside of the home of a 59-year old woman in Port St. Lucie, Florida.  McIntyre was released on $10,000 bail, and his agent, Brett J. Tessler, has fiercely denied any wrongdoing on McIntyre's part.

These two arrests are the fourth and fifth of players affiliated with the Bills organization this season.  Safety Ko Simpson was arrested in early January after interfering with police efforts to arrest friends of his in South Carolina.  Starting running back Marshawn Lynch was arrested in February on a firearms charge, eventually leading to legal punishment and a three-game suspension from the NFL.  Finally, in April, strong safety and defensive captain Donte Whitner was tased and arrested outside of a Cleveland night club for aggravated disorderly conduct and resisting police - charges he has since plead not guilty to.

This adds more clout to the question in the poll below: do the Bills have a serious "character" problem?
