Starting A&M D-lineman suspended after arrest

Kirby Ennis, AJ McCarron AP

Well, at least the Longhorns can say they’re not the only Texas school with legal troubles right now?

Continuing the trend of nearly daily arrests that usually accompany the offseason, starting Texas A&M defensive lineman Kirby Ennis was busted Friday night on charges of discharging/displaying a firearm and disorderly conduct, according to the Brazos County justice website. Other details involving the incident are scarce at this time.

The report states that Ennis was arrested at his apartment and later released on $2,000 bond. He was officially suspended from all team activities on Sunday while more details are gathered.

Ennis started 11 games for the Aggies last season as a junior and recorded 24 tackles.

    At least Sumlin is doing something about it. I think Mack is losing control in Austin.

    See, there are problems elsewhere than Austin.

    Aggies have a coach with class.

    We all know Nicky Satan wouldn’t have done the same.

    He would have just said “your not getting your payment this month”

    It seems that guys on my team aren’t exempt from stupidity either. I hope Sumlin suspends him for the entire offseason. ;)

    DeLoss or Major might get fired tomorrow. Shit is going down in Belmont. These guys don’t all publish university minutes for an emergency meeting unless someone is getting fired for cause.

    And Bev Kearney just added at least one zero in front of the decimal point in her wrongful termination lawsuit.

    As an Aggie, I can only hope they don’t fire DeLoss tomorrow.

    DeLoss isn’t going anywhere. There is too much money being made in Austin right now. Sadly this is what is wrong with the sports program.

    Fitting right in with the SEC!

    Suspensions in the spring mean nothing. If a player’s suspension doesn’t carry over to the fall all it is is a nice vacation for him. The kid is probably glad he doesn’t have to participate in spring practice. A suspeniosn with meaning is one that makes the player miss some games.

    This is nothing. Misdemeanor charges. Unlawful discharge of a firearm within city limits. Fine and court costs.

    Didn’t realize discharging a firearm was against the law in Texas.

    Yep, particularly in city limits. Now in unincorporated parts of a city, in rural areas, or your own property, knock yourself out.

    Has compared to raping little boys, St. Mary co-eds, and having “imaginary” girl friends, SEC administrators would have misdemeanor charges of illegally discharging a firearm all day long.

    S-E-C!, S-E-C!,S-E-C!

    It may depend on whether you hit anyone. Or who you hit.

    Seriously, though, I think amosalanzostagg has it right. Inside the city limits, it’s a no-no. Not a felony like it’d be in NYC, but still a crime. Kind of stupid, too.

    I’m fairly sure there is an exception to the “display/discharge” law even inside city limits. One’s home is typically considered a “last refuge” beyond which no one has to retreat without resorting to self-defense. Not sure if this extends to one’s yard, etc. though. In an apartment complex, nah—not outside the individual’s personal residence.
