According to a Broward Sheriff’s Office arrest report, Bess was approached by Deputy Thomas O’Brien inside the Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport terminal because he was "acting irrationally, dancing, singing with his pants repeatedly falling down."
"I inquired if he was all right and received no response," O’Brien said in the report, adding later that Bess "appeared to be looking through me" while they talked.
Bess, 28, then picked up a cup of hot coffee from a counter and squeezed it, "which caused the cup to break with the liquid going all over my uniform," the deputy wrote. Bess then took up a "fighting stance," and O’Brien said he hit the player on the leg with a baton to no effect.
"Bess proceeded to take off his shirt and once again took up a fighting stance refusing my repeated orders to get on the ground," O’Brien said, adding that Bess was finally taken into custody when backup officers arrived.
Sheriff’s office records show that Bess is charged with simple assault on an officer, resisting arrest without violence and disorderly conduct. It was not immediately clear whether Bess had a lawyer. Browns spokesman Zak Gilbert said the team was aware of the arrest and was gathering information.

According to reports, Romo has been cuffed due to an issue at the Vegas Airport. The incident was summoned after Romo failed to present a valid ID of himself (Who knows Romo in Vegas anyway?) and was brought to a Transportation Security Administration officer, where he apparently ’lost his temper’.
Romo was then detained and brought to the airports Police Station, and was given acclaim of violation of airport rules ... and then let go. Romo was denied flying privileges that day and was escorted off airport grounds.
Taking the high road, Romo has fully apologized for his behavior, according to Matt Synder on behalf of CBBSports.
I would like to sincerely apologize about the recent events at the Las Vegas airport which brought negative attention to the San Francisco Giants organization and its fans. I love and respect the Giants, my teammates and our fans and promise to conduct myself in the future in the San Francisco Giants Way.

The ironic part of this arrest was that it wasn’t too long ago that Romo sported a shirt titling "I just look illegal". Well Romo, you got your wish.

Geno Hayes Arrested: Buccaneers Linebacker Booked After Nightclub Incident
TAMPA, Fla. – Tampa Bay linebacker Geno Hayes was jailed Monday on disorderly conduct and trespassing charges after a dispute at a popular nightclub, the third arrest of a Buccaneers player in the past two months.
Coach Raheem Morris called the string of run-ins with the law frustrating, but also said Hayes will play Sunday when the surprising Bucs (8-5) try to bolster their playoff hopes against the Detroit Lions.
The third-year pro out of Florida State was booked into Hillsborough County Jail hours after the Bucs returned home from a 17-16 victory at Washington.
Tampa police said the 6-foot-1, 226-pound Hayes became aggressive while intervening in a dispute that led to two other men being asked to leave the entrance to the Blue Martini Lounge.
The linebacker himself was ejected after ignoring an order to go back into the club, instead remaining at the entry "making derogatory statements and menacingly staring" at police and security personnel, authorities said.
According to the police report, an officer used an electronic control device on Hayes when the linebacker returned to the lounge and became disruptive while a friend was looking for a credit card the athlete said he left behind.
Hayes was arrested shortly after 2 a.m. and released on $750 bond about three hours later. He was available for comment at the team's practice facility on Monday.

Kentucky football’s QB Mike Hartline arrested after alleged assault
Charges include alcohol intoxication
BY BRETT DAWSON • BDAWSON@COURIER-JOURNAL.COM • DECEMBER 10, 2010
LEXINGTON, Ky. – University of Kentucky quarterback Mike Hartline was arrested early Friday and pleaded not guilty to charges of disorderly conduct and alcohol intoxication after an incident in which a woman told police she was assaulted by Hartline and a female UK student.
After further investigation, Lexington police elected not to pursue an assault charge unless the alleged victim files a criminal complaint.
Hartline was arrested at 3:23 a.m. after police were called to 1103 Crescent Ave. to investigate a disturbance.
Officers spotted Hartline outside a residence at that address involved in an "active, verbal disorder with several" females, according to a uniform citation report. Hartline was "unsteady on his feet" and had "a strong odor of alcohol on his person," according to the report.
Kentucky law prohibits an officer from making a misdemeanor arrest without witnessing the misdemeanor, Roberts said.
Hartline and Carnes, a UK cheerleader, were arrested for alcohol intoxication and disorderly conduct, Roberts said, after officers determined they were "visibly intoxicated and posed a potential danger to themselves or others."
The incident began, according to the police report, as Hartline and "several others" rode home in a cab from the Tin Roof, a bar near UK’s campus. After they arrived at Crescent Avenue, they began "yelling and cursing at each other," according to the report.
In addition to disorderly conduct and alcohol intoxication, Hartline, 22, was charged with failing to notify the Department of Transportation of an address change. Carnes, 20, also was charged with using or attempting to use a false ID to obtain alcohol.

