Ka’Deem Carey ‘pleased… unjustified charges’ dropped

Ka'Deem Carey AP

Friday, it was announced by the city of Tucson that all charges had been dropped against Ka’Deem Carey, which stemmed from a domestic violence incident last December involving his pregnant ex-girlfriend.

In announcing that the charges had been dropped against the Arizona running back, the city stated that “[a] key witness for the prosecution is unavailable, and even if the witness were available, there is no substantial likelihood that a judge would convict Mr. Carey.”

In their own statement following the city’s decision, Carey’s attorneys said the following:

“We are very pleased with the City Attorney’s decision to unilaterally dismiss the charges against Ka’Deem. Ka’Deem did nothing wrong and the City Attorney’s determination to drop the case is an acknowledgement of that fact. It is unfortunate that this proper and obvious conclusion was not reached prior to the filing of the unjustified charges.

“With great humility, Ka’Deem thanks God for this correct outcome and extends his utmost gratitude to his family, friends, teammates, coaches and the entire Wildcat Nation for their unwavering support during this very difficult time. While Ka’Deem is thankful to be so thoroughly vindicated, he remains steadfastly focused on earning his degree and a successful 2013 football season.”

Carey led the nation in rushing in 2012 with 1,929 yards and participated in spring practice despite the legal situation.

    Think Ka’Deem will support his ex-girlfriends child that they are bringing into this world? My guess is probably NOT. I guess the HC saw the depth chart and made a few phone-calls…….

    He’s legally on the hook to support the child for the next 18 years if it’s his. Do you come by your cynicism naturally or is it the product of being an SEC fan? Just curious.

    He’ll probably knock up some more young ladies before his time is up b/c that is just how some low life, non-educated, perpetual welfare people act. The more kids they pop out, the more money the government gives them. I don’t think of myself as a cynic but rather a realist. While the trend is beginning to change slowly, most black children are raised by a single parent and many others by their Grandmother. Last I read, it was over 50% but trending downward. This punk is no college student; an athlete yes, college student, NO!

    Gamecocker, maybe you should reel it in a little bit.

    Whether the allegations are true or not, that girl is dumb. Why would she seek to take down his career before he’s gotten paid? At least wait till he signs a fat contract, then you can get bigger blades for that impala

    Tell me what I stated that is incorrect? Honestly, I’m sick and tired of all this political correct nonsense. I have no intention of reeling any of my comments in because some may feel they are politically incorrect. Want me to change my POV, than stop having kids out of wedlock. I think it is morally reprehensible. Sorry but that’s more POV and trash like Kanye West and the Kardashian woman are horrible role models and people. A large part of the problems in our country/society today stems from lack of morality. And no, I am not a holy-roller.

    It’s not that I think your entirely incorrect, it’s more the presentation. Your putting out a get off my lawn vibe. Not everything deserves a rant, save it up got more of an affect.

    suckcocker: We are all behind the push for gay marriage to be legal, you would think that someone like you who this benefits, would be more tolerant of other people and the issues.

    What a witch. Accusing a guy of something like that. C’mon, you just don’t.

  10. thegamecocker says: Jun 17, 2013 9:11 AM


    Well, there you go again….remember on another post you apologized to Mr. John Taylor for “going overboard”? You are doing it again. I will take the “high-road” by not making an inciting comment back to you. Have a good-day, sir.

  11. paulhargis53 says: Jun 17, 2013 12:33 PM

    I apologized to him, not you.

    You’re a detestable person and is what is wring with these boards, and life in general.

    Just disappear. Trust me, you will not be missed.

  12. thegamecocker says: Jun 17, 2013 12:42 PM

    You apologized to everyone on that board. May I suggest you proofread your posts. You spelled “wrong” incorrectly. Again, have a good-day, sir.

  13. paulhargis53 says: Jun 17, 2013 1:50 PM

    Dummy….Word for word, here is what I posted to BEN KERCHAVEL.

    Sorry BEN, I got a little carried away, just got sick of this guy.

    So loser, you can stop lying about what I said. Also, when you are reduced to pointing out typos, you know you’ve lost the battle.

    You’re called out by more than me on here you neatness. You’re a bigoted, racist, ignorant hick.
    May I suggest a tree branch and a shank of rope?

  14. thegamecocker says: Jun 17, 2013 1:57 PM


    I have an idea….tell if you like it. I will let you respond to my post one last time so that you can say “you got me last”. Moving forward, I won’t respond to any of your posts if you will do the same for me. Does that work for you? For the record when state that you “apologized to everyone” on the board, what is meant is that by apologizing in this public forum, you are apologizing to everyone who was insulted. Notice how I am not resorting to name calling or insults. Just making a statement. Let me know if you are OK with this plan of action of mine. Have a good day, sir.

  15. paulhargis53 says: Jun 17, 2013 3:03 PM

    When you apologize in a public forum and the apology is directed at a specific person(Ben in this case) how do you not comprehend that. If I was apologizing to all posters, I would have said eveyone or everybody. Yeesh!

    Listen short porch, I’m not agreeing to anything. If you are going to continue to post the inaneness that you do.(sweeping generalizations, stereotypical racist ,bigoted crap) I’m going to continue to call you out for it. I could care less if you call me names or not.What are your little feelings hurt?

    Stop posting dumb things like your original post on this thread and you won’t hear a peep out of me.

    Rope, tree limb…please give it a thought.