Sources tell The Daily Gamecock that Geathers attended Club Ice while celebrating the birthday of fellow teammate and safety Chris Culliver.
Geathers is charged with resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and public drunkenness.

"You couldn't do damage like this with a baseball bat -- it's worse," said Alejandro Rojas, general manager of Balboa World Class Clinic, the hospital where a cabdriver took Meagher afterward. Rojas said that it was unclear what beyond fists may have been used in the attack but that upon arriving, the 6-foot, 170-pound Meagher's lower jaw was broken in several places.

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Notre Dame tight end Will Yeatman was charged Wednesday with misdemeanor counts of drunken driving and criminal recklessness after allegedly driving a car on a campus sidewalk with his headlights off in the early morning hours.
The charges were filed a day after Yeatman, a 19-year-old sophomore, was suspended indefinitely from the football and lacrosse teams for an undisclosed violation of team policy. He remains enrolled in school, university spokesman Dennis Brown said.
A probable cause affidavit said Yeatman, a 6-foot-6, 263-pound tight end from San Diego, was arrested at 2:49 a.m. on Jan. 28 by campus police. Yeatman, who was released on $250 cash bond, had a blood-alcohol content of 0.11 percent, said Catherine Wilson, spokeswoman for the prosecutor’s office. A blood-alcohol content of 0.08 percent is considered too drunk to drive under Indiana law.
Yeatman could not be reached for comment Wednesday because there was no telephone listing for him. A message seeking comment was left Wednesday by The Associated Press on an answering machine at the home of his parents.
Coach Charlie Weis declined to comment following a news conference Wednesday to announce signings of high school seniors to letters of intent, saying he would address the issue Friday when he holds a news conference to discuss other football topics.
If convicted of criminal recklessness, Yeatman could face up to a year in jail, Wilson said. The misdemeanor alcohol charge carries a penalty of up to 60 days in jail.
Typically, the prosecutor’s office reviews such cases to determine whether those charged qualify for a pretrial diversion program, Wilson said.
"It depends on the defendant’s criminal history, the particulars of the case and so forth," she said. "It will be determined if it is appropriate."
Yeatman is scheduled to appear in St. Joseph Superior Court on Feb. 25.
The arrest was first reported Wednesday by the South Bend Tribune, before the charges were filed. It is not unusual for it to take longer than a week between an arrest and charges formally being filed, Wilson said.

Footballer Joey Barton to spend New Year in a cell as court refuses bail
By LIZ HULL - More by this author »
Last updated at 21:36pm on 28th December 2007
Shamed footballer Joey Barton will spend New Year behind bars after he was remanded in custody yesterday over an alleged street fight.
The Newcastle United player was arrested in the early hours of Wednesday outside a 24-hour McDonalds following an all-night drinking session in Liverpool.
The incident could see the £45,000-a-week midfielder sacked. Sources at Newcastle said the club was examining his contract to see whether it could be terminated in light of his arrest.
Magistrates were told yesterday that Barton, 25, "snapped and lashed out" after being goaded by other diners at the McDonalds at around 5.30am. The confrontation continued outside.
Police were called after Barton was spotted on CCTV allegedly attacking two teenagers, who cannot be named for legal reasons. One of them was reportedly punched unconscious.
He was taken to hospital but has since been released.
Magistrates refused to grant Barton - whose half brother, Michael, 18, was convicted of the racist murder of Anthony Walker - bail after hearing details of two previous alleged assaults for which he is awaiting trial.
They remanded the Liverpoolborn player into custody until next Thursday, meaning he will miss two Premier League games for Newcastle.
On hearing the decision, Barton, who has made one substitute appearance for England, turned to a guard beside him and held his hands out to be cuffed.
Jayne Hughes, prosecuting, said Barton had been charged with common assault and affray. "The CCTV clearly shows Mr Barton involved in altercations with members of the public going about their business," she said.
"He was seen pacing around Church Street and lashing out indiscriminately at people walking around and standing around."
Barton’s brother, Andrew, 19, was charged with assault occasioning actual bodily harm and another woman, Nadine Wilson, 27, was charged with common assault and affray.
Newcastle declined to comment, although insiders said manager Sam Allardyce was "livid".
Refusing Barton, of Widnes, Cheshire, bail magistrate Carol Myers said: "I have to consider the safety of the public - you lashed out indiscriminately."
Barton is already awaiting trial for assault next year following a training ground clash with his former team-mate at Manchester City, Ousamane Dabo.
He is also due to appear in court in Liverpool next month on a charge of criminal damage following an argument with a taxi driver in 2005.
